Welcome to The Wheeler Academy
WHO WE ARE
The Wheeler Academy is one of the state’s longest traditions in the Martial Arts. Celebrating 50 years of excellence, we are proud to have served thousands of students over that time. Whether you’re a parent of a four-year-old or 64 years old, we have a wide variety of classes, all of which can change your life. Our classes are tailored to age, ability, and skill level in Martial Arts, Self-Defense, Kickboxing, and Jiu-Jitsu. We aim to build character, integrity, and courage in all of our classes with all of our students. Every class students will work on core techniques and principals required for each belt level. We don’t rush our students through belts, we test regularly to ensure mastery of all skills needed to earn stripes and belts. Our students work hard and are instilled with a great sense of achievement when receiving stripes and belts because they have truly earned them. In addition to our core classes, we have open mat sessions weekly and host various special programs like our Kid’s Combat Cup, and host several tournaments throughout the year. Private instruction is also available upon request. Learn more about our classes on our class page.

Martial Arts and Self-Defense
We teach martial arts as a means to develop the student physically, mentally, and spiritually; striving to develop not just physical prowess in our students, but also self-discipline, mental focus, integrity, and respect. We have classes for students of all ages and experience, from age 4 to adults.
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a martial art, combat sport, and self-defense system that focuses on grappling especially ground fighting. We have programs for different skill levels and age groups.
Our Kickboxing program integrates traditional Kickboxing, Muay Thai, and modern fight training methods. The class is a great environment for the amateur kickboxing student, as well as the person that just wants to get in good shape. We have a very positive, upbeat, and non-intimidating atmosphere that is good for just about any teen or adult.
