Valhalla Martial Arts, Kickboxing, And Fitness

Santa Barbara's Destination Training Gym for Over 20 Years

We're proud to have nationally-certified instructors, a supportive and passionate community, and a safe training environment where kids and parents alike can enjoy learning Jiu Jitsu, Kung Fu, and other martial arts together! We encourage our students to remain physically fit, maintain self-discipline, and spend the majority of each class on technique -- we want to provide high-quality instruction but also make sure that training is fun!

At Valhalla Martial Arts, Kickboxing, & Fitness, our goal is to teach you or your children the intricacies of various martial arts while improving your confidence and instilling a powerful sense of purpose. Head instructor and founder Michael Mac Donald was a professional kickboxer and MMA fighter when he realized his true passion was in teaching people the skills that he’d spent years perfecting. That’s when he decided to start training and coaching students. As it turns out, there’s nothing more fulfilling than watching a member’s progress. At Valhalla MMA Kickboxing & Fitness, we’re masters of many trades. Our instructors also strive to uplift you, support you on and off the mats, and to help you become the best you can be.

If you're curious about Martial Arts or Fitness training, we're happy to sit down and talk about how fitness, self-defense skills, unwavering confidence, and pure fun all come together to craft an incredible training experience.
