Reding Martial Arts Philosophy:
Mark and Nick Reding, Reding Martial ArtsWe use martial arts as a means for growth in all areas of our lives. Our students bring unique skills and backgrounds to the mat every week. Together, we hone our skills and share our experience. We're passionate about focusing our diversity into achieving our common goal: to become better martial artists, and thereby better people.

We believe that the practice of martial arts should always be functional. Our classes teach both the technical and street sides of combat, with an eye toward real-world self-defense. We train across the arts, utilizing stand-up, ground, armed, and hand-to-hand techniques. We explore personal strengths and weaknesses as we strive to prepare our students for whatever lies ahead.

While physical talent and stamina help, we have found that desire and willpower are the real keys to success. We invite students of all ages and ability levels to join us for a class or private lesson.
