Welcome to Krav Maga
located in Rancho Cucamonga
Since early 2003 Empire Martial Arts has been offering Krav Maga to the residents here in the Inland Empire! We could have never imagined the level of support and response we got from all of the cities in the Inland Empire including Rancho Cucamonga, Ontario, Fontana, Upland, Claremont, Chino, Rialto, San Bernardino and all of the local cities including the high desert cities of Victorville, Hesperia, and Barstow to name just a few. We also added Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu in 2007 and the response has been great. All our programs are being filled by the great people that live and or work in the region.
People come to us for a few reasons. For some it’s to Get in Shape and Lose Weight, for others to learn how to Defend Themselves and gain confidence in everyday life situations. I’m happy to report that Krav Maga provides all of these very needed requirements.
We strongly felt that Krav Maga being a unique martial art and self-defense system would add great benefits to the lives of our students.

Krav-Jitsu is a combination of Krav Maga and Brazilian JiuJitsu. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, also known as the gentle art. It’s the best ground fighting system in the world. The Gracies for years dominated the UFC with their system and now they have taught it to the world. We are directly under Carlos Gracie Jr. the son of the founder of Gracie Jiu-JItsu Carlos Gracie Sr. Rich took classes at Gracie Barra for 5 1/2 years in Irvine starting 2006, and is currently a Brown belt in their system.When you learn BJJ at our school you will also learn how to punch and kick correctly (not many other BJJ schools teach you to correctly punch or kick). You will also learn stand up self-defense -Krav Maga style and of course the best ground fighting / self-defense in the world! —Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. This is our Youth and Teen program.

The difference was Deage taking Krav Maga and BJJ (Krav-Jitsu our youth program). Deage Jr. and Sr. come in two to four classes each week! Let Krav Maga work it’s magic on your body. Get in shape, have fun, meet new friends – all at Krav Maga Rancho Cucamonga!
Last Friday night, I was coming out of temple with my rabbi, cantor, and three of my friends when we were confronted by three skinhead/neo-nazi type individuals, who often come around to yell and make threats and insults, but had never really caused any trouble. But this night, two of them came charging right toward the rabbi and cantor (both at least in their 50’s). Thanks to my training at Krav Maga RC, even though I’ve only been a student for about six months, I was able to successfully defend myself and others against one of the individuals, who was easily 6 feet tall and 200 pounds while my friends handled the other. With the exception of a bruise on my shin, neither me, my friends, or the rabbi and cantor were harmed, and the assailants were effectively stopped.
For anyone seeking the absolute BEST combat training for self-defense in a real world situation, look no further than Krav Maga. It wasn’t designed to be pretty, acrobatic, and visually glorious, it was designed with the simple and effective purpose of protecting yourself quickly, brutally, and efficiently against any possible threat, and I can promise it does EXACTLY that. The instructors at Krav Maga RC are friendly, helpful, and unbelievably skillful fighters, and they take the progress of each individual student very seriously and personally. If you come to classes at least twice a week and put in the effort, you WILL become an effective fighter.
Professional and Family oriented. Instructors are knowledgeable and take extra time to assist students when needed.
It has been one to the Greatest decisions of my life to start this. Great defense/fighting skills, not to mention an excellent overall workout.
Krav Maga is the best workout, best curriculum. Very good instructors, it fun and quick to learn.
I think the classes are terrific and excellent blend of cardiovascular, strengthening and technique. Most importantly for me the teachers break down complicated movements into little chunks and give a lot of repetition.
