Martial arts are not just for kids
Testimonial 17 75x75 Home

After working my desk job for eighteen years, I managed to put on some extra pounds. A friend of mine suggested that I start taking martial arts instead of hitting the gym 6 days a week. I gave it a shot and a year and a half later I feel healthie...

A Message from Owners Chief Master Laura Kowkabany and
Sr. Master David Kowkabany

Kowkabany’s Family Martial Arts (KFMA) has a fairly simple philosophy in our martial arts school. The Kowkabanys believe that the job of martial arts instructors is to help every student to develop the specific gifts they have been given by God so that they can become their best, physically and mentally. Kowkabany’s Family Martial Arts helps their students to be successful, not just on the training floor, but also at home, in school and in the community.

Learn Valuable Life Skills

The physical training of taekwondo is the instrument martial arts uses to develop an individual. The life skills we teach include integrity, respect, goal-setting, courtesy, self-discipline, loyalty, self-control, and honor. Taekwondo is much more than a “sport,” it is an art, which evolves along with the student depending on where that student is in life. For this reason, many of our students come to us simply to develop these life skills.

The Family That Trains Together, Stays Together

Our martial arts family center has an open, fun and friendly environment, starting with students as young as four years old, and with adults training in their 70s. Many of the students in our academy train with family members, quite often in the same class. There are very few avenues available where parents and their children can workout together, and we find this quality time spent together is wonderful for building family unity.

Many of us want to accomplish great things. However, often we fail to reach our goals. This happens not due to lack of trying, but rather due to us not working smartly. We often have the ultimate goal in mind, but we do not pay attention to the steps involved in achieving that goal. Focusing […]

Martial Arts, Never Too Late To Learn!

As we get older we seem to lose the edge we used to have, be it in speed, focus and sometimes even memory. Seniors can be more active as compared to their juniors if health permits. In fact, many seniors have reported that the sole thing holding them back is physical discomfort. This is where martial arts […]
