At Cutting Edge Martial Arts, we strive to offer a mixture of modern, practical self-defense focused martial arts techniques from BJJ, Muay Thai, Krav Maga, and more balanced by traditional Taekwondo forms, Karate weapons kata, and a touch of softer "internal" martial arts training from Tai Chi, Aikido, Qigong, and more.

Through training, most students and parents quickly see better fitness and strength, reduced stress and anxiety, increased confidence, focus, self-discipline, and motivation.

Everyone is welcome from new students to multi-black-belts, from Kindergarteners to retirees, regardless of gender, ethnicity, income (scholarships available), politics, or faith.

Share our goal of being a better person every time you leave the mat and you'll fit right in!
