Why are Self Defense & Parkour important?

Self Defense training not only helps you protect yourself but others as well. Training helps you become physically and emotionally fit. Having the ability to defend yourself increases your self-esteem and boosts your confidence.


Parkour training is known to increase the explosive power and muscle endurance of the upper body and abdominal muscles. Muscle Strength is considered an essential component of motor performance and is necessary for all physical tasks.

Why should I sign up?

Self Defense Classes help develop self discipline. - Learning how to defend yourself is not only about protecting yourself against physical attacks, but its also a way for you to learn self discipline. Martial arts and other forms of self defense require discipline and dedication to be successful.

Parkour will make you stronger, faster, fitter and more agile than you ever thought possible. It will give you increased coordination, functional movement skills and problem solving tools that will cross over into every other aspect of your life.

At the age of seven, he was in an accident that left him totally blind in his right eye. Knowing that young Ismael would face extra challenges as a result of this injury, his father enrolled him in Judo lessons in order to learn self-defense. Thus began Ismael Rodriguez’ healthy respect for martial arts, which he has passed on to all four of his own children.
