Philosophy

Martial arts have a reputation for being spiritual in nature. At Sandpoint Martial Arts Center we want you to know where we stand right up front. We do not subscribe to the eastern mysticisms associated with some martial arts. We do not try to spiritualize a push-up or bow down to a statue before class. We will not sound a gong or refer to chi. In class we use strength and balance along with basic principles of physics and leverage, not chi. We work hard in class and encourage every one of our students to achieve their absolute best. We understand that life is not easy, and working hard is a golden skill that every person needs to grab onto. We stay up to date with what is practical, realistic and what works regarding self defense for children, teens and adults. We will do our best to keep classes exciting, challenging and educational. On the subject of spirituality, we are Christians. We will not push our faith on you, but we are glad to share it. If you have any questions, just ask.
