Young Adults (Ages 18-21)

Whether you've never done martial arts before or you've out-grown the "martial arts" you did as a kid, Budo is for you! We're not a kid/sport focused "karate school", nor are we a testosterone gym (although our style is more than effective enough to deal with such people). We teach high quality martial arts to people who can understand and appreciate quality and who want the best out of life. Young adulthood is the perfect time to start taking charge of your life!

Training in our art is great for your body, mind and spirit. It's challenging, but well worth the effort, leading to true understanding, self-confidence and control of your body, interactions with others and your life. Budo training is ideal for young men and women who want to develop truly effective, high quality skills in a mutual growth oriented environment, where everyone is respected for who they are, the growth they accomplish, and the abilities and understanding that they acquire.

In addition to the skills learned being very effective should you ever need to defend yourself, they will also improve your life in many other ways, both now and in the future. At Budo you'll feel like you belong. The training starts with individually paced lessons that focus on giving you the ability to control your body to a very high degree. This is a necessary pre-requisite to advanced martial arts, and it allows one's body to adapt to higher level training. If you have trained elsewhere as a child, you will develop a new appreciation of what martial arts can be and understand why true martial arts isn't for kids. It's not because of violence, but because children can't understand the challenges of life as an adult. If you haven't studied elsewhere, consider yourself fortunate to have started in our program. Whether you do it for personal growth, physical conditioning, a release, self-defense, to become a martial arts master or just because it's cool, this is the program for you!

We also understand that Young Adults can be very busy and low on funds. Therefore, our program allows Young Adults to also participate in our "Young Adult/Teen" Classes and Program. These classes are about preparing people for the challenges of being a young adult, so they are ideal for 18-21 year olds. There are Two Young Adult/Teen-Centered Classes each month that fit busy schedules (one Wednesday and/or one Sunday early evening - see Schedule) While teaching martial arts and practical self-defense, these classes focus on Young Adult issues - balancing schedules, responsibility, remembering things, handling pressures, being an individual and being part of a group, etc. The genders are taught separately for part the class (led by successful men and women respectively) to focus on challenges and issues young adults face, what young adults find interesting and need to know. In addition Young Adult students can attend any other classes that will fit there schedule, either in the full program or a special, less expensive (both in time commitment and money) "Teen/Young Adult Program" (see Programs).

Once you develop precision control your movements, your body and mind are ready to start our advanced martial arts training. This is challenging, but our initial training prepares you for it, and it's well worth the effort. Our style is extremely efficient, varied and for everyone. It incorporates both fast and powerful, and slow and controlled. It allows you full control over your body and the ability to use it in any situation necessary. Our training takes you there regardless of your condition, body structure or abilities coming in.
