Based upon traditional kung fu teachings, our school has a family atmosphere with modern self-defense needs in mind. We focus on the traditional but realistic self defense so you can be safe and keep your family safe as well. Located in Seminole - we are proud to be a part of our local community we serve. So, naturally we want to keep our neighborhoods safe too.

Whether you want to get fit for yourself, expand your martial arts skills, or find a positive outlet for your children - We are appealing to all who are serious to learn or just get into shape and have fun while doing it.

Kids & Adults welcome! Fitness in the home is so important, as well as having a base of support. Some of our adult members are parents of our younger students, teens love to blow off steam with us and gain a positive body image, and kids have an absolute blast in our fitness featured high energy classes.

We believe in providing excellent instruction with a challenging and progressive curriculum for the eager, determined student.

What if you're a total beginner or nervous to start something really cool but new? That's ok!

No matter what your starting fitness or skill level is, you WILL get better through training with us. Our students come from all walks of life - stay at home parents, children, professionals stuck in a board room all day, elite athletes, total beginners - but everyone, no matter their level leaves our classes sweaty, happy, and more skilled than when they came in.

No matter what your starting level is, you'll get a great workout, gain lean muscle, and learn techniques to keep you and your family safe.

  • Our Kickboxing is Unique! You'll embrace your inner action hero as you learn powerful striking, practical defense maneuvers, and develop true grit to get through the calorie roasting, heart-pounding cardio circuits. Did we mention that we practice the traditional form of Chinese Kickboxing too??? Very cool stuff!

  • Our Kung Fu Can't Be Beat! Kids and adults learn how to be bully-proof, how to spot sticky situations so they can walk away before things get bad, and to defend themselves if they need to. Circular motion, flexibility drills, punching, kicking, shadowboxing, self-respect, and a healthy respect for authority are the focus of every class.

  • Tai Chi Makes You Stronger & Fitter! You'll learn how to find your center and gain balance, no matter what kind of chaos is going on around you. By learning how to quiet your mind through fluid body weight movements, you'll boost energy levels and get a great workout which is easy on the joints.
