The Martial Arts can be the greatest investment in your child. It is a vehicle for self improvement and an opportunity to develop key success skills that will last a lifetime.

At Gautreaux’s, life skills and character development are our main goal. Character development including self control, discipline, respect and focus. Life skills such as stranger-danger, anger management, and our bully buster programs. We are professional instructors and parents ourselves and design all programs with our own children in mind.

At Gautreaux’s, our curriculum, class planning, and student expectations are organized by age and ability. We teach with a positive re-enforcement style that builds upon a child’s positives. We make a great student first, then a great martial artist.

Fitness is a big part of Gautreaux’s. We have special fitness programs throughout the year focusing on core strength training. Every class builds aerobic and anaerobic conditioning. Most adult students give up their gym memberships after attending our classes

Gautreaux’s is recognized nationally for their Tiger Tots program and their Elite Competition Team. Gautreaux’s is a national training center teaching Traditional and Sport Taekwondo, Mixed Martial Arts, and Special Needs programs.

Gautreaux’s Martial Arts Centers are family-owned and have been serving the communities since 1983. Along with their hand-picked staff of expert instructors both Master Oren Gautreaux and Master Terry Gautreaux personally instruct classes. Gautreaux’s martial arts strengthens the mind, body, and spirit of individuals who wish to enhance and empower their lives, who want to lead — not follow — and those who wish to contribute to others and the community. Gautreaux’s is building better futures, individuals, families, workplaces, and communities, one Black Belt at a time.

We provide a unique environment of positive values and energy for the entire family. Families are having a great time together learning valuable and real world self protection. Our award-winning programs develop core skills that give children a head start in life and support their future growth. Children are taught life skills such as Anger Management, Stranger-Danger awareness, and How to Deal with Bullies. Children (and adults alike) develop confidence. Confidence is the first line of defense and is fundamental for future success. Parents also witness a development in respect, focus, self-control, discipline, fitness, and an overall positive attitude as a direct result of Gautreaux’s training.

We cater to men, women, and children of all ages and experience levels. We are dedicated to helping every student develop their martial arts expertise, their physical fitness, and their self-defense skills.

Gautreaux’s uses a combination of techniques found in several martial arts. This is a realistic personal protection system for a modern world. By combining these realistic and effective systems, students will be better able to defend themselves in any situation they may find themselves in. Where most martial art schools focus mainly on one area of techniques, our mixed martial art approach allows us to develop a well-rounded student of self-protection.

Physical conditioning — Unlike may other workouts, Gautreaux’s uses a tri-fold approach to fitness.

To help children be safe and develop life-changing qualities.

To provide a safe-haven for personal growth and a productive means to overcoming life’s challenges.

  • “As a police officer I know the need to be able to defend yourself. I brought my family to Gautreaux’s Martial Arts Center just for that reason. Since joining GMAC we have become healthier and mere secure in our personal defense. My family and I have become closer due to our new shared hobby and the quality time we share at GMAC. Gautreaux’s Martial Arts provides age appropriate classes ranging from three years to sixty. GMAC is a family business which is dedicated to a quality family environment.”
