Adult Karate Program

So you think you are too old to train, maybe too far out of shape, haven't worked out in years, or you missed your time? Think again!

Here at Mountain States International Black Belt Academy, we train in a safe, structured environment. All of the instructors and fellow students are friendly, very encouraging, and we are all careful with each other. The instructional staff is dedicated to helping our students acquire skills in self-defense and helping them get in the best shape of their lives. You will learn skills that will benefit you in all areas of your life, including confidence, self-esteem, flexibility, increased coordination, stress reduction, and patience.

Our program will help you stay in shape, gain flexibility, become more disciplined, build strength, and tone your body. You will gain confidence and self-esteem by improving your physical fitness, body composition, and self-defense skills.

Our highly enjoyable workouts are great for creating a fun atmosphere and developing friendships that come along with exercising and training with other positive people who have similar goals and are like-minded. We have found at IBBA that people who train together and support one another end up building friendships that can last a lifetime. What better way to spend your time than by staying fit and developing a skill that could be life-saving, all while meeting people who could end up becoming your friends for life? We call it “exercise with a purpose!"

IBBA Kenpo Karate is a fun,
fulfilling workout for teens & adults

Our students really appreciate the difference between IBBA Martial Arts and Kenpo Karate training and standard exercise programs, even over other martial arts styles and schools. Students say they get a great workout and it is never boring. You don't have to be in great shape to get started. We have adult students of all ages, shapes and sizes. Nobody judges you at IBBA. There is no intimidation or embarrassment.

Our karate classes relieve stress

IBBA Karate classes are well known for their stress-relieving benefits. The emphasis on mind and body training goes far beyond the benefits of standard, health club type exercise programs.

Our classroom practice sessions give you confidence

The confidence building part of our program is what students appreciate the most. Nothing can take the place of the security in knowing that you can defend yourself if you have to, as well as fend off negative pressure from all the things life has to throw at you on a daily basis.

What we teach you could save your life

At our school, everything we teach is reality based. Our instructors work very hard to ensure that most any situation you might encounter is covered in the classroom under very safe and encouraging learning conditions.

If you’re still not sure if this is for you, please give us a call right now so we can set you up with a free, no-obligation personal appointment with one of our instructors/staff members.

We promise, it will be the best thing you’ll ever do.
