At Inner Strength Martial Arts in Superior, Wisconsin, we offer Gracie Jiu-Jitsu, Muay Thai Kickboxing, American Karate, and Women’s Self-Defense classes structured to help you achieve your goals, help you get in better shape, and teach you how to defend yourself in a life or death situation.

Through a dedicated, systematic, and intensive martial arts program, Inner Strength Martial Arts produces the incentive to become a more confident individual both physical and mental regardless of age or sex. These programs offered at Inner Strength Martial Arts will help you become a better student in school, a more focused individual in the workplace, and teach you how to be a leader in society.

Inner Strength Martial Arts is a black belt school, a family school, a school that everybody can be proud to be a part of. Our goal is to offer a family friendly environment where everybody can be part of a successful team, and work together to help each other achieve their goals and their dreams.

Here at Inner Strength Martial Arts we strive for each and every student to learn what it means to be loyal, respectful, trustworthy, dependable, and honorable. The martial arts are more than learning how to defend yourself; it makes you into a special kind of person that is difficult to find in today’s society. Here at Inner Strength Martial Arts everybody is going to learn to work as a team, and to be there for one another as a family.

Our programs do not guarantee these benefits unless the student can take his/her training seriously and attend a minimum of two lessons per week, applies what he/she learns in class and completes the program; obviously the more that the student can attend class the better, but one must be careful not to get burned out. The purpose of this manual is to reinforce the techniques taught by a qualified instructor, and should never be used as a substitute for qualified instruction.

In our Little Billies Program we will teach the importance of education, the importance of teamwork, and important life skills that will help mold them into a successful citizen in our community. The kids program at Inner Strength Martial Arts is the best program in the Twin Ports area, because they are taught self-esteem, self-control, discipline, and how to be respectful to all adults and to all of their peers. In every single class the child will learn self-defense, play a fun game, and sit down in a group session focusing on an important life skill; focusing on a different topic each week. Topics include stranger danger, say no to drugs, importance of please and thank you, importance of yes sir and no sir, and how to show respect. These are just a few of the topics that are discussed in the Little Billies Program.

Everything taught at Inner Strength Martial Arts is taught to be used strictly for self-defense purposes ONLY. Everything learned at Inner Strength Martial Arts should be practiced at the martial arts school or at home in a fun learning environment with mom, dad, or significant other in helping the technique get better; the more that you practice the better that your technique will get. It should not be practiced or performed at work, at school, or in the community unless your life is in danger, and you can’t get away for help. Self-control is another thing that will be focused on at Inner Strength Martial Arts. The longer that you train in the martial arts the more self-control you will develop. You will learn it is easier to walk away from an altercation than engage in one.

    I know that the instructor thinks that he is the best grappler in the Duluth/Superior area, but this is just not true. I have been to all the gyms in the area and he will not train with his students. He claims to have a brown belt in BJJ but will not roll to save his life.

    Very Poor!!!

  • Jason says:

    This is an amazing school led by a Cleber Jiu-Jitsu Brown Belt. I was there the day the instructor got promoted. I have been to many gyms and many of them are great. ISMA is just another school in the area that can benefit the area. The instructor has competed all over the USA and is spreading the knowledge to other parts of MN and WI. I recommend this school regardless of what the haters say

  • Nick says:

    Amazing facility with a lot of talented competitors, coaches, and fighters. This is a family school that offers many great martial arts choices. The instructor works very hard to improve everybody’s skills and we constantly have people from all over the USA stopping in to train with us. There are a lot of great gyms in this area and Inner Strength is one of them. This place has saved my life, gave me something to strive for, and im honored to have found Rob as a coach and Inner Strength as my new family
