Falcon Heights, MN (PressExposure) June 26, 2013 -- Award-winning martial arts teacher, Mr. Jake Erling, has just opened The Art, LLC Martial Arts Studio in Falcon Heights. The Art offers martial arts training for children and adults. Their rigorous programs include training from white to black belt, plus basic self-defense tactics that can prepare adolescents on how to handle situations with bullies in the school yard.
Mr. Jake began his martial arts training at the age of six and became a 1st degree black belt at age fifteen. With 21 years of experience, he now holds a 3rd degree black belt.
"As a little kid, I was mesmerized with Bruce Lee and wanted to be just like him," Mr. Jake recalls. "He is the reason I started taking karate classes. What I didn't know at the time is how much of a positive impact the martial arts world would be on my life, my health, my attitude, my everything! Martial arts is more than a sport, it's really an art form and a lifestyle - that's why I named my new studio, The Art."
Mr. Jake has trained hundreds of award winning students who have become instructors themselves. He is still an avid Bruce Lee fan and teaches his students about the martial arts icon every chance he gets. He even proudly sports a Bruce Lee tattoo on his forearm as a reminder of the great man who set his life on the right path.
He goes on to explain, "The Art's martial art style is a mix of traditional Tae Kwon Do, American Karate, American Kickboxing, an embraces many Gracie Jiu Jitsu practice. It's a real combination of the best of the best!"
