1st Class Martial Arts Owner

Hi, we are 1st Class Martial Arts.

WE KNOW HOW DIFFICULT AND CONFUSING
FINDING A MARTIAL ARTS SCHOOL CAN BE.

We remember when we were children, feeling uncertainty about beginning martial arts. We wondered if we had what it took to succeed and we weren't the most athletic or confident kids - quite the opposite. Little did we know that beginning our martial arts journeys would be one of the most profound experiences of our lives!

When we opened our school we made a commitment to serving and empowering the community of Torrance and South Bay by teaching children and adults the confidence, leadership, and fitness skills that can only be achieved through martial arts.

We Share & teach The Same Values You Teach At Home.

Our programs have a strong focus on personal development. The foundations of our morals, values and core character traits are formed in our early years. 

What sets 1st Class Martial Arts apart from the average martial arts school is the addition of our inspiring and motivational Life Skills Training program. 1st Class Martial Arts students acquire more than just Black Belt kicking and punching skills. Your kids learn the value of a lifestyle of quiet confidence, poise, and fulfillment.

What’s more, at the core of every 1st Class Martial Arts lesson is our exclusive bullying prevention curriculum – specifically designed to keep your children safe in both the real world and online.

WHAT IS 1ST CLASS MARTIAL ARTS

The 1st Class Martial Arts System is the result of decades of training and teaching experience. It encompasses an exciting and diverse curriculum of martial arts techniques drawn from the Korean arts of Tang Soo Do and Tae Kwon Do.
The journey from White Belt to Black Belt is one of incremental learning and skill development, that students of any age and fitness level can embark on.

FUN, EXCITEMENT & PREPARATION: STUDENTS & PARENTS LOVE MARTIAL ARTS TOURNAMENTS!

One of the most fun parts of martial arts training is the ability to test your skills by competing in a tournament. Tournaments are not only fun for competitors, but they also become a great social experience for parents as well!

From sparring to forms to team demos, these awesome competitions are not only a place where our students can test their skills, but also a place where team spirit is built, fears are overcome, and character is developed. Most importantly, they are tons of fun!

One more reason you will love martial arts at 1st Class Martial Arts!
