Summer is one of the best times of the year to train. We get to embrace the outdoors, soak up the energy, and learn amazing things with extraordinary students. 


Our new schedule is in effect beginning July 01, 2022. If you need a copy, please email Soke. 


In the new schedule there will be a self-defence class at the Hombu.  This class is included in the regular membership, or can be a stand-alone, so let your friends know that they can join the self-defence class.  This is a great way to introduce them to our school and the world of martial arts.  For more info talk to Soke. 


It is important that you continue to sign up for your classes via 


Order your custom t-shirts and other apparel from our online store at Maizis Martial Arts Academy (  We will allow (for the first time) club t-shirts for the months of June, July, and August. There are also a limited number of past dojo tournament t-shirts available. For more information contact Soke via email or text. 


As the nice weather is here, a quick reminder that at the Hombu please remember not to wander the yard as it is private property.  Feel free to watch the class either from your car, or just outside your car.  Thank you for your co-operation.
