This place is GREAT!! The kids martial arts program AND the adult kick-boxing classes are awesome. I think what really sets this place apart though aside from the great classes are the owners and instructors. They really care about their students and are dedicated to making both kids and adults stronger, more confident and better people. Highly recommend checking this place out.

We've been going to US Elite for over 4 years. My one son has earned his black belt and my other his red. We enjoy the discipline of the classes, the focus and confidence it gives our kids. The staff is great, always willing to discuss how they're doing. The atmosphere is very friendly. My boys have really enjoyed the extras as well...Skills and Stripes classes, mini camps over spring break and Christmas break. They love Parents Night Out (and so do we!). Would definitely recommend.

My son started with US Elite about a year ago. We’ve been very happy there. The instructors are great and keep the kids engaged and motivated. They also teach valuable life skills that translate at home and at school, with the goal being to shape future leaders. Belt testing keeps my son motivated with short-term goals that are achievable. His focus and confidence have improved since he started, and I like the emphasis on both physical and mental toughness. It’s clear Master Greer and the staff has a vested interest in seeing students succeed in and outside of class.

Great atmosphere, good people. Kids are our future and they need structure in their life. The US Elite Martial Arts professionals really help develop kids! Greco will thank me for giving him a chance to be part of US Martial!

Not just a 'get fit' school.
Stays by strong core values that everyone should have (respect, courtesy, modesty..)

Each workout is worth the money and the staff is very supportive and inspiring. Other places don't give as much per workout...

We love US Elite Martial Arts! Both of my sons attend classes twice per week. My older son has been enrolled for three years and still loves going every week. My husband recently joined as well. It is nice that there are all-belt classes so they can attend as a family.
All of the staff are professional, friendly, and passionate about what they do. They strive to have a high-quality gym that works for everyone.

I never thought that I will like kickboxing! I started eight months ago , at this great place ,and I love it since my first class. It's not easy ,but it's definitely worth it! I am here four times a week and I lose weight and tone my body, and it's perfect stress relief too. Great trainers ,nice people, I made new friends. I just love it here:) There is nothing to complain about!
Thank you Master Greer and Michael

GOALS & OBSTACLES

 

At U.S. Elite Martial Arts we learn how we should always set our goals high in order to achieve more.  There are differences between goals and wishes! Goals are written down, there is a plan to achieve them, and they have a due date.  Write down your goals on a piece of paper and review your goals regularly, and this alone will turn your wishes into strong goals.

  The majority of people do set goals but unfortunately not too many people achieve their goals, do you know why?  To achieve any worthwhile goal, you must first be aware of the challenges that you would encounter while reaching them.  I call these challenges, obstacles.  Whether we want it or not, obstacles are part of our daily life, without them maybe life wouldn’t be exciting.

  You have two choices!  1. Deal with them in a positive way and look at them as your new challenges, or 2. Become negative and think of them as problems, making them a bigger challenge than you think they are. 

  The difference between a successful and an unsuccessful person is not that the successful person is luckier, or that they are smarter, NO! The difference is how they deal with their challenges and how they achieve their goals by learning to overcome obstacles. Remember “Winners never quit, and quitters never Win

  Setting out to be a Martial Arts Black Belt is not without its challenges either, you must be aware and ready to deal with them in a positive way. Challenges like being consistent for classes when we’d rather be lazy or just play, losing motivation, reaching a plateau and not seeing yourself progressing, injury, etc.  These are all challenges that are made to be beaten.

  Goals are not usually at your reach; they are ahead of us – at the end of the road.  How can we become an achiever if we do not first learn how to overcome our challenges?

  “Our ability to handle life’s challenges is a measure of our strength of character”.-Les Brown

 Please remember that if your child has any challenges that need to be overcome, let us know, we will be glad to help. 

Best Regards,

Master Virgil Greer III
