Portland Martial Arts Classes

Select Your Class.

We offer elite training for students of all ages and experience levels. If fitness is your goal, there’s no better program than professional martial arts training. Our experienced instructors will develop a custom training program that is tailored specifically to your unique needs and goals.

Our martial arts classes focus on developing strength, coordination, flexibility, and discipline, while also teaching you practical self-defense techniques. Whether you’re interested in martial arts for fitness, self-defense, or competition, we have the perfect program for you.

Our Classes:


Kali refers to the “bladed art” and features all manner of handheld weaponry. Under the Inosanto method, students learn 12 key areas of blunt, sharp, and projectile tools. Dan Inosanto is our chief instructor who is the heir apparent to Jeet Kune Do, Bruce Lee’s art and philosophy. Tailored for MMA and street self-defense, it has an unrivaled depth of efficacy that can’t be matched, it’s basically Krav Maga on steroids!

Gracie Jiu Jitsu

Pioneered by Helio Gracie and made famous by his sons who conquered the world in both Vale Tudo (no rules) and the UFC. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu has taken the world by storm. Because it uses principles of leverage and skeletal positioning it’s indispensable for anyone of any size, shape, and age. It’s a great work out that teaches you how to neutralize any opponent on the ground.

Muay Thai

Known as the art of 8 limbs because of the use of knees and elbows, Muay Thai is more than a kickboxing sport. It’s the national past time of Thailand and rich in culture. It is also a military art and rapidly puts together devastating combinations from Boxing, Kickboxing, and clinch work. A Muay Thai class will get you in shape, fast! In a typical hour, we usually burn 800-1000 calories.

Bully Proof Kids!

Students in our BJJ program improve in every aspect. Parents tell us their kids listen better, don’t interrupt, and are well behaved when they’re at home AND away from the family.  My name is Joe Heller and I founded River City Warriors in Tigard to give kids a positive place to learn and grow outside of school.

The RCW Difference.

We don’t simply offer the most well-rounded curriculum of any martial arts school because it’s trendy. This is our passion and me along with our entire staff of professors and coaches made it our mission to travel the world and source the very best up to date material around. Because of this, you’ll find a higher degree of safety and community that most school’s can’t match. Classes for every skill level, with opportunities to better yourself every step of the way. Whether it’s working in class with partners, attending seminars with world-class experts, or competition, you’ll find it at RCW.
