About Sovereign Martial Arts

To a Belleville resident ready for an
amazing experience with martial arts,

Martial arts is so ingrained into my life, that I can't imagine my life without it. More importantly, I can't image my life without the gift of bringing martial arts to our community. It's why I get up in the morning with so much enthusiasm, and why I work as hard as I can to make my martial arts school an amazing experience for everyone who walks through our doors.

Here's a glimpse into the results of this effort. You'll find out a bit about our instructors, how we do things here, our facility, as well as what martial arts is really all about.

Read it over, and give us a call when you're done to get started now. I can't wait for martial arts to become a part of your life, too.

Passionate Instructors Who Really Care.
One of the biggest pieces of feedback we get is about our instructors. The men, women & children of our community just can't get enough of their passion and enthusiasm. That's because martial arts isn't a “hobby” or something our instructors just “do on the weekends.” It's something they believe in. Something that's embedded into every area of their lives.

And our instructors can't help but pass along this enthusiasm and passion onto every student they encounter. They're motivational, encouraging, supportive, and knowledgeable. Have a question? A challenge? A problem? They've got you covered.

An Uplifting, Clean & Safe Environment.
Martial arts training requires weapons-handling, falling and landing on cushioned mats, and doing exercises and drills that require getting down on the floor. As such, we take great pride in keeping our matted floors impeccably clean, and our equipment safe and up to date. You'll have no worries working with our equipment. And the moment you walk through our doors, you'll notice that we take great care of our studio - because we want you to have a great experience here.

Entire families train with us here. Kids train with kids. Adults train with adults. Lots of our members live within walking distance of each other, and many are friends outside of our classes. The result: a close, family-like sense of community here. And the moment you join our classes, you'll feel right at home with this community.

Students who have been training for a while help out the beginners. Exercises often require partners, and students take advantage of this to encourage and cheer each other on.

No one is competing with anyone else here. No one is trying to “show off” or “out do” the next guy. Everyone just wants to learn and grow and help each other out.

Get Started Now.
Take your time browsing around our website. You'll find information on all of our programs, get access to our exclusive online specials, and most importantly - you can get signed up today.

I can't wait to meet you in person, and help you reach your goals with martial arts. Whether you're looking for fitness, inner-growth, or self-defense - we'll help you get there.

Childrens Karate, Taekwondo, Kung Fu

Many kids just aren't cut out for team sports. Either they're not as athletic as the other kids, simply don't enjoy the pressure and competition, or just prefer athletics where they can learn and grow at their own paces. Kids like this who are put into team sports often experience devastating blows to their self-esteems. They feel like they're “letting the team down”, and as such, feel lots of guilt and shame. Martial arts is an amazing alternative for kids like this. Kids learn and advance through the belt ranks at their own speeds. They get great exercise, but if they're not athletic, they're not “holding anyone back.” As such, martial arts is a great self-esteem booster for kids who just aren't cut out for team sports.

Krav Maga Self Defense

If you're looking for an adult martial arts class with more of an “edge”, our Krav Maga classes might be just what you've been looking for. Discover a martial art that was founded as a solution for two simple problems: self-defense and fitness. When the state of Israel was first declared a country in 1948, its people immediately found themselves surrounded by enemies. They needed to teach their populace self-defense for combat, and get them in shape in case of attack. Krav Maga solved both of these problems. Because it works with your body's natural instincts, it's easy to learn. And the fast, forceful motions build muscle and stamina.

Quick note: our classes are in a supportive, fun community. There are no “bullies” or “ picking on the new guys.” Everyone is dedicated to success, fun and learning. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu: the art of unstoppable grappling and submission techniques. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu teaches you what to do when an opponent is on top of you, grabbing you, or what to do if you fall on your back. It uses joint locks, takedowns, and grabs that will cause your opponent to either surrender, or face broken bones. Muay Thai: a lethal martial art based on hard, fast strikes from the hands, legs, knees and elbows.
