Karate is a fun way to get in shape, learn important skills, and acquire new and exciting accomplishments. I started Karate with several other karate moms after we caught the excitement and enthusiasm watching our children at The Edge.

The edge is different from other schools because it's a more personal experience. Master Thorn and Mr. Abboud connect with you on a closer level than teachers do at their studios. They also have experience working with any type of learner. Master Thorn loves to work with kids who don't listen or can't hold still, and he turns them into great martial artists!

In my twenty years of experience in the martial arts I have trained with hundreds of black belts at dozens of schools. Thorn is definetly one of the premier instructors in the country!

The Edge Martial Arts is led by Master Thorn, without a doubt I would rank Master Thorn my top favorite teacher of all time. His instinctive method of teaching helps me absorb not only the mechanics of the martial arts but also its individual applications to a real world situations. This is valuable information not offered everywhere!

I've been to several Martial Arts schools, and nowhere have I found the training experience as good as it is at The Edge. The classes are fun, and give you the skills you need to defend yourself in any situation. I spent years training with Master Nathan Thorn and consider myself extremely fortunate. He gave me confidence to succeed, not just as a fighter, but in real life. Job interviews and social situations are a cakewalk after the training I went through with Master Thorn. I would put my reputation behind this man and his school. Whether you want to simply get in the best shape of your life, become a world fighting champion, or learn how to be someone your friends and family look up to, The Edge is the place to do it!

The edge, but more so the sport of karate, have taught me numerous life skills such as; determination, hard work, and self-discipline. Master Thorn is a great teacher, mentor and friend who has only great things to say and teach.

Master Thorn provides a world class experience for kids and adults. Not only does he offer outstanding karate training, he promotes discipline, respect and excellence in all aspects of life. My daughter has trained with Master Thorn for ten years and I couldn't be happier with the experience. We are fortunate to have such a skilled, caring teacher and exceptional training facility in the area. The Edge Martial Arts is truly the best.

I like the edge, because everyone is helpful and you can rely on people, I think sparring is the best and learning new things there is a lot of fun. Its just an awesome place. The edge also teaches you how to be a leader and it helps with just everything in life, not just karate.

I'm so proud to be an Edge parent!

Master Thorn is a talented, knowledgeable instructor. He truly loves and lives the martial arts, and is always open to learning new skills himself. In addition to his karate classes, he regularly invites outside experts in to add to his students' opportunities to explore all kinds of techniques and traditions.

My sons have spent a lot of time at the Edge over the past 8 years. When we go to competitions, it's always so obvious that the expectations and standards at the Edge are much higher than at other schools.

The confidence and skills my sons have learned have affected them in so many aspects of their lives. My sons have flourished in this environment. I am grateful we have connected with this amazing program.

Master Thorn is an outstanding instructor and runs a superior martial arts studio. My oldest son transfered to The Edge 7 years ago and Master Thorn and his professional team brought out the very best in his martial arts skills and in his personal skills, such as dicipline, perseverence and confidence. The results, enthusiasm and enjoyment were so contagious that my other son and I joined The Edge,too. Master Thorn makes karate fun and helps you to accomplish your goals no matter your skill level or age. Martial arts is more than great fitness and self defense, it is about being the best that you can be. Learn from the best of the best and begin the journey.

Master Thorn had complete control and the respect of all the students in my 6 year olds class-which is not an easy task! He not only teaches them physical skills, but life skills like how to handle conflict, how to respect your elders and do your homework, etc.
He also instills self confidence in his students

As a student who has trained under different instructors in the past I have to say that Master Nathan Thorn definitely is best that I have ever seen.

In past schools I have witness Star Students but I have also witnessed a high ranking students that don't belong at those ranks and no real standards are set or being followed.

At The Edge you can easily tell why the high ranking students are high ranking. It is no wonder why Master Thorn has produced more champions out of one school that anyone else.

The Edge Martial Arts is by far the best martial arts school in the St. Croix Valley and Twin Cities Metro area to train at. All the instructors have the ability to bring out the best in each student whether, it's a child or an adult. Master Thorn creates a family atmosphere at the school but it is one that revolves around respect and discipline. They also have world champions teaching both forms and sparring along with other world ranked, national and regional champions instructing as well. There competition team has produced many regional, national and world champions. Since being there I have never felt pressured into a contract but have felt part of a family. Simply put the Edge Martial Arts is the best out there.

Pros: Instruction, Training Facility, Atmosphere, Professionalism, Great Life Skills, Flexible Training Schedule, Wide Variety of Martial Arts Disciplines, Top Notch Competition Team

Cons: Small Locker Rooms

I have trained at The Edge since it opened, and with Master Thorn even before that time and have found that Master Thorn truly is a "Master" of the art. His attention to detail, patience and strive to bring out every bit of potential in his students is something to be treasured. I have accomplished more than I had ever thought to, or had even set out to do because of the drive, encouragement and the instilled mindset to always be something more that Master Thorn developed in me. I have also found that the self confidence and dedication I have gained in myself, and to myself, has helped me in all aspects of my life.

If you are looking to train in martial arts, you will find that these underlying qualities are the most important part of your training; you won't find this quality at your average martial arts school.
