About Us

We believe training in martial arts and personal protection is a personal journey.

Our Approach

Small class size and personal attention make it possible for anyone to learn at their own pace in a non-threatening environment. Whether you want to study a martial art style or simply learn to protect yourself your goals are our goals,.

Our Story

I have been heavily involved in martial arts training and instructing most of my life. I train and teach the lessons and skills which I have learned over more than four decades as a student and instructor of traditional Japanese, other martial arts and personal protection. I am convinced that personal protection is about more than using your fists and that regular martial arts training brings together body, mind and spirit.
