Students Join For All Different Reasons...Here Are The Benefits From Joining Our School
Self-Esteem Boost
Does fear keep you or your child from achieving great things? Struggle to make decisions, or to say YES to “risky” new opportunities? For centuries, Jiu-Jitsu has been used to improve self-esteem and confidence. Prove to yourself that you are strong enough to accomplish anything you set your heart and mind to.

Focus & Discipline
These two practices are key in every aspect of life. If you or your child experience difficulties focusing on home, work, or schoolwork, the benefits of this package will prove invaluable. It’s time to develop laser-sharp focus and inject discipline into your life. It’s a proven way to achieve your goals – no matter how big or small.

Get Active. Get Healthy.
Netflix is relaxing, but it won’t do anything to improve your well-being. Get up and get active with these FUN classes! You/your child will have such a blast, you won’t even realize you’re getting a workout. Relieve daily stress and relish in your sense of accomplishment!

Self-Defense That Works
Life is unpredictable, and attackers can strike when we least expect it. There are no second chances. You and your children MUST be prepared for ANYTHING. Our Jiu-Jitsu programs are perfect for both adults and children, instilling discipline, “streetwise” knowledge, and self-defense skills, so you can keep you and your family safe – no weapons needed.

Make Friends
There are no ulterior motives here. Make new friends and meet our dojo’s incredible acquaintances. We stand united on one common foundation – growing not just ourselves, but those around us too. Helen Keller once said, “Alone, we can do so little. Together, we can do so much.” Perhaps a friendly yet firm hand is all you need to achieve your goals!
Joining any Martial Arts program can be scary. I get it. That’s why I do everything in my power to ensure THIS program is DIFFERENT!
We’re here to help, but first, you need to CHOOSE to help YOURSELF!

When signing up for a Martial Arts program, it’s normal to have an avalanche of thoughts racing through your head: Will my instructor be gentle? Will I get hurt? What if I’m not good?

Firstly, you are NOT alone. I’ve been in your shoes. For years, I had always wanted to incorporate yoga into my fitness regime. I always wanted to do it, researching for programs online and around Rhode Island, but I never acted upon that desire. Why? Because I was scared.

It is funny for me to look back... I have 25+ years of Martial Arts experience,I run the #1 Martial Arts School in Rhode Island, am an established and respected Physical Therapist, have created my own a kickboxing fitness program...and I was scared to join a Yoga class!

 At the time, it took me more than a year to take action and sign up for classes. I take my hat off to you for reading this and taking the first step to changing your life. I understand FIRST-HAND how tough it can be to make that first decision, but, once you do it, a massive weight WILL fall off your shoulders.

I feel silly when I look back in retrospect. My fears, which never came to light, held the power to stop me from achieving my goals. We are ALL guilty of letting our fears win, even though we KNOW that, by overcoming them, we CAN and WILL transform our lives from the inside out!

I pride myself on having a unique Martial Arts school that’s unbiased, understanding, and most importantly, will make you feel comfortable from the moment you walk in. No instructors barking commands at you. No pressure to sign up until you’re ready. No judgement. You’re doing this because you want to better yourself, and that decision lies with YOU – nobody else.

Every class we teach has four goals:
• Safety
• Fun
• Relaxation
• Life Improvement

If you’re ready to join our school, we’re ready to change your life while ensuring you have fun every step of the way.
My team and I can’t WAIT to meet you! See you in class!

P.S. Don't Wait As Long As I Did! :)

Here Is What Our Clients Are Saying...
The class was VERY high impact, physically challenging, and my son was "all in" from beginning to end. 
~ Tracie A.
The environment is so positive and fun, and it's really like it's own big family. 
~ Sherri P.
It's a family... Not only have I been able to learn how to defend myself, I have been able to meet and build relationships with some truly amazing people. 
~ Aleah B.
They really care about what they are teaching here not like some of the get-a-belt-a-month places around.
~Erick H.
My son Coby has learned so much more than just how to throw a punch, from diffusing a situation, to being constantly aware of his surroundings and concepts of dealing with school bully's. 
~ Gary H.
Working in child psychiatry, I felt confident in my decision to invite both of my school age children to come in and learn from Sensei Marc and his staff. 
~ Ryan B.
The classes are a mixture of traditional instruction time, lesson oriented games, calisthenics and "mat chats”, a discussion with the children in the class about the topic of the week. 
~ Anthony M.
This place is a great place to learn self-defense. Bottom line
~ Robert S.
Sensei Marc and his team are outstandingly ahead of the curve. Having worked one on one with him in the past I can attest to his attention to form and uplifting teaching style. 
~ Guerinno B.
