Welcome! My name is Gerry DiSanto I’m the Owner and Chief Instructor at Defensive Arts Training Centre and a High School Teacher in St. Catharines. It was my goal when I opened my martial arts school to provide a facility were people could learn realistic self-defense in a safe environment. I am very proud of the level of instruction taught in our classes and believe we have set the standard for the Niagara Region.

Keeping in mind that consistency and patience are the most important aspect to becoming a great martial artist, our school provides students with a sense of tradition while focusing their learning on the most modern and effective techniques known worldwide.
