Our system is a high energy, safe, fun and effective modern approach to self defense. We blend Muay Thai kickboxing, Krav Maga and Kenpo Karate with some other progressive forms to create classes that will have children excited about their training and get adults in the best shape of their lives.

Our Children’s classes are age specific, high energy and fun. The instructors that lead the classes have all grown up in the martial arts and remember the drills and skills that kept them excited as a child. We focus on developing listening skills, respect, discipline and confidence through our weekly messages and a daily mat chats. Our classroom talks on Bully Defense, Peer Pressure, Stranger Awareness and School Smart skills are teaching children to handle the pressures of growing up in modern times with strong character and safety skills.

Our Adult classes are run with the adult body in mind. We want to make sure you are able to get a great workout in and still be able to function for work, family and friends. Our adult team has proven time and again that you can train hard and safe at the same time. Learning to hit many types of target with different strikes adds variety to a great work out that releases a lot of stress. Blend this with the effectiveness of the Krav Maga self defense system and the traditional side of the martial arts and you’ll see why our adults continue to come back.

Our Krav-Fit program is our version of a cardio kickboxing class. We have blended the basics of the Krav Maga system into our fitness program which gives us far more variety then a normal kickboxing fitness class. Every class will have you developing effective self defense moves while strengthening your entire body and working your cardio vascular system.

Our Master Instructor, Renshi Jeff Groesbeck, has over 30 years experience in the martial arts as a student. He has continued to grow and develop for all of those years. He continues to travel to train with some of the top people in the martial arts to ensure he is bringing some of the best information available in the world into our dojo in Manlius.

Don’t wait, the time to start creating the new you is now!

I have always been interested in the martial arts, but never had the opportunity to pursue any formal training. Shortly after my son began taking classes I decided to join in the fun! This was almost three years ago and training has me in the best shape of my life. It has been very beneficial for my overall well being and a great activity to spend time with my son. Sensei Groesbeck and staff are top notch instructors and provide a positive and fun environment in which to learn and train.

My daughter Jaelyn has been training in martial arts close to five years. She is in great shape, more disciplined and respectful due to the Manlius dojo and staff. Great job on the new website.

My 12 year old daughter and 11 year old son are 1st degree black belts training for their 2nd Degrees. I am 43 years old, in the best shape of my life and ready to test for my 1st degree Black Belt. Impact Martial Arts has changed the life of my children and I for the better in a dramatic way! Modesty, Courtesy, Integrity, Self Control, Perseverance and Indomitable Spirit! These are the creeds instilled in the students who study at the Team Manlius dojo of Impact Martial Arts. The entire teaching staff at the Team Manlius dojo: Sensei Groesbeck, Sensei Button, Deshi Mehmedovic and Mr. McDonald are all AWESOME!! They are all very engaging, professional and inspiring. Not only do they teach marital arts and physical fitness but the curriculum also contains character education and anti-bullying strategies. The environment at the dojo is always positive, fun and inspiriting. Believe me it is a place you will want to be and your kids to be!!!

Our son, Lorenzo, has been training in martial arts with Team Manlius since he was 3 years old. He is now 10 and will be recieving his first degree black belt in 3 weeks. His sense of pride , respect, and confidence is very evident. Impact Martial Arts has become his second home. His mentors, Sensei Groesbeck and Sensei Button, have truly been extraordinary, not only in teaching our son martial arts, but also in instilling a sense of pride in himself that we as parents may not have been able to achieve on our own. Not once in 7 years has our son ever said he does not want to go to a martial arts class. He absolutely loves his dojo and his instructors. By far, placing Lorenzo in this dojo is more than likely the best decision we have ever made as parents. We are very grateful to sensei Groesbeck and sensei Button for all the time and effort they put into their dojo to assure that their students grow up to be successful , respectful, and confident adults.

Both my sons train at the Manlius Impact Martial Arts School. It is a fantastic learning environment, supporting both mental and physical growth. The training program has helped them become more disciplined, respectful and confident. I have the utmost respect for Sensei Groesbeck, Sensei Button and all the staff at the Manlius dojo.
