What Can You Expect From Our Minna-Jiu-Jitsu Classes?

Students will become proficient in their ability to defend themselves as they learn and practice the techniques over and over. Eventually doing a technique becomes second nature, and very little thought will have to be used in a hostile situation, just reaction. Students can join The Academy of Self-Defense at any age or rank from another style. We encourage Black Belts from other styles to join our school and see a different perspective in Martial Arts Training.

The Academy of Self-Defense will teach you how to use your natural abilities in ways you never thought possible, to defend yourself or someone you love. You will also gain new physical abilities that will guide you in your journey through the Martial Arts world. Do you have children that are introverted and do not like to express themselves in front of other people or at school? Martial Arts is a proven way to get your child to open up and express themselves, stop potential bullying and give them the confidence they need to succeed in life. Martial Arts have also been proven to help children with Autism, ADD, and low self-esteem.
