We love being a part of this Championship family. It's a safe and comfortable place for people to be who they really are and learn to be even better! You can feel the caring and warmth every time you walk in the door. As a family that is challenging for this business to cater to and accommodate, I can say we have never felt abandoned even when things get really rough. We've gotten very personalized "training" as we battle through life's trials. The Hidde family has always felt the product is valuable and worth every penny but great customer service in the form of going the extra mile to make things work for everyone, no matter how challenging is what I believe has made this family grow and succeed and grow some more. The experience has been and continues to be priceless=)

My son has gone since last summer but I just had my first class last night (adult class) and LOVED it! I left feeling more confident, and energized!

The instructors are great. They explains the techniques very thoroughly and if you still are having problems, they will walk you through it. My kids and I take classes. They are thoughtful and if you are having problems outside of the classroom, they listen as well. They treat you like family, and you are a family. We love it here, and I am grateful for them.

I love the variety of martial arts offered in this school. With all of the options to choose from, my son is never bored & loves coming to class even 6 years later. It has become his second home & family. #1 school in the valley & the instructors are top notch.

I love this place! Very very warm welcome from the start and still holding strong. The instructors pay attention to the group as a whole and as individual. Advancements and lessons are understandable. This is the perfect place to open your mind, spirit, and everything else even if your shy :)

My daughter has been going for 6mos now and we love what they are teaching the students! Fitness, respect, courage, and self confidence are just a few of the qualities they are instilling in our child. She even answers my questions with a "sir"... As a father, Im loving this!

First of all I want to say thank you to all of my teachers for supporting me. At first I was scared to start because my English isn't perfect but everyone is so welcoming and that really means alot. I love the positive energy every time I come into class. I learn something new every class and can't wait to see what the future holds. I highly recommend everyone to join this school and when you think you can't... they show you that you can. Gracias sir!:)

Champions Martial Arts is a phenomenal place to learn. My daughter has absolutely fallen in love with it in the short time she has been attending. The instructors do an amazing job with the children (and adults). Everyone has fun while learning. I always feel welcome when I go there. We were new to the area and they were very accommodating and helpful. I would reccommend them for sure!

Our life, since we have joined this family, has not only improved, but has brought us to a place I never thought was possible! Being a single mom to jackson, and not having a male influence for him had been hard and it was slowly starting to show. His self confidance was at an all time low, he was having a lot of problems at school and home. My parents and I were at a loss as to how to help him realize how amazing he is. Grandma found champion's martial arts and we can not say enough extraordinary words to describe what all the instructors have ment to is. This is not just a class I how to and leave, your whole life changes and u feel what real confidence is and how to live right in society! Jackson is an amazing boy who is learning tools to "develope himself for success" his self esteem has grown and because the instructors are so amazing at treating everyone as individuals Jackson is handling his fear of abandonment, and now has the concentration to excell in school and at anything he does in life! Thank you is just not enough...Thank you martial arts family, you all are in our hearts and spirit everyday!

Is martial arts too violent for kids?

Hello!

Every so often, we get a parent that is hesitant to sign their kids up for martial arts because they’re worried it is too violent. Unfortunately, movies and television have a bad habit of sometimes portraying martial arts as an aggressive practice.

A great instructor will teach kids the value of integrity and respect when it comes to martial arts. In fact, several reputable studies, like one done by the Journal of Sports Science and Medicine in 2010 found that kids who participated in martial arts for a longer period of time actually showed lower levels of aggressiveness overall.

Kids can get so much out of learning martial arts, from the discipline needed to advance, to the confidence that comes with learning self-defence and progressing through the various belts.

We offer programs for children starting at age 4 all the way through adulthood. Want to learn more about our classes?  Give us a call at 920-882-6470 in Appleton or 920-482-2936 in Darboy.

Hope to see you soon!
