The Philosophy of High Sierra Martial Arts

High Sierra Martial Arts will strive to give you the best martial arts experience that we possibly can. We will guide you to reach your highest potential and reach goals you never thought you could achieve.

One of Martial Arts greatest rewards is getting to know yourself internally and externally. When faced with difficult situations, you can learn to stay calm and make the best choices in that moment. Martial arts training will help children and adults learn to deal with challenges and adversity. Through repetition and practice we become aware of our strengths and weaknesses; we continue to build foundations for a stronger body and mind. Martial Arts shapes our values and beliefs, it clears the mind so we can focus on the good things in life.

We believe in fun and laughter!

We believe that if there was no fun in what we teach, it would get boring quickly. Along with hard work, focus and concentration, we need to play! Let’s get away from the stressors of our daily life; having fun is beneficial tool in retaining and remembering techniques. Our goal during the classes is to obtain a balance between play and concentration.
