My son has been at Swiftkick since he was 6 years old. He’s now 17 and still loves it. What Swiftkick teaches are definitely life lessons. We love it.

I cannot speak highly enough about SwiftKick Martial Arts. My son has been attending classes here for the past year, and the transformation I've seen in him is truly remarkable.The instructors are not only highly skilled in martial arts but also incredibly patient and supportive with the kids. They strike the perfect balance between discipline and fun, teaching important life skills like respect, perseverance, and self-confidence through karate.The studio itself is clean, well-maintained, and equipped with everything needed for effective training. They offer a variety of classes tailored to different age groups and skill levels, ensuring that every child gets the attention they need to thrive.What sets SwiftKick apart is their dedication to each student's individual growth. They go above and beyond to foster a sense of community among the kids, organizing events and competitions that inspire camaraderie and healthy competition.I wholeheartedly recommend it to any parent seeking quality martial arts instruction for their child.

My kid loves going here; the coaches are great with all age ranges and aptitudes and the curriculum changes regularly so students stay excited and engaged (not always easy with younger kids!)Over the 18 months we've been going to SwiftKick, I've seen the positive effect the program and the staff have had on his personal development, and he's made some great friends as well.Heartily recommend SwiftKick!

My son trained here for a while then stopped. When he decided to start back, he wanted to come back here. Coaches are knowledgeable and still cool!

SwiftKick Martial Arts is hands down one of the best martial art schools in San Diego. As a martial artist of 22 years, I've trained at many different schools and SwiftKick is truly set apart. The instructors and staff here are attentive and truly care about your experience, never compromising safety and comfortability. Best of all, it's a school for everyone at any skill level and perfect for kids. Thank you, SwiftKick staff for all that you do!

Been training here for 8+ years now, and I can say not a better decision was made. Incredibly grateful to the coaches and the whole staff who make everyone feel welcome and a part of the swiftkick family, and help them break through ceilings of what they think is possible. To say that your martial arts skills directly translates into life improvements would be an understatement. There's always new skills to learn, better your existing skills and the coaches will push you towards it. I'm fortunate to have built some life long friendships here and it is a truly a community here, that's helping make each other better!

Great place! Our kids have learned so much in just 2 weeks. They usually have 2-4 teachers per group so lots of individual attention. The lessons are packed with learning and they mix it up a lot to keep the kids engaged. All the instructors are kind and great with kids of all ages. Love that they focus on personal development as well.

We've had a great experience at Swiftkick! We have found our daughter's teacher Laura to be skilled, personable, and very dedicated. Our daughter looks forward to her lessons each week and has grown tremendously over the past year with Laura's guidance.

Martial Arts San Diego

SwiftKick Martial Arts San Diego is a Self Defense and Applied Martial Arts education program based in San Diego and Carlsbad. SwiftKick Martial Arts San Diego is not the typical martial arts gym or school. Our unique self defense classes focus on an approach that blends the best of mixed martial arts and combat self-defense to teach a highly functional and dynamic martial arts system. At SwiftKick Martial Arts we encourage our clients to become experts in practical fitness and self-defense. Our San Diego based martial arts program is also about integrating our martial arts training for increased success in business, education, and relationships.

Our Core Martial Arts Self Defense Programs

At SwiftKick we offer four core martial arts programs at our San Diego Martial Arts studio located in Rancho Bernardo and our Martial Arts Carlsbad studio.

  • For Children (3-5) we have our Explorer program.
  • For older children (6-11) we have our PathFinder program.
  • For Teens (12+) we have our Impact program.
  • For Adults (18+) we have our Champion program.

Each of these martial arts programs are designed to train students in Applied Martial Arts, a dynamic and integrated system focusing on functional martial arts, kickboxing, and self-defense. At SwiftKick, we value the martial arts to also be a life performance vehicle, something that can be applied to better yourself in all life pursuits.
