100% of our students who were victims of physical bullying are no longer bullied

Many people feel vulnerable and wish that they had a way to defend themselves if they end up in a dangerous situation. Studying at Raven Self-Defense Academy can help you shake feelings of vulnerability and believe in your ability to ward off an attack. Defending yourself and the family you love is a priority. Money and personal belongings can be replaced, but people cannot. Studying martial arts and self-defense helps you learn to disarm an attacker and keep yourself and your family safe. You’ll carry yourself with strength and confidence when you know you can defend yourself.

Here at Raven Self-Defense Academy, we teach a unique no-holds-barred fighting method. It has been Battle-tested on the streets, in military combat zones, in the ring, and in the cage. We teach the 3 mountains of self-defense (Kempo for Striking, JuJutsu for Grappling, Krav Maga for Street Smart Survival & Weapons) these 3 mountains of defense are backed up by transformational principles and therapeutic Ninshido philosophy.

What the Grandmasters are saying

SiFu Raven has been training consistently for about 30 years. I know, because he was one of my first students. Great student then; even better teacher now! One of the best - I guarantee!

What our parents are saying

My kids and I have been taking these classes since August. I love how much confidence I see not only in myself but also in my kids. My kids love  Raven and you can see how much that love is returned.  Raven is incredibly patient with my kids. I highly recommend taking self-defense classes here.

What our students are saying

I love karate but didn't think I would enjoy MMA. Raven teaches the techniques to where it fits into real world experiences. Within 2 nights of attending I have learned counter attacks and how to break out of certain holds. A great workout and something to look forward to after work.

Chris Franklin

What our students are saying

Raven and crew are destroying me. I'm getting in shape and they are pushing me. I feel like they all believe in me and want me to succeed and I want to grow here and become part of the family. Definitely recommend for anyone needing confidence and conditioning.
