Rise Martial Arts continues to challenge Jack while building confidence and teaching discipline.
Rise Martial Arts has allowed Sam to have a way to explore his own abilities. As our oldest we are always learning with him, and having an outlet to learn along side him is extremely helpful. Rise is the family you didn't know you were already apart of.

Being a black belt, you are now leading by example as a to the younger belts below you.

You still learn and make mistakes and that is part of growth no matter your age or rank and skill level.

Mats came in for the Fenton location 🙌🏻

Don't lie… we've all done it! 🤣


Thank you so much to Mr Coglianese and Mrs Hogan from Region ATA for driving from Indiana to come and teach some of our students all about some tricks in .... WE HAD A BLAST this weekend 💥👊💪

Growing relationships like this in our martial arts community gives our students opportunities to improve and grow in their techniques and skills and learning from other instructors from different areas.

It also gives us, as school owners and higher ranks, a chance to continue to build our relationship and learn from each other as well whether that is in physical training or professional training.

Also....HAPPY BIRTHDAY MR COGLIANESE!🎉🎉 Ms Kylie will send you another whoopee cushion😉


Like Master Lee says, 'If it doesn't challenge you, it doesn't change you'


Our family is proud to announce Rise MA's SECOND LOCATION coming soon to Fenton, MO!!❤️❤️💪💪👊👊

We are so excited to share this NEW! announcement with you all! Stay tuned.....👀 👀 👀


Listen to this 👊👊💪💪 from our MAK and Tigers class tonight!!

A common question that we get asked a lot is "What style of martial arts do you teach?"

Although our organization and basics are Taekwondo, our classes are taught with a mix of martial arts in mind from standing techniques to ground defenses.

Call us TODAY at 636-226-6599 to see, for yourself, what all the hype is about at Rise!!


This cycle we will be discussing COMMUNICATION!

There are many different ways that we communicate with those around us and here are some great pointers we will be discussing in more detail over the next few months:







Don't miss out on developing better communication for your child and call us at 636-226-6599 to get your first two one-on-one lessons FREE!


We're so excited to be bringing this event back at Rise!! We look forward to seeing some local store supporters as well as friends coming in with our students for a fun night of class and a for afterwards😉


When you see something cool happening in a movie or in a fight scene, it's easy to say that it looks easy or that anyone can do it!

And although movies are GREAT, in reality, martial arts is difficult! This is because it takes years (YEARS!) of dedication, consistency, and practice/application. It takes discipline (and encouragement!) to push through those times when quitting seems a lot easier than to face what'schallenging you. But, if you can push through those rocky times (and there will be a time), your mindset starts to change and you'll be able to understand and navigate through ANYTHING that you'll face.....and come out of it stronger! 🧠💪



Martial arts is a journey. The path to Black Belt is NEVER flat and always has twists and turns along the way that block us from our goal. But that's life...

If it doesn't challenge you, it doesn't change you. And the things that challenge you are the things that mean the most or will impact you the most to change. Change happens when you are UNCOMFORTABLE.

A Black Belt is a white belt who never gave up, who pushed passed those obstacles, who accepted the uncomfortable moments and always continued to learn something new to improve themselves in skill and in life.


Rise MA had a great testing week last week!! We look forward to seeing everyone in classes tonight for results!!


Good luck to all of our students testing for a new belt👊💪🥋


Happy Grandparents Day to all of our amazing Rise grandparents!

They always step up and help out in getting the kids where they need to go and are cheering along beside the family in watching their grandchild/ren grow in their martial arts journey. Thank you so much for your support❤️💪


We're pretty sure this is EXACTLY the scene that plays through Master Lee's mind!!

We CANNOT say this enough!!! 🤦‍♀️🤣


When you come into Rise, you can find Ms Kylie behind the desk! She's always the one that responds with "Livin' the Dream" when asked how her day is going!! She is our school's IT person and handles our social media pages and website.

You can find her coaching some of our younger team sparring teams at tournaments, judging, or competing herself.


We hope everyone enjoys their extended holiday weekend and is relaxing with their families !

Rise MA will be CLOSED today! We will resume classes tomorrow!


When we find a student that possesses the qualities of a great leader and we know that they have what it takes to rise above our Champion program, they are nominated into our ATA Legacy program!

No matter if their goal is to become a lawyer, doctor, firefighter, entrepreneur, tradesman, professor, or the next generation of martial arts instructors, this program is perfect to plant the seeds of leadership qualities needed to create an impressive LEGACY!!

We are so glad to be growing our team with these amazing kids, teens, and adults ❤️❤️


Take a look inside at Rise MA!

Good job, Renee, on the cheesecake!!! It looks delicious 😋



All parents want their children to learn to be disciplined. Whether it's in academics or in life. "Make your bed!", "Brush your teeth!", "Do your homework!"
👉👉"Did you make an appointment to see the doctor?" (Yes...even as we're grown, our mothers still ask us questions!!!)

At Rise MA, something as simple as keeping your gear and shoes in your parking spot shows . Consistency in this repetitive habit can help build and create better habits elsewhere.

What ways do your kids show discipline? Or how would you like them to show more?


Respect, Integrity, Service, and Excellence; that's the RISE way!
Today's sponsor highlight is brought to you by RISE Martial Arts. Rise is a family-owned business in Des Peres and they knew they just HAD to sponsor The Avery Outhouse as soon as they heard about it; they've got kids of their own so they understand the *unique appeal* of this particular game.😉

Rise Martial Arts prides themselves on teaching traditional techniques in a modern and practical way, while being in a safe, positive, energetic and FUN environment. With a large space and an experienced team of black belt teachers & assistants (multiple teachers for each class), they're able to accommodate large classes without sacrificing individual attention to each student. Whether you're 4 or 44, there are options for all ages to learn discipline while applying the principles of martial arts to daily life situations.

We can't thank RISE Martials Arts enough for their support of Avery, for being a leader in the community, and for helping guide our children through their example.

Want to know a secret to having a great academic year?

Developing confidence can help your child thrive in both school and life. With our kids programs, we teach our students to speak up and use a confident voice, look people in the eye when communicating and listening, and standing/walking up straight and not being hunched over.

Nothing screams LEADER more than having that confidence in what you are doing and what you can do.

🚨Get started TODAY and SAVE $$ on your first MONTH of Classes! 🚨


Each school year always brings new challenges. It's important that your children are able to navigate through, not only the easy tasks, but also how to deal with tasks that can be more frustrating.

Rise MA is committed to helping your child ACHIEVE their GOALS and how to calmly tackle obstacles and turn them into wins💪

Call us TODAY at 636-226-6599 and schedule your first two lessons on us!


It's hard to decide .....but which are YOU?!


The great thing about martial arts is that EVERYONE can do it! No matter if you've been working out for years or this is your first physical activity....YOU CAN DO IT!

Let Rise MA help you reach the physical level you want to be at!
