Not Just Another Sport

Our training is not just another after-school activity. We produce personal development through physical discipline. We work hard to instill the values of respect, courtesy, honesty, perseverance, and integrity that are the foundation of martial arts dating back thousands of years.


Nobody Sits On The Bench

Martial arts is not a team sport, the only person that you are competing with is yourself. Each person is treated as an equal and is trained to the best of their own ability and potential. A student is never compared to anyone else. Our instructors are there to guide, instruct, and motivate you to be the best that you can be.


Professional Training For All Ages

Students come to us from age 4 to 65. Some students are in shape, while others are overweight. Some come for self defence, or fitness, and others for fun. The beauty is, we work with everyone. Our classes are scalable to meet your unique skill level and our instructors are dedicated to your success.


Helping You Enjoy Complete Success

The combined physical and character foundations that we develop help children excel in their academic school studies, sports, and their social endeavours. It ensures that they will have the confidence in themselves and the character to make the right decisions when confronted with negative peer pressure. They will be leaders, not followers.
