Ares Martial Arts Academy specializes in two combat systems made for the streets. 


  Korean Jiu-Jitsu. Hapkido is a powerful joint-locking system. Using foot work and leverage to overcome or subdue an attacker. Size or strength is not a factor making this very capable for almost everyone. This style of Hapkido does not have high fancy kicks. With striking, kicking, grappling, this is a well rounded fitness and martial arts system.

Lucas teaches a lot more than just Hapkido and Defense Lab. He teaches a Combative Mixed Martial arts System. The curriculum was put together very well making everything flow together. This instructor won't try to sell you his system but he will help you as much as he can. I would recommend training with him

Loved it when the class was in Fort Walton Beach. The instructor cares about the students and wants them to learn a real skill. I’ve tried out several martial arts classes in my area and a majority of them are interested in getting your money, this is not the case when it comes to this class. If you ever get the chance train with the instructor, great stuff. Looking forward with training again with him in the future.

This was my first class and I will be going back for more! The instructors were very informative, answering all our questions and going over moves until we were satisfied.

Caren Arch 
Excellent, very informative and useful class! Lucas and his wife were awesome! I highly recommend all women take the self defense course!

My son Kaleb loved every minute of his Tuesdays and Thursdays at the Dojo. The husband and wife instructor team are AWESOME and very committed to their students. They even do call checks if your kid misses class just to make sure everything is well. They will be truly missed.

Kristen Danielle Sanders 
You will be missed greatly. My daughter Mckenna learned so much. We are so sad it's ending.. We wish nothing but great things for you. God bless
