About Us

About Explosive Martial Arts

Explosive Martial Arts specializes in private,  semi-private, and small class instruction in self-defense through martial arts. At Explosive, I believe martial arts should be tailored to the individual. A unique style is created for each student that best suits their strengths and skills. My non-traditional, modern approach  maximizes effective self-defence in today's environments. I aim to instill confidence in my students by teaching  real-world self-defense techniques, as well as the principles that make them work, and boosting physical fitness levels through a diverse program that includes  calisthenics, heavy bag work-outs, and focus-pads in a friendly environment. Get in touch today to  see how you can benefit from training at EXMA.

  • Group classes are capped at 8 members, so you'll receive lots of personalized instruction while you work alongside your training partners. We offer daytime Adult Classes, and evening classes Adults, Teens, and Kids. See the schedule below for exact times. 
  • Private Lessons are offered throughout the week, Mon-Sat, with morning, afternoon and evening appointments available. You'll receive personalized training 1 on 1 with instructor Rob once or twice per week and a home workout routine will be individually prepared for you to follow at home between sessions. Private Lessons can also be scheduled on an occasional basis. 
  • Semi-Private Lessons are a great opportunity to work-out alongside your friends or family and split the fee. No additional costs to the hourly rate for shared lessons.
