Our Bujutsu (‘Martial Way’ in Japanese) program is the product of multiple martial art styles and experiences. It is a dynamic style that integrates traditional and contemporary aspects of major disciplines. The program is continually reviewed to ensure we offer a well-balanced and effective training system for every student. You will learn Martial Arts and Self-Defense techniques from the traditional martial arts such as Judo, Karate, Kung Fu, Hapkido, Wing Chun and Jui Jitsu along with acquiring skills from Boxing, Kick Boxing, Wrestling and more.

Bujutsu is a fun and exciting way to improve your core strength, increase endurance and stamina, and learn how to defend yourself better on your feet or on the ground. Students learn respect and responsibility as they learn and improve their skills and techniques.


Tai Chi

Tuesday and Thursday 6:00p

Sunday 9:00a

Tai Chi is an ordered series of simple full-body movements to increase strength, improve balance, reduce pain and decrease stress in an easy-to-follow class for all fitness levels.

Although Tai Chi is slow and gentle and doesn’t leave you breathless, it addresses the key components of fitness — muscle strength, flexibility, balance, and, to a lesser degree, aerobic conditioning. Highly recommended by many recognized medical authorities.  There’s plenty of space for newcomers to join us.  Outdoor training weather permitting.



Tuesday and Thursday 5:00p

Saturday 12:00p

 The class typically starts with a few minutes of warm up training followed by training on proper and basic striking techniques on heavy bags and working with practice pads. The class make up is adults and kids (mostly teens) and we match up students according to their skill levels.  Because this is a strenuous competitive sport, we focus on cardio and core training in addition to learning the skills and techniques in our classes.

Our programs are designed for student participation at a pace that is comfortable for each individual.
