Evolve All Martial Arts Approach 

In order to understand our aims in practicing martial arts you should first understand the Evolve All mindset and its values. Our goals are to create a space where personal growth is of the utmost importance. Anything that challenges, causes us to reflect, or deepens our understanding of our unique selves is encouraged. These are our best opportunities for growth. We also believe that training should be holistic: the mind should be sharpened, the spirit should be tempered, and the body should be optimized. They all work together to bring out our best. Finally, we put great value in the community of people that all work towards the same goals. It gives us a way to get feedback, encouragement and to live a happier life with more meaningful relationships. We are all teachers and we are all students… at all times. The Evolve All mindset is blanketed over all of our programs and drives the curriculum and training style, including our martial arts practice. Understanding the way we think will give a better understanding in our choices for martial arts training, and what some would call our style. We aren’t just a Tae Kwon Do school, we aren’t just a Karate school, and we don’t just teach Muay Thai or Jiu-Jitsu. We believe that in order to grow we have to be open to all that could teach us something useful. If we were to teach a single style we would set up a system that could possibly limit us and our growth. Instead we embrace the differences and take what is useful to the individual. Every martial arts practitioner is different and that is a good thing. Another very important aspect of our martial arts training and our studio, is that we are always evolving. Meaning that our “style” will always look to improve upon itself. The studio you see today will not be the same in 10 years. There will be vast improvements, refinements and adaptations to better fit the environment and the current situation. What drives our martial arts training is the ability to battle any situation including the everyday struggles that come with each and everyone of our lives. When a martial artist is confident, disciplined, focused, and has a strong sense of character, they are better equipped and able to deal with life’s stressful situations. We look forward to growing with you!

There are certain few people you meet in your life that have the “it” factor – an ability to draw attention without effort and remain calm and collected even in the face of adversity – and Emerson Doyle, Master Instructor at Evolve All Martial Arts Training Center, is one of those people.  Combine this with a deep knowledge and technical command of martial arts and Master Emerson is an extremely effective teacher/instructor.  Master Emerson’s style and effectiveness extends to each of his instructors making Evolve All a wonderful place to pursue martial arts. So, if your children (or even you) are interested in learning martial arts or you would like to get in better shape in a positive, family-friendly environment, talk to the team at Evolve All.  If you are not immediately sold by the friendly smiles and the warm-welcome then stick around and watch the instructors do what they do best.  They are definitely in their element when teaching.

After being absent from martial arts for a long time, I decided that I kind of miss practicing and needed to find a gym that would be a good fit for my needs. I also enjoy crossfit, bootcamp and zumba workouts and practice yoga. So when I saw what this school had to offer I felt like it was a match made in… I’ve tried almost every class available to me and have enjoyed each one. All classes are performed without wearing shoes as they have padded floors and an astro-turf area. It’s really cool how they have 3 partitioned training areas. Clean bathrooms and changing areas are also available. Adult martial arts – One hour long and emphasizes on learning and improving on the foundations of any martial art. How to throw various punches and kicks. How to move your body, keep your balance, judge your distance from an opponent, and work on your speed, power and timing. You get to spar with your classmates (wearing pads of course) and attack the punching bags they have. Sparring with classmates is done  carefully and gets your body used to punching and kicking and the stuff I mentioned, while attacking a punching bag lets you go full power. There’s a great feeling of camaraderie between the students and the classes are fun. Ryan B.
