  • Excellent place to go! My son has been a member since Sept 2010 and we have been VERY pleased with his involvement. He has always been a good kid, but at 6 & now 7, he has a lot of energy to release! This has not only given him a great outlet but the discipline taught & expected here has worked very well with his young impatience. We are proud to watch him grow & succeed thru his ranks.
    MMA starts with as young as 3 yrs old with their Tiger program & also have adult classes available. They focus on (forgive my spelling/misspelling?) Shaolin Kempo & Shotokan Karate and do NOT require contracts!
    They also offer a free week of classes so that you and/or your child may get a feel for the environment....please tell them Ray Martinez referred you!

    We love them! Sensei Mark and Sensei Katie are fantastic. My daughter has grown leaps and bounds since she started! They're patient and work not only on karate, but the importance of being a good, kind, well rounded human being.

  • I took martial arts as a teenager, right up until the time I had a devastating knee injury. I figured that would be it for me so I never went back and pretty much gave up on the idea. While at one of Manteca's street fairs I talked to the people at the MMA booth and it started me thinking, maybe I could? What's the harm in trying? I can leave if I feel I can't physically take it and the trial is free. I went into the Dojo, watched a class and talked to one of the Senseis. I found out that my age (59 at the time) didn't make any difference and physical issues could and would be worked around, so I started my free trial. That "trial" was a year and a half ago and I'm still going almost every night. Don't get me wrong, you will get a good workout. It's amazing how much it's helped my balance, strength, flexibility and cardio endurance. I feel so much better physically and mentally, it helps with stress relief and even works my memory at the same time. No pressure, I focus on making progress not perfection and have come a long way in just this short time. So if you think your too old or can't physically handle it, think again, you just may surprise yourself. While researching on line "Am I'm I tool old for martial arts?" I found this quote: "The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago, the next best time in now". It is so true.

  • My daughter has been a student at MMA for a couple months now and she absolutely loves it. Her confidence is continuously growing in multiple areas. I have a changing schedule and Sensei Mark is very helpful in allowing us to make up classes when space allows. The learning environment is great for young kid just starting out.
