Who the Fighting System is For

Protecting yourself from those who might do you harm has no age, gender, or fitness-level bias. The ability to improve your situation when you find yourself in a bad one is not just for people of a certain age, gender or fitness level. Everyone deserves the ability to improve their defenses.

The C.O.B.R.A. Philosophy

Based on much the same philosophy as the highly unique & effective C.O.B.R.A.™ reality self-defense 10 week academy, the C.O.B.R.A. Fighting System focuses on techniques that are designed to protect you & your loved ones in real life -- when there are no refs, rules or 3 minute rounds.

This program teaches martial arts not as a points- or rules-based sport, but instead as a method to handle real-world conflicts.

This program benefits from Chris Sutton's extensive black belt expertise in karate, kickboxing, aikido, kungfu, jujitsu & his training with world champions. But it also benefits from being tested in ways that most never experience. Where what works and what doesn't out in the real world affects people's safety & becomes apparent very quickly.

Chris' experiences in his law enforcement & corrections careers has put Chris & his techniques up against real-world criminals in real-life situations. Combined with his extensive martial arts expertise, this tested-in-the-field knowledge makes the programs he has developed extremely unique and effective.

What Students Say

  • "They have exceeded all my expectations and continue to confirm the choice I made was great. They go above and beyond for their students and create an atmosphere of camaraderie amongst the students both youth and adult."

    Steve Janic

  • "This has been one of the best decisions that my family has made as a family in many years. We signed up for the C.O.B.R.A. Defense class and while waiting for the actual class to start we were allowed to join the Mixed Martial Arts Classes, and we did. The training and instruction along with the atmosphere that is created by training staff and students is very family oriented and creates a great learning environment for both the adults and children.

    "As a veteran Marine and an active police officer this is the first training that is formatted for all walks of life and is realistic so that it can be utilized by my children, my wife, or myself on the job. It is a great workout which allows you to be comfortable with your abilities, but challenges you to excel at your own peak levels. It has been such a blessing to my wife and boys that we signed up for the other classes available and have introduced many others. By far the best decision you will make, give them a call."

    Jon Walser, Police Officer

  • "One of the best things I ever did was sign up for their C.O.B.R.A. self-defense course. I liked it so much I signed up to continue with their martial arts program. I've never been one to join in group activities, but this place has such a positive atmosphere. I thoroughly enjoy it. The instructors are great, and so are the other students I've met. I would recommend it to anyone. It's an investment in your health and well-being that will pay big dividends for you."

    Julie Gallhager, Marketing Consultant

  • "I love this place! I started out with UBC then C.O.B.R.A. then Martial Arts. I have just earned my green belt & become a lifetime member. It is a great bunch of people that you get to spend time around. The only problem I see is that the growth is taking over the space but everyone is generous & willing to move over a little. They are looking for more space in the future.

    "The martial arts is a mix of Karate, Aikido & Kickboxing. When I first signed up for UBC & C.O.B.R.A. I did not know that at all. It was a happy surprise since I have wanted to learn Aikido for a long time & never got responses from the dojos in this area.

    "This a good place to come, no matter what your skill & confidence level. You will become more skilled & more confident. The people here believe in what they are teaching & are not out for glory. Positive support, proper motivation & respect."
