Practicing martial arts encourages self-discipline, increases self-esteem, instills respect, improves listening skills, boosts socialization skills and develops the concept of teamwork. Asphalt Green offers martial arts programs for children and adults. Our classes use methods and techniques from various martial arts styles, including karate, boxing, taekwondo, jiu-jitsu and Muay Thai.

Our dedicated martial arts studio is equipped with the most contemporary training equipment (pads, bags and mats) in the martial arts industry.

We welcome and encourage kids on the autism spectrum to participate in our martial arts classes. Practicing martial arts improves motor skills, coordination, communication, and self-esteem.
