Omni Martial Arts

No matter why someone says they are coming to our school, the truth is always the same: They want to feel better about themselves. That's what we provide, whether through greater fitness levels, achieving a goal, or simply knowing they can defend themselves.

Omni Martial Arts offers Judo, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Mixed Martial Arts and practical self-defense classes to beginners, intermediate and advanced students. Owner and Instructor Julio Rivera started training students in 2009 after leaving a stable job. His wife and friends encouraged him to start a business on his own despite the recession that took place during that time. With his knowledge, experience and genuine care for his students, his business flourished.

We are all friends, working to make each others' lives better. Hard training, great friendships and real results: thats what Omni Martial Arts is all about.

Julio takes pride in having three students who bagged the gold, silver and bronze medals in Jiu Jitsu Tournament in the absolute division.
