Family Martial Arts

Family Martial Arts in Lafayette

It seems that our lives are very busy these days, and finding time to enjoy and reconnect with your family can be a challenge . . .

The Martial Arts are a great way to spend quality family time together as you build mind and body fitness!

Hi, this is Justin Buford,

I want you to know how important I believe family time is for everyone in the Lafayette area. At Acadiana Krav Maga, our martial arts programs will help you develop valuable new skills and healthy habits that carry over to every facet of life, together as a family!

The benefits of Martial Arts training for your family are holistic:

  • Life balance: mental, emotional, and physical fitness for each member of the family
  • Stress relief: the physical exertion of Martial Arts is not only great exercise, but a fantastic way to relieve harmful stress!
  • Quality time: spent having fun learning valuable skills together!
  • Safety: the assurance that each member of your family will be physically and mentally prepared to protect themselves and each other.

Remember, families from all over Youngsville, Carencro, Duson, Lafayette are finding out that the family that kicks together, is the family that sticks together!

Sincerely,
Justin Buford
