About Us

It’s a Jungle Out There.

All anyone has to do is watch the news or go on Facebook for a moment to see that our everyday world is getting pretty wild. Burying your head in the sand is not the solution. Getting prepared with some solid training...is


Get the Edge 

Genuine, old school training that will evoke real confidence, peace of mind and a general feeling of being empowered. Through genuine hard work, sacrifice, and dedication, when you’re around everyone else will be a little safer.


A Simple Approach to Self Defense  

While many schools try to give you Chess when all you need is Checkers, we keep it simple. Our "Rock - Paper - Scissors" approach will get you up to speed...right now. The simpler the system, the faster you get results. 

But I love chess  

Because Rock - Paper - Scissors is quick to learn, you’ll catch on quickly.  You may want more. When you’re ready, we’ll bring out Checkers. When you’ve mastered that, and if you still want more, we have Chess games that will blow your mind. 

Our Program  

Many schools and instructors teach by the seat of their pants. Many times there is no rhyme nor reason to what is taught in each class. It can be frustrating and hard to follow. Not here. Our systemized, paint-by-numbers curriculum starts at the very beginning and builds logically. Follow along with our Training Workbook for unmatched progress and understanding.

Zero Ego Training  

Many groups have issues with egotistical or dominating students. We do not. Our small focused classes, personalized instruction and proprietary teaching method completely eliminate this. You will experience fun, humble and skilled people who are here to help you. 

Not For Everyone to Like.

For the Few to Love.   

LA Combatives is a place for people who really want to learn to become Leaders and Fighters. It is a place to become Physically and Mentally Strong and Flexible. LA Combatives is a place to Get on the Path and gain the Peace of Mind and Humility that comes with the Warrior Mindset. 

This training may not be for you. If you are looking for the next fun "cardio kickboxing" class, this is not it. Our classes are really fun, and really challengingYou need to be comfortable being uncomfortable. We do not adjust our standards to make it easier for students to pass. Instead, we set the highest standards and lead each student up to that level. Moving forward with hard earned confidence, you will thank yourself for not taking the easy path. To us, this kind of training is as fun as it gets.

Are Private Lessons Available?

In our 28 years of training, our experience says the absolute best way to train is one on one or with very small groups.  Our class size is typically 1 to 6 people with the average class size of 4.  Our focus is on hand building each dedicated student, not filling our class with as many students as possible.

Our Facility

Our Group trains in a Private, well appointed Garage. We have mats, pads, sticks, training swords & knives, and anything else that is necessary for realistic and effective training. Training is intimate, personalized, and we pride ourselves on having a clean and organized training space.
