Our mission is to make a positive difference in the lives of children, youth, men and women and our community in general, through the study of Historical European Martial Arts. We specifically prohibit discriminatory or harassing behavior based on race, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, ethnic or religious background, or ability, and we will respond quickly and seriously to all forms of harassment.
We create a physical environment where everyone can learn to respect one another; our martial arts school promotes a safe, caring, orderly and supportive training space, where our students are assisted in achieving their highest potential in physical fitness, increased coordination, flexibility and endurance, and mental clarity and focus.
We train hard in an atmosphere of friendship, fellowship, and mutual respect. We’re willing to get sweaty, tired, bumped and bruised in our training, but no one should ever be injured and we always treat our training partners with the utmost respect. Practicing full contact martial arts and martial sports with others is a privilege that carries the responsibility of safeguarding one’s training partners.
In our children’s and youth classes we strive to instill the martial arts values in a caring and fun environment that will empower them to successfully move into society with increased confidence, determination, self-esteem and unwavering spirit, but also with thoughtfulness & humanity.
We welcome you to join our community!
