About Us

Apex Martial Arts Academy was created to help introduce people to the world of martial arts.

We know getting into martial arts can be intimidating, so our goal is to provide a safe and fun environment to develop your martial arts potential.

Community is a key pillar of our philosophy at Apex as we aim to bring together like minded martial artists to build and share experiences with; as we like to say: "It's more fun training with friends"

Our Approach

Proprietary Curriculum
Evaluation System

Our curriculum is a continuously evolving compilation of the best techniques and methodologies currently available. It has been developed with input from various styles of martial arts and professional educators to facilitate the highest retention and application of knowledge and skills.  We focus on breaking down complex theories and skills into small consumable sections that can be focused on and applied.

 Our evaluation system works in conjunction with our proprietary curriculum to re-enforce the skills necessary to become a more proficient martial artist. By allowing students to clearly understand their progress they can easily identify specific areas they can focus on with an instructor or on their own. This provides a platform for the continuous improvement of skills and a method to track progress over the short and long term.

Consistent Experience
Maximize your Investment

We believe in delivering a consistent experience to customers when it comes to the way our academy is run, delivery of the curriculum and in-class instruction. We certify our instructors to ensure that we are delivering the same content in the same way to maximize our customer experience. The last thing we want is for our students to have a disparate experience with different instructors as this leads to confusion and frustration which can be a common experience within the martial arts industry.

We understand the financial commitment to invest in martial arts instruction and that is why we are devoted to providing the absolute best value for money. We strive to deliver our programs with precise attention to detail to ensure time spent training is focused on delivering results. Our pricing is also among the most competitive in the industry to allow for an economical way into the martial arts world.
