Chances are you’re here at our website because you desire to enroll your child in a Martial Arts program. Your reasons most probably relate to: Physical Fitness, Self-Confidence and Self-Discipline.

KidsThis is why it is crucial to make the best possible decision for your child today. I often hear from parents of how they initially signed up for other Martial Arts programs which offered little more than a false sense of security after an entire year of expensive monthly Belt Promotion Ceremonies. If your child currently happens to be in a similar program please contact us right away.

All children are welcomed and encouraged to come train at our school regardless of their current strengths and abilities. We pride ourselves in building self confidence, physical fitness and self discipline in every child. We do so through a rewarding and caring environment, which leads to most of our students continuing their training into adulthood.

We invite you to bring your child for a free trial class or just to come and watch. While there, we welcome you to speak with the other parents and get their opinions about our program.

We are a FAMILY owned and operated academy. Our director, Vagner Rocha, is present for all classes. Please contact us with any questions or concerns, we look forward to hearing from you!
