Classes for all Ages

Each class is filled with exciting, high-energy drills that are carefully designed to develop important life skills. Classes start simple and gradually become more challenging based on each individual’s pace and readiness for new material. All lessons are based on positive recognition, reward and reinforcement for effort, skill, manners, sportsmanship and respectful treatment of others. Self-confidence and Self Esteem are built in a gradual step-by-step fashion. Martial Arts training builds a strong foundation that can easily be applied in academics, sports, arts and social settings outside of Ruffing Martial Arts.
