It feels great to get to work after such an exciting weekend! This week we start working towards the next test for children and teens! Testing is Friday Oct 6. Reminder, not everyone makes every test, but get that training in and see what you can accomplish.

Adult group is picking up some steam too, as we start looking at throw veriations and guard work. Everyone is working and having fun at Lion’s Way!


Friday! Reminder for everyone playing paintball this Saturday:

If you are carpooling, we leave from the school promptly at 8:06 am! Don’t be late, or you’ll be walking – lol. If you need an extra preparation list, please stop in to the school and pick one up. Rain or shine, it’s going to be a fantastic time!


Rainy Wednesdays are fine, as long as you’re training inside! Next regular test for teens and children is fast approaching! Friday Oct 6 is the testing day. Don’t wait until the last minute to prepare.

Paintball this Saturday! Looks like a cloudy day and maybe some light rain. We play rain or shine, so be ready to go! Here’s a look back at our group from 2021!


Welcome to another great week! We have our normal training for children, teens, and adults! Check out those classes. This weekend, Saturday Sept. 23, we’ll have our annual paintball games! Open to the adults, teens and advanced kids’ classes, this yearly event is one of our favorites! Let’s get this week going!


With everything that happened at the end of last week, going into this week has been a little hectic. Our fabulous students, friends and family have a made great work of it however. We thank everyone for the care and consideration you have expressed to us. We are eternally humbled and grateful. We have such a fantastic team here at Lion’s Way Martial Arts!

Training had been going fabulous! Now that school is in full swing kids , teens, and even some adults are finding their grove. Getting back on a set schedule and being consistent is the best thing when training martial arts. Keep up the great work!

Let’s keep pushing!


Monday. While we are gearing up to tackle another week of great training, lets take a moment to remember this inauspicious day. A moment of remembrance for the 9-11 attacks and a moment to remember that we are all one people. Be better towards each other and build a better tomorrow.


Friday – Short take: We are OPEN tonight, however you may notice a small boarded window when you come in. As seems to be the sign of the times, Lion’s Way was broken into last night.

Longer take: Got a call early this morning (Friday) that there was damage to the school. Upon arriving, I saw that one of the small windows in front had been broken in. They had moved a trash can in order to hide their work. They also broke into the back office, obviously looking for a quick money grab. Now, we don’t keep cash at the school. I think there was $20 in one-dollar bills we use for change. Also, they took an inexpensive Chromebook that we used to sign up new students. While the damage to the window and doors will still mount to over a thousand dollars, nothing else was damaged.

We have cleaned everything up, and we are having everything fixed. The school is OPEN, SAFE and functioning. In these kinds of situation we are actually more worried about the damage a potential intruder might cause. Having to fix doors and windows, while frustrating and costly, does not stop us from doing what we love. Classes are up and running and we continue to provide the best martial arts that Kent, WA has to offer.

Thank you for your support!
