Academy Of The Martial Way | Flagstaff Family Martial Arts Studio

by Steve

flagstaff martial artsmartial arts studentsAt the Academy of the Martial Way Taekwondo Center in Flagstaff, our mission is to use martial arts to assist our students in successfully developing their minds, bodies, and character to their fullest potentials. As a personal development center we use the vehicle of the martial arts to help students reach that sometimes elusive next level in their lives, from age 7 to 95.

Through the practice of martial arts, specifically through Taekwondo, we learn and grow to become more flexible, calmer, stronger, and more confident than we ever thought possible. I invite you to study martial arts at the Academy of the Martial Way. Allow us to assist you (and/or your child) in taking those first steps on the path towards achieving your FULL POTENTIAL.

Feed The Need

by Mechelle

Thank you everyone. Feeding the need brought out a large group of AMW warriors. We sliced, peeled, chopped, washed and repeated. We hand out lunches, made dinners, cleaned and made a difference to a lot of people. Thank you. It is an honor to serve along side all of you. aa group DSC_0429 DSC_0440 DSC_0441 DSC_0450 DSC_0454 DSC_0459 DSC_0468 DSC_0475 DSC_0482 DSC_0493 DSC_0497 DSC_0502 DSC_0511 DSC_0517 DSC_0533 DSC_0545 DSC_0548 DSC_0550 DSC_0558 DSC_0560 DSC_0561 DSC_0566 DSC_0571 DSC_0572 DSC_0574 DSC_0575 DSC_0580 DSC_0582 DSC_0583 DSC_0584 DSC_0588 DSC_0602 DSC_0606
