If you have kids, I highly recommend enrolling your kids in Ancient ways. The staff at Ancient ways are all great if youre struggling during your training. the Instructors will give you one on one time. With you each instructor has their own teaching style, which all leads up to the same Curriculum . The staff are also very nice and the DoJo is always clean . I also recommend Ancient ways because of How peaceful and positive . Meditation also helps a lot to take my mind off, of all the negatives things outside of training. Also the training is very fun, I have gained a lot of life lessons, that will stick with me . Also the code helps a lot because it teaching Respect, and Discipline etc... Overall I highly recommend Ancient ways . Thank you to Master Brown and Mrs. Tanja and the rest of the instructors, for helping me accomplish my goal .

Ancient Ways changed my life and the way I view myself and the rest of the world. Being a martial artist gave me confidence, humility, and patience (along with so much more) in a way that nothing else could have. I am forever grateful for the people I met and the experiences I gained there. Ancient Ways teaches that martial arts is a way of life, and that philosophy will stick with me forever.

You will not find a more personal satisfying experience in martial arts than Ancient Ways. Master Brown injects enthusiasm and confidence in students young and old. He programs a belief system into each student that forces them to trust in themselves and their current and future abilities. It positively affects every aspect of your life. My time with Master Brown is held in the same regards as going to college and starting a career as both benefitted from the philosophical teachings that came from his studio. It's not just weapons and kicking and punching... it's a life confidence tool.

Excellent teaching of Martial Arts. One of the most positive teaching schools I've ever seen. Master Brown's teaching technique is above and beyond. The respect and postivity he teaches shows thru his students from children to adults.
I am very thankful that I found this Martial Arts School. Trust me, I did my homework to find a school that would fit the needs of my son. Ancient Ways is definitely the right choice!

Ancient ways is a very enjoyable and fun place. You have fun as you learn. Now don't get me wrong class can be tough and exhausting at times. However, when you leave you feel energized, refreshed, and feel like a new person. Not only do you gain new skills but you also gain a family. Everyone there is very nice and supportive. For instance, I told Master Brown that I may not be able to sign up for another year since we're planning on purchasing a house. This is his response "Keep me in the loop and if you guys need help, I have an army of people happy to help you move, paint and whatever needs doing" Awesome place 100%

“They have a great time when they get to class.”

To Parents and Students:

I wanted to take a minute to write to you concerning a very important issue that you may have to confront during your time training in the martial arts.

There will possibly come a time in martial arts training that you or your child will want to quit. This is actually an important time for the student. This moment is in fact a window of opportunity. This may sound confusing and you may ask why? The reason is that this is a time for them to face adversity and challenge, and to help them overcome it.

Most usually, children don’t quit, parents do. There are several reasons why this occurs. Maybe as a parent you feel you don’t want to make your child do something they don’t want to do, or maybe it was hard getting them to classes weekly and now on top of that struggle they fight you to go to class. Parents today carry a heavy load, it’s not easy. There can be many conscious and subconscious reasons we support our children to quit. But I can tell you that at Ancient Ways Martial Arts Academy , our philosophy is to create a passion for perseverance, to train with an unshakable spirit, and to fight the will to give up. And we do this together, supporting each other as a team.

The most important value we want our students to learn at Ancient Ways Martial Arts Academy is Perseverance. Perseverance is the most powerful trait they must have in order to succeed in life, this is equally important for adult students. Through perseverance, we don’t have to be labeled as ‘Smart’, ‘Great Grades’, ‘Strong’, ‘Special’, ‘Talented’, ‘Athletic’. We have to teach our children, our students, that empowerment comes from their heart, through perseverance! We have to teach our children and ourselves that as long as we persevere we can accomplish anything in life. But, how do we teach that if we don’t teach them how to overcome adversity?

When that feeling of quitting, or ‘taking a break’ happens, there are two things you can do: quit or overcome the challenges being faced. By helping our students to overcome adversity they will become more confident and empowered. This is the main reason for training in the martial arts and was most likely why you choose this endeavor.

We should never force a child or adult to do something they no longer enjoy. However, often it’s because of something else happening within the child or adult student that has affected their confidence. By confronting these challenges and overcoming them, we will make a powerful impact on the future of our students by teaching them ‘Not To Give Up’. Our goal at Ancient Ways Martial Arts Academy is to work toward the growth and development of mind, body, and spirit through perseverance.

If you ever need to discuss any issues please know that I am always available.

To the success of you and your children,

Renshi Boon Brown
