We are not a gym!

We are a school!

Our academy is a place where you come and learn new skills and then practice those new skills. As a part of that process you will receive many physical and mental benefits. You will lose weight, get stronger, more mobile and flexible etc. But be clear, these are just welcome byproducts of learning the arts we teach at RRWAA.


If your main reason for training is to just get a workout, then we are not for you and you are not for us. You would be better off going to a gym or to one of the many (unqualified) cardio kickboxing places that dot just about every corner now and they will be more than happy to take your money while you swing your arms and legs in meaningless motions.

We are also not going to teach you to be the next UFC champ. Go to Strong Style for that, they already made a great one in Stipe.

If however you want to learn real fighting skills for real situations while getting into great physical mental and spiritual shape, and are ready to show respect, discipline, loyalty and effort, then read on…

Would you like to get in the best shape of your life?

Conditioning for the real world! Be able to move freely without pain, run, jump crawl, and lift like you are a kid again! Don’t waste time on a treadmill like a hamster on a wheel, don’t train for show muscles, train for GO MUSCLES! Develop a lean muscular physique, a gas tank that never runs out and a pain free body that can move like a monkey!

Don’t waste time on “martial arts and crafts”!

Your common strip mall karate school is a pale comparison to the real warrior traditions from around the world! Silly things like breaking pine boards, rainbow belts and patty cake “point sparring” are useless in a real street fight! People playing at these schools are ill prepared for the violence of a brutal street altercation and this is proven time and time again! Don’t allow hucksters to take your money! Don’t trust your life or the life of a loved one to made up or sport techniques.

All of the material taught at our school is used daily around the world by military elite and first responders as well as every day people defending themselves against the violent thugs out there who have no regard for your life or property! Everything we teach has been used in real life by normal everyday people, you can do it too!

Trust Tradition!

Our oldest arts go back close to 1,000 years in unbroken lineage from teacher to student down to you. If an art has survived that long, then it must work! Many famous martial arts of today (Tae Kwon Do, Karate, Judo, BJJ) were created only decades ago by people who did not have the real life experience of bloody life and death war. Trust the people who have been there and done that and continue to do so!


MMA is very popular nowadays and is a good sport with some very tough people in it. But its still a game and games have rules. Real life does not have rules. Techniques and strategies that will win a game could also get you killed in real life and the news around the world shows us this all the time.

Can YOU do it?
