Maloney Family

Our Philosophy

At Maloney's Martial Arts, we believe mental and emotional strength come first because understanding and using these skills can usually help avoid the need for physical self-defense. Mental and emotional self-defense can be used on a daily basis to deal with negative thoughts and the feelings that come from those thoughts.

Mental Defense

Our mental defense techniques begin with preventive defense by always respecting yourself and others. We also teach you to be aware of where you place your attention, for what captures your attention controls your life. In addition, we help you to avoid uncontrolled thoughts of frustration, fear, or anger. Defense and prevention starts with controlling ourselves on a mental level, controlling our attention, controlling our thoughts, and how we respond to them.

Awareness and Respect

Through awareness and respect, we always try to avoid the need to resort to physical defense. We teach you that you can avoid most undesirable consequences and set up the desirable consequences you seek by focusing on being aware of the following:

Your Attention | Your Thoughts | Your Feelings | Your Words | Your Tone Of Voice When Speaking To Others | Your Actions


Our Principles

There are several principles we teach to all of our students from children to adults. These principles of our martial arts include the following:
