The Cain Family

“My entire family attends Força and we all love it! My husband and I have had a great time in the Kickboxing classes, and both of my children (daughter age 12, son age 9) enjoy the kids MMA class. My daughter also takes the BJJ class and absolutely loves it, read more….

The Tucker Family

FORCA –Pronounced ‘forsa’ is Portuguese for “strength.” Also synonymous with “power” and “effort.”

Supportive, positive, encouraging and motivating……

“Força is family. My family knew from the very first lesson that Força was home. Força is more than a place to workout, Força is strength, inspiration, commitment, community, selflessness. When you join Força you join a community of people who stand beside you and encourage you to be the best person you can be. Our youngest daughter started lessons in late 2015, she is a people person, but also very shy. Since joining Força she has grown so much. No longer do I see a shy, timid young lady, I see a strong, fearless young lady who knows she can do anything she puts her mind to.

-The Gipe Family

Our Services

Our mantra is to start each day with a positive attitude. From beginner to black belt, we train our students to realize their true potential on and off the martial arts mat. You don’t need to be in the best shape of your life, and you don’t need any prior experience to start your martial arts journey. All you will need to succeed is a positive attitude and the discipline and desire to be better.

Numerous studies have shown links between physical exercise and an increase in mental focus, cognitive ability, mental alertness and social skills, while showing a decrease in aggressiveness and hyperactivity. It is hard for someone not to have incredible self-confidence when they look and feel FANTASTIC and are focused and trained to meet life’s negative situations head on with a positive and winning mental attitude! Through training, practice, focus and increased confidence, you will develop the self-discipline to overcome any obstacle.

Our martial arts and fitness programs for kids, teens and adults promote positive behavior and respect both inside and outside of the academy. Practicing self and mutual respect daily is one of the main ways in which martial arts can improve people’s lives. The considerate, self-controlled, active-listening, respectful manner in which instructors and students conduct training in our academy has a powerful and positive effect on everyone in our facility.

Forca’s martial arts programs are not just geared towards competition, but also focus on dealing with encroaching strangers, aggressive non-violent behavior, verbal assaults, multiple attackers, larger attackers and weapons all in a realistic manner. Our expert staff provides each student with the perfect combination of live scenario based training, Mixed Martial Arts and Self-Defense strategies that allow you to gain the confidence and awareness to protect yourself and your family.

In this day and age, health is wealth! We provide our students with a positive learning environment and assistance in reaching your fitness and nutrition goals. Between fitness classes, weight loss competitions, and team events, you will find motivation to take your fitness goals to the next level. Contact us today about scheduling a free fitness assessment with one of our fitness coaches!
