We all want the best for our children and there is no other sport that will give your kids great manners, fitness and focus like realistic Martial Arts training will do. Choose our quality New Junior Students Martial Art programs and we will teach your child how to behave and learn important character traits.

You will find, like countless other parents, that only functional Martial Arts skills will teach your child functional Character traits!

Our Brazilian Jiu-Jitu program and Muay Thai Kickboxing programs will teach your child a healthy lifestyle and the focus to be successful this school year and beyond.

Our realistic Martial Arts will help them built their mental and physical strength. They will teach them important life skills like determination, to stand up for themselves, and to go after their goals and we give you a 30 days trial so you can be sure that we deliver!






    • To arm your child to succeed in school?
    • To help them learn to live a healthy lifestyle?
    • To develop their self confidence?
    • To help them develop the best manners?
    • To teach them how to stay safe and unharmed?

    Wstare all try to teach these things to our children but with our busy lives sometimes we need some help. The time that kids spend after school and home work are some of the most important hours in a child’s life. How is your child spending their time? Between the 1st and 7th grade a child spends thousand of hours unproductive. This time is more valuable than you know.


    Wouldn’t it be great if some of this time would be used to learn about successful character traits that will pay off for the rest of their lives? Remember, our Martial Arts program is not a sport: It is an extension of school!  Our program consists of Muay Thai Kickboxing and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (also called the “Gentle Art”). Students who train with us are a step up on others because they learn about perseverance, positive mental attitudes, self-discipline, and goal setting and how to develop them to their fullest!


    Your Child has probably already played some soccer, hockey, or other team sports and you may have wondered watching them from the sidelines how these sports will help your child to develop strong character traits, great manners, and what they will learn about self-defense other than trying to run away. Did you know that Martial Arts are 10 times more effective than team sports in building your child’s self-esteem and confidence? Our Martial Arts programs will help your child to grow more confident while building his/her endurance and determination helping your child succeed in school every day.

    But more than this, we will also teach your child how to stand up for themselves against bullies and defend themselves when necessary. Brazilian (BJJ) or Gracie Jiu-Jitsu is called the Gentle Art because we do not punch or kick back when attacked. Instead BJJ allows a smaller person to defeat a larger and stronger attacker by using leverage and technique to subdue him effortlessly!

    In our program all students learning realistic, high-value Martial Arts that will be with them for the rest of their lives. Your child will be allowed to learn at it’s own pace and no matter if your child trains several times a week or only once it will learn how to look after him/herself. Read what these parents have to say:


    Your child’s confidence and self-esteem will go up Just twice a week is all it takes and within a few months, your child will change.
    Your child will behave better and be calmer in school. Kids need a safe place to live out their emotions while learning to put them towards something worthwhile.

    Your child will be safe at school & play. Our realistic Martial Arts programs teach your child self-defense that actually works in real life


    Let me explain why I spend so much time organizing every detail at West Coast Martial Arts:

    I started training in Martial Arts when I was nine years old and since I moved to Canada from Germany I spend years training with the best Martial Artists in the world. I traveled all over North America as part of my corporate job teaching people using my experience and my college teaching diploma.

    I trained in huge gyms with so-so instructions and I trained in small places with outstanding instructions. I saw clubs where students would be taught very well and others where lots of students got injured because the training atmosphere was too competitive and the techniques taught were too one-dimensional and unorganized. That is what it is all about:

    I learned that it takes a great club atmosphere and a professionally designed curriculum to learn realistic Martial Arts like Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and Muay Thai Kickboxing fast. It simply does not matter how many techniques the instructor knows or what an awesome fighter he is. It takes well-trained instructors that teach well-designed classes to know how to push the students without getting them injured. I created West Coast Martial Arts to allow everyone who wants to learn these Martial Arts to get in great shape quickly and to find a new lifestyle!


    • The gym has to offer realistic Martial Arts- If the students are faking it by punching holes in the air or have weapons training you know right away that they are not learning practical Martial Arts that will keep your child safe when bullied.
    • The gym has to offer hands-on sparring classes with fully resisting opponents- The opponents can’t just stand there and both students can’t be just practicing Katas. Only real training will result in real character development.
    • The training atmosphere has to be friendly and not too competitive- There has to be a firm structure in place to keep the training positive and safe and the instructor cannot be negative and mean.
    • The school has to teach students about “inside” Martial Arts– If all they do is train and nobody explains how character and life skills relate to Martial Arts training then your children are wasting their time. Martial Arts skills come and go but life skills are just that- they are for life!
    West Coast Martial Arts is a very different kind of school. We look after our students from the moment you contact us first. With us your child is training in the same place as many members of the local law enforcement and he/she will get 100% Martial Arts instruction without being bored with endless push-ups.


    Our students are respectful and look out for each other in a great training atmosphere. We do not tolerate any students that are involved with drugs, steroids or gangs. That way your child can train with us safely and receive excellent technical instructions and guidance to develop into a positive, successful adult!
    So don’t wait any longer and get your child started with the training! Support them and allow them to learn real Martial Arts to bring out the will and perseverance in your child while making new friends that share his/hers new successful, healthy lifestyle for years to come!

    “Jiu-Jitsu is an incredible, life-changing experience for everyone who does it. There are few things in life that will contribute to your physical and mental well being like good training. If you consider all of the benefits you get from challenging yourself and accomplishing your small goals while training, you’d find that the monthly tuition is tiny compared to what you get in return. The best moments of my life came as a result of training, and there isn’t a price you can put on that.”
