Our teaching method reaches all 3 major learning styles; visual, auditory and kinesthetic. We believe in bringing out the best in everyone. Our classes are designed to educate, encourage and support healthy lifestyles by improving self-image.
Each student is invited to go on a Kung Fu Quest. The Quest encourages home practice, completing home chores, developing good manners, and random acts of kindness. Each month students are given a Quest Card to complete.
TMA is a blend of techniques from kickboxing, boxing, Muay Thai kickboxing, Kung Fu and sports conditioning. You get to hit heavy bags, hand targets, self-defence shields and more for an outstanding workout. High-intensity interval training is used to build fitness levels fast! If you want to strengthen your entire body with powerful kicks and energetic combos, then sign up for Kelowna’s best Teens martial arts program today.

Skill level – measured against the 6 skills of a Champion; focus, accuracy, speed, power, intensity, and excellence
Practice – consistent practice ensures progressive skill level
Attendance – a minimum of 18 classes, this does not ensure skill level however, it does teach that success starts with showing up
Good academic grades – to be promoted to any Black Belt Level
This is very normal and can occur at any time on the journey to Black Belt. Maybe a student is not doing their chores, or their grades are not satisfactory. We can help!
It’s important to us that you know that every reward is earned here at Great Way, nothing is just given and that parents always have the final say whether their child gets promoted to their next belt.
If for any reason a parent would like us to withhold a reward they only have to let us know, we are here to support the parents and the child and will not reward them until the parent is happy with the behavioural change.
