Awesome studio and instructors
I went to every studio in the Lancaster/Palmdale area to find a place to bring my children. I sat through countless classes and I was not impressed. Every place I went wanted to sell me an expensive program without even knowing that my kids would like it. I walked into Quartz Hill Karate with my children and just knew that this was the place for us. There was structure and discipline which I didn't see at the other schools.

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.
