-Tour Our Facility-
Resolute Martial arts operates out of a 5,000 square foot facility custom designed to offer you and your family the best experience. The parking lot is easy to access and offers plenty of parking spaces. If you’re not quite sure where we are located, we are on Commons Drive, right behind the Wal-Mart shopping center. Our suite is located on the left side of the center.
We stock our own Pro-Shop so you don’t have to look far to get the best training equipment for your classes or when you want to train at home. If we don’t have it in stock for you, most orders arrive within a week. And don’t worry, all sharp objects are kept way out of reach. 🙂 We also offer healthy snacks and drink options as living a healthy lifestyle is part of our DNA. Check in with the Pro-Shop every week as there is always something to get excited about.
One you get inside you will notice our large training mat, and a few other rooms. Besides the obvious training mat area where 95% of the classes take place we also offer Destin’s Award Winning After School Pick-Up Program where students are picked up from their school and transported back to Resolute Martial Arts. We provide homework and reading time along with other structured activities to make sure they are never bored after school again. These awesome students have their own rooms away from the traffic of the rest of the school.
