Our Martial Arts classes are up and running for youth as well as for adults! Youth classes are currently once a week:

Fridays: 4-6yrs @ 5:30p

7-12yrs @ 7p

Saturdays: 13-17yrs@ 1p

They also get 1 self defense class a month with their martial arts package. As members increase, our class availability will move to 2 per week.

Adult classes are currently 3 times per week with 2 options.

Beginner Striking - This is a combination of Karate and Boxing

Beginner Grappling - This is a combination of Judo and Jiu Jitsu

Additional Group Fitness classes will be added in September-October such as kick boxing which we can split to offer Female online kick boxing classes as well as co-ed.

Some of our classes, like self-defense, are offered to the public and non-martial arts pack holders for a small fee

Our classes are taught by Jack Murphy. Jack is an Iuka native. He is a 5th degree black belt in Nisei Go-Ju-Ryu Karate/Ju Jitsu. He also is a Brazilian Ju Jitsu Blue Belt under Professor Eduardo Mori at Salt Lake City Utah. Jack has over 30 years of boxing/kickboxing experience. Jack was a professional MMA competitor for 5 years with the RFC in Tampa, FL. Jack has the talent and patience to train kids as young as 4 and the aptitude to train various forms of martial arts. He even hopes to offer Tai Chi, which is a great recommendation for our senior citizens. We, as well as Coach Murphy, are excited to offer this to our community and look forward to seeing everyone participate in the classes offered.
