The Stronghold has been serving San Diego since 2007 and we strive to offer high-quality instruction in a family-friendly environment. We are excited to announce that in 2019 we will be offering 100 Jiu Jitsu/Self-Defense scholarships to San Diego youth and renovating our space in Point Loma/Ocean Beach to offer a beautiful facility for the whole family to learn, grow and train together. Part of the new buildout will be the home of Stronghold Kids Club. Our goal is to create a community space for the following:

– Free to low-cost Jiu Jitsu, Self-Defense & Wrestling Programs for Families (Adults & Kids)
– Stronghold Baby and Toddler Care (to offer parents a chance to work out, attend events, etc).
– Enrichment Academy and After-School Programs
– Tutoring, Mentoring, Gameschooling (Learning through Educational Board Games)
– Chess, LEGO & Nerf Clubs, Arts/Crafts Classes
– Community Outreach Programs
