The Dallas martial arts landscape has over 200 schools to choose from. And with that many in Dallas which should you choose...Taekwondo, Kenpo, Jujitsu, Judo, Karate, Muay Thai, Kickboxing, Mixed Martial Arts, something Self-Defense or H2H Combatives oriented, or something that combines the best from each? The goal of Mann's Martial Arts is to give you an exhilarating workout while instilling in you street-effective techniques and concepts from the best of each. We excel in helping those of all ages who feel they are out-of-shape, unathletic, even older adults, those with handicaps, injuries, or physical limitations, discover what works for them. Recent statistics show our average student age at 33 yrs old and that 40% of our students were females. Many schools have a much lower average age and percentage of females. We take additional pride in the high adult retention rate we're able to maintain compared to most schools, and unlike most schools, what we teach and how we teach revolves around achieving that. We believe the numbers speak for themselves, and are a testament that our unique approach not only works, but makes martial arts realistic for all ages, genders and physical conditions.
There are many factors to consider when choosing a martial arts school. Some may want to learn a kicking art, others may not be that interested in kicking, or have limitations that make lots of head-high kicks too difficult for them. Others may want something more hands-oriented as a backup to kicking, should they one day not be able to kick. We explore how much kicking each student can-or-can't-do and tailor individual fighting styles around that. Our hand-oriented techniques are speed based, flowing from blocks, to strikes, locks, throws, chokes, and devastating finishing moves. Students who've tried other schools have told us our program is one of the most complete and realistic.
Kicking may not last forever?
Yes, it's true. The instructor has seen countless instances in his decades in that arts of some instructors (and even "masters") eventually getting to where they can't kick anymore, due to kicking injuries or wear-and-tear, and dropping out of the martial arts forever. Often he's found this is due to either improper or excessive training methods, or trying to make kickers out of people whose bodies really weren't designed for lots of head-high kicking. An instructor who can recognize this, and adjust each students fighting style accordingly, will help insure that student is able to experience a lifetime of benefits from the martial arts, and not just a year or two. Our training program is designed so that if kicking is difficult for you now, or if years later your physical condition changes and it becomes difficult, you can focus more on other techniques we teach.
Mr. Mann feels each student should benefit from their martial arts training for a lifetime, and not just a few years, until a person can't do certain acrobatic or head-high kicks anymore. Thus his approach is to train everyone with that in mind!
Mr. Mann has chosen the schools name so that it represents his feeling about lifelong martial arts training. The schools acronym (MMA) is representative of the broad range of techniques he teaches.
Whether you choose us or someone else, we hope our website assists you in choosing wisely. Your martial arts journey should begin with acquiring information that assists you in making the right choice. Unless you've been a school owner, or had lots of them tell you their dirty tricks, there are many things you won't know to ask and that most school owners won't divulge, before you sign their contract. Sometimes just 1 or 2 of those dirty tricks can create incredible misery for you on-down-the-road, once you've figured them out. Students should have a right to know those things upfront, and that they do exist on a much grander scale than they could imagine. It's unbelievably easy to end-up in the wrong school, while trying to find the right one, and either partly or entirely wasting lots of time and money. We hope the articles below will give those who really are the most important, yet often not treated that way in traditional martial arts schools (the students), the highest probability of achieving their martial arts dreams. We strongly recommend you take the time to read the first (4) articles below:
