We are not like other martial arts schools. We don’t look at character development as a bi-product but as the primary thing we produce in our students. We want to create leaders for life, so whether it is training for kids, teens, or even adults, we focus on the whole person. Our training is both fun and challenging creating an environment where our students can Learn the skills they need for life!
A Place to Grow
3T is not just place to train martial arts but is sooo much more. Here we want our students to be successful in all areas of their lives. We find it is more important that our students are champions in life more than just on the mats. With that being said, our program is all about taking the principles we learn from our training and applying them to every aspect of our lives. Whether that’s the students showing respect to their parents, getting straight A’s in school because they have better focus, or getting that job at 16 because they have the confidence to look the boss in the eyes when they are speaking.
We have a strong training regimen so that students are physically strong and can defend themselves. However, we always try to bring this back to real life and the battles they fight every day; not just the very rare street fight.
Success is a formula and we have mastered that formula. 3T has created many great people through its training program and we continue to develop the individuals that truly want to be successful in their lives. We help develop the goals for our students to go on to college with scholarships, go on to military academies, or simply go on to be leaders in our community.
Our staff is highly trained and each member is required to keep up his/her training in Martial Arts, Leadership, Life Skills, Child Psychology, and their teaching and coaching skills. It is important for our staff to not only be able to talk the talk but also to walk the walk.
Great students begin with great teachers. The world is full of liars and at 3T we want to be different from the world. We want to create honest, focused, disciplined, kind, and powerful people. Earning a Black Belt at 3T is no easy task: you will be pushed, you will be challenged, you will be pushed to your limits, but for those who make it, you will be changed and be able to accomplish anything you set your mind to.
The philosophy is pretty simple: how do you get a student to be able to run a mile? Start with the desire of getting them to run 3 miles. Too many people never are able to leave their comfort zones and therefore will never be able to accomplish their goals. Our job is to create students that aren’t scared to develop themselves to their fullest potential.
