Our Main School, where we have been located since 1979, is on South Lyndale Avenue just North of Lake Street in Uptown, Minneapolis and right next to the Greenway. It is a state-of-the-art martial arts fitness center, and is without a doubt the premier martial facility in Minnesota.
The facility is 6400 square feet, with an additional 1500 square feet of secure, outdoor training area behind the school. We have the usual assortment of kicking bags, pads and targets and training aids you'd expect. The main training area is entirely covered with a rubber mat, and we have additional, thicker mats we use for throwing and falling.
The main training room is a large, open room, with 18 foot ceilings and gigantic iron beams, giving it an open, airy warehouse feel. The front of the building is windows, and the North side also has 5 full size glass block windows, which illuminate the room with natural sunlight and make for a very pleasant, natural training experience. There is a large unisex bathroom on the main floor.
The basement has a large lounge/waiting area, men and women's bathrooms and very large men and women's changing rooms.
There is also an office/pro-shop on the main floor just inside the front door, and on the mezzanine level Mr. Carey has his private office and there is a large storage area.
