Why Are We Right for You?  3 Reasons...

1)  Credibility

Grandmaster Crandall and his staff have been teaching martial arts as part of the Central New York community for more than 40 years.  As traditional martial artists, we take pride in past and we have deep roots right here in New Hartford.  We have helped thousands of children, women, and men improved their fitness, self-confidence, and ability to defend themselves.  We can do the same for you.

2) Qualified Instructors

We are proud of our staff.  These adult men and women started as students right here in our school.  Now as black belts, they have chosen to teach others.  But just because you can do something doesn't mean you're a good teacher.  That's why all of our instructors go through a rigorous, ongoing training program to be certified to teach.   As a retired Superintendent of Schools, Grandmaster Crandall has created an educational process and structure that gets results.  His top instructor, Master Stalloch, is a permanently certified teacher in New York State.  With these unique educational backgrounds, our school offers classes that are fun and exciting but structured for learning.

3) It's About Time

Time is our most precious resource.  Whether you've thought about getting in shape, improving balance, or learning self-defense, now's the time.  If you have thought about enrolling your child or grandchild, the time is now.  Our 6400 foot, permanent location is designed to offer multiple classes for all ages 6 days a week.  We have the knowledge, teaching staff, and experience to help you.  The only thing missing is you!  Let us help today.
