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.

I just completed the enhanced carry class taught by Curtis and I have to say by far one of the best classes I have ever attended. I have over 30 years as a trainer which give me a little insight as to a quality instructor. Curtis has an excellent delivery system to make it very easy to understand, he gives real life examples to bring te point home. Curtis's background and experience makes home a perfect person to teach this class. I would not hesitate to take any class he teaches.

Toe2Toe taught a self defense class to our church youth camp over zoom. It was very informative, interesting and engaging for the kids even through video. The youth came away knowing how to avoid bad situations when possible and how to protect themselves physically if they ever need to. They were able to teach several principles and techniques in our short 30 minute class.

My daughter and I both had the opportunity to take a class on self defense and learned a tremendous amount. This stemmed from how to protect ourselves, modeling moves, statistics, tools to use, scenarios to practice in, and great instructors!

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.
