I, Brian Lorence, am the head instructor and owner of Lorence Martial Arts. I believe we stand out in multiple ways. First off, we don't use fancy sales tricks. We are honest and upfront about what we charge and how we operate. Secondly, we are a family focused school - we don't want our students to just stop in and go like a cog in a machine. We hope to develop lasting friendships across all the families that are part of our martial arts family. Third, we don't use the shiny, newest fad in our school. I teach genuine taekwon-do and eskrima. And last, I am a practicing martial artist myself, so I am continually learning and honing my own skills and knowledge to be the best martial artist I can be. I hope to inspire my students to be the same no matter their age.
I love the world of martial arts. And I love teaching. So you guessed it - I love teaching martial arts. I get very excited when I get to work with people of any age that really enjoy learning a martial art.
Mr. Lorence integrates the history as well as application of taekwondo. He has a unique ability to teach students of all ages and ability levels.
The owner is truly an exceptional martial artist with integrity and talent. Whether you're over 40 or just 6 years old Lorence martial arts can bring you to the level you desire. Our family has been with Lorence martial arts for over 7 years and have been happy the whole time! 11 out of 10 is the rating we give.
I learned how to defend myself using sticks!
Great instructor...Mr. Lorence is so patient and positive with his students. We have been a part of his tae kwon do family for 7 years. Great experience for kids to learn respect, self control and gain flexibility and confidence! Convenient location. Small class size lends to more personal attention.
I suggest a new student come observe a class before signing up. This helps him or her (adult student or parents of a child) see what our classes are like, see our clean location, meet families in our school, meet me, and get a better feel if we are the right place to start their training in or to make a transition to if looking to advance their training.
Students in either our taekwon-do or eskrima program can then start in one of our introductory courses. This is the 2nd step to help them know if martial art training is what they are looking for and if Lorence Martial Arts is the right place for them to fit in.
I started training in martial arts over 25 years ago. After 4 years I was solo teaching as a young adult. I have owned my own school and run a club for over 10 years. Six years of training in a healthcare environment and working in other "teaching-like" settings have helped me learn even more about teaching with a wide variety of students.
I treat no two students alike. I pay close attention to every one of my students so no one gets passed up no matter their ability level. I have taught students ranging in age from 4 to 60+ and also work with students with challenges like autism or behavioral health diagnoses.
