"Fall down seven times get up eight"

Savage Combatives Academy is a modern martial arts school and combatives academy.  Our instruction is rooted in using leverage and structure to defeat mass and strength making it a great place for the young, old, new and experienced to learn self-defense.


We were founded in 2020 with the mission to be a place where anyone can come, train and achieve their goals. Our primary focus is self-defense but a healthy portion of self-defense training is pressure testing what you learn.  We do that through sparring, rolling, and competition. 


As a Savage Combatives student competition is an essential part of your training.  If you have a disability, injury, or condition that prevents you from competing we understand that and will adjust your training to meet your needs.

Boxing has significant benefits for your overall physical health. It is also an excellent form of stress relief and causes your brain to release endorphins - These neurotransmitters (also sometimes thought of as hormones) act to increase feelings of happiness and well-being. They may reduce pain and discomfort. Boxing training can assist with the demands of our fast pace lives, even treating anxiety and depression disorders.  Boxing also is a great form of self-defense.

For those that want to compete we offer that experience through USA Boxing and sanctioned events throughout West Virginia.

Ages 10 & Up.................7:00 PM to 8:30 PM   Monday & Wednesday
