We have been part of the CMA family for 9 months now. Both of my boys are enrolled, and one of them is autistic. I was really worried about how he would do, because he has never done any kind of sport before. But thankfully all the staff at CMA have been so kind and understanding and helpful to both of my boys and their needs and goals. I love the positive focus of every class, the life skills being taught along side self defense, and the encouragement they give each student.
This gym is absolutely amazing! My son really struggled to find a sport that he enjoyed and this was a perfect fit. These instructors are so good with the kids. They truly care about their success in life, not just in karate. My son is so much more confident and driven than he was before he started. I don’t know what we would do without championship martial arts!!
After 3 years at CMA, my 14 year old son still enjoys going to his karate lessons--4 times a week! The positive social interaction has built his confidence and the discipline required in learning this sport is spot-on for his teenage years. The leaders are enthusiastic and personally want to see each child (and adults) reach their fullest potential from beginners to advanced on varying degrees of difficulty. They are involved in community fundraisers and help their students know the valve of giving back. They also have several special events through the year. They do so much more than "teach" martial arts. I'm very impressed with their organization.
CMA has an amazing staff who truly care and know each student by name. They teach not just the karate skills but life lessons as well. Always positive, energetic, and inviting. The facility is always well kept, clean, and sanitized. They are very organized and prompt. The best karate studio around. So many opportunities for growth and learning. Definitely 5 stars.
We started with CMA 3 years ago. My two kids have had such an amazing experience. Not only are they teaching martial arts and self defense but life lessons that truly leave an impact.
They care about the students as individuals and want to see them succeed. They teach them to navigate life trials and how to improve in areas they struggle in.
Just like most extracurricular activities it is an investment. It's an investment in your child's self esteem, self discipline and future. I honestly can't put a price on that. I recommend CMA to everyone we know. It's been the best choice we've made for our kids.
Championship Martial Arts is amazing. We were looking for something active that would help our son build confidence. We tried another karate place and it wasn’t great, but CMA is amazing. Great Senseis, positive environment. I can’t say enough good things about CMA. My son has grown so much there in many ways. CMA can take all my money!!! They are the best.
I got my son started with CMA in January 2021 on a trial pass and after the first lesson he was hooked. He had wanted to do karate for a long time and so we decided to give CMA a try. Their karate program is amazing and has done so much for my son. I have seen him excel in the program in a short amount of time and love every minute of it. It has helped him in school to strive for goals and confidence. I love everything CMA stands for with their values, goals, and leadership they give in every class.... The instructors are the best! Sensei Tabor is a phenomenal instructor, and a great mentor for every kid to look up too. I’m impressed with his lesson plans and the way he instructs his classes, he really is the best in the business .. Sensei Nate, McKay, and Jennifer all of them are beyond talented. They are professional, they love what they do and they have the best interest of every kid in mind.. The Kaysville and Syracuse location are fantastic facilities and classes are organized, on time and always fun while instilling the fundamentals of karate... I can’t say enough good things about CMA and I’m grateful everyday we did that trial pass and love the journey my son is on with CMA! This is the place if you want your son or daughter to learn karate, hands down they are the best.
The instruction is easy for my 5 year old to comprehend. The teaching strategies support my daughter to actually learn; she is not just being told what to do. She is given multiple example as well as non-examples. Aside from the instruction, she has fun. She laughs and smiles while learning and when we leave she says "I love karate". We highly recommend Championship Martial Arts!

We have had an amazing experience here! My son is learning and improving at his own pace, and is given frequent leadership opportunities. I love how the constant rotations allows for everyone to have the chance to hone leadership skills! The instructors are professional, concerned, and reinforce the discipline and respect we teach at home. I’m also impressed at how the staff knows each student’s name! They make a serious effort to personalize each student’s experience as best they can. I highly recommend this dojo.
My 9 year old son has had a lot of issues with focus and following through directions( he has been diagnosed with adhd). We have also moved a lot which has been hard for him. And finding an outlet for him has been very important . Starting karate at CMA has helped him immensely. His confidence has grown so much and has helped with his ability to focus. It has really helped him physically and mentally! And the instructors are so kind and encouraging! They really care about the kids. We absolutely love it there!

I absolutely love the way the sensei Tabor teaches material. My son struggled with confidence and was extremely shy. We did a lot of research before selecting a good martial arts school. I am so glad we decided on this one, because they focus on so much more then teaching basics of karate. It’s personable. They want your child to succeed in school at home and karate. My son has gained so much self esteem in the six months we have been going. Extremely professional. Highly recommended. You won’t regret it.

This school is amazing! The owners and instructors are incredible! They care so much about their students. They do a weekly class for their leadership team in how to encourage, motivate, and work with those students who are shy, scared, or otherwise need extra help. The classes are high energy and a great workout. Whether you are new to martial arts or not, this school can help you reach your goals. With classes for preschoolers, kids, teens and adults, the entire family can participate.

We have been at Fighting Brothers Karate for almost three years. It started with my 9 year old son (now 12). We wanted him to find something to channel his energy since he didn't like sports. Since then, six of the seven of us started as well. We are waiting until the youngest turns three so she can start too. It has been a fantastic thing to do as a family and has brought us closer together. We love it. The staff is fantastic and we feel we are definitely getting our money's worth.

I can't say enough about Fighting Brothers Karate! My son has grown into a remarkable, responsible and dedicated young man! They are like family and have been instrumental in helping to raise my son!!

I got my son started in Karate because he had been bullied so badly in school that I had begun home schooling him. I wanted him to know how to defend himself and build up his self confidence and get some exercise. Fighting Brothers has meet all my expectations. The atmosphere at FBK was so awesome that I decided to start taking classes as well. The instructors are always positive and are awesome about giving the students positive feedback. They push you physically as well, so I feel that I always get a good workout!

Championship Martial Arts Kaysville Martial Arts & Fitness for All Ages!
Every year, the American Heart Association celebrates Heart Month to raise awareness about heart disease and heart health.
What you may not know is that martial arts are great for the heart. In fact, the cardiac benefits of martial arts give a whole new meaning to the idea of cardiovascular fitness.
With that in mind, here are some ways that taking martial arts classes can protect and strengthen your heart.
Martial Arts Raise the Heart Rate
The first way that martial arts can help the heart is by raising your heart rate when you work out. The heart is a muscle and it needs to be worked. When you take a martial arts class, your heart rate is elevated.
The benefit of raising the heart rate is that it oxygenates the blood, and helps promote calorie burning even after you’re done working out. People of all ages need to keep their hearts pumping, and martial arts is a great way to do it.
Martial Arts Lower Blood Pressure
Did you know that a high-intensity martial arts workout can help lower your blood pressure? It’s true. Hypertension, or high blood pressure, is a leading contributor to heart disease.
When you work out, your heart becomes stronger – and that means that it can pump blood more efficiently than it can without exercise. The less effort your heart has to expend on pumping blood, the lower your blood pressure is.
Martial Arts Lower Cholesterol
LDL cholesterol – the so-called “bad” cholesterol” – is a contributing factor in heart disease. Regular participation in martial arts helps you lose weight and that decreases the amount of LDL cholesterol in your blood.
There’s evidence that working out also shrinks the proteins that carry cholesterol through the bloodstream, making them less dangerous to the heart.
On a related note, regular vigorous exercise – such as the kind you get in a martial arts workout – helps to increase HDL or “good” cholesterol.
Martial Arts Reduces Stress
One thing that separates martial arts from many other forms of exercise is that it requires mental stillness combined with physical exertion.
Mental stillness contributes to mindfulness, a practice that can significantly decrease stress and anxiety in both children and adults.
Considering that there is a direct link between stress and heart health (stress contributes to high blood pressure and related issues), the fact that participating in martial arts can reduce stress is a huge benefit for the heart.
In addition to the benefits already mentioned, martial arts training also helps to improve discipline, build muscle coordination, and increase self-confidence.
This month, why not give your heart a boost by adding martial arts to your workout routine?
