One shoe does not fit all in anything, including martial arts. Cookie cutter programs DO NOT work!
We offer age specific curricula for everyone unlike anything available elsewhere. Each program is specifically developed to meet the needs of that group. Our Life Skills & Martial Arts Program is geared for kids ages 5 and above who have already started Kindergarten through middle school age. Our Practical Self-Defense Program is open to adults of all ages and fitness levels. Gendai Goshin Jitsu focuses primarily on teaching realistic self-defense skills. We also hold training for Law Enforcement personnel plus periodic Workshops as well as customized courses tailored to the needs of organizations, companies, and civic groups.
We are now offering customized workshops Please see our WORKSHOPS page for full information.
Some say we teach “Dirty Ju Jitsu.” You are darn right we do!

WHY? BECAUSE IT WORKS, IS SIMPLE, AND ANYONE CAN DO IT!
Your personal health and safety is our concern and NOT teaching formal martial arts or sport related martial arts!!! We are not your typical school and as such are not caught up in teaching an art for its traditional or sport benefits.
We are sincerely concerned about your well being, fitness and personal safety!
You will not find another school like ours anywhere in this area. We provide 100% real-world self-defense training, focused on the ability to defend yourself under realistic conditions – not scripted classroom scenarios!
