Kids and families learn DISCIPLINE and build
Our Family Martial Arts program gives benefits to children which reach far beyond the dojo into the real-world arena.
Our classes are structured to develop fitness, coordination, mental fortitude, and valuable social skills. We bring out the best in your children to help them succeed in life.
The family program is designed specifically so parents can train side-by-side with their children. Together they all can enjoy their journey to Black Belt and beyond in a unique system of Kenpo Ju Jitsu, the healing arts of the Dan Zan Ryi Jitsu system; and with the master key elements of Kali-Silat and Mui-Thai Kickboxing.
ADULT MARTIAL ARTS PROGRAM
Both adults and mature teens will find that studying martial arts is an activity that any age or fitness level can do. The classes are both fun and empowering. Whether you want to defend yourself, gain confidence, lose weight, or just have fun, our adult martial arts program has something to offer.

Knowledge is Power
The structure of our programs supports an individual’s rapid and sustainable growth. Over the past 40 years the methods and technology we use has evolved greatly. We know humans learn in a variety of different ways and each class, workshop, and private lesson that we teach has been curated to support the myriad of ways that humans learn.
Mastery is not a spectator sport
We encourage all our members to embrace the training methodologies we employ in class by practicing at home. Our approach to teaching embraces the traditional paradigm of training for a lifetime. We provide the tools that allow for continued individual self-growth wherever a student may be. Our instructors are ready to assist with long distance questions. Generally, this transformation occurs after several months in class as confidence in spirit occurs, the body and mind become stronger, and limiting beliefs melt away.
