WHY Martial Arts?

Can you physically defend yourself? Are you capable of defending a loved one if they were being physically assaulted? Most people can’t, or falsely believe they can. In most attacks, a person doesn’t have enough time to draw a weapon – if they’re even carrying. Quickly an attack can become a life or death situation if your attacker realizes you are armed and they start trying to access your weapon. Unless you know how to use your hands and body, you can quickly become a statistic. Toe 2 Toe is the premier martial arts school in Conway Arkansas. Our focus is on guiding you through your journey of building skills and confidence that will transform your life.


At its core, martial arts is a self-defense art. But more than that it promotes a total transformation of mind and body. Practicing martial arts strengthens your mind and body. Your strength and conditioning improve. Your mind becomes sharp. You gain discipline that influences other areas in your life where you’re lacking. In the process, you discover a level of confidence you never imagined possible, and form friendships that last a lifetime.

Having recently completed the Enhanced Concealed Carry License (eCHCL) training at Conway Toe2Toe, I was impressed by the professional and comprehensive nature of the course and its delivery. Conway Toe2Toe's eCHCL training stands out for its detailed curriculum, focusing not only on the practical aspects of firearm handling but also on the crucial legal knowledge necessary for responsible gun ownership. The course, designed to meet and exceed state requirements, provided a thorough understanding of the laws and regulations surrounding enhanced concealed carry licenses. This focus on legalities, combined with practical, hands-on training, makes the eCHCL course at Conway Toe2Toe exceptionally valuable for anyone looking to deepen their understanding of firearm safety and usage. Curtiss Robinson and Spencer Roos have a wealth of knowledge and real-world experience that was evident in every session. Both instructors exhibited a remarkable ability to adapt to various learning styles, ensuring that each participant, regardless of their experience level, received individualized attention and support. This level of instruction is a testament to their dedication to not only imparting knowledge but also fostering a safe and dynamic learning environment. Conway Toe2Toe delivered a high-caliber course that exceeded my expectations, and they are the trusted advisor that you'd want 'watching your six'.

I hired them for a self-defense class using my firearm and they did a great job getting me comfortable with moving for and using my gun, and handling myself in compromising situations. Curtiss always goes through relevant situations and walks through how to handle them. Jennifer and the guys were really helpful and attentive the entire time. I’ll definitely be back!

We hosted our son's 10th birthday at Toe 2 Toe and we had a Naruto theme. From the time we showed up til the time we left they were absolutely amazing! Truly, I was a one woman show at the time I arrived and immediately they pitched in to assist me with the setup! I realized that I had forgotten to purchase drinks and one of the team members literally offered and went to pick up the drinks for me because all of my people were occupied and the party was about to begin shortly. Mr. Joel was the instructor who conducted demonstrations for the group and he pulled out all the stops!! I knew I had asked for Naruto themed demonstrations for the kids to complete but he did so many things I didn't expect, the kids and I were absolutely on cloud 9! It truly is indescribable because you really just had to be there. Tremendous support. Beautiful space. Wonderful people. Toe 2 Toe helped us create an unforgettable experience. 10/10 HIGHLY recommend.

The feeling of self-assurance arising from one’s appreciation of one’s own abilities or skills. In Martial Arts this is knowing what to do, when to do it, and how to utilize self-defense. It also translates into self-esteem at work, in relationships, and in the presence of strangers. It is the core advantage every student gains with hard work and discipline.


The act of using any available means to reduce or escape harm. In Martial Arts this includes, but is not limited to, leaving the area, talking your way out of bad situations, using “stun and run” tactics, employing improvised or modern weapons, and lastly engaging in physical confrontation until help arrives, the enemy is incapacitated, or escape is possible. At Toe2Toe in Conway, AR our students have options and make good choices to avoid conflict. They also have the ability to resolve conflict using techniques and skills learned under our guidance.
