  • Learn Martial Arts Values:


    1. Respect: Respect is the foundation of martial arts. Our students show respect by following the traditions of bowing and saying, “Thank you, Sir” in every class. In doing so, our students will take the appreciation and respect that they learn to their homes, schools, and communities.
    1. Discipline: We will help your child develop the self-control and discipline that will surely improve their academics as well as any other activity they are involved in. Our students have the self-control to make the right decisions even in tough situations.
  1. Confidence: Our students develop the confidence in themselves to accomplish anything they wish, in and out of the martial arts schools. We help shy, timid children who can’t even look you in the eye, develop the confidence to break through concrete at their black belt graduation. When children develop confidence at The Art of Self Defense, they show confidence in school, home and activities which translates to a successful child in life.
  • Bully Proof: We provide our students with quality martial arts instruction that will give your children the skills to defend themselves, become “bullyproof,” and learn martial arts skills, while getting physical exercise. The physical training allows your children to be physically active, get proper exercise and develop healthy habits. This will lead them to feel great about what they are doing and about themselves!
