23 Years!

Twenty-Three Years!

This October marks Lion’s Way Martial Arts twenty-three years serving the community.  What an amazing ride we are on!  After this last couple years of ups and downs, thanks to covid, it’s so wonderful to still be here doing what we love. I am so thankful for all the students, friends and families who have helped, not only these last years, but from the very beginning. 

For twenty-three years we have set a standard for martial arts training that is hard to compare too. A professional full-time school from day one, with full-time instructors, we set out with a dedication to provide nothing but the best. A level of consistency that is unparalleled! For twenty-three years we have only missed scheduled holidays and vacations, and of course the covid shut down. We are dedicated to being here, so that you will always have a consistent place to train. We are always training and running classes, so many great days, so many great memories!

For twenty-three years we have continued to grow and expand. From simple used mats to wall-to-wall professional grade grappling mats. From a tough scrappy instructor to the only place in the Pacific Northwest to offer Russian CAMBO. From a few dedicated students to the legion of students we have today. We have accomplished so much. In martial arts we’ve had winners in Judo, submission grappling, MMA and more. We’ve offered seminars in grappling, throwing and basic self-defense, which are prized by everyone from black belts to beginners. Outside of martial arts we have seen students grow and apply our lessons in other careers: Lawyers, IT specialist, Doctors, Chefs, small business owners and so many more. We have seen the shy kid become a leader and the challenged kid become confident. We are humbled and thankful by the greatness of our students.

What will the next twenty-three years bring us? We can hardly wait to find out! Each day we push ourselves and each day we strive to be better. Each day our students remind us of the wonders of martial arts and the awesome life that we lead here at Lion’s Way Martial Arts. Whether you are a student, friend, family or finding us for the first time, we welcome you. We look forward to the next steps of our journey, through the good times, the tough times and for all future times.

Three cheers for twenty-three years!

Three cheers for many more to come!
