So Much More Than Kicking & Punching…

Martial Arts will help your child:

  • Increase self discipline, focus & concentration
  • Improve overall fitness, including strength, flexibility, cardio & weight loss
  • Improve self esteem, confidence & self awareness
  • Plus, much, much more!

… all while having a blast learning the fundamentals of self defense!

At Mata-Leao Combat Sports, we teach the basics of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, but we also focus on developing your child’s physical, intellectual, emotional, and social skills in every class:

  • Exciting grappling and kickboxing techniques
  • Basic offensive & defensive maneuvers
  • Small class sizes with emphasis on safety-first
  • One-hour classes offered five times a week
  • For kids ages 4-13 years old

All parents are encouraged to watch the classes and see your kids change right before your eyes.


One of the reasons why we like coming here is that its a great chance for both of us to get a workout in and share some time together. One of the things about the kids program that I like is that the Instructors, Omar, Ron and Mason and those guys is that they do a great job breaking the technique down for the kids and at the same time letting them have fun and exercise together.

We Develop Life Champions. Will Your Child Be Next?


Hello! I’m Professor Omar Santiago, head instructor at Mata-Leao Combat Sports (MLCS).

I would like to personally thank you for visiting our website. If you are here, it means you are looking for an opportunity to give your child “something more.” That’s why I’m so excited to invite you to join one of our FREE classes today.

As a father myself, I am truly passionate about martial arts and its power to help kids grow as individuals into strong, self-disciplined and confident young leaders.

I am also passionate about child safety, and making sure that I equip kids with the personal resources they need to deal with social challenges such as peer pressure and bullying – and to make good choices when confronted with such challenges.

Of all the programs we offer at the Mata-Leao Combat Sports, our Youth Enrichment Program (a.k.a. our “kids program”) is the most important. As a parent, I’m sure you would understand and agree.

I’ve been fortunate to work with many kids from all walks of life. I know firsthand about all the unhealthy distractions that kids face these days, in and out of school:

  • Drugs and alcohol
  • Peer pressure and bullying
  • Gangs and predators 
  • Violent video games and
    unhealthy activities
  • Other self-destructive behaviors




Thankfully, I know how the martial arts can keep a child on the right track. It gives kids the skills needed to make informed decisions, smart choices and healthy options.

With martial arts, your child can have that extra “something” they need to thrive and succeed, physically, emotionally and mentally. That’s my promise to you.


“Oliver started jiu jitsu about a year ago and has really enjoyed the program, he has enjoyed how many chances he gets to work with different people which I think is always a great thing to have with any sport.He has grown tremendously in his ability to stay focused and is becoming more organized, which I feel is because of it and am really happy that he has joined this program and I look forward to many more accomplishments from him.”

How Do Your Kids Spend Their Free Time?
Better Than Team Sports…


As a parent today, you often have to compete with TV, video games, YouTube videos, Hanna Montana, fast food restaurants and many other non-constructive distractions, for your child’s attention.

Ultimately, many parents seek out sports as an outlet to help their children acquire some of the skills that are needed to fortify their child’s success.

But, did you know that kids martial arts is 10 times better than team sports in developing your child’s self esteem and confidence? Recent studies show that programs that focus on personal achievement are vastly more effective than team sports.

Of course, scholastic team sports do have many benefits to your child’s development. However, research is proving they may not teach many of the important skills that will help your child gain the confidence and self esteem needed to not only overcome many of today’s real life situations, but also thrive and succeed.

Because it’s not seasonal, like many team sports, our Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu program will arm your child with a host of positive mental and physical skills that will help him or her in school, at home and in life – all year long.


Don’t Allow Your Child to Become Another Bullying Statistic


bullyIt’s a sad fact: Bullies are an everyday reality. Statistics show that almost every child in the country will confront many bullies during their younger years.

Ultimately, when it comes to BULLIES, our main focus is personal protection and self defense.

Our goal is to keep bullies in check in our community by developing unshakeable confidence in your children and – if self defense is necessary – by equipping your kids with the competition-winning martial arts moves they need to protect themselves.BULLY BUSTERS - 5 Simple Jiu Jitsu Techniques for Kids 3D image

We teach Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, or “the gentle art,” that allows smaller, possibly weaker individuals to successfully defend themselves against bigger, stronger aggressor. By simply using leverage and proper technique, we will teach your child how to defend him or herself without causing harm to themselves or their attacker.

life-threatening predator or situation that your child could face in the future. We can never tell what the future holds, but we can equip our kids with the right tools to face any situation.

We don’t give children a false sense of reality by teaching them how to be victorious only in competition. Our program teaches your child how to protect him or herself in real life-threatening situations.

“We’ve been coming to the studio here for about 4 or 5 months now. Chase really looks forward to coming every week. What I enjoy is the one on one teaching and coaching that he gets in regards to Brazilian Jiu jitsu and its certainly is building his self esteem making him more confident and he really looks forward in coming down here sparring with his partners, getting the one on one instruction that is really developing the skills in these areas.We are very thankful for that they’re doing a great job here. I would recommend it to any one.”
