LOCATION & REGISTRATION INFORMATION

"itís not a building that makes a good school, but the curriculum and people inside."

Inner Strength Martial Arts is a full martial arts school simply without a private business owned building. Students who have trained at ISMA for years understand this, but some come to ISMA with the intent to stay for a "trial" period and then transfer to another school simply with the notion that a martial arts school must operate out of itís own building to be good. Those students within time, long time ISMA students, and those who have come to ISMA from these other schools will tell you, itís not a building that makes a good school, but the curriculum and people inside. Simply put, never judge a book by its cover.

Some day ISMA may be forced to have our own building, simply because weíre growing rapidly and will one day outgrown our current locations. Until then we hope you view ISMA as a full martial arts school who utilizes a room in anotherís building and not a recreation center class.

ISMA has been operating out of Carpenter Park since August 1997 and Joe Farmer since May 2001. Our policy is to try to support a student's continuous training, but it is crucial that students follow registration procedure as directed by each location. Most of our Carpenter Park location classes fill within minutes after registration is open and some of our Joe Farmer classes meet maximum student participation too. Registration early for all ISMA classes is highly recommended.

If you have any questions please contact us.
