Courses are offered for both children and adults in subject areas such as Karate, Boxing, Kickboxing, Defense Against Multiple Opponents (DAMO), Jiu-Jitsu, and more.

Gadelha states that she will split her time between her native country of Brazil and Stroudsburg as her schedule permits.

DAMO will be instructed by Terry Devine, a military Veteran with more than 20-years experience in the arts of Krav Maga, , Kung Fu, Muay Thai, Karate and other real world survival tactics and techniques.

Boxing instruction is provided by Danny Sandoz, who has experience in Golden Gloves and trying out for the U.S. Olympic team.
