My son has been coming to Impact Martial arts for about 2 months now and loves it. This is a place for him to focus, learn, make new friends and grow! Everyone here is friendly, almost feels like a little family. It's great to see everyone working together and helping, especially the older belts. They step right in and help out with moves when a child may seem confused.

My daughter had her first class there on Wednesday and they welcomed her with opening arms and made her feel very comfortable... she had a great time and can not wait to go back Saturday... This has been all she talks about ever since she came home that day... it’s great that they have that sort of impact on such young people...

Senseis Nolan and Bidwell and the entire staff at Impact Martial Arts Dewitt are amazing teachers and tremendous with all of their students from the young beginners to their advanced adults. The manner in which they teach the kids, not only about karate, but about life is incredible. I highly recommend Impact Martial Arts Dewitt for anyone of any age. Thank you for all you do. Keep up the great work.

My family went to TeamDewitt DOJO for years. Our daughter Abby got her black belt here. Support and personal attention you get here is remarkable. Sensei Nolan address every kid by name and provides support in all aspects of kids development. Encourages kids to talk about their school achievements, asks kids to come up with goals as a apart of wholesome experience. My kid, Abby, couldn't wait to show her grades and loved to write about her goals. When it is time for black belt testing, the support you get here is awesome. It is not just Sensei Nolan, entire DOJO's kids, parents cheer your kid to complete various tasks. I have seen some parents volunteer as running coaches for kids. Your kid will also get an opportunity to be a coach to other kids, which most certainly develops leadership skills.

A wonderful group of people who love their job and are amazing with kids.
We tried out a couple other dojo’s before joining Impact Dewitt. So happy with our experience with them... even a year and a half later!

I've been at Impact Dewitt for a few months now and I can't say enough good things about it. The lessons are fun and challenging and the class sizes are usually pretty small which allows for very individualized instruction. The instructors are extremely knowledgeable and welcoming to newcomers of any skill level. I love both the workout and the self-defense skills I am learning every week! If you are considering trying Krav Maga I highly recommend going to Impact Dewitt!

Eight years ago, we needed to get our 9 year old son (who was not into team sports) off electronics. Thank goodness we found Impact Martial Arts!! It provided him with structure in a positive learning environment that taught him so much more than self defense!! He learned resilience, focus, dedication, integrity...and many great life lessons leading up to earning his black belt. Master Nolan and his team truly love what they do and it shows in their dedicated spirit. After 8 years of continued training and now a 2nd degree black belt, I can honestly say that Impact MA of Dewitt helped raise my son to be the amazing young adult that he is today!! And that's money well spent!!

Our 11 yr old daughter had her first class roughly 3 months ago. Master Nolan and the Impact team have made her feel really comfortable. We are really happy along with the technical defensive skills she is learning...they are teaching and reinforcing valuable life learning skills. She went from not being sure if karate was for her and just going through the motions to get by...to asking us to take her to karate extra days during the week and being vocal and participating in class! She talks about karate a lot at home, it's been great to see her develop a genuine interest in it!

Supercharge Yourself!

Let’s face it….Ferris Bueller was right.  The adolescent idol for so many of us said that life moves pretty fast and we dismissed it as mere hyperbole.

Life DOES move fast and most people I talk to are constantly searching for ways to get more done, feel better and perform at a peak level.  So how do you SUPERCHARGE yourself?

Well for starters, take time to unplug.  It seems counterintuitive, but taking time for you will actually make you FAR more productive.  The much heralded “hustle” is actually not sustainable in the long-term and the Law of Diminishing Returns does apply.  Plus, if you are dead by the time you are 50….was that really worth hustling towards?

So what else?  Here is a list of other ways to SUPERCHARGE yourself….sustainably.

  • Sleep – Quality sleep will have a HUGE effect on your performance.  That includes work , fitness, family, etc.  Poor sleep is also a very difficult habit to break.  For most people, quality sleep means 7-9 hours uninterrupted.  Eliminate distractions (phone, dog, light coming through windows) and watch how much better you feel.
  • Systems vs. Goals – Think of systems as behaviors and goals as outcomes for many people.  A system would be committing to prepping meals each week….a typical goal for people is losing an arbitrary amount of weight, say 20 lbs.  If you don’t lose 20 lbs, you fail, plus it is hard to stick to when it is a number out in the future.  A system like prepping your meals is far easier to control and succeed with.  It will also likely help you achieve that outcome goal that you used to set.
  • Eat to Fuel – Approach eating as a way to fuel your body for performance.  That slice of pizza may be convenient or distract you momentarily from your stress, but will it fuel you to completely dominate your day?  Without turning this into a nutrition blog…watch a few things closer.  How is your water intake?  How many processed carbs are you eating?  How many bad choices are you making based on impulse?  What does your intake of leafy greens and low carb veggies look like?  Most people THINK they eat clean and healthy…but are shocked when they start to track their nutrition closer.
  • Habits we Train are Habits we Gain – Get honest with what your good habits and bad habits are.  Utilize reminders in your phone and helpful apps to keep you on course.  There are apps for eating healthy, tracking sleep…there is even an app that grows a tree for you as your phone sits idle.  The less you check it…the bigger your tree grows.  It is called Forest.  When you do stray off course….and you will, analyze WHY and HOW you can prevent it the next time.
  • Be Present – Take time each day to get in tune with yourself.  What is your stress level?  Who helps it and who hinders it?  How rushed and frantic do you feel?  What can be done to calm yourself and/or eliminate toxic people?  Taking those moments will pay off tenfold.  And most people do not do it nearly enough, including me!

Zig Ziglar once said, “Your thinking today determines your performance today.”  The beauty of the above tips is that not only will they supercharge your performance, they will supercharge your life.

Yours in progress,

Master Jason Nolan
