Modern Day Ninja Training

MMA and Parkour Classes Reimagined

At the Nexus we specialize in teaching Guardian Art. Guardian Art takes MMA and parkour, and fuses it back together like how ancient training once was.  We then built state of the art facilities to take it to the future.

Use the slide show above to learn more about Guardian Art classes.  Better yet, come to open floor or try out for $10.


Obstacle Course Training

Parkour & Ninja Warrior fans will love learning how to climb towers, fly across gaps, and move swiftly over objects. (Ages 3+)


Begin to move like your favorite super hero with flips, spins, and creative movement. (Ages 5+)


We take striking and grappling to a different dimension from MMA by fusing it with acrobatics and obstacle courses. (Ages 7+)

Sword Fighting

Calling all aspiring Jedi or Ninjas, we wield the sword in a very sacred way…fighting and moving with it through obstacles. (Ages 13+)

Adult Classes: Making Smarter Moves

As we get older, we begin to blame age for our physical decline.  Truth is, no matter what age you are, your body will decline as long as you don't use it.  Guardian Art will not only help you stay fit, but you can offset that aging decline by learning smarter and more efficient ways to move your body.  We'll start you at a level you can handle and build from there.  So no... you are not too old to join.  Register to try out today!

Teen Classes: Evolution

It is through trials and tribulations that you evolve into the better you.  Whether it's learning a parkour move or having a fist thrown at you, you will face fear and you will learn to overcome it.  Try out to begin. 

Kids Classes: Nurturing Nature

Kids naturally play by jumping, climbing, and pretending to be super heroes. So not only do kids love Guardian Art, parents love it because their kids learn how to do all those things in a safer manner and in a safer environment. You can only imagine how eyes light up when kids enter our Nexuses. Have your kids try out today!

More of a jungle than a gym

Martial arts schools have been around for ages, but none offer training grounds like our Nexuses.  We chose the name Nexus, because it is a hub for so many different types of training such as parkour, freerunning, tricking, calisthenics, kickboxing, jiu-jitsu, and ninja warrior. It’s like an indoor theme park for ninjas.

Moveable Blocks and Padded Towers

Built for training parkour or preparing for obstacle races like Tough Mudder, Ninja Warrior, or the Spartan Race, no other parkour gyms match the safety of a Nexus. We went to the extremes of padding everything up.


Whether you're a monkey or into calisthenics, our bar setup is so fun you won't mind getting blisters. And don't be surprised if you see targets hanging from them to train strikes on swinging objects.


A tricking and freerunning dream! Check out this new technology that makes foam pits a thing of the past.
