Welcome To Our School

Real Martial Arts for Real Life

We teach Combat Jeet Kune Do, a Mixed Martial Art designed for the street and for real life confrontations. It is a powerful blended combat system that utilizes the philosophy, and fighting concepts and methods of Bruce Lee’s Jeet Kune Do, enhanced with Ip Man’s Wing Chun, Chinese San Shou Gung Fu, South East Asian Kuntao Silat, Filipino Warrior Art of Kali, the Grappling Art of Jiu Jitsu, as well as the Internal Art of Tai Chi.

Our MMA System, “Combat JKD”, is comprehensive, functional, realistic, and perfectly suited for today’s modern environment.

We offer separate classes for adults, youth, and children. No katas or forms are required. Everything we teach is functional and practical.

It is our true belief that each individual has the right to self-defense and self-preservation. Our training goes far beyond the acquisition of elementary fighting skills. We teach a no-nonsense, comprehensive combat system that is perfectly suited for today's modern environment.

We are not a belt factory. We are not a tournament school. We are not an exhibition art. Our Gung Fu, Kali, Silat, and Jiu Jitsu are for real! Our Combat Jeet Kune Do System is functional, realistic, and practical. We teach a true fighting art in a safe, controlled, positive environment. We prepare you for the street and for real life confrontations.

The JKD-MMA curriculum that we teach consists of several battle tested traditional warrior arts cohesively blended to create a superior combat system that focuses on realistic effective fighting applications and practical self-defense. This is an authentic warrior art with current concepts and methods of teaching, practiced in a safe controlled environment.

No martial arts experience or special physical abilities are required. All you need is consistent attendance and the desire to learn and you will gradually develop into an effective well-rounded fighter in all ranges of combat in both empty hand and weapon. You will learn striking and grappling, stand up and ground as well as weapon fighting and defense.

Demonstrate your commitment by attending on a regular basis and we will work with you on developing real fighting skills that will stay with you for life. Through regular practice and attendance, you will gain the confidence and peace of mind that comes from knowing that you have the ability to effectively defend yourself and loved ones if needed.

As you continue to advance in your training and begin to gain a deeper understanding of the art's philosophy, you will realize that you have chosen a true warrior's path that will empower you, help you lead a positive way of life, and be more in harmony with mind, body, and spirit.

In addition to Martial Arts Classes we also offer programs in the areas of self-defense, and health and fitness, such as traditional Tai Chi for adults, and Women’s Self-Defense.

Specialized training is also available for law enforcement, security personnel, teachers and school administrators. Additional customized programs can be developed based on request and demand.

... The Journey of a Thousand Miles Begins with a Single Step ...


I took Kenpo in high school, but could not continue after going off to college. I had an interest in getting back into some style of martial arts, especially once I started working as a police officer. Unfortunately, life’s demands caused me to put it off for several more years. I finally decided to research different schools, and different styles of martial arts. I wanted to learn a style that was practical and useful in real life and (law enforcement) situations. I looked into several schools in Medina and Summit counties. After finding the Combat CFMA website, meeting with Sifu Louis, and visiting the school, I knew I found what I was looking for. First, the system that Sifu Louis teaches is perfect for all aspects and ranges of combat. I have learned stand up and ground fighting, as well as weapons fighting and defenses, since the first class. The styles and movements are scientific, yet so simplistic and economic. More importantly, they work! I have effectively used techniques and skills at work without having to think about it. Second, Sifu Louis has a heart of gold and truly cares about each person’s ability to protect themselves. He is a huge supporter of the law enforcement community and understands the types of combat situations we face. I’m truly grateful for finding Combat CFMA. My only regret is not finding it sooner.

I have been studying under Sifu Louis for over 6 years. I was looking for a fighting style that translates well to a real life combat scenario. Combat CFMA is so much more than I expected. As a student, we are trained in all ranges of combat and prepared for multiple attackers. Sifu’s unique style has taught me striking, trapping, grappling, locking and takedown skills. I am 57 years old so you are not too old to learn! The skills translate well at any age. Sifu is very impressive as an instructor accredited in multiple martial arts, but is also a great person reflected in the spirit in which he teaches. All skills are taught in a safe environment regardless of gender, age or skill set. I am so happy that I gave Combat CFMA a try. I achieved my black belt this year and have made many friends along the way. If you want to learn an art that prepares you for real life, come in for a visit. You will have fun, learn a great skill and develop friendships too.

Rehabbing and getting back to normal daily activities has been difficult for me after spinal surgery. I have found that Tai Chi works my mind and body through slow, gentle, constant motion. Under Sifu Kamille Louis’ instruction, using progressive muscle relaxation, meditative deep breathing and strengthening stances of Tai Chi, I am stronger, more flexible, have better balance and endurance. Most important to me is I have less pain and stiffness as the movements restore my mind and body connection.

When looking for a place to begin training in martial arts, my husband and I looked at several places, and really liked what we saw with the unique style of training at Combat CFMA. I started with my husband in the adult class, and our children started in the youth class. At first, I was intimidated and did not know if this was something I would be able learn. But with the expert help and advice of Sifu Louis, I found myself addicted, and martial arts quickly became a huge part of our lives. I can't say enough good things about Sifu Louis and his combat system. The styles he teaches are practical and realistic for all ranges of fighting, including weapons. The skills I, and my children, have learned have given us greater confidence and improved our self-esteem. His system is very empowering for women and children, and I now trust my abilities to defend myself. Sifu Louis has a great way of making the kids' class fun while also teaching discipline. I like that he always stresses safety while learning so that no one gets hurt while training. If you have the desire to learn, and better yourself mentally and physically, Sifu Louis, and the rest of the Combat CFMA family will provide you with the tools to achieve that.

Since starting Tai Chi with Sifu Louis I’ve noticed my strength, balance and mobility have been improving. I feel re-energized. I walk out of my session feeling refreshed. It’s like I took 30 years off my age! I love this Tai Chi class!

Sifu Louis and Guro Brenda- we want to thank you for being such excellent teachers. Your love and patience show through in everything you do. We not only consider you teachers but also friends of our family. Meera is loving her class. Just recently she said, "The teachers are so nice. Only 4 more sleeps and then I go to Lil Ninjas!". She is so excited!

This is a remarkable martial arts class, one where you can learn some of the best fighting techniques available and excel regardless of your natural coordination levels or prior experience. The Louis Kali Combat System is tailor made to fit the individual’s body mechanics and natural flow of energy. Learning this system has greatly improved my overall confidence as well as being a great way to stay in shape and reduce daily work stress.

Sifu Louis Kali Combat System is the most effective and complete martial art system that I have ever trained in. It is highly practical and deals with the real world. It offers realistic solutions to real life confrontations. The training spans from simple self-defense moves to sophisticated wooden dummy form and techniques. The best thing that I love about the art is that it is very versatile and it covers all ranges of fighting in empty hand as well as weapon, and Sifu maintains a reality-based approach to training and implementation at all times in every class. In my opinion, there is nowhere else you can experience this type of full spectrum of martial arts training.

Sifu Louis has taught me not only martial arts and Kali Combat, but also what loyalty, respect, and trust really mean. There has only been a very few select people that has had an influence in my life and I am proud to say Sifu Louis is one of them. I cannot express enough how much influence he has had on me and my family. I am both thankful and humbled to call Sifu Louis my teacher and my friend.
