At Quest Martial Arts in Ann Arbor, we teach Wisdom: Putting Knowledge into Action
The most important secret in self-defense has nothing to do with kicking and punching!
The truth is that in Ann Arbor any good martial art school can teach you to kick and punch. It takes a true
martial arts academy to give you the skills you need to create success in every part of your life.
We have helped thousands of students through our
kids martial arts, our family martial arts programs and our adult
self-defense lessons. We are located in Ann Arbor, but we have helped students from
Ypsilanti, Saline and the entire Washtenaw County area.
Karate for kids helps children become stronger, smarter, healthier and more successful, and we’ve been doing that for over 12 years! All this time, we have been in the same
Ann Arbor location helping people make better decisions by developing critical life skills through
martial arts training

We are proud to congratulate Mr. Copeland for
passing his Godan (5th degree) test in Japan! He is now a Shidoshi
(teacher of teachers). Shidoshi Copeland trained with Ninja
Grandmaster Maasaki Hatsumi and the highest ranking Shihan for 26
hours over 9 days.
Below is a video of others taking the sakki test for Godan rank.
NOTE: In this video some people do not pass and it is a painful
experience emotionally AND physically. So if you do not want to see
someone get a bump on the head, do not watch this video. By the way,
Shidoshi Copeland passed the first time!
Tip Of the Week:
If you are meeting resistance become flexible.
Adults AND children tend to "dig in" and become
stubbornly dedicated to their position. they come to see
their solution as the "only" solution. Try this,
whenever you feel yourself becoming tense, consciously
think about a different approach you can use. For
example, if you are trying to give the facts to someone
and they just "aren't getting it" then try asking them
questions about how they think you should do it, what do
they see as an option, where you can both go to get a
different perspective or how they think things might
turn out if you did what you are suggesting. This
"pulls" the thing they are resisting (you) away and
causes them to become "unstuck". Kind of like when you
lean on something that you expect to be rigid and
suddenly it moves. You must re-group and consider new
options. Try it and let us know how it works for you!
Confidence is a cornerstone of
creating the life you want. If your child is to have a
secure and happy life then self-confidence is critical.
3 keys to building your or your
Catch them doing something right. We live in a
society that catches people doing the wrong things,
making mistakes or just not getting it right. Notice
when you, or someone you love does something right.
Celebrate successes. We are so focused on “the next
thing” that we hardly take time to notice when we or
someone we love does something well.
Try more things as a results of success. If you or
your child has had success then go ahead and try
something new. Success can then build upon success.
