  • Something Positive!

    We start this Monday heading into the holiday season with something a little different. Usually we stick to topics relating to Lion’s Way and motivating people to train. We are making a small exception today for a personal project from our owner / head coach Skip Scherer.

    Today we are proud to announce the launch of Skip’s first book Warship Ares! As a hobby, Skip has been writing for many years, this release marks his first major work! A scifi /adventure / action story that reads like a blockbuster movie! This is just the start of an exciting new series.

    Available in paperback and kindle editions (also on Kindle Unlimited!) We will have copies at the school, but are still waiting on delivery. Until then you can check it out on Amazon.

    Even in this crazy year, you can accomplish positive things if you just keep trying!


  • Friday!

    Every day take a moment and remember the good things in life. Even just one minute focusing on the positive can make dealing with stress just a little easier. Each little step forward, be it in attitude or physical health, is a step towards a goal. Keep moving forward!

    Next week we enter Thanksgiving! Remember to be thankful and find the good things in life. Lion’s Way Martial Arts wishes you the best as we enter this holiday season.

  • Keep going!

    Keep training! As stress enters our lives, one thing we have learned as martial artist is that training makes things better. Not only does it improve your physical well being, but it strengthens your mental well being too!

    We are here for you. We have training options available and as always are working hard to make sure you can get the most you can out of Lion’s Way Martial Arts. It’s been a tough year, but we can get through it together.

    Stay strong, it will get better.

  • Friday the 13th – 2020!

    Welcome to Friday the 13th 2020! While we are not normally superstitious here at Lion’s Way, this being 2020, we’re at the very least staying aware. Haha.

    Hope nothing but great things are happening to you today. Our classes are running and, if you’re in training, we’ll make it a great day for you same as always.
