About Our School
Welcome to the KarateBuilt.com website! You have found the right place for you and your family to do martial arts. KarateBuilt™ martial arts schools offer classes for pre-school kids and elementary age children in addition to our famous ATA programs for teens and adults. The programs include beginner martial arts, advanced Black Belt classes, leadership training and instructor certification. KarateBuilt.
In the renowned Karate For Kids™ programs, the children are taught age relevant curriculum to help them build self-esteem, increase personal self-discipline, get fit and of course be safe from bullying and other dangers that kids face in today’s world. These classes (unlike most kids activities) are taught by full-time professionals who are background checked and trained for hundreds to thousands of hours during the course of their instructor training.
In our Adult and teen classes some of the students have goals to lose weight or get in shape. Others want a high-energy workout to complement other sports or hobbies. And other students want to dedicate themselves to being safe!
KarateBuilt schools are located all over the metro area – usually only 5 to 10 minutes from you!
KarateBuilt™ Martial Arts Academies were founded by Sr. Master Greg Moody – recognized across the country as one of the nation’s number one martial arts instructors. He has a Ph.D. in education and is dedicated to making our martial arts state-of-the-art so every student can maximize their potential in everything they do.
Sr. Master Moody was recognized by the American Taekwondo Association (the largest single style martial arts organization in the world) as the Instructor of the Year. In addition, he was awarded for developing a special curriculum for pre-school age kids called Tiny Tigers. He is also the nation’s foremost researcher in martial arts benefits in conjunction with Arizona State University.
KarateBuilt™ Academies have been selected the Nation’s Number One Schools for eight years in a row – no school has ever earned that honor more.
Why Choose KarateBuilt Martial Arts Academy
For our kid students: Most parents who choose an activity aren’t even aware that most kids activities can damage kids self-esteem, are taught by part-time people or parent volunteers, and don’t really teach anything beyond physical activity. We always offer a full-time professional staff, classes 6 days a week, and a curriculum that is based on making the individual succeed all while learning life skills like respect, discipline and communication.
For our adult students: Adults have a wide variety of goals when they start here. Some want to lose weight, some want to get in incredible shape, some want to learn self-defense and others want all of it! The instructors at KarateBuilt™ Martial Arts work with you individually so that each of these goals can be met. The requirements for instructor certification are 10 times more stringent than what a personal trainer at the gym has to endure so our staff can get you where you want to go!
