About Our School

The 5 Life-Changing Gifts of
Martial Arts. For Kids AND Adults.


Bet you thought our Canton Martial Arts school was just a super cool place to get fit and learn self-defense... the truth is it's so much more.

As you get physically fit, you’ll also experience some changes most of our students are NOT prepared for. Especially our younger students. They are absolutely blown away by the subtle changes that happen when you train in our programs.

Below are a handful of those life-changing experiences people walk away with. We can’t wait to hear what kind of positive experiences you can add to the list as well!

#1 Soaring Confidence

No doubt, learning new skills and trying out new techniques is challenging! But when you stay strong and determined to overcome a challenge, and win, you realize you're stronger and more capable than you ever thought possible!

Knowing this makes you feel even stronger and more confident. You feel more sure of yourself and your ability to handle any challenge that comes your way. Both kids and adults feel their self-esteem and confidence soar quickly!

#2 Laser Like Focus

Focus your mind you listen intently and concentrate on what your instructor tells you and then perform what they taught you. With your improved ability to concentrate, there’s no doubt you will SMASH your martial arts and fitness goals.

What’s awesome is that this intense concentration pours into all other areas of your life too.

Studies have shown that just 30 minutes of physical fitness improves focus, heightens problem solving ability, and even boosts memory in both kids and adults.

#3 Let’s Get Physical

Our classes are a blast and based on functional fitness. We use positive reinforcement and high fives instead of military style yelling and endless hours on a treadmill.

This means that each of our classes is loaded with challenging, fun exercises designed to enhance your self-defense skills. Dynamic striking, high intensity intervals of cardio training, and movements that mimic how the human body should move are our focus.

Don’t worry if you feel as though you won’t be able to keep up. We work with all levels from total beginner to pro athlete. And you know what...they all sweat the same at the end of our workouts!

#4 We Are Family

Many martial artists claim they always felt like an “outsider” before they found martial arts. Some of our students just never got into organized sports in school or felt like social clubs weren’t for them. 

But those same students that tell us how they “never fit in” or weren’t popular seem to come alive in class! We provide a safe, non-intimidating environment where we all want each other to succeed. There are no bullies or students trying to one up each other on my watch. 

You’ll get nothing but a lot of support and friendship from our members and instructors. It’s easy to make new friends here and, as a result, our community thrives.

We provide the kind of environment that promotes friendship, encouragement, and motivation. The sense of fulfillment after every class is more than you can imagine. 

#5 You’ll Do FUN Stuff!

No two workouts are ever the same. We use functional fitness focused on getting your body in tip top shape. After all, if you can’t move your body in the real world or have enough endurance to get out of a bad situation then we’re not doing our job right.

You’ll learn how to move your body in fun new ways that will wreck your core, tone your arms and legs, and ensure that you stay as injury free as possible. Of course we do this with positive motivation. No military style yelling or body shaming, ever.

Kids and adults both work hard, but play harder.. Laughing, smiles, and high fives are part of every class.

Make the next chapter of your life the best one ever! We want you to succeed, so we’re offering a limited time 100% money back guarantee on all web specials. 

Yep, that’s how much we believe in you. Scroll up to the top of this page and click on the program that's best for you. Snag the super sweet web special and try us out. If we’re not for you, no worries. You get 100% of your money back – no questions asked.

About the Owner, Kevin Evans

Mr. Evans, an US Army Veteran and retired south Florida police officer / certified law enforcement training instructor, began his martial arts career in 2007 when his 4-year-old son, who was a Tiny Tiger, brought home a Dobok/Gi on father’s day and asked for his dad to take class with him.

Mr. Evans took his first class with his son the next Monday and immediately felt a passion for the art. He started taking 3-4 classes a day 5 days per week, helping in other classes, competing in tournaments, and advancing in rank.

Mr. Evans received his American Taekwondo Association Instructor Certification in 2012, which is a 3-year process. Since then Mr. Evans has continued to advance his training, becoming certified in the ATA Protect Training system, and earned his certification as an ATA trainer of level 1 instructors.  

Mr. Evans also recently became a certified SKILLZ Martial Arts Instructor which focuses on age specific classes and how children learn.  

Mr. Evans is now a 3rd Degree Black Belt and his passion for martial arts continues to be as strong as ever. Both of his sons, Logan, now 11, and Collin, 6, train alongside him.

Kevin Evans became 2014 ATA State Champion in Traditional Forms and Traditional Weapons and in the 2014 top ten in the world for Traditional Forms, Traditional Weapons, Sparring and Combat Sparring. 

Instructor, Master William Hitchcock

Master Hitchcock has been teaching martial arts for over 18 years. He began martial arts by practicing what he saw from martial arts movies and TV shows when he was a child and never stopped. He began taking formal martial arts training in the early 1980’s until he served his country in the US Army from 1984-1988 and became an American Taekwondo Association member in 1985 while serving. 

After serving in the military, Master Hitchcock resumed his martial arts training across multiple arts and in the American Taekwondo Association, where he was certified in 1996 as an instructor. 

Master Hitchcock continued his martial arts growth, becoming a Krav Maga World Wide certified instructor in 2003, and a Purple belt in Jui Jutsu in 2010. Master Hitchcock is also certified in the ATA Protect Training System and is certified in the ATA Train the Trainer system allowing him to train and certify other instructors.

The American Taekwondo Association inducted Master Hitchcock a 6th degree black belt in 2011 as a Master of Instruction in Taekwondo. Master Hitchcock continues teaching daily as well as continuing his journey in martial arts with his 4 children.
