Next Edge Academy

Officer Application

This program is designed to get kids and teens to further interact with law enforcement in a positive light. 


Monday and Wednesday 4:15pm-5:15pm

March 2nd – August 31st


We will be Instructing both officers and teens through six months of Martial Arts training both in Boxing and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu alongside each other . 

For Kids

Our goal for kids is to instill confidence in them at a young age and to allow them to see law enforcement officers through a different lens.  

For Officers

Our goal for officers is to instill confidence in them as well and reduce the anxiety of combat through training. We have seen that the more confident the officer is in their ability to protect themselves, the less likely they are to use deadly force.
