You will meet a really great group of people at Florian Martial Arts Center. Everybody is warm and friendly. Egos are left at the door. It feels like a group of friends who treat their training seriously while still managing to enjoy themselves.

The Martial Arts will provide you a great sense of accomplishment in a wide range of life enhancing ways. You will gain the confidence that anything can be conquered, either by a counter action or by going with that motion.

At Florian Martial Arts Center, we strive to give to others the same benefits that the study of martial arts has provided to us. Students learn the Florian training methods from world class coaches and staff.

We teach not only the physical aspects of the Martial Arts, but the accompanying attitude, discipline, and respect that is needed to achieve the true benefits.

We have programs for those who want to learn Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Striking and Mixed Martial Arts. For students new to martial arts the Fundamentals Program is for you.

You will train in a clean, hygienic gym with the same machines and equipment (Air dyne, kettle bells, medicine balls, dumbbells, bosu ball etc…) that Kenny and Keith use to stay in shape.

We also have central air conditioning along with changing rooms. Plus, the Florian Martial Arts Center uses the highest quality (2 inch thick) mats available from Zebra Mats.
