Self Defense

Combined with our traditional and sport martial arts, the adult class incorporates “situational” defenses that nearly all adults might encounter. Adults will learn defenses that will help them gain control over any situation. And… if we can be real for a moment… we’re going to teach you things that actually work.

Self defense is one of the most contributing factors for opening MN Karate & Fitness. We don’t want students having a false sense of security simply because of the color of their belt.

Students will be expected to perform classical martial arts defenses, sparring defenses, and those interested will have an opportunity to practice light contact kickboxing/Muay Thai. We do this so you’re confident in knowing that if you can defend yourself against a trained attacker, you’re capable of defending against an untrained attacker.. Think MMA without all the tough guys wearing Affliction shirts, and without the need to train like you’re getting in the cage to take an elbow to the face 🙂


Our adult program is a total fitness package combining strength, endurance and flexibility. We incorporate the latest in exercise physiology, which helps build strength and definition. The program provides excellent cardiovascular conditioning, which boosts your daily energy. Each class also includes a variety of stretching exercises to help you avoid injuries and feel more agile.

At every belt level you must meet certain fitness requirements. Everything we set is attainable and can be modified to meet your special needs or abilities. We believe that you must be able to defend yourself and be physically and mentally fit to truly reach the black belt level.


Some people spend hundreds of dollars on seminars and books to learn goal setting, public speaking and time management skills. However, martial arts teaches all of these things in a stimulating, enjoyable and rewarding atmosphere. Our program allows you to see your abilities grow and feel your body become stronger and more fit. The confidence you will build is invaluable and will only help you achieve the goals you set for yourself outside of class. Many times when we think about the benefits of martial arts–self esteem, respect, self discipline and focus–we generally associate them with children and not adults. The reality is that our martial arts programs have the same effect for kids and adults alike. At MN Karate & Fitness, we believe all levels of martial arts are built on the same philosophy.

What Do We Mean by “Quality Martial Arts?”

Unfortunately there’s no set standard for martial arts instruction… This means most people never really know until its too late whether or not their child is learning something of value. At MN Karate & Fitness, we take pride in developing top level competitors and have a rich history in training and being trained by top level competitors at all belt ranks.

More importantly, we take time to understand each individual member’s needs and work tirelessly to help each member succeed in the way that suits them best. Each person is unique, and everybody learns differently. We combine audible, visual, and physical instruction to incorporate as many senses as possible to help each member in the class learn the way they know best.

By creating engaging drills and activities, members are more engaged and therefore remember more of the drill.

Leadership Development

Adults & Teens will have an opportunity to demonstrate through classroom instruction and leadership everything they’ve gained from their training at MN Karate & Fitness. Leadership students will not only assist in classroom instruction, but will take on leadership responsibilities at home, at school, and during community events.

My son has been a member of Hive Martial Arts for almost a year and the experience has been excellent. The instructors and support staff are inspiring, engaging, firm, and even entertaining – perfect for keeping young people engaged as they rigorously work their bodies. The lessons incorporate not only physical skills but mental skills and awareness. I highly recommend Hive Martial Arts.

The teachers here are awesome! My son has been doing karate at this studio for a couple years. He loves it here. I drive into Minneapolis from the suburbs just to come here. I will follow them anywhere. This is the best studio ever! I’ll never go anywhere else!

The teachers work with the particularities of each child, and recognize their abilities. Confidence encourages them to strive and to progress, this is what happened with my son. The concentration, his fine and gross motor has improved a lot. The love, courtesy and respect is in the air of this school.
