LEADERS VS. FOLLOWERS
Our mission at Arrowhead Martial Arts Academy is “To
Empower Today's Youth to Become Tomorrow's Leaders.”
We do this by
using the physical aspect of the martial arts training
to incorporate life skills that will not only teach our
students self-defense, but will, more importantly,
prepare them for life's challenges. Through our unique
programs we start by developing within every student an
attitude of "Black Belt Excellence". This is a metaphor
for striving for the best you can be. In essence, we
become life coaches for our students as we guide them
through an exciting journey to earning a black belt.
MARTIAL ARTS--JUST ANOTHER ACTIVITY?
While baseball, basketball, dance and soccer are all
great activities, Arrowhead Martial Arts Academy’s
programs are a personal development journey that will
last for the rest of our student’s lives.
Our programs are designed to increase confidence and
self-esteem. Both which go far in preventing your child
from being bullied, raising their academic level and
producing well adjusted individuals. Our emphasis is on
Character Development as we mentor Black Belts of
Excellence for life by incorporating traditional martial
arts along with contemporary, dynamic teachings. Along
the journey to reaching black belt, important skills
such as: goal setting, respect, teamwork, cooperating,
excelling, perseverance and integrity are ingrained in
our students so that they will be prepared for all of
AWARD WINNING SCHOOL
Both Master Tippetts’ were inducted into the Universal
Martial Arts Hall of Fame for Instructors of the Year
for 2009, & received the Mark of Excellence Award 2008,
2009, 2010, 2011, 2012.
Just because you earn a black belt does not qualify you
to teach. This is why all our instructors are certified
through an intensive leadership training course and a
series of martial arts college courses. Once they pass
these courses they are put through a rigorous training
both on and off the mat. This is followed up with twice
weekly training so that our instructors stay up-to-date
with their teaching skills.
are required to keep up their training through 40 hours
of ongoing continued educational courses, training and
seminars. This is our commitment to our students—to
invest in our staff so that our students will receive
only the best and highest quality in their martial arts
NO ONE SITS ON THE BENCH AT ARROWHEAD MARTIAL ARTS
Martial Arts is not a team sport where if you are not
one of the top 10 “stars”, your playing time is
extremely limited. Our students are all individuals and
are not competing against anyone other than
“themselves”. Our students come in all shapes and sizes,
ages and coordination levels. We have students with
autism, asperger’s, attention deficit disorder (ADD),
attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), mild
downs syndrome and sensory integration dysfunction
disorder (SIDD), overweight, knee challenges, back
problems, etc. Each student is trained and motivated to
work at their best potential.
We invite you to join our family and begin your personal
journey to becoming a future "Black Belt of Excellence"
at Arrowhead Martial Arts Academy.
