I'm very happy to have sent my son to Toe2Toe martial arts. Master Curtiss is amazing and he loves the kids and is being kind and patient with them. He is dedicated and professional and truly cares about each student in the class. My son Shaan enjoys the training and we're looking forward to continuing the same. I bet my son is in a safe, fun and disciplined environment. I really appreciate Master Curtiss and Caleb (little master) for helping my son grow mentally and physically strong.I highly recommend Toe2Toe martial arts training for anyone. He is the best!!!Senthil Rajendran

I have always had a wonderful and educational experience with Curtis. He is always willing to slow down and explain and empower whoever he comes into contact with.

I've personally trained with the head instructor, Curtiss Robinson for years. He was one of the first martial arts instructors I've ever had, and after several years of training I received my black belt in his art. At Toe2Toe you will learn from an array of different arts including BJJ, traditional Jiujitsu (for takedowns similar to both Judo and Wrestling), and kickboxing. Thanks to solid foundation laid down by Curtiss (and my other instructors at the time, Bill MacCumbee and Matt Avant) I've been able to enter the world of amateur fighting with full confidence in my abilities.Aside from self-defense, some of the most important lessons you will learn here will be mental. Learning and drilling new techniques is only half the battle, the other half is creating the proper mindset for approaching confrontations of any sort and assessing the proper reaction to the situation. Curtiss is one of the best sources for learning all of the above.

This is an amazing program. My 5 year old son takes junior jujitsu and junior kickboxing. Curtiss works very well with him. He is kind and patient with the children as they learn new skills. I've tried other Martial Arts programs for my son. He never wanted to participate. Curtiss worked with him to build confidence. I have seen a huge improvement in my sons confidence and respect. My son looks forward to going to all of his classes. He really looks up to Curtiss. It's a fun and safe place for him to learn new self defense skills. I would recommend them to anyone looking for an incredible Martial Arts program.

I've personally known Curtiss for over 25 years in the Martial arts world. He by far is one of the best instructors I've ever trained with. He is concise, teaches reality based Martial Arts, communicates extremely well and is the total Package. He can Walk The Walk, And Talk The Talk. Pay him a visit, I'm sure he will change your life.

My experiences with Curtis have never been anything but positive. He is knowledgeable and talented, but couples that will an amazing ability to translate that into a useable form for his students. I have never had another instructor that has had the same ability to demonstrate and communicate methods so clearly. Positive, professional, and demonstrates a honest interest in his students growth.

Toe2Toe is an awesome place. Curtiss is one of the best instructors I’ve ever worked with and is more interested in you as a person and helping you acquire skills than belts and ranks.

Toe 2 toe is a fantastic environment for anyone at any level of training, whether you’re training for self defense or just for the fitness aspect. Curtis is an incredible instructor who makes class extremely fun!

Why Martial Arts?

Can you physically defend yourself? Are you capable of defending a loved one if they were being physically assaulted? Most people can’t, or falsely believe they can. In most attacks, a person doesn’t have enough time to draw a weapon – if they’re even carrying. Quickly an attack can become a life or death situation if your attacker realizes you are armed and they start trying to access your weapon. Unless you know how to use your hands and body, you can quickly become a statistic. Toe 2 Toe is the premier martial arts school in Conway Arkansas. Our focus is on guiding you through your journey of building skills and confidence that will transform your life.

More than Self Defense

At its core, martial arts is a self-defense art. But more than that it promotes a total transformation of mind and body.  Practicing martial arts strengthens your mind and body. Your strength and conditioning improve. Your mind becomes sharp. You gain discipline that influences other areas in your life where you’re lacking. In the process, you discover a level of confidence you never imagined possible, and form friendships that last a lifetime.

Toe 2 Toe Classes

We offer a wide range of classes for both adults and kids.

  • Self Defense

    The act of using any available means to reduce or escape harm.  In Martial Arts this includes, but is not limited to leaving the area, talking your way out of bad situations, using “stun and run” tactics, employing improvised or modern weapons, and lastly engaging in physical confrontation until help arrives, the enemy is incapacitated, or escape is possible.  At Toe2Toe in Conway, AR our students have options and make good choices to avoid conflict.  They also have the ability to resolve conflict using techniques and skills learned under our guidance.

  • Confidence

    The feeling of self-assurance arising from one’s appreciation of one’s own abilities or skills.  In Martial Arts this is knowing what to do, when to do it, and how to utilize self-defense.  It also translates into self-esteem at work, in relationships, and in the presence of strangers.  It is the core advantage every student gains with hard work and discipline.

  • Friendships

    Conway’s Toe2Toe Martial Arts isn’t just a place to work out like the local gym.  It is a place to make lifelong friendships with other good natured people like you.  There is a true brotherhood here where we can show trust and respect without fear of rejection.  We help each other, have fun together, and even watch out for one another.
