Chief Instructor is Grandmaster Master Chris

Master Chris has been studying martial arts since he was four. In fact, he’s trained under numerous grandmasters, including his own father who founded our studio. He’s taken his lifelong passion and shared it with everyone who’s visited Yi’s Martial Arts Fitness Academy. They offer a variety of classes and programs for all ages and levels, and we are always looking for new ways to help our students reach their goals.


Q Will My Child Become A Bully?

A specific part of our preschool and kids martial arts classes at YI'S Martial Arts Fitness Academy is teaching respect, and teaching when to use their new self defense training and when to NOT use them. We find that our students become more confident to stand up to bullies. And have more humility and kindness to others through their martial arts lessons.

Q What are the requirements for enrollment?

The requirements for enrollment will vary depending on the martial art and the age group. However, some general requirements may include:
1. Being in good physical condition
2. Being able to follow directions
3.Being respectful of others
4.Being willing to learn and practice

Q Are Parents Allowed To Watch?

We encourage parents to watch their children in their kids martial arts lessons. We love parents getting involved! And so do their kids. Even better… join into some of our martial arts classes for adults. Your kids will love that you have something in common. It will build a strong family bond!
Additionally, if you wanted some ‘me-time’? Simply drop them off, and go grab a coffee. They will greet you with a huge smile when you return, because they had SO much fun!
