Schedule Update

New Course Schedule

Our class schedule has been updated. Please take a few minutes to review. Please note that there is no kickboxing course offered at this time.

Field trip to HYBRID

This Saturday, 8/26, Total Defense will be closed. Instead of our usual open mat, join us on a field trip to our parent school in Roanoke, HYBRID. This is open to anyone in the jiu-jitsu program.

If you’d like to come, we’re meeting at 8:15am at the Subway in Greenville, VA, off of I-81 exit 213-A. The class starts at 10, and we are aiming to be back by 2pm. Bring the following with you:

  • Gi
  • Change of clothes
  • Towel & soap if you’d like to use the showers
  • $10 cash for mat fee

Let me know if you have any questions. See you Saturday!

Family Fun Day

Come down to the Staunton Wharf this afternoon from 2-5pm for some fun activities with Total Defense Martial Arts! Kids will be able to put on boxing gloves to clobber a freestanding bag, and be rewarded with their very own martial arts belt. We’ll also be handing out gift certificates for free lessons, plus information about our reduced membership special for students.  Click for more information.
