5th Dan Tang Soo Do and 2nd Dan Kummooyeh

Welcome to HighKix Martial Arts! Our mission is very clear: We provide our students with a lifelong experience in martial arts while promoting a healthy lifestyle.

We are a family-oriented school that’s dedicated to providing the BEST modern martial arts programs in and around Latrobe… and we are second to none! We strive to be more than just a workout gym or training facility.

Our focus is on bringing out the best in you and your family in ALL parts of your life so that you can enjoy a higher quality of life. Nothing brings us more pleasure than to see you learn, grow and progress toward achieving your full potential. 

We specialize in giving men, women and children the proper tools for success, both on and off the mats… tools to be fit, strong and empowered with an emphasis on personal development. Every class is FUN and EXCITING… and it doesn’t matter what age, shape, size or fitness level you are. We love beginners just as much as we do intermediate and advanced students.

If you’re new to martial arts, including Tang Soo Do, Korean Sword or KickFit, and maybe a bit nervous about it, fear not!... because we know you’ll fit in just fine and you’ll be able to keep up – we promise! We’ll train you at your level and in ways that meet your needs. Your goals are our goals and we won’t stop until they’re met.

Martial arts is an EXCELLENT way to give your body, mind and spirit a good workout with all the kicks, punches, strikes and throws you’ll do! You’ll get…

  • A fantastic workout, strong core and a lean body
  • A ton of focus, confidence & strength
  • Much greater self-control and discipline
  • Lower stress & greater happiness
  • A “can do” attitude and excellent follow through skills

Want to know what the BEST part is? It’s super fun, challenging, life-changing, and your kids will have an awesome group of friends with similar interests! Good stuff, huh?

You’d think that martial arts training would cost a fortune… and it probably does at other schools, but not at HighKix Martial Arts. We like to say that we provide “affordable excellence” with PRICELESS benefits.

Check out the SUPER-LOW web special going on right now! It’s 100% RISK-FREE, but for a Limited Time Only. Classes fill up fast because it’s such a fantastic deal so reserve your spot today!

Every epic elbow strike and high kick will boost your child’s confidence! They’ll learn how to become BULLY-PROOF, how to be more aware of other people and their surroundings and be able to spot sticky situations so they can walk away before things get bad.

That confidence carries over into all other parts of their lives too. Watch them apply themselves more, their grades improve, and become role models at home and school. It’ll put a smile on your face as much as it does ours.  

You and your whole family can learn highly effective self-defense techniques, train together and feel safe in this world if bullies, predators or attackers rear their ugly heads. That peace of mind is priceless indeed.  

Martial arts is also an excellent way to get in shape and stay fit for life… and it also reduces stress, worry and anxiety. Where else can you get all that and SO much more in one place?

People choose to train at HighKix Martial Arts because we have high quality, experienced instructors who truly care about you and your success, as well as an exceptional curriculum and an outstanding reputation.

Our state-of-the-art facility is meticulously clean, safe, positive and encouraging. We know those things are important to you, so they’re important to us, too.

With positive reinforcement and an unstoppable spirit, imagine what you and your kids can accomplish in life with those awesome tools for success. Why not give them that gift now and help make their dreams come true

Come see what we’re all about and experience the best prices, the most amazing instructors, and have the most fun you’ve EVER had getting fit!  We can't wait to train with you and cheer you on every time you accomplish something big or small.  See you soon!
