Excitement at the Mount Shasta Martial Arts Program, founded in 2001, is at an all-time high celebrating its ongoing activity program at a new, convenient location and giving away free uniforms to individuals that sign up for three months in advance.

“MSMAP offers a unique blend of the old and the new by combining traditional martial arts values like discipline, defense, and respect with a modern and dynamic training program,” says head instructor Chuck Buhs.

“We provide a proven creative outlet for boys and girls seeking a positive environment developing physical and social skills,” adds Buhs. “Educators and participants alike see the results firsthand and praise our simple mission to help people make decisions based on intelligence and confidence rather than fear and ignorance. Just call us South County’s first-stop for anti-bully strategies.”

Following an impressive opening demonstration at ShastaYama in August, MSMAP participated in a weeklong lunchtime activity program at Mount Shasta Elementary in September and will be in action for an exciting martial arts demonstration at Castle Rock for an all-school assembly next month.

Founding instructor Dr. Peter Halt emphasizes, “MSMAP is not just for kids—it provides separate training sessions for teens and adults also.” Older participants looking for that additional edge, work one-on-one with Buhs, a two-time yongmudo champion (2006, 2010) and Best Male Competitor in 2010.

According to Buhs, “Martial arts training is an action philosophy — deeds trump talking. Our program affirms the benefits of an active lifestyle tempered by a humble spirit to achieve really big things.”

“But, don”t take our word for it,” Buhs adds with a grin. “Come in, speak with our participants, and take advantage of our no-risk two-week free trial.”
