Martial Arts Classes in San Diego and Encinitas

Our mission is to help you raise a confident, focused leader with the life transforming experience that is Martial Arts, while we adults train to get in the best shape of our lives.

Hi, we are Trish and Ken Church and we are the founders of Church's Martial Arts. When we began our martial arts journey, the positive impact it had on our lives was remarkable. It was always our dream to someday own our own school, and when we opened Church's Martial Arts in 1997, we made a commitment to our communities in San Diego and Encinitas to create an enjoyable environment for students to improve their fitness while building confidence they can carry into their everyday lives.

Our children's martial arts program creates leaders. We do this by teaching the same values you teach at home. Our adult program is second to none. From traditional martial arts to more modern self-defense styles, there is something for everyone at Church's Martial Arts. If you are looking to burn major calories, learn self-defense moves and get in the best shape of your life, you must come and check out our program.

Imagine yourself or your child as a stronger, more confident individual in your best physical and mental shape. We want to personally invite you to take advantage of our introductory trial offer and turn that vision into a reality. See you on the mat!
