Mission and Vision
Welcome to H.E.A.R.T. Martial Arts
H.E.A.R.T. Martial Arts is a free Community Martial Arts Program that has begun in the Essex County — Newark New Jersey area. What is unique about this program is that the students have agreed to perform volunteer service work for other local and national nonprofit organizations to "earn" their lessons. The students will truly be building their Spirit/Character as they give from their hearts to help others.
It is our mission to help the students develop their Mind, Body and Spirit through their Martial Art and volunteer service work endeavors. H.E.A.R.T. represents Honor, Equality, Appreciation, Respect, and Trust, it is our hope to teach the students that they are empowered to make changes in their lives as well as the community in which they reside and beyond.
Our long term vision is to grow beyond "Martial Arts", the school and program's core teaches more than just kicking and punching. By having positive mentors that not only help others but learn and grow along with them, we help enrich the character and spirit of all those involved in ways that can not be measured. It's about helping each other achieve a higher standard in our hearts, minds and bodies. It is an educational and emotional journey, that happens on all levels. We hope that our students come to realize all of the connections that exist. Connections to our families, our communities, our nation and beyond.
