Welcome to
1Up Martial Arts

To A Caring Parent

Hi, my name is Luke Elrod.

Many people walk through the doors of my school for the first time and think that martial arts is just about punching and kicking. This may surprise you, but there is so much more to it.

Our goal at 1Up Martial Arts is to use martial arts as a vehicle to inspire kids to be more confident and focused in their daily activities.

Below, I would like to share with you the most important benefits that children and parents get from our program. Then afterward, I will let our members do the talking and share with you exactly how our program transformed their child’s life.

The Transformation

After Just A Few Weeks Of MArtial Arts, This is What Happens...

Action-Packed Fitness and Exercise.

Action-packed games, activities, and exercises give kids a great workout from head to toe.

They get stronger, healthier and more fit within just a couple weeks. These fun exercises also help maintain a healthy weight!

The best part? The fitness is disguised as FUN! All your child will know is that they’re having a blast. But you and I know they’re also getting the exercise they need.

Self-Defense From Strangers, Bullies, and More.

Make no mistake about it! While our classes are tons of fun, we also cover the "serious" stuff too.

We teach kids about handling strangers... bullies... and more.

However, the first thing we teach is diplomacy. We give your child the tools they need to "talk it out" first. Violence is ALWAYS a last resort!

Powerful Character Development Breeds Discipline, Focus, and Respect.

For thousands of years, martial arts has been one of the best kept secrets for giving kids the skills they need for success in life.

Through inspiring stories and talks, as well as the process of learning the techniques, kids develop amazing traits, like:

Respect, discipline, focus, and goal setting.

I hope your child will never have to use their self-defense skills. But I guarantee these other skills will come in handy EVERY day for the rest of their life.

Fun, Fun, Fun!!!

While kids work hard and train hard in our classes...

They also smile and laugh a LOT, too!

After all, these are kids we’re dealing with here! Our classes are a great place for kids to socialize, make friends, get support, and have a blast.

Frequently Asked Questions

No way! In fact, martial arts makes kids calmer and more respectful than ever. Martial arts always has been about peace, and it always will be.
As a parent, I'm sure you've seen that kids can get injured doing just about anything. Martial arts is no different, however we take safety very seriously here. Yes, injuries do sometimes happen. But we do everything in our power to avoid them. We do special exercises and stretches to make your child's body limber and flexible.
Absolutely. Martial Arts teaches kids to be coordinated, flexible and strong. Kids who don't naturally have these qualities develop them. Kids who do have these qualities grow them even more.

This place is fantastic! The teachers, Mr. Carlos, Mr. Zach and Mr. Elliot (and formerly Mr. Max) are enthusiastic, engaging and patient. They are effective at conveying the important values that are critical for healthy development, even to 3 and 4 year old kids, while still making things fun. My son really enjoys his classes, and has shown great growth as a result. I also truly believe that he does better in VPK as a result of his time here, so it's a win-win. The teachers do a great job of making personal connections with students and parents alike, and it's obvious that they care. I drive past 3 other karate schools twice a week to come here, and can't say enough great things.

I have never left a review for any business before this. However, I truly feel justified in writing this one. I don’t know much about karate or its instruction, so this review will not be about those things. What has impressed me Is the attention paid to getting to know each of the children. Most schools like this are just churning kids through to make a dollar while paying little or no attention to there development. That is not the case here. The instructors know all the kids by name. They pull kids aside to give them inspirational coaching. They focus on teaching life lessons and skills such as focus, discipline, respect, etc. This is a kids class, so the instruction is by necessity rudimentary. The kids play games together, burn energy, and have a good time while also learning to take instruction. They have a student of the day system to reward kids for effort and focus. It’s fun to watch the kids try for the student of the day honors. I’m pretty sure they spread the “love” around fairly equally. It seems most kids have roughly the same number of awards. Either way, it works. The kids are so proud. On multiple occasions the instructors have sent congratulatory or inspirational videos to us for our son. He watches them over and over. It makes his week. In short, my son loves it. I love what they are teaching him. I love how they go the extra mile to impact him. Thanks, guys. You are doing a wonderful job.
