The training at Combative Concepts A.M.A. satisfies all of the appeals that martial arts has to offer. People train in martial arts for various reasons. Some individuals like the fitness and attribute development and want a effective means of defending themselves in today’s society.  Others need it for occupational purposes such as our military, law enforcement, security personnel, bouncers, body guards, etc….


Some individuals may be interested in combat sports and want to test their skills in competition while others simply enjoy training and expressing themselves in the development of mind, body and spirit as a complete martial artist. No matter what you wish to gain from training in martial arts, Combative Concepts looks to satisfy your goals through world class training! Our goal is simple, GETTING RESULTS no matter who comes through the door.

Testimonial :Hi Steve, i wanted to share some of my thoughts and experiences with you and those that might read this. I have been in the martial arts game a long time….. 20 yrs plus.  I have had many different experiences and have never loved anything more than Jeet Kune Do, and the concepts it promotes.  In saying that, I feel that  though you and I come from very similar backgrounds you have managed through hard work, sacrifice and an unwavering desire to get better to become one of the greatest teachers / martial artists I have ever had the pleasure to know and train with.  You are flat out awesome and I’m blessed to have the opportunity to continue my journey towards perfection with guys like you, Palmer, Pete, Ian, and all the other guys we trained with. Keep up the great work of inspiring and believing in others and        ” walk on ” my friend….. “ – Richard Marin – JKD Instructor and 10 + year member of the Canadian Armed Forces.
