Life-changing classes in self-defense, fitness & weight loss, and a more focused, confident life.
Hi, my name is Korey Stites, head instructor of Personal Achievement Martial Arts. I wanted to take a second to tell you a bit about our school, and what you can expect when you walk through our doors for the first time.
But just to warn you – when you come, prepare to be hooked. People fall in love with our programs from day 1, and I’m sure you will too. Here’s a bit about why that happens…
Our expert martial arts staff is extremely, extremely, extremely dedicated to giving you the best possible experience you could ask for. They’re there for every question you need answered… every boost of motivation when challenges arise… and to instill in you the wisdom that’s been passed down through martial arts for thousands of years.
On the surface, our Wheat Ridge martial arts program might seem like learning how to defend yourself and your loved ones. In truth, martial arts is so much more. Through the effort, dedication, and practice you put into every class…
And last but not least, we know how to have fun! After all, too much work is simply off-putting. When an activity is all serious focus and hard work, it’s easy to burn out. Every class is filled with smiles and laughter. You’ll make friends, enjoy your time, and walk away happier than when you came.
Anyways, I hope to see you soon. Feel free to explore our site, and learn more about each of our Wheat Ridge martial arts programs. But don’t wait too long! Our classes are limited in size, and I’d hate to see you miss out.
