Integrated Martial Arts & Fitness (IMAF) - committed to providing the most effective self-defense program available!

Have you thought about training in a specific style of Martial Arts? How about three or more?!

IMAF combines the best of different styles giving students the skills they need to protect themselves in virtually any situation - and become incredibly fit in the process!

Training in Jeet Kune Do, Muay Thai kickboxing, Eskrima and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu provides you with a well-balanced, effective self-defense system.

Not sure what these styles are or how you would benefit from training?

  • Jeet Kune Do – founded by Bruce Lee, this style uses the best of all Martial Arts styles. Plus, it’s basically the foundation for modern MMA!
  • Muay Thai Kickboxing – turn your body into a weapon! Total body workout doesn’t even begin to describe the amazing fitness benefits of this style!
  • Eskrima/ Filipino Martial Arts – weaponry training at its finest! You’ll learn fluid and dynamic flows utilizing sticks as an extension of your body for maximum impact.
  • Brazilian Jiu Jitsu – not all self-defense moves are in the form of stand up techniques. This style teaches you how to master ground control no matter what size your opponent is!

Friendly and helpful staff help make your training experience at IMAF a rewarding one! Each and every staff member has been trained by Grand Master Don Edwards and possess in depth knowledge to answer you questions and help you in your training.
