This place is great! My son has learned so much in such a short amount of time! It’s their attention to detail and knowledge that makes this training outstanding. My son’s confidence has increased as quickly as his skill. His skillful ability to protect himself from larger opponents, both in size and height, is a credit to the training at Gracie Jiu-Jitsu in Chandler. In addition, I would strongly recommend this type of detailed training to young ladies as the mean to protect themselves from would be attackers.

Our kids can't get enough. I like how families are welcome to stay and watch. Staff is amazing. High energy. And helpful. Ashley is the best. Its cool how they put together events that celebrate their achievements. And you can tell they enjoy what they do for our kiddos!

I started taking my son to this place since it was on Groupon. So my expectations were not too high nor I knew what I was trying to get out of it. The orientation given by Ashley helped me understand Martial arts and it’s need. The first few classes led by Matt and Ashley were so phenomenal that I enrolled by son permanently. I have been so happy about my decision on this. My son loves taking these classes. I have seen a huge change in my 6 year old confidence and endurance. The classes also tries to make families part of the learning and goes beyond just Martial arts since it talks about Ninja core values like self discipline, Focus and Respect etc which are critical to anyone’s life. I would encourage anyone at any age group to take a class with Matt and Ashley and I can bet that you are going to love it and learn from it.

Our son has loved training here for the past several months. The black belts who lead the beginners classes are knowledgeable and professional, and they're also great with kids. The training program is designed to address not only physical fitness and self-defense, but also aspects of character, such as good manners and citizenship. Everyone at QMA is enthusiastic, courteous, and helpful, and we've found the experience of working with them to be a very positive influence on our 10-year-old. Highly recommended!

My son and husband have been training at QMAC for years and love it. The instructors are amazing and truly care about each child's success, both on and off the mats. They learn life skills as well as martial arts, and they have a lot of fun!

Great atmosphere, good workout. The JiuJitsu has been great but the people at Phoenix Quest have been even greater!

I've been going for two years. I've tried several different martial arts schools. I feel like this one has practical self defense, a welcoming and family oriented atmosphere and high quality training for a very realistic price.

I always feel welcome.

I have been training in To Shin Do since 2003, and I couldn't be happier. This art has brought a substantial amount of confidence to me in my daily life, and I couldn't be happier. I am able to use this art on a daily basis with the situational awareness it has shown me in addition to being able to read body language of people I interact with. I can't help but express how much of a positive impact this has had on my life. I couldn't be happier calling the Quest Martial Arts Chandler my home away from home.

I have been coming to the PQC for a little over 2 yrs now. And this is by far the best Martial arts class i have ever attended, From the first day I walked in the door i was learning real techniques i could use. I didn't have to go home and practice Kata patterns over & over again. I learned real techniques that i could use right away! I didn't have to wait months to finally learn something. So i signed up both of my kids right away and they love it. They say that they feel like thay can really defend themselves and have more confidence. Thank you again for everything PQC!

Quest Martial Arts Chandler is a supportive environment for learning realistic self-defense. I have trained there for more than two years, after training in a dojo in Florida for eight, and seeing family members train with varying degrees of effectiveness in four styles of martial arts over more than 50 years of collective experience.

Without a doubt, I can assure fellow students that the training is practical, geared to all ages, positive and supportive, and responsive to individual needs. We do not spar for competition; we learn effective techniques that will not be hampered by having trained for artificial rules that attackers will never follow. (This is not to say that sparring is bad; it's just not training for street attacks.)

The staff at Quest Martial Arts are skilled at both techniques and in teaching in a positive manner. Under their teaching, I have seen adolescent girls grow in assertiveness and adults of all physical conditions improve their abilities and confidence.

The Gracie classes are great, the instructor is nice, and the students are the best training partners. I feel welcome every time I come in.

Let yourself (or your kids) BE BORED!

Be bored. Yes. Bored. I said it.

It is very easy to be entertained these days. We have smart phones, tablets, portable laptops, TVs on gas stations pumps….it is actually very difficult to truly be bored without an effort of will.

I know I often find myself pulling out my phone to check Facebook, email or whatever even when I KNOW I have no signal and I start to get bored.

How about you? Can you just stand around and be, or do you grab for the device as well?

The problem is, the more constantly entertained we have to be, the less our brain is required to actually work. Just like with our other body parts, if you don’t use it, you lose it.

Your brain can actually become weak. You will likely find yourself forgetting things. You will discover when forced to focus, your mind wanders.

I heard recently that even the presence of your phone can distract you away from an intellectual task EVEN if it is turned off.

You may instinctually glance towards it expecting to see a new message, text or other instant gratification notification. The same way I check it even when there is no signal.


 


I remember the last time I broke a phone and had to wait a full weekend for the replacement. I would continually go to check it for something. Movie times…where is my phone. Directions to a restaurant…where is my phone. Call my mom. Oops…I actually don’t KNOW her number.

This over dependence on this technology is allowing us to dismiss our own natural abilities.

It  is making us weaker even as it makes us feel like we have more.
