Why Our Martial Arts Program Is So Darn Powerful.

Most martial arts force you to "retrain" your body to do things that don't feel natural.

Not here.

We've crafted a program that works WITH your body's natural instincts - not against them.

That means it's FAST to learn, and EASY to use when you need it most.

You'll discover:

Incredible hand to hand combat techniques

How to stay safe when surprise-attacked - and escape

How to defend yourself & the ones you love from an armed attacker

What to do against opponents much larger than you in size

How to turn your environment into a weapon to use against an attacker

How to identify and escape danger BEFORE it happens

Ultimately: How to stay safe & live a peaceful life

Boost Your Confidence & Happiness Level.

To learn and grow with your martial arts skills, you must develop your self-discipline. You have to be motivated and dedicated to the practice. Going to class and showing up on a regular basis develops your discipline.

As you progress, your confidence will soar. You'll realize how strong you really are on the inside, and that strength will carry over into other parts of your life.

As a result, you?ll feel happier, empowered and have a higher quality of life? and really, isn?t that what you?ve always wanted?

Beginner? You're More Than Welcome.

Even if you've never thrown a kick or a punch in your life... you'll fit right in and have a blast from day 1.

9 out of 10 of our members were total beginners when they first came to us.

That means you're in good company with people who understand what it means to start from scratch. You'll get support, kindness, and help through every step of your training.

Frequently Asked Questions

Any sport or form of exercise comes with a risk of injury. However, there are a few things that make our program very safe. It's because of these few things that we barely see any injuries with our program.

Stretching: At the beginning of every class we go through a series of stretches. These stretches get your muscles and joints ready and warmed up for exercise.

Supervision: Every class is supervised by trained, licensed professionals. We watch carefully to make sure no student is doing anything in a dangerous or unsafe way.

In short, we place a tremendous amount of focus on fun and safety. It's because of this that we feel confident telling you that while there is risk for injury with our program - it's a very small risk.
People come to us of all fitness levels. We get natural-born athletes, and we get people who have a harder time with athletic endeavors. However, everyone gets the same focus and attention.

If you're not in great shape, don't worry. Go at your own pace, and we'll do everything we can to help you learn each and every technique. Soon enough, your physical fitness will improve, and you'll be in better shape than ever!
No! Because self-defense technique is taught in martial arts, it's often thought of as violent. However, the philosophies behind martial arts revolve around peace and harmony. The moves are more of a way to become connected with your body. We teach diplomacy and friendship. However, if a violent situation ever arises in your life, you'll have powerful tools to defend yourself and your loved ones.

I have practiced martial arts under Sifu Raffi for around 8 years now. I started (nervously) from scratch, but Sifu Raffi and all of the other instructors worked patiently and constructively to build my skills and my form. Never have I been felt down, never have I felt like I didn't belong here and never have I regretted signing up at this school. I have accumulated much knowledge and made many new friends through my experience here, and it's been completely worth every minute spent in the dojo. Also, Sensei Susan leads an incredible yoga class every week. You'll find yourself working muscles you didn't even know you had. Highly recommend.

My son has been attending Derderian for about 3 years. When I first signed him up, I didn't really know what to expect. However, the more he went, the more he enjoyed it. He started in the Tigers (younger) class just learning the basic foundations of martial arts. He has since moved up to the Dragons and is so excited and motivated to learn more and move up in the ranks. As he achieves higher belt levels and stripes, I noticed that he has gained more confidence. Its a great program and I would highly recommend it to anyone.

Our daughter joined up recently and we couldn't be happier. It's a really positive and welcoming environment with extremely accomplished and competent instructors and staff. We are grateful that there is a strong focus on the core tenets of the martial arts and that promotions are earned rather than given. I would highly recommend Derderian to anyone looking to experience, or have their child experience, an authentic martial arts program with all the amazing & beneficial life lessons that come along with it. A+

My son has attended to Derderian Academy for the past three years and has loved it! The staff is extremely patient and takes their time with each individual student. They reinforce having manners, having integrity and respectfulness towards others. My husband and I would strongly recommend to Derderian Academy to any young girl or boy who is interested!
