Find the Best Martial Arts San Diego offer here! Most martial arts systems only teach you how to defend yourself against one attacker on your feet or the ground.

Ask yourself this one question…” WHAT if the attacker has an accomplice”? Will you be able to defend yourself against multiple attackers?

This is the reason the arts of Kosho-Ryu and Kajukenbo stand out from all others. They were specially designed to defend against multiple attackers.

This is the reason I invite you to learn true self-defense at our academy.

At the James Martial Arts Academy, we offer one of the most comprehensive martial arts training programs in San Diego County.

Our training is ideal for children, adults and has been shout-out by police departments, FBI, SEAL Teams, and the 82 Airborne.

Our karate program continues the legacy of Soke Thomas Barro Mitose Grand Master of Kosho-Ryu Kenpo Jiu-Jitsu. This style is based on traditional Japanese martial arts.

The second self-defense system you will learn is called Kajukenbo, (KA for Karate and Tang Soo Do Korean Karate, JU for Judo and Jujutsu, KEN for Kenpo and BO for Western and Chinese Boxing), founded by Grand Master Adriano Emperado in Hawaii. This art form a modern hybrid was designed for street self-defense.

Both systems are principally designed to make you feel confident and safe when you are walking down the street at night.

At our school, you will learn to protect yourself against grabs, chokes, punches, guns, knife, club including defending yourself against multiple attackers.

And if you find yourself on the ground… don’t worry! Jiu-Jitsu is in the fiber of both Kosho-Ryu and Kajukenbo.

Since the 1940s, Kajukenbo has been known as the first mixed martial arts because we can fight equally well on our feet as on the ground.

In addition to learning how to protect yourself, you will feel physically stronger, build self-confidence, develop greater mental discipline, which helps students in the classroom or boardroom. Plus, it’s an excellent stress-relieving and fun after a hard day at the office or school.

So! Put down that remote and come in a learn the best martial arts for today’s challenges.
