Guardian Way Martial Arts and Fitness BBB Business Review


Toddlers and young children are introduced to martial arts while enhancing coordination, stamina, listening skills, and behavior in a safe and fun environment.


Children ages 6 through 9 are instructed in martial arts while cultivating character through perseverance and diligent study. Self-Discipline, respect for others, courtesy, integrity, and the emphasis on peaceful and thoughtful living will also be taught in these classes.


Students ages 10 through 13 receive martial arts instruction in addition to character building lessons. Further cultivation of self discipline, peaceful practices and thoughtful living will produce beneficial results in their future families and careers as well as the world around them.


Students from beginner to advanced will receive skill appropriate instruction in martial arts as well as beneficial insights into self-healing, self-discipline and peaceful and meaningful living which will have a profound impact in their day-to-day lives.

Special Classes


In our Family Class, parents and children are invited to participate together. Learning martial arts as a family can provide a long-lasting bond through shared experience.


Description coming soon.


Every Friday, students will be able to take the training they have experienced throughout the week and translate it into real-time sparring sessions with other students under the careful supervision of Master Christopher Van Mieghem and other staff members. Each age group will be able to spar at their regularly scheduled class time. Protective gear is provided at the school and can also can be purchased from our store.


On selected Saturdays, students who regularly exhibit exemplary behavior and leadership qualities will receive an invitation to attend our leadership seminars where they will receive the training to become Junior leaders.
Junior leaders help oversee other students and assist in their instruction. Upon graduation from the program, students will receive a certificate of completion and a patch indicating their Junior Leader status. After this, subsequent attendance in the Leadership Seminar would result in promotion to Assistant Instructor and further responsibilities.


On selected Saturdays, students who show proficiency in a variety of skills such as tumbling, weapons, forms, and kicking/striking demonstrations can join our Demo Team. The Demo Team performs at street festivals, fairs, schools, and other special events to promote the school.

Great new location! My Son AK is a student of Master Chris, and he attends three days a week for multiple sessions. Master Chris and his staff have welcomed AK into their family and AK loves being the best person he can and best student possible for Master Chris. Master Chris instills confidence in my soon to be 10 year old and shows him that there is nothing he can’t do. As a parent…. I am just in awe of the advances he is making and the little man that he is becoming. Signing him up for Taekwondo was the best thing I did as a parent as far as extracurricular, I just wish…. he (could) spend 8 hours a day for five weeks under Master Chris’s instruction!

New ownership of Guardian Way’s has a level of passion and enthusiasm for the community they serve through group classes and the after school program for kids. Highly recommend trying a class!

Absolutely the best Taekwondo Place ever….If I could give Guardian Way 10 stars, I would!…Master Chris is a pro that teaches with kindness and support…The customer service is beyond amazing, the kindness and support in their teaching style is beyond words, and the excitement and encouragement from all staff is real/honest. I trust my son is getting the best education and lifelong skills from this small business…My son went to bed tonight saying, ‘I feel proud of myself and all I have accomplished.’ That’s thanks to an amazing Master Chris and a fantastic school… Instructors like this are the ones who support and drive kids to be successful!
