I've know Curtiss for over 5 years. He introduced me to martial arts and trained me daily for no compensation other than the satisfaction of spreading the art. He is a true master and I am honored to have been trained by him.

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 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.

I had the pleasure of taking concealed carry and firearm training under Mr. Robinson. He was very knowledgeable about gun technique, control, biometrics, and safety. He was very laid back and made you feel comfortable while learning. I am thankful for his positive and patient approach toward helping me improve my skills and renew my license. I will continue to use him for all of my self defense and concealed carry training.

It’s a fun, safe place to learn martial arts or to do fun classes such as kettlebell and insanity. But if that’s not your thing personal training is also available. Your not treated as a dollar sign your treated like family from the first moment you walk through the doors.

Always have a fun and educational experience at Curtis’ dojo! Teaches and explains things in a way just about anyone can understand (very good about changing how he approaches things if you need him to) and just all around a great person. Would recommend and plan on coming back myself!

Our experience with Curtiss was invaluable! He was very personal and taught each of my family at the level of their ability! He shared the importance of situational awareness. He taught us how to approach self defense. He showed us techniques and strategies that can be employed in many situations. As a father, I feel my family is better prepared to defend themselves if something happens. We are looking forward to spending more time with Curtiss to learn more techniques!Thanks Curtiss for what you do!!

I love the environment. My daughter has more faith in her confidence. I love the people around her here. Helping her. My daughter has only been going a week and everyday that passes she’s ready to go to class the next day. Thank you for welcoming her in ❤️

I have trained with Curtiss off and on for over 20 years. I can tell you that the students he produces are well rounded real world fighters and can defend themselves apply. He has experience in stand up fighter training and mixed martial fighter training. By far one of the best martial artists and trainers in the Conway regional area.

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.

  • 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.
