About Our School

The 5 Reasons Our Martial Arts Classes Are
So Life-Changing, For Both Kids & Adults.

Dear Friend,

Our Broken Arrow Martial Arts school might seem like any other place to get fit and learn self-defense.

Well, we do help people with that, but there are some more "subtle" things that happen when you train here.

Here are just a few of those “subtle” but transformational things people walk away with...

#1 Soaring Confidence

No doubt, learning new skills and trying out new techniques is challenging! But when you stay strong and determined to overcome a challenge, and win, you realize you're stronger and more capable than you ever thought possible!

Knowing this makes you feel even stronger and more confident. You feel more sure of yourself and your ability to handle any challenge that comes your way. Both kids and adults feel their self-esteem and confidence soar quickly!

#2 Full on Focus

Focus your mind grasshopper...as you intently listen and concentrate on what your instructor tells you and then do what they taught you. You’ll improve your ability to concentrate and CRUSH your martial arts and fitness goals. 

What’s awesome is that this intense concentration pours into all other areas of your life too. 

Studies have shown that just a half hour of physical fitness improves focus, heightens problem solving ability, and even boosts memory in both kids and adults. 

#3 Pump It Up

Our classes are a blast and based on functional fitness. We use positive motivation and high fives - not military style yelling – and you’ll never have to spend countless hours on a boring treadmill again. 

Our classes are loaded with fun and exciting exercises designed to enhance your self-defense skills. Dynamic strikes, high intensity intervals of cardio training, and physical movements that mimic how the human body should move are the focus. 

Don’t worry if you feel like you won’t be able to keep up. We work with all levels from beginner to pro athlete – and everyone in between. And you know what...they all sweat the same at the end of the workout! 

#4 Family and Friends

We are family and a tight-knit group here. Our members and instructors are all about helping you succeed and making lasting friendships.

The energy here is one that fosters friendship, support, and motivation. It's so awesome to see and feel this.

#5 Loads of Fun

Working out and having fun… say what? Yup, our classes are a blast! Martial arts is a way of life for us and we want you to have a happy and successful life too. We work hard, but we also play hard.

Did you know that the average adult laughs only about 20 times per day? That’s it. Our classes focus on your wholeness, which includes your physical, mental and spiritual health and well-being.

Laughing and smiling are part of every class here… and so are high fives and fist bumps.

Make your fitness dreams come true while learning how to protect yourself and your family.

We’re so dedicated to community improvement and safety that we’re offering a limited time 100% money back guarantee on all web specials. So, if we’re not a good fit for you, no worries. But chances are you’ll love it here. If you’re comfortable signing up over the internet, we highly encourage it. If not, don't hesitate to give us a call: (918) 258-9821

Looking forward to meeting you in person!

Our Krav Maga classes are developed from the mid-1930s Jewish / Israeli history. In those years, anti-Semitic thugs dominated Bratislava and terrorized Jewish citizens. But a man named Imi Sde-Or, also Jewish, became their champion by defending them on the streets.

Imi Sde-Or, in his many street fights, realized that boxing and wrestling had no place in the "real world". He was an Olympic contender in both, so no one knew boxing and wrestling better than he did. He took his experience on the street, combined it with what he already knew, and developed Krav Maga; a unique type of self-defense that utilizes natural instincts for self-protection. Get fit and develop self-defense by joining our Broken Arrow Krav Maga classes.

Our core program focuses on instilling self-control, focus, self-discipline, goal setting, positive attitudes and respect in each student whether they are 4 or 64 years old. Each student will be on a journey of a lifetime creating a stronger body, sharper mind, and unstoppable spirit… while discovering their unique abilities and talents.

Learning is the key to all your work and progress and making the environment super FUN and POSITIVE is the best way to do that. Keeping you safe while helping you reach your goals is our goal.

Do you believe that Martial Arts is just about kicks and punches or winning trophies for display? We don’t. Our objective is to teach the life-affirming art of authentic Tae Kwon Do and to instill self-respect in each student.

Check out the SUPER-LOW web special going on right now! Our classes fill up fast because it’s such a great deal so register today or stop by our facility and see what all this Tae Kwon Do buzz is about!

At our school, we use our ability as teachers and mentors to influence rather than force students into action. This creates self-discipline. By realizing they have choices and the ability, both physical and mental, to deal with challenging situations, our students gain the CONFIDENCE to overcome them.

Children often feel scared and helpless when they become victims of neighborhood or school bullies because they don’t know how to deal with these aggressors. Martial Arts Advantage not only teaches the self-defense skills that our children need in today’s society, it also instills the confidence and self-discipline that leads to self-respect.

Most people think karate teaches kids how to fight. Instead, we teach them the skills and give them the confidence so they don’t have to fight!

Our Instructors are not only some of the nicest people you’ll meet, they’ve have spent many years devoted to training in the art of Tae Kwon Do and other martial arts. Through extensive testing, certification and tournament level competition, we’re proud to say our instructors are the BEST!

We can't wait to empower you and see how fast you grow with us! Join Martial Arts Advantage to experience the best prices, the most amazing staff, and have the most fun you’ve EVER had getting fit!
