Santa Clarita, CA – May 2, 2022 – When Robert Gast opened Trident Martial Arts 16 years ago, he made it his mission to empower 5,000 families in the SCV community to become the best versions of themselves. This mission was a direct result of the continued health crisis that America’s families have been battling. Based on studies, only 23% of Americans currently get enough exercise and Gast knows that the physical training he provides can change that.
Through 20 years of teaching families martial arts, Gast has seen the results and benefits of living an active lifestyle through martial arts that he provides. At Trident Martial Arts he uses both Taekwondo and Krav Maga as vehicles to help assist his students in various ways. According to the seasoned trainer, these increase confidence, boost energy and productivity, improve emotional well-being, and combat diseases. His lessons also develop martial art athletes.
At Trident Martial Arts, families learn how to develop positive habits like time management discipline, goal setting and achieving, and family accountability to push through the negative habits that lead many Americans into a sedentary lifestyle.
According to Gast, “Parents are the singular largest influence on their children”. When families train together, moms and dads become the best examples to their kids regarding fitness, goal setting, and becoming the best people they can be. Their environment including the people around them will help build that identity. If they are constantly being shown how to live an active and healthy lifestyle by their leaders (parents), they easily form habits and develop disciplines that lead to success. At TMA, we want to help every family that walks through our doors to build their best identity both physically and mentally. When families kick together, they stick together”.
Now that Trident Martial Arts has empowered over 5,000 families to become the best versions they can be, the next goal is 15,000. Gast has a 3-year plan to triple the number of families positively impacted in the community.
