Master Nathan Thorn
The youngest 7th degree black belt in world ranking history. and  the most accomplished Martial Artist in the St. Croix Valley.
Welcome to The Edge Martial Arts

As Master Instructor and owner of The Edge Martial Arts, I invite you to start or continue your Martial Arts journey with The Edge. 

At THE EDGE, each student starts at the same beginner level and works towards the same goal (black belt). Students are given as much time as necessary to gain a complete understanding of each belt level and advance at their own pace.  We encourage individuals to challenge themselves and a strive to reach their own highest level of perfection.  

We understand that goals vary for each and every student, and our memberships are in support of that.  Whether your commitment level is as little as an 8 lesson punch card or a year of unlimited classes-- we have a program that you can be comfortable with. 

If becoming more physically fit, confident, and able to defend yourself is something you’d like to accomplish for yourself or your child, I welcome you to join us.

“I personally received karate training from Master Thorn and enjoyed it and benefited so much from it that I encouraged my daughter to join when she became old enough, only to learn of a whole new level of value in the form of encouraging good behavior and discipline with my child. Master Thorn really knows karate and how to relate that to people of all ages!”
“Master Thorn is a talented martial arts competitor, and a gifted instructor as well. My shy, quiet sons, under his guidance, have blossomed into confident young men and fierce competitors themselves. Nathan not only teaches his students karate skills, but encourages them in many ways to be leaders. I am also impressed that, despite his own advanced level of expertise, Nathan still is a student of the martial arts, and has a genuine interest in exploring different styles and traditions. He shares this passion by constantly updating his class offerings, and inviting respected martial artists to conduct workshops and classes. My sons are black belts at the Edge; we feel lucky to have found such a fantastic school and such a talented teacher.”
