Self defense techniques that work
San Fernando Valley Martial Arts Dojo is committed to practical self-defense techniques that work. It's not a fancy place, but the instructors and students are genuinely interested in improving your skills, confidence, and fitness. No big egos or macho toughness. No breaking boards. But you will learn how to handle yourself against numerous different types of attacks - regardless of your size or the attacker's size. Small classes at a very reasonable price with a lot of class choices throughout the week. In short, a supportive environment to strengthen your health and self-defense skills.

really cool place
This is the only Shaolin place that actually teaches more than the kicking and punching. The kids learn about meditation, making tea, philosophy and history of the Shaolin Temple. Not to mention that the Abbot from the temple in China was just there blessing the temple!!! Wow!
