Discovery Martial Arts is exactly what my boys needed. I have one preteen with low self esteem, constantly putting himself down and unhappy with his weight and self image. I also have a 7 year old that is a complete opposite of his brother. Wiry, always on the go, and having trouble with self control.It’s been 5 months since they started and what a positive impact it has made on them. Yes, they are still a little sloppy with the forms at times but with practice I know they will get better. What I am most impressed with is what they have been developing in their character. My 7 year old started off constantly needing to be redirected by his instructors; now he’s laser focused, he initiates practicing on his own and looks out and cares for others over himself. My 12 year old is more confident with himself, makes healthier choices and looks forward to more active, physical activities.
I love that what they are learning now isn’t just about having excellent fighting skills, but having excellent life skills, building character and balancing home/school/activities… being overall LIFE warriors.
If you want something more and something lasting, you need to just check it out for yourself and see if it lines up with your family values and goals.
My daughter has been going to Discovery just over 3 years. To us it’s more than a martial arts school, they became family. DMA teaches you fundamentals as well as skills for every day life.
Best dojang in NORCAL! Leaders/instructors have a wealth of experience and are professional. They push their students hard to better while still making it an enjoyable and rewarding experience.

Moore’s Martial Arts & Yoga Dojo
Shòu Shù is an ancient Chinese martial art that emulates the movements of seven animals to develop powerful fighting skills. Shòu Shù is not a sport, but a serious, complete self-defense system employing joint locks, nerve shots, practical kicks, devastating hand strikes and much more, all designed to meet real life situations one would encounter on the streets against one or multiple attackers. Shòu Shù is an extremely effective form of martial art. Men, women, teens, children, short or tall, young or old can benefit. You will learn to react quickly, efficiently and effectively against an assault, even against multiple attackers with weapons. This is full-blown self-defense training.

“Wonderful place & people!!!!”
“Great program and staff.”
“Very hands on with the kids.”
Great program and staff. Friendly and like family. My daughter has learned so much and help with confidence. Come try it out. You will not be disappointed. You have great options to fit any schedule and the hold option is great when you go out of town. Moore’s is awesome.
The best decision I’ve ever made for my granddaughter. Every kid needs to belong to a “gang”, and Moore’s kids are a great gang! Respectful and disciplined. We’re hooked!
We have been going over 3 years and both my boys love it and their “teachers”. They have learned a lot about respect and have more self confidence and discipline. My son wants to keep going and get his black belt.
Tibon’s Goju Ryu Fighting Arts
Sensei Tibon teaches a variety of fighting arts. GOJU means hard soft style of Karate. We use the hard style of Okinawan Japanese straight line fighting and the Soft style of Chinese Kempo and that which is angular or circular movements. Goju Ryu therefore has the best of both fighting traditions of Okinawan and Chinese.
We combine jamming, isolation, and parry combinations into a single fighting form. We also utilize the talents of other arts of self defense for completeness to adapt to any attack on the streets.
Commitment is to develop excellence in self-confidence, respect and discipline in all students so they develop into the best they can be and teach the traditional arts the way they were taught in Okinawa and Japan.

“Tibons is a great place to go to get a great experience and learn a TON!”
“I love the Tibon family and all they do.”
its great physical and mental exercise that helps make one be more prepared and disciplined for what life brings. All 4 of my children have gone to this dojo and have greatly benefited from their experiences. All the sensei are exceptional teachers. I highly recommend

My granddaughter loves her Sensai and is testing for her purple belt already. She’s only been in karate about a year. Sensai also talks to the students about school behavior and conduct in life. Very valuable input for a teenager.
I love the Tibon family and all they do. I studied martial arts here as a kid and watched my dad become very successful in the art. I wouldn’t consider any other dojo. This is the real deal straight from Okinawa.
Ronin Jiu Jitsu
Address: 1010 W Fremont St, Stockton, CA 95203, United States
“The instructors are extremely knowledgeable and helpful.”
“Greatest instruction and group of students in the area!”
“A life changing experience.”
This is an excellent gym. Ernest, and all of his coaches are highly knowledgeable, patient, and humble. You will learn self defense, sport jiu jitsu, fundamentals, and high level moves. The gym is kept clean. I highly recommend training here.
Would you be able to defend yourself and your loved ones if someone were to physically attack you?
Ernest does give great tools to defend yourself and loved ones by using Jiu Jitsu- I have been learning so much.
Amazing instruction from high level Jiu Jitsu practitioners… classes for all levels of skill including women’s and kids classes! Greatest instruction and group of students in the area!
