About Personal Best Martial Arts

Many years ago (1989), I was like you. I hadn't thrown a kick or a punch. Martial arts seemed as foreign as the far eastern countries it came from. Yet, for some reason, I was drawn toward these arts. Something pulled me in Years later - after lots of intense training/ tournaments - I became a master in my art (2001). But that wasn't enough for me. In the same way I was drawn to learn martial arts, I felt a calling to teach it and pass on its timeless lessons to our community. Over the Last 17 years Teaching, I learned how to give my students the best experience possible. Here's what you can expect when you walk through our doors:

The Most Awesome Instructors You'll Ever Encounter.

A great teacher is essential for a transforming experience. Our instructors are hand-picked for their passion, expertise, and for their desire to teach the profound lessons of martial arts to all who would listen.


They're eager to help you learn and grow. They'll push you to surpass your limits, challenge you to rise above challenges, and answer any and all questions you have along the way.They're patient, knowledgeable, and there for you.

An Uplifting, Clean & Safe Environment. Next, it's critical that our facility be clean, safe and a positive environment. After all, the best instructors cant make up for dirt, grime, broken equipment and an out-dated atmosphere. The entire studio is cleaned daily - and very rigorously too. We scrub the matts, sweep and mop the floors, wipe down the equipment and more.


When you walk in, you'll walk into a clean space that breathes support and positivity. And you'll instantly know that this is a place for reaching goals and achieving success.


And finally, community is the final ingredient. Our instructors and facility are the perfect environment for people to come together, encourage each other, and help each other learn and grow. Veteran members help out beginners in learning. People partner up for exercises, and motivate each other to try their hardest.


And often, entire families train here. After all, we have kids and adult programs, and often parents train with adults while their children learn and grow with other kids.
