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.

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 just love it here:) There is nothing to complain about!
Thank you Master Greer and Michael

Your child’s future is waiting. Will they be ready?

The first time I rode a bike I fell hard on the asphalt street and didn’t want to do it again. 

Each one of us has a story they remember from their childhood that now makes us laugh now but at the time seemed like the end of the world.  We got really scared and immediately shut down and said we didn’t want to do it again. What if our parents gave up too and never pushed us to keep trying. Or better yet, what if they allowed us to quit anything & everything  that got boring , not fun or too hard. I would have quit school at probably ten-eleven years old. 

  This is why now many years later I am so grateful for all the times my parents pushed me in the right direction. Habit of giving up is the worst one to have. 

It creates a lack of confidence that leads to many other issues with self esteem and more. 

I am so grateful for my mother that day who said “no“ , put a bandage on my knee, wiped my tears and convinced me to try again. The second time around was better and I wanted more.

That’s how life goes. We are not always the best at what we do especially when first getting started but we sure can be. We can with practice and dedication and that old saying “Hard work beats talent when talent doesn’t work hard,” as quoted by Tim Notke is 100%  correct. 

Over many years working with children we noticed there is  one thing all of them have in common. 

They crave structure, recognition and discipline more than some realize. 

Both create good habits and make them recreate the good behaviors. 

It’s fairly simple, you just have to be aware of what habits you want them to obtain in life, what will be beneficial in their adult life. 

What will help in the long run?

Will it be a shiny trophy or great communication skills ?

Will it be filling the time just to be active or having confidence and a “Yes I can”  attitude?

Now don’t misunderstand, all activities are great  but some things in life are just better and it’s time we as adults recognized that. It’s time to start giving our children tools that will contribute to their future success. Tools that will stay with them throughout their teenage years and young adulthood. Tools and skills that actually matter. 

Choose wisely,  their future is waiting  …. 

& Yes it’s your responsibility. You’re the parent . 

To your child’s success
