What We Teach Our Members

Our students are carefully taught proper stretching and exercise patterns. These training practices will help maintain healthy blood flow, muscles, and joints.

Classes offer a mixture of intense workouts, reaction training, self defense tactics and so much more!

The self defense techniques taught at our academy include kickboxing, joint-locks, legs sweeps, throws, and takedowns. Students are taught to fight only if they fear for their lives, but if they have to fight, they are encouraged and trained to fight by any means necessary.
