About American Family Karate & Jujitsu

Self-Defense is an Essential Life Skill!

At American Family Karate & Jujitsu we believe self-defense is an essential life skill. In your lifetime (or your child’s), you will almost certainly face the threat of physical violence (often unavoidably and through no fault of your own).

When you (or your child) are attacked, it doesn’t matter how hard you try, without proper training and technique you will panic, thrash & most likely fail. The day you are confronted by a bully ask yourself; do you have the tools & confidence to stay calm, protect yourself and those you love, survive and fend for yourself?

American Family Karate & Jujitsu is a charted school of AKT Combatives-Jujitsu. This is a modern, comprehensive reality-based personal protection combatives system; addressing all ranges, angles and planes of attack using strikes, kicks, throws, takedowns, grappling, chokes, joint locks, submissions and modern weapons training.

This curriculum is taught in a traditional martial arts format, with belt promotions based on a cumulative integrated progression of concepts and techniques. we also offers a sport application of the acquired skillset in Sport Jujitsu.

But American Family Karate & Jujitsu is not just about self-defense and fighting. Our goal is to build outstanding citizens who can also protect themselves and those unable to protect themselves. We also work to empower our students to achieve their fullest personal potential and become a life-long learner and continue to seek knowledge as a warrior-scholar dedicated not only to self-defense and martial arts training but also to character development and leadership training based on the character tenets of: Respect, Integrity, Self-Discipline, Confidence, Leadership, Perseverance, Courtesy, and Indomitable Spirit.
