Martial arts is a fantastic activity for kids to participate in for many reasons. First, it is a great way to stay active and healthy. Martial arts involves a lot of physical activity that can help kids build strength, endurance, and agility. Additionally, it can be a great way to learn self-discipline and focus. Martial arts requires a lot of concentration and attention to detail, which can help kids improve their ability to focus and follow directions. Finally, it can be an effective form of self-defense. While we hope that kids never have to use these skills, learning how to defend themselves can help them feel more confident and safe in their everyday lives. Overall, Pure Self Defense Academy is a fun and rewarding place that can benefit kids in many different ways. Book a free class today!

Pure Self Defense Academy is an amazing studio focusing on the practical tactics of situational self defense using mixed martial arts techniques. The studio offers group classes for all ages, from 3 years old all the way to up older adults. The head instructor Brandon is so knowledgeable in his field.

My two kids and I have been training with Brandon for the past 9 years. He has provided a safe, secure, and family-like atmosphere for us to learn martial arts. Our journey through the martial arts has been challenging but the instructors have guided us by applying fundamentals of self-defense to real life situations.

Above everything, the people at Pure Self Defense Academy from the instructors to our fellow students make a comfortable environment to learn and grow as martial artists.
