Why Become a Student at Vieira Martial Arts?


A better working body; a sharper, more focused mind; a stronger sense of self-confidence; more self-discipline; the ability to physically defend yourself — who wouldn’t want these things for themselves?


Practicing martial arts at Vieira Martial Arts in Sarasota, FL is about physical fitness, character development (self-esteem, self-confidence, focus and concentration, self-discipline) and self-defense.

People often think that martial arts are about fighting, but that’s not what we emphasize at Vieira Martial Arts. Instead, we focus on the personal development aspects of martial arts because that’s why most people participate.

Almost half of the 6 million participants in martial arts are children ages 6-17, according to statistics from the Sporting Goods Manufacturers Association. And it’s not unusual for the whole family to get involved — about one-third of the students are adults.

No matter what discipline of martial arts you choose, whether it is jiu-jitsu, aikido, karate, kung fu, taekwondo, judo, kali, tai chi, kendo or another one of the many forms of martial arts, the styles may differ, but the benefits remain the same.

Universal Benefits of Martial Arts

For a list of specific benefits for various age groups, visit the adult and children program pages on this site. Here are some universal benefits of martial arts:

Improved physical fitness: Make no mistake. Martial art is a great workout! It is a total body workout — your stamina, muscle tone, flexibility, balance, and strength will all show signs of improvement.

Enhanced self-esteem: By learning these skills and improving your physical condition, you become more comfortable in all situations — whether you’re in danger or simply doing a task that takes you beyond your comfort zone. Kids have a new sense of self-confidence, making them virtually “bully-proof.”

Increased focus and concentration: From the very first day of class, students are challenged to think as much as they act. Learning the forms and movements reinforces working memory. That’s why the Mayo Clinic specifically counts martial arts among the effective therapies for ADD and ADHD.

Increased social skills: Martial arts strongly emphasize self-discipline and self-control as a core component of its teachings. Self-leadership and the ability to deal with others in a mature way is the result.

Stress relief: Training self-defense with another person is a great release, no matter what your age.

Respect for values: Honesty, courtesy, integrity, perseverance, and excellence are some curriculum areas of focus. These qualities help both children and adults become great leaders.

Our mission at Vieira Martial Arts in Sarasota is building strong minds and bodies, and our students range in age from 4 to 70. Please take advantage of special offers and experience the many benefits of martial arts!
