Glendale Martial Arts

Discover Self-Defense, Fitness & Fulfillment... All Under One Roof.

About Our School

Welcome to the family!

Our Glendale Martial Arts school might just seem like a place to get fit and learn self-defense... but to us it’s so much more. When you train with us you’ll experience a place where you fit in, no matter what your background or fitness level is. You’ll also learn powerful adult martial arts, discover ways to keep your children safe, and learn secret tips to staying in amazing shape known previously only to elite martial artists.

You’ll get into the best shape of your life, learn super-cool self-defense moves, and experience changes that absolutely completely change the lives of our new students. Sure you’ll get stronger, and maybe never have to ask for help opening a pickle jar again, but the subtle change of our students' minds are what amaze us the most.

We’ll help you get next level fit, but below are a few of the more subtle changes our students experience in our classes as well.

#1 Gain Tremendous Confidence

Working out is tough. Heck, the commute to and from work can be tough - let alone changing lifelong habits for fitness and success! But it CAN be done. And we’re gonna help you. 

But we won’t do it for you. We’ll become a team and work together. Whether you want to get fitter or you’re in it to win it and compete in a fitness contest at some point, trying something new is challenging, both physically and mentally.

But...as you push past your limits and listen to your instructors as they inspire and cheer you on...

You will get a HUGE SURGE OF CONFIDENCE! You’ll also get in amazing shape, which gives you a positive and healthy body image, gain a lot more energy and all those “feel good” feelings from moving your body in an entirely new way.

#2 Laser-like Focus

Martial Arts is a ton of fun! You’ll learn all kinds of new skills and techniques like striking drills, defensive moves, and even some fun cardio drills. But... when you learn something new, you have to concentrate on listening to the instructor, then perform what they taught you.

The cool thing is that this intense focus naturally pours into all other areas of your life as you develop spot on focus. It’s one of the most amazing side effects of martial arts — many call it getting in the zone, unlocking your hidden potential, or peak performance.

Whatever you want to call it, one thing is for sure — you’ll learn how to focus your mind to perform things you once thought were impossible.

#3 Fitness Will Suit You

No matter what your starting level is, each one of our students improves from the state they were in when they walked in for their first class. From complete and total beginner to elite athletes, we strive to make sure each class is loaded with challenging and fun exercises that work your entire body.

You’ll be so focused on performing techniques unique to some of the worlds top performing martial artists, and having so much fun, that before you know it, the class is over, and you not only learned powerful martial arts...

... but you got a great workout, too. Being physically fit boosts energy, mental clarity, and confidence as well.

#4 Become Part of a Community

We're a tight-knit group here. And our members and instructors are all about support and friendship. We provide the kind of environment that fosters friendship, encouragement, and motivation.

Your classmates will be genuinely happy for you when you master your new tasks because they know how hard you have to work for it. Now extend that mentality into a wide network of martial artists, practicing and struggling, just like you.

There's a reason Martial Artists typically greet each other as "brother" or "sister" and it's truly powerful to see that realization sink in for new students.

#5 Breakup with Boredom, Have FUN!

Stuck in a fitness rut or tired of hitting up bootcamp style classes just to be yelled at on your personal time? Ugh, who can blame you... luckily our classes are NOTHING like that. Action-packed and totally fun, focused on your success, and always changing. No two workouts are the same and we use positive motivation.

No military style yelling or body shaming, ever.

Both kids and adults both work hard, but also play hard too. Laughing, smiles, and high fives are part of every class.

Make your fitness dreams come true while learning how to protect yourself and your family.

We’re so dedicated to community improvement and safety that we’re offering a limited time 100% money back guarantee on all web-specials. So, if we’re not a good fit for you, no worries. But chances are you’ll love it here. If you’re comfortable signing up over the internet, we highly encourage it. If not, don't hesitate to give us a call: (818) 957-7544

Looking forward to seeing you in class!
