Martial Arts is a complete discipline of Body, soul, and spirit; A pursuit of excellence, leadership, character, and a practice of Peace. All of our martial art programs help children and adults build Self-discipline, Character, Confidence, embrace a healthy lifestyle, and learn a culture of honor.
The techniques and tools taught during training provide students with necessary life skills to be joyful, succeed, and become responsible leaders in life!
Our real goal through the martial arts is personal transformation and life development, character, and faith. The physical tutor of katas (forms), partner work, various self defense techniques, exercise and more, are all utilized as teaching points about life, faith, and personal responsibility. We train the Body but more than that we train the heart and the mind!
I love that I get to speak into and empower people to become their greatest self, get breakthroughs, and progress in their goals.
Josiah is great with the kids and I'm blessed he is a leader and teacher in my son's life. SOWA has a great influence on the children and they incorporate God and his word into it in a special way. So grateful SOWA is an extension of raising up my child. Proverbs 22:6
Josiah is a great teacher who is willing to take that extra step so that each student can grow and succeed.
Josiah is an outstanding coach. He is extremely knowledgeable about fitness, health, and movement. He knows exactly how to push each of his clients to achieve their best, and truly tailors his approach to the abilities and needs of his clients. He is an excellent motivator and is a great support system. I have been working with him for the past few months and have accomplished things I never thought possible fitness-wise in that short time. His overall approach is excellent - balancing long term goals with shorter term accomplishments and milestones that really helps to achieve sustainable results. Everybody would benefit working with him - both those that are looking to fine tune their athletic ability to gain a competitive edge in sport as well as those looking to overhaul their overall health for the better. I’ve been associated with sports and exercise for the majority of my life and he is one of the best coaches I’ve ever had.
Josiah is a great instructor! Very patient, articulate and really helps connect martial arts to life. My son loves going to karate and I love the way it has helped him to be more focused and self controlled.
