  • Kickboxing can improve your power AND agility!

    Kickboxing can improve your power AND agility!

    To get better balance, power and agility, kickboxing is king among workouts. Experts who have studied the sport say nearly everyone—even older people who might shy away from such things—can benefit from throwing a punch. Unlike most other types of exercise, kickboxing emphasizes powerful movements. Power is different from strength, and for older adults, it’s an even better predictor of mobility and their risk for falls, says Kurt Jackson, an associate professor of neurology and rehab science at the University of Dayton in Ohio. “Pure strength is what a weightlifter uses, but producing power is about both force and speed,” he says. Kickboxing training tends ....

  • About Being One of the Biggest and One of the Greatest!

    About Being One of the Biggest and One of the Greatest!

    Yes, Warrior Martial Arts Academy has one of the biggest Competition Teams in the DFW area. And yes, we win lots of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu tournaments. But friends, remember that we started small. Warrior Martial Arts Academies launched in 2013 and we grew our Competition Team to the scale it is today. Just a bit of history: our team started about as small as you can get. Our first Competition Team had two kids that we took to Oklahoma for our first tournament (see photo of Julian and Karson). We just went to fight. No team rash guards. No patches. Just these kids with heart and drive and fearless determination. On that day, EVERY team was bigger than ours, but it didn’t stop us. We ....

    Great Turnout for Warrior In-House Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Tournament!!

    We recently had our in-house Brazilian Jiu Jitsu tournament at our Warrior Martial Arts Academy West Frisco location. We hold this event for all of our Academies across the Dallas / Fort Worth metroplex each year. The goal is to give some students that are not “formally” on our Competition Team a chance to test their BJJ skills against students from other locations. We run the event for ages 3 – 14. We organize the event by weight, age, size and ability. It is a submission-only event, with double elimination. A big “thank you” to all the instructors and parents that helped out and made this event successful! It was a great turnout this spring, and we look ....

    Yoga and Warrior Martial Arts classes part of new kind of PE curriculum for kids in Frisco ISD

    (Reprinted from Dallas Morning News) FRISCO — Soft piano music and dim lights set the mood in the kindergarten classroom. Kristina Cappe, a health and wellness coach at Frisco ISD’s Pink Elementary School, stands in front of 22 children, each sitting on their own pink mat. “Is everyone ready for yoga?” she asks. “We’re going to take our fingers and put them on our belly and we’re going to imagine our belly is a balloon.” Cappe leads the children in a few deep breaths, then guides them through some basic stretches. She shows the kindergarteners all the classic poses: mountain, warrior, downward dog, tree pose. When she has the kids arch ....

  • WOMEN – Martial arts is the best workout you’re NOT doing!

    WOMEN – Martial arts is the best workout you’re NOT doing!

    From Shape Magazine: Q: What are the benefits of boxing workouts or mixed martial arts training for women? A: I must give full disclosure: I’m a huge fan of mixed martial arts (MMA). The techniques include striking (kicks, knees, and punches) and grappling (holds, sweeps, and throws). I incorporate boxing and Jiu-Jitsu into my own weekly training plan. I also work with MMA fighters on a regular basis. That being said, I think that every woman, regardless of age or athletic ability, can benefit tremendously from incorporating some boxing and/or martial arts into her training program. Whether you want to improve overall health and fitness, lose weight (fat), or simply ....

    We had a GREAT turnout for our inter-Academy Sparring Session on Saturday. We had representation from all of the locations. This is some of the best kids kickboxing in the DFW area on display.

These classes are part of our proprietary Mixed Martial Arts class curriculum. Self defense or bully situations for kids usually start standing up, and usually end up on the ground. This is why Warrior Martial Arts Academy ....
