Welcome to
Derderian Academy of Martial Arts

To A Caring Parent

Hi, my name is Raffi Derderian.

Many people walk through the doors of my school for the first time and think that martial arts is just about punching and kicking. This may surprise you, but there is so much more to it.

Our goal at Derderian Academy of Martial Arts is to use martial arts as a vehicle to inspire kids to be more confident and focused in their daily activities.

Below, I would like to share with you the most important benefits that children and parents get from our program. Then afterward, I will let our members do the talking and share with you exactly how our program transformed their child’s life.

The Transformation

After Just A Few Weeks Of MArtial Arts, This is What Happens...

Action-Packed Fitness and Exercise.

Action-packed games, activities, and exercises give kids a great workout from head to toe.

They get stronger, healthier and more fit within just a couple weeks. These fun exercises also help maintain a healthy weight!

The best part? The fitness is disguised as FUN! All your child will know is that they’re having a blast. But you and I know they’re also getting the exercise they need.

Self-Defense From Strangers, Bullies, and More.

Make no mistake about it! While our classes are tons of fun, we also cover the "serious" stuff too.

We teach kids about handling strangers... bullies... and more.

However, the first thing we teach is diplomacy. We give your child the tools they need to "talk it out" first. Violence is ALWAYS a last resort!

Powerful Character Development Breeds Discipline, Focus, and Respect.

For thousands of years, martial arts has been one of the best kept secrets for giving kids the skills they need for success in life.

Through inspiring stories and talks, as well as the process of learning the techniques, kids develop amazing traits, like:

Respect, discipline, focus, and goal setting.

I hope your child will never have to use their self-defense skills. But I guarantee these other skills will come in handy EVERY day for the rest of their life.

Fun, Fun, Fun!!!

While kids work hard and train hard in our classes...

They also smile and laugh a LOT, too!

After all, these are kids we’re dealing with here! Our classes are a great place for kids to socialize, make friends, get support, and have a blast.

Frequently Asked Questions

No way! In fact, martial arts makes kids calmer and more respectful than ever. Martial arts always has been about peace, and it always will be.
As a parent, I'm sure you've seen that kids can get injured doing just about anything. Martial arts is no different, however we take safety very seriously here. Yes, injuries do sometimes happen. But we do everything in our power to avoid them. We do special exercises and stretches to make your child's body limber and flexible.
Absolutely. Martial Arts teaches kids to be coordinated, flexible and strong. Kids who don't naturally have these qualities develop them. Kids who do have these qualities grow them even more.

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!
