While most people would be correct to associate martial arts with self-defense, odds are they might not realize the wide range of harmful issues the martial artist develops protection against.

Defense Against Violence

Everyday, the headlines remind us of how common violent attacks are in our daily lives. 

Defense Against Negative Influences

Martial artists develop a positive mental outlook on life as the result of the self-confidence that the martial arts instills in students. 

Defense Against Giving Up

Students learn how to create goals and follow through without quitting.  A black belt may take 3 - 5 years to earn. That timeframe may be intimidating to some people. However, the short-term goal of 3 - 5 months to earn your next belt is far more motivating. 

Defense Against Mediocrity

The Black Belt Attitude (BBA) is a commitment to excellence in all areas of life. The BBA question for kids is, “How would a black belt do this? How would a black belt study in school?  For adults, the BBA standard is, “If everyone one in the “_____” were just like me, what kind of  “_____” would this be?” If everyone in this company were just like me, what kind of company would this be? If everyone in this family were just like me, what kind of family would this be?  The BBA creates a personal life standard that motivates our students to live out their full potential.

Defense Against Poor Health

Each class is a cross-training experience that students hardly notice. Because the martial arts is exciting and fascinating to learn, students focus more on the techniques than the exercise benefits.  In short, students are getting in great shape doing what they enjoy.

Defense Against Distraction

Focus is like a muscle. It has to be worked or it will weaken. Our students develop Black Belt Focus and that helps at school, on the job, and at home.

MFC for Adults 

Martial arts has multiple benefits for adults, just as they do for kids and teens. In fact, adults are likely much more in need of the physical and psychological boosts that martial arts provides.

Fitness

Everyone has the same excuses for not exercising. The truth is that when any adult finds an activity that is exciting, fun, and mentally engaging, the excuses go out the window. 

Mind and Body

Few activities have the multiple benefits of mental and physical fitness as martial arts.

Left and Right Side

Every technique you learn is performed and perfected on both sides of your body. Obviously, you can’t ask an attacker to, “Wait, let me change sides!” Beyond the self-defense advantage, learning skills on both sides creates bi-lateral coordination and a healthy balance for your body.

Upper and Lower Body

In addition to the hand and elbow strikes, we will teach you, you will also learn how to kick. Kicking is fun and effective. Your leg is a longer, stronger weapon than your arm. You’ll learn powerful, effective kicks for self-defense, but you’ll also learn some kicks that are more based on a fun athletic challenge than a practical self-defense application.

Focus and Concentration

Martial arts requires a lot of concentration. You need to master the techniques and increase your mental awareness.

Balance and Coordination

Martial arts develops excellent balance and coordination. This is important for adults as they age. They may not be as steady as they used to be. You’ll hear about some active adults falling and hurting themselves. Martial arts is a great way to help you increase your balance and coordination.

Social Network

Moving up through the belt ranks with your classmates is a unique shared experience that often leads to lifelong friendships and professional connections.

MFC Fitness Training

Welcome to the Incredible Fat Burning Machine. We melt pounds at a rate of 800 calories an hour!

MFC was created to focus on one solitary goal; Get You Results Fast!

The MFC Fitness Class is not about sparring, getting hit, belts, uniforms, bowing, or ritual. It's about empowering you to gain control of your body. Our classes are fast and furious because you are moving non-stop for 50-60 minutes depending on the class.

Adult Boxing

This class includes punching, knee strikes, and elbows, but no kicking. This is ideal for people who lack flexibility or have little interest in learning how to kick.

Adult Kickboxing

This is more challenging than our Boxing class because kicking takes far more effort than punching. Kicking adds an athletic challenge and variety to the class not to mention kicking shapes your legs so if you've ever wanted the legs of a dancer, kicking will sculpt them for you.

MFC for
Self-Defense

Warning: Graphic Video

When violently attacked,  most people will pay anything to make it stop. By then, it's too late.

  • No martial arts experience required.
  • Learn how criminals choose their targets.
  • Learn how to recognize pre-attack indicators.
  • Discover how you are making yourself a target right now and how to stop it.
  • Learn verbal, physical, and psychological self-defense.
  • Learn how to turn everyday items into deadly weapons.
  • Your safety is your birthright. This is how you protect that right.
  • Most people shut down under stress. You will learn to stay in control.

MFC Self-Defense Training

Modern Fighting Concepts emphasizes easy-to-learn techniques that have been battle-tested in real, life threatening confrontations. There is nothing flashy about the system.

The first thing I realized is how little I knew about my own vulnerability. I was stunned at how often, in day-to-day activities, I make myself an easy target. This course should be required in high school.

Reviews From Our Students

This school is amazing...What a treat to bring my son here and see first hand his growth with Joe Parker.

Not only does he hold the students to a certain standard but the Parents as well. I wouldn't spend my hard earned money anywhere but Modern Fighting Concepts.

Chad Minnes

I have been a student of Sifu off and on for 10 years and love the teaching style he has.All of the lessons I have learned have been applicable to my testing for nursing,medic testing 8 years ago.There have been ups and downs but the experience has been a life changing good time. I congratulate Sifu for the work and dedication he has for the Arts.

Jim Shockley

I've been to other schools and never felt comfortable. Not to say they were bad schools, but I just didn't feel that I belonged there. After my first class with Joe Parker and Orlando I knew this place was perfect for me. My son really wanted to try a class also. As soon as he walked on the mat he had the biggest smile on his face. When I joined I had no interest in Brazilian jiu-jitsu. Joe lent me a gi and I tried a class. I was hooked.

John Chase

I have multiple families. MFC pushes me to be a better human being AND a better fighter.
