Welcome to Blue Life Karate & Kickboxing!

Hi everyone! My name is Shihan Durand Howard, and I’m extremely very PROUD that hundreds of families all over the Maplewood area are singing the praises of our programs and telling their friends and neighbors how much of a positive impact it’s having on their lives. (You can see some of these stories for yourself on the “Reviews” page!)

Our students are surprised by how easy it is to get started, and delighted that they don’t have to be “already in great shape” to truly enjoy their new classes. Parents who enroll their children are amazed at how patient and genuine we are, and how quickly their child makes observable improvements in their level of focus and confidence!

But the best way to see if our program would be a good fit for you or someone in your family is to try it for yourself.

Get started now with one of our WEB SPECIALS and find out how you can be healthier, happier, and more confident with Blue Life Karate & Kickboxing training!

Physical and Mental Development

Our members tell us that our school is more of an institution of self-improvement, physically and mentally, rather than just a gym or some “activity.” It feels like a family. We concentrate on building the whole person: Physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually, and socially.

I pride myself on helping our adult members safely build lean muscle, quickly burn fat, gain flexibility, and relieve stress in a FUN, positive, and injury-free environment!

And for the children, parents all over the Maplewood area give my martial arts classes credit for increasing their child’s ability to focus in school and at home, building their self-esteem, and igniting a passion for self- improvement they never would have expected.

Blue Life Karate & Kickboxing is So Much More than “Kicking & Punching”

The martial arts are not “just” about self-defense!

In reality, the physical “kicking and punching” are really just tools that I use to teach the more important, and MUCH more valuable lessons about yourself and life.

By practicing physical self-defense skills, you will follow the proven path for successful living based on discipline, focus, and perseverance.

Take us up on our WEB SPECIAL offer, and see the benefits of my Maplewood martial arts program for yourself!

"AN INCREDIBLE LEARNING EXPERIENCE..."
“An incredible learning experience awaits children and adults at Blue Life Karate. My sons have been attending for a combined 13 years. As a result, they’ve gained tremendous discipline and the techniques of self-defense.The program provides a solid foundation for children that face bullying challenges, which is so pervasive today. I’ve personally witnessed children with behavioral problems reverse course and advance to levels their parents thought were unattainable.”

People believe that martial arts training is just another extra curricular activity, that is a misconception. There is not any program that is going to give you the benefits that you receive from martial arts training. Many people think the martial arts are just about fighting, the truth is that the physical “kicking and punching” are really just the tools that I use to teach the more important, and MUCH more valuable lessons about yourself.
