Martial Arts Classes In Mishawaka

Hello! We are Seth and Melanie Birky, and we are the owners of Star Martial Arts. When we began our martial arts journey, the positive impact it had on our lives was remarkable. It was always our dream to someday own our own schools, and when we opened Star Martial Arts, we made a commitment to our community to create an enjoyable environment for students to safely learn self-defense, while building confidence they can carry into their everyday lives. Along with Martial Arts, we have formal education in psychology, education, and business- making Star Martial Arts a school to create independent leaders, not just another gym or dojo.


We teach all of our members to focus on and be present in the moment. In this age of distractions and sensory overload, this is a skill which returns immediate results in all aspects of one's life. Here are some interesting facts about Star Martial Arts:

  • Our members are from all walks of life - we have students, attorneys, doctors, engineers, stay-at-home moms, and law enforcement all training in a fun, team-oriented family environment.
  • We have kids that have been training for years that leave to top colleges and universities in the country, thanks in part to the discipline and focus on hard work they learned through martial arts. This is something we take a great amount of pride in.
  • Our Chief Instructors do martial arts as a full-time career- not just a hobby! That means that they are not only certified and background-checked, but also fully committed to the training, education, and improvement in their field. It is our goal to not only be the most fun school, but the most professional school in the community. Hablamos Espanol!

Our Mission Statement: To challenge students to become independent leaders by maximizing their potential and confidence through success and failure in martial arts; while empowering families to create a structured home environment for their children to thrive.

And while the kids have their fun, our adult program is second to none. From traditional martial arts to more modern self-defense styles, there is something for everyone at Star Martial Arts. If you are looking to burn major calories, learn self-defense moves and get in the best shape of your life, you must come and check out our adult program.

Imagine yourself as a stronger, more confident individual in the best shape of your life. We want to personally invite you to take advantage of our introductory trial offer, and turn that vision into a reality.

It would be a privilege to meet you and your family, and to have them step into the wonderful world of martial arts.
