Services Offered

The Arts We Teach

  • Capoeira – a martial art developed 400 years ago from a form of Angolan dance brought to Brazil. Under the watchful eyes of slave masters, Africans transformed the dance into a martial art that combines song and dance with offensive and defensive movements and stunning acrobatics.
  • Cardio Kickboxing – a workout for adults and teens set to popular music that blends martial arts and aerobics.
  • Escrima – (also known as Kali, or Modern Arnis), is a Filipino art form that uses sticks, knives, daggers, and empty hands in 12 striking zones.
  • Judo/Jujitsu – Japanese styles of self-defense that involve throwing, striking, choking, arm locks, and ground fighting.
  • Ju Trap Boxing – a mixed martial art that blends Small Circle Jujitsu, boxing fundamentals, contemporary Jeet Kune Do, and Escrima into a comprehensive, practical approach to self-defense.
  • Lil’ Ninjas – a specially designed curriculum for three-to-six year olds. We emphasize increased attention span and learning to be a first-time listener.
  • Taekwondo – a Korean martial art developed over 20 centuries ago that is an exercise system designed for unarmed self-defense. Taekwondo also teaches discipline and respect, lowers anxiety, and raises self-esteem.
