Traverse City Martial Arts: How to find the right studio for you and your family

Traverse City martial arts offers great mind and body training for both child and adult students. Martial arts training touches on and encompasses so many different areas that it is a great fit for almost any Traverse City resident regardless of age. Martial arts can be started as early as age 18 months and many practice their chosen martial art into their 70's and even 80's.

Someone new to martial arts is often intimidated from what they may have seen in movies or on tv and are worried about getting injured practicing the moves. Just the opposite is true. In Traverse City at my studio - the Seung-ni Martial Arts Academy - new students quickly realize that they will not get hurt, will not be embarassed, will not look silly, will not look feel like the "new" person and feel awkward.

Traverse City martial arts choices include among others: Taekwondo, Brazilian Jiu-jitsu (bjj), mixed martial arts (mma), Karate, Judo, Kung fu, Ninjitsu, Kempo and Aikido. At the Seung-ni Martial Arts Academy we focus on Taekwondo, Brazilian Jiu-jitsu and Mixed Martial Arts. It does not matter which martial art a Traverse City resident picks -- all martial arts are great. You just want to look for the right fit for you and your family. Here is a list of the top 7 items to look for in selecting a martial arts academy in Traverse City:

  1. Clean - the martial arts facility should be very clean and professional in appearance.

  2. Affordable - the monthly tuition should be reasonable. One thing to make sure you are aware is that most martial art schools will charge you for belt and testing fees upwards of $40-$60. At the Seung-ni Martial Arts Studio we do not charge for belt and testing fees!
