Star Martial Arts Owners

Hi, We are Seth and Melanie Birky.

WE KNOW HOW DIFFICULT AND CONFUSING
FINDING A MARTIAL ARTS SCHOOL CAN BE.

At STAR Martial Arts, we are committed to making sure that you are educated and comfortable with our programs and systems before enrolling.  This is why we have every student take a free lesson to train and ask questions with our certified instructors before enrolling into a full program. 

We also offer a money-back guarantee on our trial programs (not that you'll need it!), just in case we aren't able to meet your needs.

We Share & teach The Same Values You Teach At Home.

All our programs at STAR Martial Arts have a strong focus on personal development and lifeskill training.  We understand that the biggest fights our students will face, are going to be with their own choices, lifestyle, and decisions.  For this reason, we work with students of all ages and physical ability to grow in their discipline, confidence, and leadership, along with their physical abilities.
