Martial Arts literally translates to, "The arts of war". Lots of schools and gyms tend to focus on one or the other, martial or art....
We focus on both.
We offer instruction in Traditional and Competitive Martial Arts. To us its not just about being an effective fighter in the ring and on the street, it is also about being a martial artist. We prepare students for competitions and real life situations by incorporating modern, hands on training with traditional techniques and methods of instruction, so that you get the best of martial and art.
Rather than a combined curriculum, our academy offers expert training in each individual art, as well as sport specific instruction for MMA and Kickboxing, so that no aspect of training is missing or incomplete.
We are a serious martial arts school for serious practicioners who want to see what the martial arts can really offer. You will never be disappointed by "softened up", or "watered down" methods of instruction. You will learn the real thing, and get into the best shape of your life.
