ABOUT US

The curriculum of World Martial Arts is a realistic, yet fun, challenging system that is easy to follow and safe enough for the entire family.  Our school focus is not only on the physical aspects of Martial Arts training but the mental, & spiritual as well. Training wise, students learn fighting concepts and stratagies from Tae Kwon Do, Kickboxing, Boxing, Submission Wrestling, Jiu Jitsu, various MMA fighting concepts and street self-defense. Mentally students learn the importance of being humble, setting goals, having self reliance, self discipline, and self respect. Spiritually students will learn honor, loyalty, the importance of family, having compassion, and perseverance.  Physically WMA students have the ability to defend themselves. They walk with a power of presence making them less of a target. It is our life skills that ensure students will not become the aggressor of situations. It is the confidence gained in their own ability that will keep them calm so conflicts can be diffused peacefully.

My two daughters had been learning martial arts from Peter for eight to nine years until they both had gone to college (UCLA and Stanford). Peter is an inspirational instructor. He always encourages kids to do their best and never give up easily. He is fun and patient. Kids love him. When I first started looking for a martial arts school 9 years ago, I was just hoping that the girls could learn self-defense tricks and get some exercise. We went to visit 5 martial arts schools and the girls didn't like any of them. Good thing that I listened to my friend and tried out with Peter at his previous location across street from Costco. The girls immediately glowed with happiness and wanted to come back after the first class. I've witnessed how Peter's teaching changed my daughters. They were shy and quiet girls with glasses who preferred reading or playing violin over physical activities. As soon as they were introduced the mixed martial arts methods and disciplines, they were like butterflies coming out of coons. They've become so confident and strong. It's almost like life changing experiences for my family. I initially hoped that they would just attend one or two classes per week, but they ended up coming here Monday through Friday (sometimes even Saturdays) and took multiple classes each day. It was like the girls second home. They obtained black belts and even worked as instructors for a while before heading to college. I was always stunned when I saw them shout and fight on stage. Who would have known how shy and nerdy they were on the first few classes at this school, except for the instructors. My husband and I sincerely appreciate what this school and Peter have done for my girls. We highly recommend this mixed martial arts school.

Master instructor and owner Peter Malik and his staff at World Martial Arts are the best!  My son joined when he was in kindergarten and has been with Peter and his school for nearly a decade.  I chose this school because of Peter - he's a genuinely good guy who charges very reasonable rates and emphasizes the quality of education and the well-being of his students above all else.  When my son was young, Peter emphasized fun and ensured that my son had an enjoyable experience learning martial arts.  That then became the foundation for my son's continued interest and growth in martial arts.  As my son grew older, Peter perfected his techniques and taught him important life skills such as discipline, hard work, and perseverance.  Fast forward eight years and my son just recently earned his black belt.  Yes, earned, not given.  Peter sets high standards and does not cut corners.  His students learn the value of grit, and that is what I've valued most about Peter's approach.  Sure, there are other schools that can promise your kids a black belt in half the time, but what will they have really learned?  The fact that my son knows far more than his black belt friends from other schools is a testament to Peter and his staff.  Without a doubt, Peter and his school have my highest recommendation!

Been going to this school for 10+ years .. you cannot find a better team of instructors/staff. Peter really cares about the students and puts in the time and effort to get the student to the next level.

The front office is run very efficiently by Melinda.

If you truly want to learn and get the best out of the instructions, definitely go to this place.

An amazing place for children (and adults) to learn the precise techniques of MMA, discipline, focus, and respect. This isn't a class where you goof around and everyone gets a gold star. It has the right amount of rigor for children to understand that effort and focus are required, but all done in a very supporting and caring way. The teachers are amazing. Both my children have been students for over 3 years now and we love it.

Both our kids train at WCWMA in Palo Alto.  KJN Peter and his team run a high-quality school.  They provide great programs, but I think the most unique thing about the school is how they manage to create a sense of community.  Families are invested and stay active and involved.  In terms of instruction, expectations are high but the teachers are encouraging and supportive, especially KJN Peter!
