If you are looking to practice m​artial arts as a way to become involved in cage fighting matches then you will be disappointed with what we teach at Messiah Martial Arts. Our mission is to reach out to the youth in our community in a way that offers a safe, friendly environment where they can come together to learn life skills that are sadly lacking today. Grand Master Barry Elwood teaches a no nonsense “Street Smart” martial art that is second to none to his students on how to protect themselves in this violent world in which we find ourselves. 
 Self-defense is not always about fighting. It could very well be running away. Either way, it is about being able to keep your wits and composure about you in a frightening situation and knowing what to do to survive. By understanding all we can about avoiding conflict, we will be able to reduce our chance of ever getting into a physical fight.
