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.
