At Championship Martial Arts, “Building Champions in Life” is not just the school tagline but part of the training philosophy.  They believe in the complete personal development of each student. 

Husband and wife team, Scott and Julie Mischke, opened the martial arts school in 2016 to create a fun and family-friendly atmosphere for students.  

As fourth- and fifth-degree black belts with many years of experience, the couple founded Championship Martial Arts on the strategies of teaching age-based learning. 

“We understand that different ages need to learn different things at different times,” Scott said.

The school focuses on traditional Tae Kwon-Do and other Pilipino martial art techniques, a curriculum that builds strong focus and increases self-confidence and discipline. 

“We are very structured in what we do,” Scott said. “We teach kids how to set goals, achieve those goals, and how to follow the rules.”  

Students as young as 4 can participate in programs that focus on developmental skills: running, jumping, crawling, and drills with multi-step commands. Teen to adult programs focus on the social aspect and having fun while learning to defend oneself. 

Self-confidence is an elevated benefit of practicing Tae Kwon-Do, and the school has seen many transformations since opening. 

“Kids come in who may be quiet and shy,” Scott said. “Then they start training, realize they can do the hard work, and they become more confident.” 

Martial arts training is a valuable skill that can translate into other areas of life, including family, friends, school, jobs, and society at-large by focusing on the principles of courtesy, integrity, perseverance, self-control, and indomitable spirit.  

“It’s a great activity for parents and children, to train together,” Scott said. “We want everyone to be successful.”
