Thank you for visiting our site!

We are writing primarily to share insights with our students and families but believe that the information here can benefit everyone! cropped-14993287_1517105201637920_7253677747286004250_n.jpgThe study and practice of any martial art are journeys of self-discovery. It moves us past kicks, blocks and punches. We are constantly seeking to improve ourselves and our communities. Our Grand Master often asks us to imagine what a wonderful world it would be, if everyone found their martial art. To better serve that goal and bring the numerous benefits of our programs to low income youth, we established City Youth Martial Arts as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit.

Grand Master also reminds us that “A black belt is a white belt who never quit.” Your support of our efforts help to keep these programs active! Thank you for all your help!

We currently provide affordable Martial Arts programming in Milwaukee.

It is more often, challenging… Read More
