The Way focuses on martial art training for adults (ages 14+) and are located in Santa Barbara, CA - primarily serving Santa Barbara, and Santa Barbara County (including Goleta, Isla Vista, Montecito, Summerland, Carpinteria).
The system of training at The Way is rooted in TaeKwonDo1, while drawing inspiration from various other martial arts as well. It is designed to accomplish a balance of four aspects of martial arts - fitness, self-defense, sport, and art.
No experience is necessary to join classes. Every new student is welcome to 2 free weeks of lessons, after which they pay monthly with no financial commitments or contracts, and no testing fees. We offer martial arts training at a price that is not matched by any commercial studio in Santa Barbara. Visitors are welcome to observe classes; better yet - schedule your free introductory class!
The Way is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization as a member-club of the Amateur Athletic Union. Our instructors volunteer their time, and enjoy working with each student and blend the training aspects to help them reach their goals.
