Our Story / Instructors


Zanshin is a Japanese term that loosely translates to "remaining spirit". In the martial arts specifically it refers to a particular state of heightened awareness before, during, and even after a conflict. In modern times we might say "prepare, execute, follow through". 

Our goal is change lives through the martial arts. We know that the fighting skills are pretty cool, but it is the mindset that truly changes a person into something special. We teach others that mindset and how to apply it to so much more than kicks and punches.
