My son has been attending Monstro Demo School for over a year now, and I have been incredibly impressed with the results. Not only has he developed impressive skills in karate, but he has also learned the value of discipline, respect, and perseverance. The instructors are knowledgeable, patient, and caring, and they truly go above and beyond to help each student reach their full potential. I highly recommend this school to any parent looking for a safe and positive environment for their child to learn martial arts.

Monstro is exceptional training for all ages. We have been virtual since March and the instructors have been just as engaged and precise as they are with kids in class.

I am so grateful to have found Rising Sun Martial Arts for my children. Since they started attending the school, I have seen a significant improvement in their confidence, discipline, and overall well-being. The instructors are incredibly knowledgeable and engaging, and they make each class a positive and fun learning experience. They also place a strong emphasis on character development, teaching valuable life skills such as leadership, respect, and perseverance.

What I appreciate most about Monstro is their commitment to safety and inclusivity. They have implemented rigorous safety protocols to ensure the health and well-being of all students and staff during the pandemic, and they have also created a welcoming environment for students of all backgrounds and abilities. My children have made friends with students from different cultures and learned to appreciate diversity.

Got Questions? We Got Answers

My child isn't athletic. Can he/she still participate in martial arts?

Absolutely. Martial Arts teaches kids to be coordinated, flexible and strong. Kids who don't naturally have these qualities develop them. Kids who do have these qualities develop them even more.

Are these Martial Arts classes fun?

Yes! After all, these are children we're dealing with here. And kids love their fun. We do a variety of games and activities that have kids laughing and smiling. We work hard here - but we play just as hard.

Can Martial Arts cause injury?

Because we place such a huge focus on safety and injury prevention, we're proud to say that injuries are very few and far between with our program. In fact, because Martial Arts gets you in great shape, and makes you strong and flexible, people often see LESS injuries in their lives.

Do you have to be in good shape to take Martial Arts?

Not at all! In fact, many people use martial arts as a way to get in good shape. They come to us out of shape, and quickly become athletic and limber.

Is Martial Arts violent?

No! Because self-defense technique is taught in Martial Arts, it's often thought of as violent. However, the philosophies behind Martial Arts revolve around peace and harmony. The moves are more of a way to become connected with your body. We teach diplomacy and friendship. However, if a violent situation ever arises in your life, you'll have powerful tools to defend yourself and your loved ones.

What's a good age for a child to start Martial Arts?

Honestly, practically every age is a good age to start! We have young children, as well as teenagers. We also have specific programs for adults. So no matter what age - we've got you covered.
