Physical and Mental Development

I pride myself on helping our adult members safely build muscle, quickly burn fat, gain flexibility, and release stress in a FUN, positive, and injury-free environment! And for the children, parents all over the Dunellen area give my martial arts classes credit for increasing their child’s ability to focus, building their self-esteem, and igniting a passion for self improvement they never would have expected.

Much More than “Kicking & Punching”

When you train in our Dunellen martial arts program (which also serves Piscataway, North Plainfield, Middlesex, Greenbrook, Bridgewater, Plainfield, Watchung), you take advantage of the best self-improvement system in the world.

Through the practice of physical self-defense skills, you will follow a blueprint for a successful life based on discipline, focus, and perseverance.
