Martial Arts

Offering traditional and modern training programs to students of all ages!

At Budokan (‘Martial Academy’) Martial Arts, we believe practicing martial arts provides a productive venue for students of all ages to build excellent character and self-esteem while learning an art that teaches respect, responsibility, discipline, and self-control. These qualities are not only applied within the class atmosphere, but are imperative personal qualities that become a seamless part of who students are in their daily lives.

We are a unique facility with multiple skilled instructors, offering a greater diversity of disciplines than other dojos.  Our flagship Bujutsu (‘Martial Way’) program is a distinct blend & training experience of traditional & modern disciplines with youth, adult & family classes.  We also offer specific classes in Judo, Tai Chi, Boxing, Mixed Martial Arts (MMA), Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ), Wrestling,  Fitness Boxing, Aikido/Hapkido, Muay Thai Kickboxing, Kung Fu, Yoga & more.
