The 5 Life-Changing Gifts of
Martial Arts. For Kids AND Adults.

Hello and welcome,

We’re so proud of you for investing in yourself and your personal protection! Our Springfield martial arts school is a place to get fit and learn self-defense... but the truth is it's so much more.

Did you know that our students experience serious, life-changing benefits beyond physical fitness when they train with us? Most of them are not prepared for the soul-filling, heartwarming effects of our classes and how they change a person's whole outlook on life.

We’ve had students struggling through depression, loneliness, and even divorce spring to life in our classes. We’ve seen children struggling with attention issues become focused and transform into model students.

The benefits of training are life altering and positive. Below we’d like to share a few more changes our students tell us they love experiencing too.

#1 Soaring Confidence

Challenge yourself, change your life! As you dive in and put your focus on learning all of the crazy cool punching drills, self-defense techniques, and getting involved in the cardio training you’ll realize you can reach and CRUSH your fitness goals. 

Wow, what a huge boost in confidence you’ll see! We see it on all of the new student's faces within just a couple of weeks. A lot of it comes from the positive class atmosphere and all the socialization that takes place here. 

You’ll beam with pride as your classmates and instructors cheer you on. You’ll lose count of all the high fives as you progress through training and continue to give your all in class. Both kids and adults feel this and it spills over into other parts of their life. Kids step up to the plate and become leaders in their classrooms. And adults claim they take on challenges at work with more confidence too! 

#2 Full on Focus

Martial Arts is incredibly fun! You’ll learn all sorts of new skills and techniques like striking drills, defensive moves, and even super-secret functional cardio drills. But...when you learn a new skill, you have to stay fully focused on the instructor, what they’re telling you and then do what you just learned.

The cool thing is that this intense concentration naturally pours into other areas of your life when you develop this laser like focus. It’s one of the most amazing perks of martial arts. Some people call it getting in the zone, unlocking your untapped potential, or peak performance.

Call it whatever you want, but one thing is true - you’ll learn how to focus your mind and perform tasks you once thought were impossible.

#3 Your Best Fitness Ever

No matter what your starting fitness level is, each one of our students improves from where they were when they took their first class. From total beginner to elite athletes. We strive to make sure each class is loaded with challenging and fun exercises that work your entire body.

You’ll be so focused on performing the techniques that some of the world’s top performing martial artists do, and having so much FUN, that before you know it, the class is over, and you not only learned powerful martial arts...

... but you got a great workout, too! Being physically fit BOOSTS energy and mental clarity. It REDUCES stress and anxiety… and so much more.

#4 Feeling Like You Belong Here

Many martial artists claim they always felt like an “outsider” before they found Martial Arts. Some of our students just never got into organized sports in school or felt that social clubs weren’t for them.

But the same students that tell us how they “never fit in” or weren’t popular seem to come alive in class! We provide a safe, non-judgmental environment where we all want each other to succeed. We don’t have bullies or students trying to one up each other.

Our members and instructors are all about support and friendship. Kids and adults easily make a lot of friends here and, as a result, our community thrives.

We provide the kind of environment that fosters friendship, encouragement, and motivation. The sense of fulfillment after every class is more than you can imagine.

#5 Guaranteed FUN!

You’ll have an absolute blast in class! Sure, things will be tough and training can get intense sometimes. But we like to break up that intensity with lots of laughs, encouragement, and light-hearted humor. 

Laughing, smiles and fist bumps are part of every class!

You can call our Springfield kids martial arts classes "family classes" because the parents of our students love these classes as much as their kids. And why not when the end-result is discipline and great sense of respect for kids of all ages! We focus on a well-rounded student; well behaved everywhere and a good performer in school.

Kids love our martial arts classes because we blend fun activities and games, and still dedicate pure focus time to learn new techniques while perfecting the old ones.

Both men and women in our community come to these adult martial arts classes for lots of reasons. Some have encountered dangerous situations where they felt hopeless. They wanted to gain the skills and techniques required for safety and protection. Most of all, they wanted to no longer feel helpless. Others want fitness.

Martial arts is a great workout - training you to use your body in new ways, boosting lean muscle development, accelerating fat loss, improved stamina, all while improving balance and coordination. With a focus on discipline, self-respect, and profound inner-growth you'll have all of the building blocks for an amazing self-defense practice and a happy, fit life.

Head Instructor

Growing up Mr. Lane was always fascinated with the martial arts from watching old reruns of the Green Hornet with Bruce Lee to Kung Fu with David Carradine.

He sought out different martial arts instructors throughout his younger years, training in everything from Karate, Kung Fu, Tae Kwon Do, and more. “Whoever started a school in my hometown or nearby town, it didn’t matter I was there.”

It wasn’t until he got to college where his dreams would start to come to fruition. He started training in Okinawan Goju-Ryu where he earned his first black belt.

But it wasn’t until 1991 when driving by a karate school, he saw The Perfect Weapon poster in a window, stopped, went in, and signed up - never looking back at another art.

Mr. Lane has spent a number of years in Kenpo, but hadn’t found a home until meeting Mr. Speakman in 2007 and later signing a franchise agreement in 2012. Now that Mr. Lane has found a home, he is fully devoted to Kenpo 5.0 and its future in the martial arts world.
