What does Southeast Portland Martial Arts teach?

We teach the cornerstones of the Mo Duk Pai system- practicality, spontaneity, creativity, and ethical behavior. At the heart of Mo Duk Pai is an effective self defense mixed martial art. Whether it’s street techniques gleaned from law enforcement experience, throws from Sambo, ground techniques from Jiu Jitsu, or stick fighting from Modern Arnis, we’ll use it if it’s effective. So, although we have a tradition of basic martial understanding and application, we’re always evolving and moving towards creating something better, the “complete martial artist.”


Adult Programs

adult_classWant practical martial art skills and get a fantastic workout at the same time? Then we think you’ll like what we have to offer. Students gain skills that work for themselves in practical situations, not just in theory. We integrate CrossFit into many of our workouts so students develop functional strength and conditioning at the same time. Adult students find themselves developing usable self defense skills while reaching new levels of fitness, all in the same class! Fun and functional, you’ll feel the difference in your training. It’s not your ordinary trip to the gym…

Kids Programs

Kids Sparring Class

On any given day, you’ll find our kids jumping, tumbling, sparring, grappling – basically developing a lifelong love of movement through our unique program. In addition to learning practical martial art skills, kids are gaining strength, self discipline, and coordination that is reflected in their movements, choices and attitude. As the kids grow stronger, they are empowered to make better choices regarding themselves and their community. In every kids class, they experience fun, hard work and learning!

We offer kids classes five days a week at convenient times for school and parents’ schedules. Check out the schedule on the right side of this page for times and age brackets. And always feel free to stop by and see for yourself, ask questions, or just give us a call. We’d love to meet you!
