Transforming Human Potential Through Martial Arts Training and Study

We Teach So Much More than Kicking and Punching!

  • Character Development
    This is a ministry of martial arts with the goal of producing strong, confident and effective men and women who will positively impact the lives of their families, friends and community.
  • How to be A Champion in Life
    There is more to being a champion than your accomplishments in the ring. This path is long and filled with challenges, however if you are patient and steadfast, you will attain the goal and be transformed.
  • The Science of War
    The first law of nature is self preservation for survival. When it comes to facing an assault from a skilled and determined adversary, the knowledge and development of the skill of self-defense is as essential as math, reading or even eating.
  • Honesty & Integrity
    We strive to make our word our bond as we teach our children the value of keeping their word. This will aid in developing good character and integrity as our word is our bond and bond is life.

Hear From Our Clients

“…I’m becoming a lot better at self-defense. The teachers here are outstanding, and they make sure that you’re on top of your techniques, and even help you out after class if you ask them! There are no problems with any of the students or teachers, making the environment here absolutely wonderful.”

Malik S.

“I finally found a place I can call home. Martial Arts World is an excellent place for a dojo; it’s clean, organized, and the staff is professional. Shihan is one of the best teacher I have study under since I have been in martial arts! All of his Sensei’s under him are great instructors. His whole staff is hands on. It’s very few dojos that have a system or systems in place. This place has the systems and staff to accomplish whatever goals you want in martial arts.”

Chris B.

“I have learned so much in the time that I have been here. The instructors are the best! They are very patient with the students and very knowledgeable of their craft. I would encourage families looking for an excellent martial arts school to enroll their children here you will not be disappointed.”
