Triumph Martial Arts Opens New Location at The Orange Planet

Des Moines, IA, September 12, 2009 --( Triumph Martial Arts owner and chief Instructor Matt White currently operates two family focused martial arts locations in Newton and Pella and is adding a third in eastern Des Moines. “We chose our third location to be at The Orange Planet after seeing their incredible facilities, location and what we could offer our clients by being part of a like-minded facility,” said Matt White.

Triumph Martial Arts has a clear focus on wholesome training curriculum that is based on two concepts; positive mental attitude and high goal setting. Their programs promise to give each individual and family a most professional, well-supervised and high-quality class.

Triumph, a traditional Taekwondo art offers classes for pre-school aged children through adults. The club offers a well organized and proven manner in doing business, solid leadership, and monthly incentives based around themes and life skills.

Charleston, owner of The Orange Planet, Iowa’s newest athletic club, himself is familiar with martial arts as he trained for years in the Shotokan Karate style. While he remains a bit bias when asked about his style, he welcomes Triumph to the area. “The reality of building a business is that I like to collaborate with quality people that have a passion for what they do. Matt is just that. By working with Matt it ultimately helps both of us fulfill our mission statements and provides like-minded fitness services for our community,” said Charleston.

Matt White, instructor and owner will lead Triumph’s new Des Moines location. Matt comes from a long standing commitment to the art and family values. He has trained for many years rising to the top in his art. He started training in 1985 and has been with the American Taekwondo Association (ATA) since 1997.
