How did you choose your school name?
We wanted a name that best reflects who and what we offered. We came up with Prodigy as it is defined as an impressive or outstanding example of a particular quality.
How long have you been teaching?
What is your student creed or mission statement?
We do not just teach Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Muay Thai, and fitness. We spread a culture. A culture of taking care of ourselves where we work together to strengthen and sharpen our mind body and spirit. We sweat, laugh, and strive together. Prodigy Martial Arts is for everyone.
Who or what inspires you?
Being able to help others achieve their goals.
What is something special or unique about your school and/or students?
We specialize in beginners. 95% of our students that walked through our doors were brand new to Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu or Muay Thai. So if you're a beginner, you're in a community that understands what that's like. The facility is super clean, welcoming, and all our students are very encouraging.
What made you choose FUJI Mats for your facility?
Customer service, quality, price, and you had 2" mats available in white.
What is the most rewarding part about working in the martial arts field?
One of the most rewarding things about running a fitness facility is seeing our members succeed.
If you could give one piece of advice to other martial art school owners what would it be?
The gym should be for every BODY! No matter their shape, size, age, or experience level. They should feel safe, comfortable, and motivated. Martial Arts isn't confined to a body shape, weight, or fat percentage. It's all about pushing yourself to be the best YOU.
