Beginners are welcome, and so are experienced martial artists. The primary training curriculum consists of Okinawan Shito-Ryu Karate; of Chinese Yang-Style Tai-Chi Chuan (Taiji); of the ground fighting and grappling arts of Brazilian Jiu-jitsu (BJJ), Chinese Chin-na (Qinna), and Japanese Aiki-jitsu, Jiu-Jitsu and Judo; of practical Krav-Maga and Mixed Martial Arts (MMA); and of wooden and bladed weapons such as escrima sticks, knife, and sword. We also teach the healing arts of Qigong (chi kung) and Yoga, for your mind and body. These are comprehensive martial arts which combine physical movement and philosophy; tactics and strategy; self defense and self development. They allow students to unleash the full potential in them. Our classes are geared specifically for adults and teenagers, and we accept students age 12 and over.

Through systematic training you will increase your strength, flexibility, coordination, energy and stamina. You will also relieve stress and develop self-discipline, all while acquiring solid self-defense skills.
By the time you are a black belt, you will have achieved a level of proficiency in striking, grappling, ground fighting and use of martial arts weapons — all against multiple opponents. You will have also strengthened your body and soul, and increased your self confidence and sense of well-being. More importantly, as you practice the martial arts, you will notice a transformation of your character: as your abilities increase, so will your sense of calm and compassion.
