Prospect Martial Arts prides itself on being the premier martial arts school in Louisville, KY for older children. We teach teens the skills they need to succeed, while they learn to protect themselves. Our system and teaching methods are simply life-transforming, and will help your child to achieve any goal they set.


At Prospect Martial Arts, a good number of our students fall into the category we call our Teen MMA Program. Martial arts school industry standards suggest a lull in the age group from thirteen to seventeen years old. The fact that many martial art schools don't have a large enrollment in this area is proof they are not doing something correctly.

Numerous psychological studies have found that teenagers in the thirteen to seventeen year old range who study martial arts, and specifically Prospect Martial Art’s style of martial arts, have an increased sense of responsibility, are more reluctant to take foolish risks, and have a greater sense of self-esteem. This is why millions of parents are using martial arts to supplement their children’s education. Plus it’s just pure fun!

"Skills that carry into all other aspects of life"

Our Mixed Martial Arts activities channel student’s aggression. Many doctors have prescribed our school because of the positive outlet it provides kids to release their energy. Our martial arts program also teaches teens practical, essential, proven self defense skills. We explain to our students that the moves they learn in class will work, so they do not try them on their family members or neighbors. Put simply, our Teen MMA Program emphasizes complete physical and mental development.

"Why do we soar above the rest,
breaking records everywhere?"

We attribute this to our high-energy, exciting, fun, yet realistic classes, which includes bringing some of the best instruction in the world to our schools. Each one of our teachers is put through a rigorous training course, resulting in some of the best coaches in the world for this age group.

“Arming your child with a sharp mind, responsible reasoning & effective self-defense.”

Since bullying is most prevalent in this age group, we teach the youth in these classes the most effective techniques and strategies they must know to defend themselves if physically attacked.

The best part about the techniques is that they are totally non-violent, and are only applied in response to the physical aggression of a bully, ensuring that the techniques are never used for the wrong reason.

We promise:
  • Outstanding coaching from some of the top Black Belt instructors in the world, personally trained by Sensei Rob McDowell.

  • Proven performance strategies developed by Sensei Rob McDowell and concepts from master success coaches in and out of the martial arts.

  • Unstoppable achievement through specialized planning, and consistent measuring, monitoring and feedback.

  • Rigorous accountability: your instructor will become a friend, mentor and coach who wants and expects the best from you - and who will challenge you to perform at your very best.

Our program is the most well rounded, touching on all the things that a person of this age could want to hear and see.

Reality is our motto. We leave each student walking away with the three "S's" theory; Sweating, Smiling and Striving for more. This metaphor was coined many years ago by one of the best martial arts motivators, and we have been using it ever since with outstanding results!
