NAI Isaac Brings Elite Martial Arts to the Madison Trace Shopping Center

Richmond, KY  — Elite Martial Arts will open its new location in Richmond in the Madison Trace Shopping Center on Atwood Drive just off the Eastern Bypass across from Kohl’s. The martial arts center will feature over 3,000 square feet of martial arts and fitness training programs from beginner to advanced levels. Programs to include: Karate for Kids, Muay Thai Kickboxing, Krav Maga, Summer, Fall & Spring Break Karate Day Camps, Mixed Martial Arts, Sport Karate, self defense workshops, and Richmond’s first and only licensed Transported After School Karate (TASK) course. TASK is offered across the state of KY and now to Elite Martial Arts-Richmond.

For both children and adults, martial arts training benefits from weight loss, concentration, increased focus, balance, respect for self and others, increased flexibility, stress relief, self discipline, goal setting, and a winning attitude for kids.

Elite Martial Arts-Richmond is owned and under the direction of Master Will Schneider. Master Schneider began training in martial arts in 1987 and is a 1996 World Martial Arts Hall of Fame Inductee and past owner of Elite Martial Arts in London, KY. Schneider is also a former Executive Director/CEO of the London/Laurel County Family YMCA. Schneider said, “I am very excited to bring our award winning martial arts academy to Richmond/Madison County. Elite will be Richmond/Madison County’s first full time family martial arts center with classes Monday through Friday and programs for ages 3 and up. Plus we will be providing our TASK course to families who work until 6 pm and need a quality martial arts center to send their children to after school. We’ll offer beginning Krav Maga and Thai style Kickboxing classes for teens through adults. Our beginner non-full contact Mixed Martial Arts program will focus on fitness and beginner MMA, without the gym/tough guy attitude. Due to the UFC and the local KYFC shows; MMA is very popular now amongst teens and adults and our class will be 100% safe and yes, fun!”

Elite plans many community workshops for the Richmond/Madison County area. Workshops to include: Bully Proof, Kid Safe, Karate for Concentration, Kid Fit, Adult Self Defense, and many more. These workshops are mainly free and available to church groups, elementary-thru high school, and large/small corporations.
