WELCOME TO THE BERNALES INSTITUTE OF MARTIAL ARTS (B.I.M.A.)

The Bernales Institute of Martial Arts (BIMA) offers classes for kids and adults that provide practical self-defense skills within an energetic, fun, and supportive community. The martial arts taught at BIMA provide a “seatbelt for life,” giving you or your child the knowledge and skills needed for effective self-protection and empowerment. We offer Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Muay Thai / Thai Boxing, Kali (F.M.A.), Jeet Kune Do, Silat, and Combat Submission Wrestling/Mixed Martial Arts classes. We strive to meet the needs of all students, from beginners to accomplished athletes.
