Focus is mental. Punching is physical. It's only by these two things working in perfect harmony that we achieve great things. Learning how to kick and punch without learning how to calm our mind and compose our thoughts might make us a great fighter but it will never make us a great person.

      We have been part of BBUSA for 5 years. Their instructors are knowledgeable and friendly. It's a great place to learn martial arts.

      Excellent staff!  My son resisted going at first, but the kind, supportive nature of Mr Burns and the other instructors won him over. He absolutely loves it now. Can't say enough nice things about our experience here. Thank you!!

    thumb Brent O.

      Great instructors. Mr Burns is a good teacher and moral figure. Great positive influence for my kids. His staff (including his kids) are instructors that take care and are kid friendly.   Reasonably prices too. Parking is kind of difficult.
