Minorsan Philosophy honors and respects everyone for their given skills and abilities.

Everyone develops their skills and abilities based on what their bodies already know, therefore anyone can do this. Minorsan Philosophy provides each person with options to all exercises, as it is customized according to their particular body structure and needs. Learning is easier with this method, as each person knows they're not expected to be like anyone else.

We take current skill levels into account, so everyone feels comfortable. Respect and safety are the highest priorities for everyone, as this sets the ambiance of the Studio. With our Minorsan Philosophy, all participants are treated equally, and are expected to treat everyone else the same.

This philosophy supports all members in doing their best, as they know everything recommended will be working towards their safety. Community is an important part of our Studio, as it's the cornerstone of all we do.

Minorsan Philosophy is to build your Confidence into a life of Fearlessness

Maintaining a well-balanced and positive atmosphere for working out, training, and learning, is a priority with our Minorsan Philosophy. Discrimination and disrespect, of any kind whatsoever, are not allowed.

We strive to provide a safe, productive, and fun learning environment for everyone. Instructors strive to help individuals to gain inner power, thereby building confidence in their bodies.

With the knowledge acquired through the various workouts and classes, they'll feel better about who they are in this world because they gain more inner strength & power (self-confidence & esteem).

They will also get stronger, and much more knowledgeable about their options for staying as safe as possible, getting fit & healthy, and living a better-balanced life.

Change can only happen one person at a time, and it begins with you.

Children's Philosophy

Children at MINORSAN are treated with respect. They have yet to find their true inner power, devoid of outside negative influences (which can often destroy self-esteem and confidence), and treating them with respect helps tremendously in building their self-esteem. As the years go by, they will gain self-knowledge. Given this, we provide all children with the tools necessary to develop themselves into successful young persons, and continue on into adulthood with true life-success skills and strategies which cultivate leadership.

All material is age-specific for the particular children in any group. Respect for everyone is a high priority, and this includes children. All participants are treated with an equal amount of respect and are expected to treat everyone else the same.

Training methods are taught with their well-being a top priority. This includes emotional, as well as mental, and physical well-being. Our objective is to diminish fear, not create more, therefore empowering the child.

Discipline is taught as a personal responsibility, and they learn to be accountable to themselves, to their parents/caregivers, and to their teachers/instructors.
