Our Mission Statement
Our mission is to provide a high-quality program that will equip people with effective self-defense skills should they need them; to advance the merits of life-long fitness through the martial arts; and to enhance people’s lives through worthwhile personal development programs – all within a wholesome, family-oriented environment.
Because VBKA’s attention to core values is the foundation upon which the program is built, the school’s curriculum is strong, consisting of the three elements that make up its Core Ideology: Self Defense, Fitness, and Personal Development.
Our founder, Mr. Willis, decided in the early years of this Association that the martial arts program could be a vehicle for developing people in all areas of their lives. He was disappointed in the leadership of many martial arts programs that only promoted a “kick-punch” approach, and with many of the leaders who had not devoted much of their time in perfecting their own character.
Our Core Values
Great care and attention has been given to each of the core values – self-defense, fitness, and personal development – so that while our students are perfecting their martial arts skills, they are also developing and perfecting all the areas of their lives. We not only want our students to be proficient martial artists, we also want them to be polite ladies and gentlemen with good character.
Provide a high quality program that will equip people with effective self defense skills should they need them.

VBKA has helped my child gain confidence for the past 2 1/2 years. She is so proud to follow in her brother’s footsteps. She loves coming to class and the Saturday weapons seminars to learn new skills. VBKA has been great because I have two children at the school. They have this shared interest that they can talk about and practice at home. I love that VBKA also promotes core values and personal improvement/setting goals.
VBKA has been a wonderful place for my children to learn and grow. The patience and self-discipline they have learned through this program are fundamental in every area of their lives. Tremendous values and moral character are integrated in their instruction. These values and character have transferred into keeping them grounded and focused and have been of extreme benefit as they have grown.
