We have the most comprehensive teen program in Marin: Freestyle Mixed Martial Arts. Freestyle encompases boxing, kickboxing, BJJ and self defense.

It’s intense, it’s realistic, it works and teens love it. However, we not a fighter’s gym. We are a dojo (a place where one learns ‘the way’). We have a standard for our teens: Competence (skills), Character (who they are) and Contribution (what they do). We aim to develop the whole human, not just their physical ability.

Students ages 13+

  • Learn to improve in all areas of their lives
  • Are exposed to strong, principled role models
  • Experience thrilling, realistic, safe and motivational training
  • Improve their physical conditioning and performance
  • Learn scenario based self defense

Below is a video of 3 of our most stellar teen Black Belts, Danielle Cohen, Matthew Margolis and Peter Felton who started when they were 4 years old. This is their 2nd degree Black Belt Test before they all left for college. This is not what beginner teens do in class. This is what they can be trained to do!


“Over the years several of (your students) have become our most outstanding wrestlers and team leaders. They have told me that you encouraged them to become involved in their high school community and sports programs. This has made a significant difference not just for them but for the experience of the rest of the team.”
