Here at Valley Martial Arts Academy, we offer more than just your basic karate program. Our program offers the reality-based self-defense and fighting skills of modern hand-to-hand combat systems with the character building and meditative qualities of traditional martial arts. Our classes are engaging and SUPER FUN for both children and adults. We teach stand-up punching and kicking, throws and locks, and grappling and ground fighting.
The curriculum of VMAA teaches Shaolin Kempo, a well-balanced combination of Kempo Karate and Traditional Shaolin Kung Fu with elements of Jujutsu, Aikido, MMA and modern self-defense methods. The art focuses on the tactical and practical application of martial arts principles, which are designed for realistic self-defense situations. Our Kid's classes are taught using the same great curriculum as our Adult's class in a fun and engaging environment.
