Welcome to Christ Centered Martial Arts. We are pleased you have chosen to view our website. At CCMA, we are a family and hope your study of the Martial Arts is a rewarding and fulfilling experience that will make a lasting impression both personally and spiritually.
Christ Centered Martial Arts is dedicated to the development of the overall person, by teaching courtesy, discipline, honor, integrity, self-control, and loyalty. We have programs for all ages, both young and old and we would like to see the entire family training together.Our desire is to help each person develop and achieve goals in their lives. We encourage and teach all students to make God the foundation of their lives, because "through Him all things are possible". Philippians 4:13
C....Christ is the foundation of everything that we hold to be true. "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." Philippians 4:13
C....Centered means that everything revolves around Christ. Proverbs 3:5-6 says: "Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths."
M....Martial is defined as someone suited for war or a "Warrior". 2 Chronicles 15:7 tells us: "Be ye strong therefore, let not your hands be weak for your work shall be rewarded." We are all warriors for Christ and CCMA can help equip you to fight the battle.
A....Arts is defined as a superior skill that you can learn by study and practice and observation. (KJV) of Exodus 31:3 says: "And I have filled him with the spirit of God, in wisdom, and in understanding, and in knowledge, and in all manner of workmanship."
Ephesians 6:10-20 (KJV)
10Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.
11Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
12For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
13Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
14Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;
15And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
16Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
17And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:
18Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints.

"Fighting together to reach others for Christ"
Students at CCMA are encouraged to excel in their own individuality. Even though we train as a family it is very beneficial to test your own individual abilities and strengths against other competitors. One avenue to enhance the martial artist's training is to participate in competition katas, weapons, and sparring at martial arts tournaments. See CCMA photos or calendar events for recent or upcoming tournament activity.
