Yet at the same time, our introduction to martial arts program for beginning adults and teens completely breaks down the basics and allows beginners the space and time that they need to work their way at their own pace into the rigors and joy of martial arts training.  If Martial Arts are something that you've always loved, but you've hesitated to get involved, now is the time to change what you have done and join us for our free trial program classes exclusively at Main Street Martial Arts.  We are here to support you in your quest for knowledge, strength, fitness, dignity, and grace.  And if you are looking for new training tools or the cutting edge in this world of ours, give us and try for a free class and we'll show you what we can do.


We cover best practices fundamental martial arts principles, physical fitness, sports-based conditioning, and the real-world philosophical connections of the martial arts to everyday life.  

We absolutely encourage students who have never tried martial arts to give us a try. We are the best martial arts school in the region for beginning students to give martial arts a try in a caring and supportive environment.  
You will be well-supported to learn the basic strategic techniques of self defense in a cooperative environment and have an equal opportunity to advance at your own pace.
