Conrad Jones Karate has been helping children and adults stay active, healthy and safe for over 40 years. We're located inside TOA Sports Performance Center (formerly AGame Sportsplex), and we're surrounded by a group of wonderful like-minded folks whose intentions are to help children and adults be healthy and active while having fun! We also teach classes for the students at Battleground Academy, Generations Christian Academy, Ironwood Academy, Creative Care Center and Montessori School of Franklin.
In our classes, the purpose of martial arts is to become a better person by building character traits that will help us throughout our entire lives, such as respect, manners, self-control, patience and perseverance. In our children's classes, we'll help increase their self-confidence, build their self-esteem, and show them how to avoid negative peer pressure, physical conflicts, and deal with bullies and strangers. We'll reinforce the importance of eating healthy foods, exercising, personal hygiene and safety ... all while having a great time! Martial arts is an individualized sport; there are no bench warmers! Each person learns at their own pace. Our classes are a perfect blend of education, motivation and FUN!
Three-time light heavyweight point sparring champion Conrad Jones brought his tournament-fighting experience into his classes to help keep everyone OUT of fights! A national finalist for Martial Arts Instructor of the Year by the largest martial arts organization in the world, Mr. Jones and his instructors work on drills in every class to increase the odds that if your child is ever put into a situation with a bully or stranger, they will know what to do, and fast!
Teenagers and adults also enjoy the benefits of exercising while learning practical and simple self-defense techniques which are easy to learn and easy to use if the situation should ever arise. We provide a wide variety of family-oriented martial arts training. Our core practice is Wado Ryu Karate, although we also integrate other styles such as grappling, jiujitsu, pressure points and weapons training.
