Programs at Cutting Edge
Our goal at Cutting Edge is to help each individual student reach their personal goals. We understand that each student is unique and requires different types of instruction to help motivate them to achieve their highest potential. Cutting Edge is not an afterschool activity, but rather a program designed to foster a lifestyle both inside and out of the Dojang (school). All of our activities are designed to help a student develop a sense of personal responsibility, gain confidence, make better decisions, become more active in our community and learn to persevere through challenges in life. Our programs have a strict emphasis on defense, and not becoming offensive. Our techniques and concepts are taught to be used only as a last resort for self defense.
Cutting Edge offers a number of wonderful martial arts programs that we have developed over the past decade that ensure that we live up to our name, Cutting Edge. Our philosophy is that the old world meets the new, the East meets the West. By doing this, we do not take away from the arts that we teach, but work to enhance the practice, help students find the joy in the training, inspire them to be at their very best and mentor them through life's journey as they wind their way towards Black Belt and beyond.
