Prepare Your Teen For their Next Stage in Life.

Teenagers are smart and capable – but they can also be their own worst enemies. Between peer pressure, their innate urge to rebel against their parents, and their surging hormones, they can be impossible to be around. But all they need is an outlet for their frustrations – and an opportunity to learn how to be their best.



They rarely Listen and do what their told and if they do they do it in a half-hearted manner

They put their friends and social life ahead of their obligations.

They make poor choices and don't think things through.

I’m Dave Dow, the Owner here at NAK Martial Arts.

I founded NAK Martial Arts with a passion for teaching kids martial arts in a safe environment, and to empower them to learn life-skills that will carry them well into adulthood.

Now, NAK Martial Arts is proud to be one of the FEW schools in Tennessee that requires their instructors to complete a full certification course, prior to being allowed to lead a class.

In fact, that’s why NAK Martial Arts trains some of the highest-class martial arts students in the state (and we’re pretty proud of that fact!)…

That said, it isn’t all about the punching and kicking! Our NAK Martial Arts unique Powerful Character Development program has been proven to help kids learn valuable life skills that can be applied in every aspect of their life to help them achieve success.

While many martial art schools talk about confidence and leadership…our students ACTIVELY complete real life skill activities and drills to prepare them to land the best opportunities available!

Muay Thai is known as the king of the ring. It has proven itself for hundreds of years in kickboxing-style competitions and also in the last few years in MMA (mixed martial arts like the UFC and One Fighting Championships) and if it can teach people to deal with other trained fighters; your teen will easily be able to handle the local bully. Whereas karate and similar arts spend a lot of time on forms; pre-arranged dance-like choreographed sequences that have very little to do with fighting skills or self-defense.
