Ernie Reyes’ West Coast World Martial Arts Association is rated in the top Martial Arts Organizations in the entire USA. Our professional staff and Black Belt Instructors are here to provide the best service for you and your family. Our mixed Martial Arts system is a unique, progressive blending of traditional and contemporary martial arts styles from all over the world.     

Our purpose is to empower students to become well rounded, versatile martial artists in the quickest and most efficient way possible through the accomplishment of demanding but realistic and attainable goals. Our school has been open since 1989 and we have built a reputation of professional, high quality Martial Arts Training. Our students and Black Belts dominate Jiu Jitsu competitions, MMA Fights, Tournaments and Black Belt events wherever we go. Our approach is realistic and no nonsense training and you will become excellent as you work through your color belts and up to Black Belt 1st, 2nd 3rd 4th Degree and beyond if you so desire.

Our program guides you toward improved self-discipline, physical fitness, muscle tone, poise, posture and grace, balance, endurance, speed and agility, coordination and flexibility.  Gain self awareness, self-confidence and increased attention span.  Develop better mental & emotional discipline, stress relief, positive self-image, positive attitude, self-esteem, harmony of mind and body, and mental toughness.  Achieve weight loss, understanding of nutrition.  We create an environment in which the student gains confidence through the accomplishment of demanding but realistic and attainable goals.

Our system is a progressive blending of traditional and contemporary or “Mixed Martial Arts”. The curriculum is designed to help the student become well rounded in many areas of training. Traditional martial arts usually include such traditions as bowing, addressing the instructors with, “Yes Sir” or “Yes Ma’am”, and wearing full uniform and belt in class.  Character development, focus, self-discipline, and other tenants of Martial Arts are emphasized. Life skills and respect for parents and teachers is paramount as well as good grades in school.

These classes are focused on specific curriculum geared toward helping the student advance in belt rank with the long term goal of achieving a high level of proficiency and a Black Belt.  You will be introduced to training in Muay Thai, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, No Gi Submission Wrestling, Boxing, Kickboxing, Tae Kwon Do, Eskrima, Goju Shorei Cane and weapons systems, Krav Maga self defense, Acrobatics and Gymnastics, greater physical fitness and conditioning and a means for personal and life skills development.

No one Martial Arts style is the best and many agree that having a well-rounded fighting game consisting of good standup, striking, kicking, wrestling, knowledge of ground work and submissions with a base attitude of respect are what make up the best champions in the world as well as better preparing one to face any adversary on the street or even the hostility, negative peer pressure and bullying in the schools today.

Our program director will create a training schedule especially for you and your family based on your interests and goals.  We have Traditional Martial Arts classes, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu classes and Fitness classes 14 times a week.  For kids we have “Flipz and Trix” Acrobatics classes, “Lil Dragons” classes ages 3 to 6 and Lil Ninjas classes from 5 to 8 years and Regular Kids classes for those a little older from 7 to 12 years old. Teens 13 and older and Adults train in the same classes.

We have something for every member of the family. We offer discounted family memberships and classes up to six days a week. All classes are taught by certified Black Belt Instructors with years of experience and their assistant coaches. All classes are conducted with the safety of students as a #1 priority.
