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 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!

Organization…we all want it, we all need it but how do we achieve it? According to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary, the definition is “the act or process of organizing or of being organized.” Some of us are definitely better at this than others! Getting kids organized is especially challenging but it is the first step to helping them be successful in school and life. Parents can teach their kids to be organized but a lot of parents struggle with this task because their children are too young to understand how important it is to have a routine or why doing things a certain way is best for them.
Organizing your child’s day starts with a plan. Brainstorm when you want your child to do certain tasks and what those tasks should be. For example, if you want your child to do their homework before they play, make sure they have all the supplies they need and that they know where the homework is located before they start playing. They should learn how to manage their time, organize their room and keep track of tasks. Sounds pretty easy, right?
Although parents strive to effectively teach their kids the skills to be organized, it takes a village! Being able to have others teach organizational concepts outside the home is just as important. From school to a discipline like martial arts, children are able learn from others how and why organization in life is important, reinforcing what they are learning at home.
Martial arts training helps kids develop an appreciation for organization starting with the history of martial arts. There are many different styles and systems organized into arts styles. One way is by the country of origin, like China’s Tai Chi, Japan’s Karate or Korea’s Taekwondo. Another way is by the formality of the art – from highly formalized to less formalized. The most popular method of organizing martial arts is by “style” according to how they were developed or what their main focus is, such as self-defense.
As soon as a student enters Championship Martial Arts to train, they know they are going to have a great class but there are tasks they need to do before they even walk onto the mat. That includes putting shoes in a certain area, setting down their equipment in a way it will be easily accessible for class, grabbing their attendance card, and taking a knee along the edge of the mat until a Sensei greets them individually and requests their attendance card. If they miss any of those things, they are asked to complete them before they can continue with class.
On the mat, sometimes children have a shorter attention span, so the curriculum is designed to be fun and energetic, keeping them engaged, challenged and focused. Flow of the class is key and shows students how they need to be organized when doing their forms – taking their time and not skipping ahead – or using weapons in an organized way that equates to control and mastery of the weapon.
When it comes to a personal martial arts goal, the ability for a student to organize their thoughts to achieve it can make all the difference. The goal can be something as simple as “I want to get a black belt in ____” or it can be more complex, such as “I want to compete in the Olympics.” In order to achieve the goal, it is important to break down and organize what needs to be done and why they are doing it. For example, if a student wants to compete in the Olympics, they will need a coach and some training on their own. If they want a black belt, they will need to train for several years and organize the pathway that will help them be prepared to attempt the test.
The first step to helping a child organize their thoughts surrounding a martial arts goal may look something like this:
What are your reasons for training in martial arts?
Do you want to improve your physical fitness?
Do you want to learn self-defense skills?
Are you looking for a way to build confidence and self-esteem?
Is this an opportunity for you and a friend or family member to spend time together?
What are the benefits you hope to get from training in martial arts?
When you are able to organize thoughts around goals, you begin to make those goals a reality. Martial arts teaches us that being organized is all about being ready, getting intentional and working to be your best self in all you do. So parents, if you are looking for some help with that whole organization thing, martial arts is a fantastic way to help teach that important life skill to your child!
