Private lessons are a great way to progress to the next level. There is nothing better than one on one instruction from a higher belt. One private lesson is equivalent to three or more classes due to the attention you will receive for your allotted time.
Our Kids programs are specifically designed to teach coordination, balance, strength, and agility. More importantly we focus on building self-esteem, respect, community, and determination. Our fun and exciting classes are divided by age suited best for their stage of development. We offer a fully structured curriculum for students to see a clear path and have goals to work towards.
- The Funky Monkeys (ages 5-7)—will learn discipline, respect, companionship, and how to move and control their body.
- The Flow Riders (ages 8-14)—will be taught strategy and effective techniques to be able to defend themselves against larger and stronger opponents. We will also help build strength and cardio to reach higher fitness levels.

Move of the Month
Professor Carlos demonstrates a few transitions from passing the DLR guard with a knee slide, then connecting it to a top spin exposing our opponents back. We then connect to an Ezikiel Choke from the chair-sit position.
