Closed for Christmas


We will be closed on Tues., Wed., and Thur., Dec. 23-25, 2014 as well as Dec. 30—Jan. 1, 2015 so that all our families may celebrate the birth of our Lord together.

May we always remember that Jesus is the reason for the season.  May all your families be blessed during this holiday and the coming year!

 – With love to all your families —

The Mateo Family


Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord.    (Luke 2:11)



Happy Thanksgiving

With Thanksgiving quickly approaching, we wanted to take this time to be reminded of all we are thankful for.  We are truly blessed each and every day.  We are most thankful for all those whom God has brought into our lives over the past years.  You all have been very dedicated and loyal students and have provided continued support for our personal family as well as out extended studio family.  This support has come through financial means but more importantly through simple acts of prayers, kindness, smiles, laughter and tears, honesty, emotional support, and true friendships.

Thank you for allowing us to teach and guide you and your children.  We pray for each one of you and your families on a daily basis.  We pray that God will continue to bless each and every one of you over the coming year.

As a reminder, the studio will only be closed on Thursday, November 27th in order for everyone to spend time with their families and friends.  Take this opportunity to thank God for all He does for you.  Tell your loved ones how much you appreciate them and love them.  Enjoy your Thanksgiving meals together, whatever they may consist of.  Enjoy and be safe!

The studio will be open as normal on Friday, November 28th.   We appreciate and love you all!

Sifu, Simo Tina, Simo Hannah, Simo Rebekah and Sifu Caleb Mateo

Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, And into His courts with praise.

Summer Promotions are here!

Saturday, July 19th 10:00 am-12:00pm

(Students need to arrive before 9:45am, dressed in their Mateo Academy Uniform)

Please attend the Spring Promotion Ceremony in support of your fellow students. Rank presentation and awards for perfect attendance, student of the month, academic achievement and additional patches for notable distinctions will be given.  Family and friends will enjoy demonstrations by students displaying their developing skills and training. Beyond coordination and self-defense, classes emphasize the development of good character, discipline, respect and self-confidence.  Supporting the students is an important  aspect of their development and therefore your presence at the Promotion Ceremony is valued and appreciated



If you have any questions please contact Simo Tina in person, via email or by phone.
We look forward to seeing you all at the Summer Promotion Ceremony!!
