My daughter has been a member of Ascend since the first week of May. She says it’s challenging, fun, and she loves how kind and helpful all of the instructors are. As a parent who hangs out for nearly every class, I’m impressed by their attentiveness to every student, no matter the size of the classes, which can go up to 40! Overall, her fellow students are also kind and helpful.

I met Mr. Bautista and his instructors at World Championships. They’re an incredible team of instructors and martial artists and carry themselves very professionally. The values these guys carry and experiences they have are what makes them so respected by Masters and fellow martial artists on the world stage. I immediately felt like a part of their family and they welcomed me with incredible support and guidance.

Ascend Martial Arts is a phenomenal place to train! My children joined back in 2018. It was only a matter of time before I did to! The instructors truly care about each and every student. They instill discipline, respect, and confidence into everyone who steps on the mat. While recovering from an injury, they worked with me within my physical limitations so I could still train. It meant the world to me. If you are looking for a welcoming martial arts community that will push you to be your best self, look no further. This place is for you.

Ascend Martial Arts is amazing. I have been going here for about 4 months and have learned so much. Not only do they teach you the forms, they also focus on goals and life lessons. Daniel and his team of instructors are very knowledgeable and dedicated! If you are looking for a place to learn martial arts, this is the place to go!
