Back in August 2012, an empty warehouse at 5050 Delridge sparked an idea to turn it into something special. What started out as West Seattle Fight and Fitness evolved into what is now Combat Arts Academy. We faced many challenges and obstacles that led us to where we are today - still passionate about our mission to share our knowledge and help others achieve their goals. We feel like what we do is life-changing, and we want to share that with you.
Our gym isn't just a place to work out; it's a community, a family. We believe that every person has an inner athlete just waiting to be unleashed, and we're here to help you discover yours. Our team of skilled martial artists and fitness experts is dedicated to helping people of all ages, backgrounds, and skill levels reach their full potential.
At CAA, we're all about supporting each other, whether that means pushing ourselves to new heights or just having a good laugh together. We're more than a gym – we're a second home, a place where you can feel comfortable and accepted just as you are.
We know that life can be stressful and demanding, and that's why we're here to help you rediscover the joy of movement. Our programs are designed to help you gain strength, flexibility, and body awareness, while also improving your mental and emotional well-being. Whether you're looking to compete, learn self-defense, or just feel healthier and happier, we've got you covered.
At CAA, we believe in treating each other with kindness, respect, and compassion, no matter who you are or where you come from. We celebrate diversity and welcome people of all races, ages, religions, nationalities, sexual orientations, gender identities, and physical or mental abilities. We're a supportive, inclusive community, and we can't wait to welcome you into the fold.
So what are you waiting for? If you're ready to make a commitment to yourself and your well-being, we're here to help. We're so confident that you'll love what we have to offer that we offer a 60-day money-back guarantee. Come on in and see for yourself what makes CAA such a special place. We can't wait to meet you!
Joining a gym shouldn't be intimidating. We will help you feel comfortable getting started.
