  • There are no contracts to sign. 
  • No high-pressure sales people.
  • No mandatory equipment or uniform purchases.
  • Classes are always small and individualized.
  • Lessons are tailored to meet your personal goals.
  • Lessons are taught exclusively by Sammy Franco, founder of Contemporary Fighting Arts.
