Live Clean, Fight Dirty

We believe that you are limited only by your understanding, imagination, and tenacity.  Our goal is to help you rise above your expectations, regardless of where you’ve placed them.  To that end, Ethos Combatives encompass much more than situational self-defense, mixed martial arts, or the development of targeted attributes like confidence or discipline.  Combat is complex and the tools and tactics you develop depend heavily on the nature of the combat you’re preparing for.  Our students include police, security, and military personnel; individuals who need to become highly proficient in the execution of both lethal and nonlethal solutions to a spectrum of attacks quickly. We deal with serious concepts like knife defense, where survival and making it home take precedence over earning belts, ranks, or trophies.  We teach our arts using the philosophy of Bruce Lee’s Jeet Kune Do, "Use only that which works, and take it from any place you can find it."

  • Inosanto Blend of martial arts with over a decade of two instructors experience! I endorse this husband-wife team. Get your health-training on!
  • Nathan and his team are top notch in all they do. I've always had a desire to learn martial arts, and I could not have found a better teacher. His entire staff are extremely knowledgable and they themselves are students of the art they teach, which makes a student such as myself feel in good hands. If you're looking to learn martial arts in entirety, I highly recommend you come to Ethos Combatives! -Jason
  • I've trained in numerous Martial Arts for 20+ years from Kempo Karate and Kickboxing to Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and Balintawak. I have rarely encountered instructors as passionate as those at Ethos. With a dedication to not only passing on what they know but expanding their own knowledge in the martial arts both physically and philosophically. Egos are checked at the door, so it's always inviting to both the experienced and beginning martial artist.
  • The system of combat practice offered by Nathan and Adrian Hayes at Ethos Combatives is both eclectic and holistic. Instructors offer an intoxicating blend of philosophy, tactics, and exercise and besides…it's just plain fun!!! I would encourage anyone who is serious about martial arts to consider training here. The hand-to-hand combat training and techniques build strength, encourage confidence, and engender character. It is, as the name says, ethos combatives.
  • Outstanding instructors with a very deep understanding of the arts they teach. I have had the pleasure of training with Nathan and Adrian Hayes and they are excellent teachers, quickly seeing where a student is not quite understanding something and working on that until the student understands. They clearly enjoy what they teach and enjoy sharing their experience and knowledge with others.
  • Here you can find some of the most sought after martial arts in the world. Realistic approaches to combat, from empty hand to weapons you'll actually face in the modern world. You can become more than you ever thought you could be. This isn't your kid's karate class.
  • The range and quality of martial arts study under Nathan and Adrian Hayes is simply stellar. For those who are just starting a passionate hobby in mma, to those who devote their lives to training, you will find a happy, committed environment with an exceptional bang for the buck. The expertise of instruction at Ethos is ridiculously high quality.
  • In my time with the dynamic teaching duo of the Hayes family, I have had my eyes opened as to what training in the martial arts can do for me. It is a life changing lifestyle. And these are the type of people and quality of Instructors that I want to surround myself with to inspire growth and success in my life! Do yourself a favor and check them out. You will not be disappointed!
  • As a law enforcement officer I count on my training to keep me safe both on and off duty. I train at Ethos Combatives because the instructors are knowledgeable and the arts taught there are both practical and effective.
  • Learning Kali, Silat, and Jiu Jistu at Ethos Combatives has been a lot of fun from my first lesson and it has never been anything less. It has also given my a huge confidence boost knowing I'm taking steps on the path to being able to protect myself and others from the nasty surprises that life can throw our way.
  • I found a new passion!!!! I absolutely love it!!!! If you are interested in looking for a school in this are looking at the right one.
