Our Approach

Action Performing Arts

 Welcome to the Impact Martial Arts and Fitness training page. We have been sharing the benefits of training martial arts with the residents of Southern California for many years. Our state of the art approach to self defense training provides the perfect solutions for developing the skills needed to succeed in life, as well as in sport martial arts. 

Impact Martial Arts & Fitness is staffed by professional and experienced, instructors who have dedicated their lives to sharing the power of martial arts with the community. All of our instructors are certified black belts and/or fitness professionals, each with years of training and teaching experience. 

We offer fun, life changing and convenient classes to accommodate your busy schedule. Regardless of your age or level of experience, we have a program that is tailored just for you. Learn the self defense and weapons techniques from several martial arts philosophies and styles including Filipino, Japanese, Chinese, Korean martial arts as well as Thai martial arts. These are combined into the fun and very effective, Freestyle Martial Arts Program called Impact Martial Arts & Fitness. 


At Impact Martial Arts & Fitness, we not only teach championship winning techniques, but we also build razor sharp character through the inner Dragon Fire success philosophy: courage in the face of fear, developing your "success vision", self respect first, and many other traits of a warrior's disciplined lifestyle. 

Just a side note: The average adult looking to use this program to lose weight drops 25 pounds and keeps it off. 

Of course the spiritual side of martial arts development is an aspect of training that is just as important to each student's personal development as kicking and punching. Because of this, our classes are a place where its okay for students to praise the name of Jesus and seek a relationship with God (if they desire to do so). 

We offer a patient, high energy and supportive atmosphere that many families appreciate. All ages and abilities are welcome!

Family/Self Defense

 Would you be able to efficiently defend yourself if you were attacked on your morning or evening hike or jog, or defend your family during a home invasion? How would you feel knowing that you could bring a sense of security and safety to yourself as well as your loved ones during an active shooter insident? You should consider self/home defense training with us. Read under the slide show below for more details.  

Contact us today at (562)298-0751 to RSVP for our next session or to schedule an initial consultation.

Your First Step

 Hey Monrovia, Bradbury and Duarte! To begin, visit the online appointments section below and register for the Introductory Martial Arts Program (A ONE HOUR ASSESSMENT, PLUS TWO, 60 MINUTE PRIVATE ASSESSMENT LESSONS). After the assessment, you are ready to train in our basic martial arts program, make your way through the belt ranks and be on your way to black belt.  

Also, for you adults who have been blessed with the responsibility to protect and serve a family, the assessment will establish the self defense training foundation for you to take on the active shooter and home defense program.

Active Shooter/Home Invasion Defense Education (H.I.D.E.)


If there is an active shooter incident at your job, your church or at your school, The Department of Homeland Security and OSHA both suggest similar solutions for surviving this very scary ordeal: "Run, Hide & Fight!". Unfortunately, with this great advice, people are not instructed how to execute these very important steps. 

Fortunately, we know how to handle these scary situations and now offer solutions that your people can learn and regularly train with our guidance. 

Dragon Fire will be offering this exciting and new Family Defense program at Royal Oaks Extension Park (East end) along with other locations in the areas surrounding Monrovia/Duarte, Ca. on the first Sunday of each month, from 8-9 am or at a time that's more convenient for your group. 

Whether you live alone, you are responsible for the safety of your family or you have a staff responsible for the safety and security of your company, these clinics are for you. At the state of the crime rates we see today, not just in our cities, but in our nation, you owe it to yourself, your family and your company's staff to equip your people to know practical approaches for how to RUN, HIDE & FIGHT like we are suggested to do in life threatening active shooter and home break in situations. Contact us today to RSVP for the public class or to schedule an initial assessment for your corporation.
