OUR STORY

 

Hello and Welcome to Bashta’s Martial Arts,

We welcome you and through our web site, we would like to offer to you a sense of who we are. Being from a Traditional back ground, we have continued this philosophy but have done so with a 21st century attitude. With this said we have developed a Martial Arts program with both the traditional and modern day training instituted together. Our Program is blended together to create a second to none experience for all ages. Whether your interest is building your self-esteem and confidence, getting ready to compete, or just wanting to get in great shape, our program is for you.

Our core program consists of training in Traditional style Kata’s (Forms) Self Defense and Fundamental Techniques with progression in Belt Ranks. Next we also offer a separate program to Sport Karate Training (Speed Fighting, Competition Forms and Weapons).  Our weapon program is primarily Bo. You will learn the traditional elements and fundamentals of it.  The training will show you the proper way to handle the weapon, along with learning the many different types of strikes and blocks.

With such a diverse group of programs running at all times, we feel you will truly get a well-rounded workout and will inevitably become a more complete Martial Artist. 

 We at Bashta’s Martial Arts maintain a family atmosphere and we strive to instill in all our student’s timeless values such as respect, and discipline, as well as Honor, Courage, Persistence and Humility. These are in fact part of our tenets that we intertwine into every class.

In our programs you can train alone or with your entire family; but we at BMA hope you will join our “family”. We welcome you to explore our site, and encourage you to stop by for a free lesson and see for yourself, it’s our way of saying: "KICK START THE NEW YOU” 

                                                                      

John Bashta Jr. & John Bashta Sr.
