Why Our Martial Arts Program Is So Powerful.

Most martial arts force you to "retrain" your body to do things that don't feel natural.

Not here.

We've crafted a program that works WITH your body's natural instincts - not against them.

That means it's FAST to learn, and EASY to use when you need it most.

You'll discover:

Incredible hand to hand combat techniques

How to stay safe when surprise-attacked - and escape

How to defend yourself & the ones you love from an armed attacker

What to do against opponents much larger than you in size

How to turn your environment into a weapon to use against an attacker

How to identify and escape danger BEFORE it happens

Ultimately: How to stay safe & live a peaceful life

Beginner? You're More Than Welcome.

Even if you've never thrown a kick or a punch in your life... you'll fit right in and have a blast from day 1.

9 out of 10 of our members were total beginners when they first came to us.

That means you're in good company with people who understand what it means to start from scratch. You'll get support, kindness, and help through every step of your training.

Get In Amazing Shape, Fast.

You'll build strength, endurance, flexibility, power, and speed.

Plus: You'll like the way you look. Combined with healthy eating, martial arts sculpts and tones your entire body.

Become A More Confident, Better You.

These classes are challenging. But that challenge forces you to dig deep and meet it head on.

As a result, your confidence will soar as you accomplish more and more. You'll realize how strong you really are on the inside and that strength will pour into every area of your life.

That's the true gift of our Adult and Teen Martial Arts classes.

Frequently Asked Questions

Any sport or form of exercise comes with a risk of injury. However, there are a few things that make our program very safe. It's because of these few things that we barely see any injuries with our program.

Stretching: At the beginning of every class we go through a series of stretches. These stretches get your muscles and joints ready and warmed up for exercise.

Supervision: Every class is supervised by trained, licensed professionals. We watch carefully to make sure no student is doing anything in a dangerous or unsafe way.

In short, we place a tremendous amount of focus on fun and safety. It's because of this that we feel confident telling you that while there is risk for injury with our program - it's a very small risk.
People come to us of all fitness levels. We get natural-born athletes, and we get people who have a harder time with athletic endeavors. However, everyone gets the same focus and attention.

If you're not in great shape, don't worry. Go at your own pace, and we'll do everything we can to help you learn each and every technique. Soon enough, your physical fitness will improve, and you'll be in better shape than ever!
No! Because self-defense technique is taught in martial arts, it's often thought of as violent. However, the philosophies behind martial arts revolve around peace and harmony. The moves are more of a way to become connected with your body. We teach diplomacy and friendship. However, if a violent situation ever arises in your life, you'll have powerful tools to defend yourself and your loved ones.

Excellent self protection system to learn, very though and complete in fighting system. learning a hard style from a traditional system not only teaches you to defend your self but to live a better life

I tried all through my twenties and early thirties to find an exercise program that I would enjoy and would stick with. I tried the gym, aerobics and yoga but nothing stuck. I thought I had always wanted to learn karate so I finally went in to try it. Now over 20 years later I guess you can say I found something that I could stick with! The program not only transforms you physically, but it engages your mind and emotions. I built a confidence that affects every aspect of my life. Master Armen inspires you to try harder without pushing. Try it and you will not regret it!

I have been taking lessons here from Master Armen for the better part of 17 years, since I was six years old. What I’ve learned here goes far beyond martial arts; he has taught me to be confident and strong, and to believe in myself. I cannot recommend this program strongly enough.

This school is awesome. I have been training here since 1991 and I don't regret a single class. Master Heroian is an awesome instructor. He inspires us all as students to strive to be our best in not just the martial arts, but in daily life. He makes the classes not only upbeat and fun, but Master Heroian also stays in touch with what is going on in the area to make our training more practical for the streets. This school is one you definitely want to check out. You won't be disappointed.

Our family has been training in this dojo for 7 years now. I have watched each of my four children thrive and change greatly with each passing belt. They each have different strengths and different needs, and master Heroian does a great job teaching them individually. Self defense and martial arts techniques are taught alongside character building blocks such as perseverance, self control, humility, self esteem, discipline, strength of will, and more. Our family gives it 5 stars!
