If you want the best training in kickboxing and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu this is the right place. I have learned a lot from both Aaron and Damon at their UL MMA classes. These guys are the real deal and they got skills to get you to the next level in MMA.

Coach Aaron Phillips and his wife are amazing people, from day one stepping into the gym they both knew me by name and greeted me at the door as they do everyday. Coach Aaron is an amazing martial artist and instructor with an amazing staff/coaches beside him who have helped me sharpen my skills tremendously. The facility is also the cleanest I've ever trained at. I couldn't be more satisfied, I've made some amazing friends training here and plan to make many more!

I’ve been here since the beginning with this amazing family. I would definitely recommend Headkicks to everyone of all ages. Aaron, Charity and the entire crew are not only amazing people, but also super knowledgeable in every aspect of martial arts and fitness.

Best place in town!!!

I cannot say enough about this place! The staff right when you walk in to the minutes after classes everyone makes you feel like family. I watched my nephew attend for a year and a half turn into a totally different person. He became the best version of himself to say the least. When we got a break from all extra curricular sports that Ethan plays, I signed him up for the trial so he can experience both worlds and choose what he loved. He has grown from an impatient, hyper 7 year old boy to a more patient, responsible and respectful (majority of the time) boy. When he broke his arm 2 weeks ago the first thing he talked about was his plan that would allow him to still be in kickboxing. You can’t keep him away. He is constantly working on skills and moves and can’t wait for the next class with his coaches and fellow ninjas. If you think for half a second you child would enjoy it sign up for the trial and everyone in that building will go out of their way to help guide you and your ninja in the right direction. You will not regret it one bit. We love everyone there!

What a great way to redirect positive energy and train your mind and body to yeild to what you cant control in your life and to do new things in different stances to challenge your biggest most fierce competitor (yourself..so Bruce Lee would say) ..to gain more control to further be balanced,calm, & collective in life and in the octagon. Great strength, cardio, stamana, and skills training. The fighters there are really skilled and willing to share knowledge . Friendly environment. Great Team. Love , respect.

5 Tips for Staying Safe on Halloween

 

Halloween is such a fun time of the year for children and adults alike; but when children

encounter tricks instead of treats, this holiday can become very scary –

and not just because of the decorations and frightening costumes.

Abductions, bullying, candy that has been compromised; these are all

things that can make Halloween a dreadful holiday for anyone.

 

In order to keep your kids safe this Halloween, educate them before

they put on their costumes and start knocking on the neighbors doors.

Here are 5 tips that can help keep those little ninjas, ghosts, and ghouls

safe this – and every – Halloween.

 

Plan a Route.

Before your kids hit the town to gather goodies, plan a route for

them. It should be one that leads them through well-lit areas that

are heavily populated. The lighter the area and the more people around,

the less likely there will danger lurking. Make sure to discuss the route

with your kids beforehand in case you get separated or you allow your

children to trick or treat with friends.

 

Give them a Cell Phone.

You may not want your kids to have a cell phone on a regular basis,

but on Halloween, you might want to make an exception.

Pre-program the phone with emergency contact numbers so that

if there is an emergency, your child will be able to easily call for help.

Also, it will allow you to call and check up on your child at regular

intervals. If you allow them the freedom to trick-or-treat with friends,

 you’ll still be able to call or facetime to keep a watchful eye, or ear, on them.

 

Talk to Your Child About Potential Dangers.

Discuss possible scenarios that could occur that would be dangerous.

For example, what they should do if someone tries to ask them to get

into their car, or go into their house to get more candy? Provide them

with the right response so that they know how to react and so that they

can avoid a potentially dangerous situation.

 

Light them Up.

This is our new favorite idea for Halloween!  Give your children

flashlights or have them wear glow bracelets or necklaces while

they are trick-or-treating. Doing so will allow them to not only see

what is around them, but will allow others to easily see them.

Cars can be a particular danger while walking on dark streets;

lighting up your kids will make them more visible to drivers.

Besides, who doesn’t love glow bracelets?!

 

Don’t Eat Candy!

Of course, children are going to find it difficult to keep their goodies

out of their mouths; however, parents really need to stress the importance

of waiting until they get home to eat their candy. Once they get home,

you can inspect them to make sure they are safe. Spread the candy out

and go through it together. Remove anything that is unwrapped or looks

questionable. And while homemade treats may seem like a nice gesture,

there is no telling what is inside of them, so nix them.  A great way to

get kids on board with this idea is having a challenge to see who collect

the most candy.  They’ll be excited to count it at the end of the night

and will be less tempted to eat it while trick or treating.

 

We hope your kids have fun this Halloween. By following these 5 tips,

you can ensure that they have plenty of treats and avoid any tricks.
