About Us

Student Creed

I develop myself for success.

Mentally, physically, and with a positive attitude.

By avoiding negative habits and attitudes. 

I develop self discipline

in order to bring out the best

in myself and others around me.

I will use common sense 

before self defense

and never be

abusive or offensive!



Our Mission Statement

It is our mission to provide a positive, safe and family-oriented environment for people of all ages to train and empower themselves through martial arts and physical fitness. 

We are dedicated to the development of a positive attitude practicing proper discipline and exhibiting respect both for oneself and for others.

We educate our students on how to mentally, emotionally, physically, and realistically defend themselves if deemed necessary. The result of this education is a confident student - one who flourishes from the development of a stronger mind, a stronger body, and a positive attitude!

We are committed to helping our students set goals and achieve success both in the arts and in life. We aim to make a difference by offering fun, progressive, dynamic and empowering classes. At the end of the day, our students shine from the difference...they are motivated, educated, and inspired to train.
