About Mati

Our students come to The Martial Arts Training Institute to study martial arts for different reasons, and each comes to us with varying degrees of ability. While our Style is known around the world as one of the most powerful forms of martial arts with its dynamic kicking and hand techniques, students easily learn at their own pace and ability level so they reach their own personal goals.

We take great pride in the fact that we have over 1,000 active members throughout our schools.  We believe that we are able to continue to successfully grow our schools because our students realize that our mission is to teach self-defense while also fostering the personal development of each and every MATI student. We offer programs for adults and children, each fostering the development of integrity, self-control, confidence, perseverance, respect, loyalty and self-esteem.
