At Bays Martial Art Academy our modern teaching style is blended with ancient tradition to give you and your family the best of both worlds.

Fun, friendly, and family oriented. With a focus on developing confidence in a supportive and caring environment, students receive positive encouragement and are motivated to achieve in all aspects of life.

Are martial artists born disciplined and focused? Of course not! They learn through going to class just like everyone else.

A well rounded curriculum with fun classes is the key to success! Weekly “Mat Chats” to encourage and support students, fun drills, and fast paced classes keep students at the top of their game.
