Grandmaster Art and Master Melissa Hinkelbein are a husband and wife team in the business of changing lives. We are dedicated to helping you achieve your personal best whatever your age or goals for training may be. When you become a student of ours, you will be exactly that.

There is no greater reward than watching a person’s life transform, knowing we are part of the process. When you train with us you’re more than a student, you’re family.

Receive Personalized Instruction from Elite Martial Artists

We pride ourselves in our personalized instruction and dedication to each student’s individual needs. Taking the time to really know each student is the key to their success. With our many combined years of experience, we believe strongly in our “if you want it, earn it” style of teaching. We feed off each other and it brings a unique balance into the school and onto the mat. What we do goes way beyond martial arts, it’s about life. It’s about creating character, helping others find themselves and setting them up for success. Teaching from the heart is the only way we know and the only way we’ll ever do it.

Learn a Practical, Well-Rounded Self Defense System

We are known for our success in developing students who are proficient in multiple areas of self defense including blocking, striking, takedowns, grappling and submission whatever their age, size or skill level may be. Our versatile mixed martial arts curriculum is designed to be effective in real life situations. Students are taught the most practical and effective elements of various martial arts disciplines including Jiu Jitsu, Aikido, Karate, Muay Thai, Boxing and Kickboxing, along with our own concepts and ideas, in one complete program.

Train in a Safe, Friendly Environment

We maintain a positive learning environment where students help each other reach their goals. We train hard but train with control. Our students have a strong camaraderie and share mutual respect for one another. We are a family school.
