This place has become like a second home to me and I'm greatful to have a place so close to where I live that is as patient and informative as P3. The coaches are extremely friendly and P3 has helped to improve my Jiu-Jitsu and my fitness. I recommend this place to anyone looking to learn an amazing martial art or just improve their physical health.

Very nice group of people, they just wanna see you grow, and you will grow here. They're a Jiu Jitsu school primarily, but they do have a Judo class on Tuesdays at 8pm. You'll feel right at home here

Hands down best facility around! I signed our son up last year and made multiple phone calls and searched online to find the best school for our son. P3 is extremely clean, professional and you can tell they all are passionate about what they do. He now has so much love for BJJ and looks up to all the coaches. You guys are awesome! My husband and I have recently joined the adult classes and I highly recommend.

My son had his first trial class today and he loved it! The entire staff was super helpful in answering all our questions. Facility is clean and it is a very professional setting. I have a feeling our son will be signing up after the trial is over! The way the coaches interact with the children is very admirable and they definitely work to make learning fun for the kids!

P3 Martial Arts has become my kids 2nd home. My son who is 7.5 has been at P3 for about 1m5 yrs and my 5 year old daughter is in her 2nd month. Everything about P3 is so awesome and its super clean!

If I had to pick one thing that really makes P3 stand out from other martial arts schools it is the coaching staff! They are passionate about BJJ and teaching the kids. When my kids see their coaches on the mats training/practicing they get so excited! This school cares about what their students are doing on and off the mats. Truly amazing role models!

Thank you to P3 for encouraging my kids to better themselves everyday

This is our second year working with the P3 team and it won’t be our last. We came in and asked if they could set us up a self defense class geared specially around safety for women in role at our company. They worked with me to be sure to target any situations the team could encounter in life and in the workplace-helping them realize that’s it’s not all about your size! 100lbs or 300lbs, it is about knowing the techniques. I highly recommend this team as they are extremely knowledgeable and made everyone feel comfortable! Keep up the great work guys!

5 Health & Fitness Benefits of Martial Arts

If you are looking for a way to improve your health or get in better shape, you
may not need to hit the gym. Instead, you should head to our martial arts
school. Martial arts could be the fitness solution that you have been
searching for. Discover the benefits of martial arts for a better and healthy lifestyle.

1. Improve Your Cardiovascular Health

Perhaps the greatest benefit of martial arts is improved heart health.
Doctors generally recommend between 20 and 30 minutes of cardiovascular
exercise 3 to 5 days per week.

Martial arts will get you up off the couch. Whether are practicing at home or
attending a martial arts class, you can easily hit at least 20-minutes of
cardio.

This gets your blood pumping and puts stress on your heart, allowing you to
increase your heart health. With improved heart health also comes a lower risk
of heart disease and stroke.

2. A Full Body Workout for Weight Loss and Fitness

Martial arts can also provide a complete full-body workout, helping with
weight loss and overall fitness. You get a high-aerobic workout that targets
quite a few different muscle groups.

Each martial arts session can help you burn additional calories, while also
increasing your endurance. In fact, a typical hour-long session of martial
arts can burn about 500 calories. For those trying to lose weight, this could be
all that you need to finally blast the fat in trouble areas, such as your
abdominal region.

3. Improve Your Flexibility and Balance

By practicing men’s martial arts, you should be able to begin improving your
flexibility and balance. You gain a better sense of balance, becoming more in
tune with your body.

The various poses and moves that you will learn provide the advantage of
increasing your flexibility, keeping you limber.

In a way, this is similar to the benefits provided by yoga. You are extending your arms and legs, stretching,
and performing aerobic moves that will help with your flexibility.

4. Increase Your Self Esteem with Martial Arts

As a final benefit to martial arts, you can increase your self-esteem. This
is achieved in multiple ways.

By getting in better shape, you will feel better about your body. By learning
self-defense techniques, you will have more confidence. This combination will
have a tremendous impact on your self-esteem.

5. Gain Improved Focus and Concentration

Martial arts is not just about self-defense. You are also learning how to
be still and in tune with your body. This teaches focus and concentration.

You need to be able to observe your opponent and focus on how you can use
their movement to your advantage. These are skills that carry through to
everyday life, helping you with concentration.

These same benefits that lead to improved focus and concentration can also
increase your mental clarity and leave you in a calm, relaxed mood.
Studies show that a martial arts session can release endorphins that
make you happy and content. This lasts for several hours after your workout is
complete.

Start Practicing Martial Arts Today!

Martial arts can definitely help with your health and fitness. You can get
a full-body workout that helps increase your endurance, flexibility, focus, and
self-esteem. You can also burn some calories, which can help you drop a few
pounds while improving your overall fitness and cardiovascular health.

This includes shedding light on cancer and mental health
issues. By adding a new physical activity to your regular routine, you can focus
on your own health and fitness.
