  1. We saw the need to provide college scholarships for our outstanding graduating high school seniors.

In its most recent survey of college pricing, the College Board reports that a “moderate” college budget for an in-state public college for the 2013–2014 academic year averaged $22,826. A moderate budget at a private college averaged $44,750. Do we need to say anything more! Our students are awesome, and we would like to do whatever we can to help them succeed in life


  1. We saw the need to provide community martial arts classes holdand self -defense seminars.

Whether you are looking for a fun outing for your scout group,   want your children to handle themselves appropriately on the playground, or whether you want your daughter or son to be able to protect themselves from danger, the skills taught in our seminars and classes become invaluable in today’s society and will be carried throughout their lives.  Our instructors incorporate an atmosphere of professionalism, fun, and excitement to inspire, motivate, teach and excite students to learn, be active, and achieve their best.
