Welcome to MPMA
We welcome people of all ages and experience levels to come share our passion.
Through our Self Defense Empowerment System our students learn how to overcome obstacles, the importance of awareness, and what to do if they are afraid for their safety.
We offer top class equipment and resources for training and competitions in order to provide a safe and secure training environment.
We understand the importance of teamwork and how being part of a team can help you perform better. While everyone is advanced on their own merits; all of our members benefit from training together in a safe, family-friendly environment.
We’d love to have you join us. Get in touch to find out more.
Classes are every Tuesday and Thursday from 5-6 PM

DUE TO COVID-19 We have launched the YouTube page early:
The channel has content covering most of the curriculum of level 1: workout drills; mobility drills; and and all things MPMA SELF DEFENSE
Current content includes: Warm up/basic drills; elbow/knee striking combinations; the importance of awareness; and content covering material taught in the first 3 stripes of level 1.
It is my hope you will enjoy these lessons and come try out a free trial when we reopen in order to apply these lessons to sparring and combat oriented focus.
I am also able to use ZOOM to check in with anyone and do lessons for groups of 2 or more for a small class by class fee per student.
So these zoom lessons and YouTube content should be enough to get a good idea what we teach and when we reopen you can experience How I teach and then choose if you wish to continue towards your official yellow belt and higher.
UPON REOPENING: EVERYONE USING THIS MATERIAL AND AND ZOOM LESSONS VIA DONATIONS; WILL BE GIVEN 2 FREE CLASSES TO EVALUATE HOW MUCH YOU’VE LEARNED AND PLACE YOU IN THE APPROPRIATE SECTION OF LEVEL 1.
