What parents say about our 4S Ranch program!

My son, Ryan, has been attending West Coast Martial Arts Academy for a year and a half. He loves it and shares many of the character building concepts and ideas with his friends. Mr. Will and Mr. Hank foster a wonderful community environment with many activities and strive to help each student reach their potential. The school focus is on the whole student, not just the martial artist. Students are provided opportunities to develop character traits and positive social skills that will help them to be successful at school and in the community.

As a family we have been going to West Coast Martial Arts Academy for about two years now. We have watched our kids grow in self-esteem and confidence and mum and dad are also having fun learning new karate moves. Will (the owner) is a great mentor to our kids, always encouraging them to be respectful and teaching them core values. West Coast Martial Arts Academy is more than a school… it is a family. We have so many wonderful friends there and love all the extracurricular activities that are offered.

West Coast Martial Arts Academy is the school you have been looking for. It is a perfect mix of traditional martial arts (kung fu and karate) and contemporary MMA (boxing, kickboxing and bjj). We do light continuous sparring twice a week so you can learn how to apply your techniques in a mentally and physically safe environment. If you’re looking for a place to bang and beat people up this is not the school for you. If you are looking to learn and better yourself physically and mentally then this is the place for you.
I have been a student of martial arts my whole life but I did not reach my full potential until I started studying at WCMAA. The environment, the community and the instructors bring out the best in you.Peter Califano

The adult program at WCMAA is a very beneficial martial arts training program that teaches you very basic skills to highly complex and effective movements. Those who join the program are assured to be part of a supportive environment where you can connect to your peers and have the best instructors to support and guide your training to a higher level. The instructors have years of experience and are very good at helping you understand and perform each movement better. The adult program is a very exciting place to improve your reflexes, timing, body coordination, self defense skills, and become more physically fit.

At West Coast, the art being taught is Kenpo Karate, and other mixture of Shaolin Kung fu which are the top self-defense in martial art.   The focus of at West Coast is for students to learn the art and through it the self-discipline necessary to master the art.  It teaches students to be able to defend themselves in real- world situations and to have the confidence not to use it unless it is the last resort.  West Coast facility is almost 10 times larger than [other school], and the monthly cost is less.”
