Martial Arts Program

Martial Arts Program

Under the direction of Master Chris Haleva, owner of Midwest Martial Arts in Valparaiso. We will be offering classes for youth and adults. Which will emphasize on these techniques of, self-discipline, self-esteem, balance, respect for others, coordination and self-defense.

The Duneland YMCA and Midwest Martial Arts Center has formed a partnership in offering beginner martial arts classes.  We will be offering youth and adult sessions; the classes are open to all youth from ages 4-14 years old and adults ages 15 and up.

The youth classes will be an introduction to various martial arts styles that will rotate each week. Ending with a final performance to showcase all your skills that you have learned throughout the session.

The adult classes will focus on development of self-confidence, empowerment, and respect for others while learning how to defend themselves and stay in shape.

We encourage the practice of core values of caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility.
