Pan American Championship 2018

The Pan American Championship has ended after 4 days of tough battles.We are bringing home 3 new Pan American Champions, and 3 Bronze medalists! Back to work tomorrow at the academy to improve ourselves once again, always. Congrats to everyone that competed and put themselves on the line to test their skills and abilities in the most tense of situations 




Pan American Camp

March 1 marked 15 days until the Pan American Championship. With 12 competitors from our academy going to Irvine to compete, the focus has been grooming and preparing them. We couldn't have done it without all the other students as well. They are coming day in and day out as our training partners with all the encouragement on our side. We are all in this together. The 7pm class was revamped (sorry to all the new students who were thrown into comp training). What used to be advanced technique class with ample drilling time was thrown aside and replaced with quick- 20 second speed drills with 4 reps each. Then 3-3-3 shark rolls, 10 minute rounds and 1 minute rounds as well on any given day. All of this was designed to help prepare us for multiple fights, strategic game play and endurance. This weekend is the last before we leave on Wednesday and I can confindently say that everyone is more than prepared. Our physical and mental mindset is there. Now it's just time to press PLAY 


Pssst!! The word is out! We received a lovely email late last year that we had been awarded the Excellence in Small Business for Martial Arts in the city of Mountain View. We are beyond humbled. We want to thank every one of our students for their wonderful support and the grind, day in and out. This is a team effort and without the students, we wouldn't be here today. We now have the plaque to display in our academy! Please don't ever hesitate to stop by, swing by, come hang out or try a class with us... chances are, you'll end up staying for awhile 

Rumble in the Redwoods 2017


This past weekend our students fought at Rumble In The Redwoods and had great success! They were driven, methodical and precise. We had 10 students compete Five of them walked away with gold medals, and 4 students closed their divisions with gold and silver! Great job to everyone. This was a nice warm up before Pans!
