Body, Mind & Spirit

BODY - NKS training helps students develop strength, flexibility and cardiovascular fitness. Pre-schoolers learn gross motor skills, and children and teenagers become physically active. NKS' exercise-with-a-purpose is an ideal way for adults to get and stay in shape as they acquire personal protection skills . In addition to martial arts classes conducted mornings, lunch time, evenings and weekends, our unique Cardio Combat® program is an exciting alternative to boring fitness routines.

MIND - NKS training challenges your mind. In every class, and at every belt level, you’ll discover new skills as you explore the history, culture and philosophy of martial arts.

SPIRIT - NKS training is moving meditation. Each session represents a stress-free sanctuary from the pressures of modern life, and self-reflection, goal setting and visualization practice lead to personal growth. To change the world, first change yourself.
