We know that this is a trying and concerning time for everyone currently. With a heavy heart we are announcing that we will be closing the Academy temporarily until April 13th. The state or federal government may end up requiring us to keep the doors closed longer; we will keep you informed. 

We WILL still keep our commitment to our students through virtual classes hosted on our privet facebook group. Please click the link below to request access to our student only privet facebook group, for the live classes taught at 6 pm Monday - Friday.

  members can also go to the members only web page (online Dojo) for a recap of the lesson plus the  curriculum videos that will be updated daily.

 If you are a member please send us your student first and last name as well as your email address to [email protected]  and we will make sure you have all the updated information and members only password. 

Members Please join us for the virtual classes by clicking the yellow link below. let us know you are watching and we will sign you in for attendance. Also please ask questions during the broadcast so we can be as interactive as possible.   

In the meantime, solo training is very helpful in conditioning, coordination, and ingraining techniques that you are working on. Be sure to do some shadowboxing, shadow clinching, and movement on the ground. Better yet if you have a heavy bag to hit.

This is not a time to panic; it’s a time to reconnect and help those around us. If there is something we can do to help you and your family please don’t hesitate to ask. We appreciate all of you here at the Raven Self Defense Academy.

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 Kyoshi Raven and you can see how much that love is returned. Kyoshi 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.

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.
