At The Cave Academy our primary goal is to provide the mental and physical benefits of high quality Martial Arts classes to the greater Pacifica area. The practice of martial arts promotes the development of a strong character, critical thinking skills, and overall health and wellness; it is the goal of our organization to provide the opportunity for students to develop these qualities in a safe, affordable, family oriented environment.
The material covered will develop the student’s ability to comprehend subject matter in an organized manner. By putting their techniques and strategies to use in a live situation, the student will develop an authentic sense of what they can and can’t do. By learning to solve problems through critical self-analysis and consistent practice, they will attain the tools necessary to accomplish their goals on and off of the mat. This process develops real confidence in their ability to calculate a solution to a problem and implement it through disciplined hard work. It is our sincere hope and past experience that this confidence is carried into the personal, educational, and professional lives of our students.
