The Best Youth Martial Arts Around
We value family time.
You as the parent have many different and important things that you have to do. That is why our youth martial arts programs are based on family time. Your child only needs to come once a week for an hour. Our mixed age classes allow you to bring your different age children to the same class. That means only one trip per week for martial arts. How great is that?
Each class has fun drills that teach martial arts principles, self-defense, coordination and agility development. A mat chat is included that teaches anti-bully skills, health and nutrition, character, manners, safety, and other life skills. Give your child more than kick, punch, give them a complete system of physical, mental and self-defense development.
What People in Town are Saying about Total Ryu Martial Arts
My husband and I have been in a variety of martial arts in the last 20 years in multiple states. When my daughter turned 6 we decided to enroll her in a martial arts class. We tried classes at a number of places around town but Total Ryu was the best choice for us. We could only commit to one night a week and the quantity and quality of learning at Total Ryu is exceptional. She has been in class for about a year and loves it. She loves it so much she wanted her 4 year old brother to join as well. I was worried he would be too young to focus for an hour but the instructors are amazing and provide one on one attention, direction and truly care about the kids. Depending on our schedule the kids have taken both the Karate and Jujitsu class. I like that it’s more traditional in nature compared to some MMA/competition focused schools in town. The kids have great practical instruction, time to discuss concerns during the mat chats and of course a game to wind up the class. I appreciate the cards sent home with a personal note and picture from each belt advancement. A small touch but it shows how much they care about each student. We love Total Ryu and have recommended them to a number of friends.
I have been going to Total Ryu for over 3 years now. It is definitely one of the best experiences I have ever had. It is very apparent from the moment you come in that this is a positive nurturing environment. The emphasis is on learning, and on positive aspects of being a respectful, nurturing member of society. I have seen people of all athletic and learning abilities be successful at Total Ryu. It is definitely not a McDojo, and you will get out of it everything you put into it.
Total Ryu is a super environment for all ages to learn key life skills and to have fun. This is not a “high volume sport competition” approach to martial arts. All instruction is founded on the core values of respect for others, respect for self as well as life skills of threat awareness/avoidance with practical, realistic self-defense principles. Charles and Jill offer a variety of classes including group and individual training made to fit busy schedules from childhood through all life stages and physical fitness levels. They offer great programs for those looking to start or get back in shape, improve flexibility, sustain balance/coordination and ramp up overall fitness and endurance. Karate and jujitsu adult programs are great classes to add diversity to your cross training fitness regimen. If you are looking for a positive experience for continual learning and physical fitness, Total Ryu is it.
Total Ryu has been an incredible experience for my daughters. I love their approach to multi-level / multi-age instruction because it lets kids mentor and learn from each other, AND it’s an after-school activity that my Kindergartner and 4th grader can participate in together.
My teenage son has really found his niche doing jiu jitsu at this martial arts studio in Fort Collins. He absolutely loves it there and would be there many more times a week if he didn’t have so much homework! They are teaching him tremendous skills in self defense. He has gained a great deal of self confidence from his experiences at Total Ryu Martial Arts studio.
