Frequently Asked Questions

  • 1

    Can I try Class before I sign up?

    Yes! Our No Obligation Trial really is "No Obligation". We want you to be sure that what we offer and what you need are congruent. If so, you are welcome to become a member after your trial is up.

    Do I need to be in shape to enroll for Adult classes?

    No! Although we definitely suggest maintaining an active lifestyle, if you haven't exercised in years, many of our classes will still be accessible. Once you're good at them and getting closer to your goals, you'll be able to increase the intensity and try harder classes. Before you know it, you'll be looking and feeling fantastic.

    How Often Should I Attend Class?

    As much as you'd like! We see the most success with at least 2 classes per week. Because we have membership options with unlimited class attendance, many members are here 3-5 or even 6 days a week. That's not necessary but the more you attend, the better your results!

    Do I have to sign up for a certain period of time?

    That entirely depends on your level of commitment, and how much you're enjoying classes. If you're a not sure yet that our classes are right for you, you're not required to stay for a period of time, but if you're loving it and have a goal of achieving Black Belt, we have programs that will get you there!


What Our Members Have To Say

We think our Programs ROCK! But what about actual Members?

A few years ago I joined Aspen Athletic Club to enroll my daughter with a personal trainer....Although she did dance twice a week, swim lessons etc...she still lacked core strength...good coordination, was being body shamed by other kids, a pediatrician that was concerned and a frustrated mom...We looked through the glass door at Champions Martial Arts ( and watched the kids....I remembered my own training when the bullies zeroed in on me and my daughter was no different...the best decision I ever made was taking Kelsie through that door.Her doctor cannot believe the body transformation and it can only be attributed from her training...she has poise and grace...confidence that I never thought she would have....and the ability to defend herself when 4 girls tried to intimidate and bully her in a gym locker room..she stood alone ready to take on whatever was about to happen....and was gracious enough to sit down a talk when the dust settled....I dont hear about bullies....or remarks about her weight...there is no more talk from her doctor about blood pressure or I a thankful parent....absolutely from the bottom of my heart

Wow! What has Champions not done-lol. Gunny loves karate and Renchi is so patient. The structure is very good for a Gunny and his attention has improved. I love the character development and focus on family that is built into the program-plus, I haven’t met any of the students yet who doesn’t want to go to Kids Night Out!

My 13 year old son started at Champions Martial Arts 8 years ago. Back then he was an impulsive, super shy little guy with hypersensitivity to loud noise along with multiple other things. Renshi Carlos Tearney was patient with him understanding that Jon loved karate but that he needed to learn at a slightly different pace as the other kids in the beginning. If you were to meet Jon today, he is a different kid. Carlos Tearney has created a program at Champions Martial Arts that helped my son break out of his shell, to find his voice and to give him the confidence to be himself when others kids his age are worrying too much about acting like their friends, to compete at tournaments in front of large crowds of people, and has given him the opportunity to help work with the children in the beginner classes. Thank you Carlos Tearney and Champions Martial Arts for being such a strong influence on molding my son into the awesome kid he is today. I will always strongly recommend this program to all children. Martial Arts is so awesome for kids and we are so happy to be part of the Champions Martial Arts family!
