More than just karate and taekwondo—become a well-rounded person at Cutting Edge

At Cutting Edge, we care about our students and the skills they develop while under our instruction. Studying martial arts is about more than just karate and taekwondo. It’s about focus. It’s about discipline. It’s about empowering you to make a change. It’s about being a better person every time you step off the mat. On the surface, we teach kids and adults weapons-handling, dexterity, coordination, and physical strength. But Cutting Edge Martial Arts focuses just as much on what lies beneath the surface.

  • We care about developing and encouraging well-rounded people who have the emotional stability, determination, confidence, and focus to be successful on and off the mat. We help students find and refine those internal qualities that will benefit them throughout their lives regardless of their engagement in martial arts and taekwondo. Whether you are a world-class taekwondo black belt or a casual martial artist or somewhere in between, these are skills that are important to everyone.

Kids’ Martial Arts

Our primary goals when it comes to kids martial are to help kids become stronger-physically, mentally, and emotionally. With us, your children will learn to be confident, self-assured, and grow in a comfortable and compassionate environment.

  • General training classes: Throughout the week, these general training courses focus on strengthening your core and giving you a wide variety of full-body workouts.

Our general training classes meet several nights a week at our Bozeman and Big Sky martial arts schools.
  • Tai Chi classes: In these classes, be prepared to gain awareness of your surroundings.

  • Kung Fu: This free course for men and women is about practical street defense. In just a few classes you’ll learn how to effortlessly take control of a situation regardless of your size, weight, age, or gender. Kung Fu San Soo is the perfect class for non-martial artists who don’t want to commit to ongoing study. It’s also great fun! Kung Fu Master Mark Colby teaches this class.
