Manteca's premier choice for martial arts!

One of the best things about martial arts classes is that it offers you an opportunity to hang out with many new people. Connecting with new, enthusiastic and like-minded people can be an enjoyable experience in and of itself. We believe making friends is an essential part of the overall martial arts experience, and it helps a person to groom their socializing skills.

We are a family-oriented Martial Arts Center that encompasses the traditional and discipline values while incorporating modern values to meet a student's needs!

Here's What Other Members Are Saying...

Kicks self defense is the most affordable and best martial arts/self defense program in the Central Valley the instructor is highly skilled and very effective at teaching both adults in the Krav Maga program, and in the taekwondo program with the kids from what I have observed. If you are looking to do something different other than the boring boot camps at other gyms I recommend coming to Kicks Self Defense and fitness every class is not the same each sessions and it’s one great workout.

Like the progress my grandson is continually making under the current "Director"! He is a great instructor! He takes kids/young people through a rigorous training using a great skill set, a little humor and a few compliments as they progress! Marvin Dawson Sr

My daughter takes Taekwondo here and has been coming for two years. This is the only sport she kept wanting to do and it’s not a fight for us to take her to class. I also have been doing Krav Maga level 1 and Level 2 and Kickboxing for a year and a half and I love coming to class because it’s fun and educational! Master Dave and Miss Young do a great job!
