I remember how daunting it was to find the right school, and I wondered if I would be any good at martial arts. Little did I know that beginning my martial arts journey would be one of the most profound experiences of my life!
When I opened my school in 2007, I made a commitment to serving and empowering the community of Melbourne and Palm Bay by teaching children and adults the confidence, leadership, and fitness skills that can only be achieved through martial arts.
We focus on the personal development aspect of martial arts, not just self-defense moves.
Our instructors are all black belts, & have undergone extensive training to ensure that all of our students receive the best instruction and care.
We have a direct lineage to Bruce Lee, and teach 9 different martial arts styles: Jeet Kune Do, Jun Fan Kickboxing, Kali, Muay Thai, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Wing Chun, Savate, Silat, and Capoeira.
At Elite Martial Arts, we have a prestigious lineage. Our Chief Instructor, Sifu Vito, is an Instructor under Dan Inosanto. (Bruce Lee’s most prominent student.) Bruce Lee was always looking for new and better ways of improving his martial art.
We understand that the individual is more important than “styles”. So while we teach multiple martial arts systems, we understand that a martial art is only functional when it takes into account the physicality of the participant.
A 90 pound woman should utilize different tactics than a 225 pound man. While this seems to be common sense; in most martial arts schools the loyalty is to the “style” not to the student.
The end result is that the only students that do well are those that share the same physical attributes as the instructor. Therefore, most students experience frustration and become dejected.
At Elite Martial Arts, we do not have a one size fits all mentality. That is why we teach so many different martial arts styles. By experiencing all of these systems, our students can pick and choose the techniques that work for them. The end result is that students can customize their experience and become well-rounded martial artists.
More importantly, they have a lot of fun and get in great shape, while gaining an understanding of movement that is not often taught at most martial arts schools.
