Our Programs

Fun Family Friendly Brazilian Jiu Jitsu


Brazilian Jiu-jitsu is a martial art that promotes the concept that a smaller, weaker person can successfully defend himself or herself against a stronger, larger person via proper techniques and leverage. Most fights end up on the ground and this is where Brazilian Jiu-jitsu is extremely useful.

Fitness Kickboxing

Our Kickboxing program is an exciting 1 HOUR fitness workout! Whether your goal is just to get in shape, or learn self defense, this program is perfect for you! We focus on cardiovascular fitness, strength, flexibility, and self defense. Burn up to 900 calories!

Fitness Kickboxing


We help them develop the tools necessary so they can mentally and physically defend themselves at school (without striking) or on the street. (with striking). In our Kids BJJ program which is integrated in our system, they will learn to effectively be able to control their attacker from the ground. Through their journey, they will develop self confidence, respect for all others, coordination, fitness, and awareness. We also work with them on how be “bully proof”.

Self Defense

Even if you’ve personally never felt yourself in a situation that made you feel physically unsafe, having reassurance about your next steps (and what you can do to help yourself should the unfortunate circumstance ever happen) can make all the difference.

  • You will have better safety strategies in place
  • You will be more equipped to deal with strangers, and people you know, in the context of potential assault or abuse
  • You will increase your self-confidence

We have been a part of the Warrior Defense family for about ten years. Professor Ginger Mark, Coach Russ Sirmans, and Coach Leslie Steinmann have all been wonderful! Their professionalism and “no-nonsense” way of teaching is what sets them a part. My sons and daughters have all loved their time at Warrior Defense! Their adult classes are very good too!

My 2 children have been training since they were 3yo/4yo. They have grown tremendously in skill and confidence within the Warrior Defense family for over 4 years now. Their dedication to their sport has inspired my wife and I to join, so now our whole family trains Jiu Jitsu at the best BJJ dojo in Central Florida. Warrior Defense has a rich Lineage under Coral Belt Master Roberto Traven, and we are awarded expert tutelage under Professor Ginger's watchful eye! The family atmosphere is warm, inviting, and the single reason everyone stays. If you're looking to build confidence and practical self defense skills in your children...or looking to challenge yourself, or build strength in yourself...then stop in and try a class.You won't regret it, we haven't! See you on the mat!

I am so thankful to have found a place for my kids to grow. Warrior Defense is helping my kids grow in the sport of jiujitsu, but also as people. Professor Mark is absolutely amazing with my kids and all of the kids and grownups in the dojo.

Our son has been going to Warrior Defense for jiu jitsu for over 2 years, and he absolutely loves it! The classes are very well structured, and the children are taught to respect their instructors as well as each other. In addition to improving strength and flexibility through body weight exercises, they learn discipline and self confidence to be able to defend and protect themselves. Life lessons such as dealing with bullies and judging the bad intent of strangers are invaluable additions to their martial arts training. I can't say enough about how much we value the opportunity for our son to learn from such highly knowledgeable instructors in such a structured, clean, and welcoming environment. Definitely check out Warrior Defense Martial Arts - by far the best in the West Volusia area!
