Family Program

Train Together

Welcome to the Family Training Program at Gabrieles Martial Arts, where martial arts becomes a bonding experience for the entire family! Our unique program is designed to cater to all ages, allowing parents and children to learn and grow together in the practice of martial arts. This inclusive approach not only strengthens family bonds but also promotes mutual respect, discipline, and self-defense skills among all family members.

Our sessions are crafted to be engaging and suitable for various skill levels, ensuring that every family member, from beginners to the more experienced, finds value and enjoyment. By training together, families can encourage each other, share achievements, and develop a shared hobby that’s both healthy and educational.

Join our Family Training Program to experience a unique way to stay fit, learn practical self-defense, and reinforce family unity through the empowering journey of martial arts.

Family martial arts programs offer a unique opportunity for bonding, fitness, and personal growth for all members of the household. Whether it’s karate, Gracie jiu-jitsu, or other martial arts disciplines, these programs cater to individuals of all ages and skill levels, making them accessible to the entire family. By participating together in martial arts classes, families can strengthen their relationships, support each other’s goals, and create lasting memories in a shared activity.

These programs not only promote physical fitness and health but also emphasize important values such as respect, discipline, and teamwork, which are integral to martial arts training. Children learn valuable life skills such as focus, self-control, and confidence, while parents can lead by example and demonstrate the importance of perseverance and determination. Moreover, family martial arts classes provide a supportive and inclusive environment where every member can progress at their own pace and feel a sense of accomplishment in their martial arts journey.

Beyond the physical benefits, family martial arts programs also contribute to personality development and character building. Through structured training and positive reinforcement, participants develop traits such as resilience, humility, and empathy, which are essential for success both on and off the mats. By fostering a culture of mutual respect and cooperation, these programs not only promote individual growth but also strengthen the family unit as a whole, creating a shared sense of purpose and accomplishment among its members.

We teach JuJutsu as a life style of personal development and self-defense and not as a tournament.

I’ve been attending classes and private sessions for 3 years and recently enrolled my son in the jujutsu juniors program. I could speak in depth about my experience as I absolutely love it, but I cannot say enough about what it’s done for my son! A huge boost in self confidence, improved motor function, and something he truly enjoys! World class instruction, quality facility, and great atmosphere!

"Joining GMA about a year ago has been one of the greatest decisions. The Kickboxing classes are not only a great workout but a great self-confidence boost! Everyone is very welcoming, supportive, and truly encourages each other to be their best selves. Highly recommend GMA!"
