In Your Corner Training has been proudly serving our community since 2010 . We pride ourselves in having highly trained staff and our state-of-the-art facility. In order to give you the best experience while training here at IYC, we focus on:

Knowledge and Experience

Our coaching staff has spent numerous hours, days and years perfecting their craft, making them skilled at the martial arts, but they didn’t stop there. Knowing martial arts and teaching it are two different things and our team takes extreme pride in providing the absolute best experience for you and your loved ones.

A Safe Environment

At our facility, we take pride in keeping up with only the best in protective equipment and training gear. When performing a physical activity, we try our best to reduce the risk of injury and training in a safe environment reduces that risk while providing a top-notch experience.

Be a Black Belt in Life

The martial arts provide us with certain Life Skill benefits such as improved confidence, respect for oneself and others, the discipline to make the right decision and most importantly; the courage to stand up for yourself when needed. These benefits carry over into everything we do giving us a Black Belt attitude at all times.

Whether it be to lose weight, build confidence, learn to protect yourself or just feel better about yourself; we are here to help you. Remember, you get out of something what you put into it. Do your best and the results will come.

Very excited to launch or New Jiu Jitsu program

Read to end to find out how to get 10 days for free!

This is something I’ve wanted to do for a LOOOOONNNNGG time. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu techniques and training have been in our curriculum for over 25 years. BUT, always as an enhancement to our self-defense training; never its own system (with ranking etc.). There is NO shortage of good BJJ schools in our area. In fact, San Diego is bursting at the seams with jiu jitsu academies. So, I wanted to do jiu jitsu in a different way; one that would keep with our values of self-defense first.

Our program will be primarily No-gi (the gi is the heavy uniform). This way it will more closely simulate everyday clothing. Don’t worry though, we’ll throw the PJ’s on sometimes so our members can experience that side too. 😉 I’m working under my Coach and longtime friend Nick Stefan for this program, and I couldn’t ask for a better mentor. I’ve known professor Stefan for over 15 years and he’s one of the best instructors I’ve ever worked with (and I’ve worked with a BUNCH in my 30+ years of martial arts). As we launch, our jiu jitsu classes will be part of our Krav Maga membership. That means people coming on board can do those classes too, if they wish. Since it’s just starting out, we are going to be seeing which class times and schedules work best. The benefit for YOU is that we are doing a special promotion to get it dialed in.

10 days for FREE!

No cost, no obligation.

Heck, I’m so excited, I think I’ll do the same special for ALL of our programs:  Krav Maga/jiu jitsu, Fitness Kickboxing and our Kids’ Martial Arts program.

Just give us the deets in the form and it’ll take you right to the registration page.
