We place a strong emphasis on cardio conditioning, physical fitness and nutrition for the entire family. This school is tailored for those who want to protect themselves. We emphasize martial skill over martial art. You need to be comfortable fighting or defending yourself in all ranges of a self defense situation. Certain classes work specifics, and since we realize no one art is perfect, we encourage you to take all the classes and become a well rounded individual with all of the martial skill sets you need for any situation.

Self Defense at ASMA

Life is stressful, and the gym is boring and isn’t giving you the results you want. A personal trainer that charges huge fees for holding a clipboard just isn’t worth it. The workouts you will receive here, whether it’s in Mixed Martial Arts, Self Defense, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Kickboxing, or Wrestling, will literally change your life. Each class contains muscle toning, cardio, flexibility and nutrition. We will personally guarantee that you will get in the best shape of your life while relieving stress.

Knowing that you are bettering your physical fitness and developing skills that will help you be able to protect your loved ones is something the regular gym can’t provide. This is the real deal.
