KAIZEN Martial Arts

My Class Schedule is designed to make attendance easy and flexible for students and families.

I don’t believe in limiting ones desire to train as often as they desire. I also don’t believe in penalizing them, by making them pay more money each month for attending additional lessons each week. At Kaizen, I encourage my students to attend an minimum of two classes per week, however my youth students can attend as many as four, and my adults can attend as many as eight. All of my classes are separated by skill and age, and I place a restriction on how large a class grows, to guarantee personal attention.

Additionally, my schedule is designed to accommodate families and students, to allow them early or later class times, as well as provide enough flexibility in their weekly schedule, that they don’t have to give up other activities to attend martial arts training here at Kaizen. For families with kids in different classes, I do my best to keep their kids classes back to back, and families can relax in the lounge or lobby.

Class Schedule

This schedule is subject to change, based on the needs of my students and growth of the studio.

I offer classes every Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Sunday afternoons and evenings. I do close one Sunday a month to assist me with the additional work I do with Wisconsin Big Cat Rescue. Each night, I currently offer two class times to choose from, whether a student prefers an earlier class or a later class. Eventually as students progress to higher levels and others join, the schedule will be modified to accommodate growth and my students schedules.

I allow as much flexibility in this schedule as you desire. The more you train, the faster you’ll learn and stronger you’ll grow, so I encourage students to take advantage of as many classes each week as they can. This also helps for if/when I need to cancel classes due to holidays, sick days, or dangerous weather.

As a side note… I cancel classes if the schools in Reedsburg cancel school or have early release due to dangerous weather.

Students are welcome to come up to 15 minutes early for class to change, relax, or warm up for their class. Locker rooms are available for students to store their belongings, and parents have the option to view classes and relax from our front lobby, or hang out in our parents lounge and view classes from the 42″ TV while enjoying a coffee or snack.

Cleanliness is a must!!! Students must keep their uniforms clean, and have clean hands and feet while training. I do allow students to wear martial arts shoes if the prefer to not train barefoot, however those shoes may not be worn anywhere except on inside our studio. Students are also encourage to bring a water bottle to each class.

MY CURRICULUM

There is no particular style of martial arts taught here, which may seem difficult to comprehend at first, until you’ve begun your training.

The type of training I’ve gone through in my life and how I to this day continue to train, have shaped and sculpted my curriculum. It is truly unique, and designed to provide massive amounts of information to my students without overwhelming them or wasting their time with meaningless forms and traditions. Every aspect of their training is about maximizing their understanding of “how to apply” rather than “how to perform”.

Here, my students do NOT memorize forms, perform traditional skills, attend tournaments, break boards and bricks, or sign up for expensive “Black Belt Clubs”… ugh… how I despise these dead traditions and tactics used by these instructors to pull more money from your wallets each month. I have to force myself to not go off on a tangent regarding all their nonsense. If I seem arrogant, I’m not. If I seem biased, I am. I’ve been through all that garbage and never found any use or value to it. What I do now, is the direct result of my passion for quality martial arts training, while never sacrificing the integrity or reputation of my business.

The curriculum and structure of training I provide is entirely about discovery and continuing improvement (hence the name “Kaizen”). Rather than memorizing forms and performing impractical skills, my students apply their skills as they learn them. The drills are designed to develop muscle memory, instinct, situational awareness, and concept application. Students learn at an accelerated rate, however I don’t accelerate their belt advancement for my youth students. Here, earning a Black Belt still holds value for them. It is not a race or competition, nor is it a status symbol.

My adults require no ranking system at all. There are no formalities or titles, and most importantly, my adults train in techniques that are appropriate, practical, effective, and safe. Seriously… why so many martial arts studios make their adults do jump spin kicks and head kicks and flying kicks is beyond me. It’s not practical, nor is it effective or safe. Instead, as I train them and develop their foundation skills, they focus on the “feeling” of the technique, and it’s “flow and purpose”. The end result is a student who understands what they’ve learned, and they have the ability to apply it in the real world, when the attacker or opponent is for real.

The Business of
Martial Arts

While I am a business owner who survives by memberships, I am first and foremost a trainer dedicated to offering my students the highest quality of martial arts and self-defense training they can find.

Yes… I am a business owner. Yes… I hope to earn and maintain your business through a membership. However, NO… I will never raise my rates or sell my students expensive Black Belt Club memberships or have them attend tournaments. No… I will never sell out or water down my curriculum or become what I define as a “McDojo Belt Factory”.

My business earns it’s income through customer satisfaction and loyalty. My families know I’m not going to try milking them for sales or seminars or tournaments or membership upgrades… EVER. They are here because the want to be here. I never use any gimmicks, and I never pressure anyone into a membership. I offer monthly, 6-month, and 12-month memberships as well as single and family types. I show families everything up front, that they will ever experience at my studio, so there are never any surprises.

If you are serious about your training, and seeking a serious program with a serious trainer… then I hope you will consider Kaizen Tactical Martial Arts. If you attend my two week trial and decide it’s not the right fit for you, then I at least appreciate the opportunity. Otherwise I hope to become a trusted guide and mentor along your path in tactical combatives.
