World Champions Alpha Krav Maga in Gilbert: Who We Are

We're parents just like you.

When we designed our Gilbert Karate School, we built it around the things that we wanted to see for our children – discipline, respect for others and self-esteem. We are the Valley’s leader in teaching character development to children – reinforcing the values you teach at home. Children are rewarded for making good choices in all areas of their lives.

And it’s not just for kids. We have terrific adult and family martial arts programs too! Alpha Krav Maga is a blend of the best aspects of several different martial arts styles. It combines the hand techniques of Boxing and Thai Boxing, the kicking of Tae Kwon Do, Muay Thai and Kenpo Karate, the ground defense of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and self defense against weapons and multiple assailants.

Our Academy has one main goal: to improve the confidence and health of our members through martial arts and self-defense training.

We aim to positively impact not only our clients, but our community, through education and sharing the benefits of quality training. World Champions believes that the best way to build actual self-esteem and real-world skill is through the achievement of goals that are challenging and rewarding.

There's no better platform to do this than martial arts.

We are committed to reversing the trend of false confidence and unjustified entitlement. We keep our classes fun but real and love the strong bonds that develop when we're focused on not only self-improvement but helping others succeed as well.

About Master Instructor / Coach Edmondson

Joseph Edmondson has been involved in martial arts training since the early age of 4. While growing up in California, he was picked on and bullied in school and lacked confidence. That is, until his mother decided to put him in the martial arts, which helped to build his self-esteem and teach him to defend himself.

His teacher was Grand Master Dan K. Choi, who’s famous students include Ernie Reyes, Sr. and Ernie Reyes, Jr.; Cynthia Rothrock, Tom Callos, Scott Coker, David Douglas and Kim Do; to name a few. Grand Master Choi, who retired in the year 2001, entrusted Joseph to teach his students and oversee enrollment. He promoted Joseph to 5th Dan Black Belt in January 2001, bestowing upon him the title of “Master Instructor.”

Master Edmondson has owned and operated his own schools since 1995, promoting martial arts and improving the lives of thousands of students over the years. He holds multiple advanced degrees of Black Belt and numerous teaching certifications. Still committed to learning even more forms of realistic training, Master Edmondson began training with Alpha Krav Maga instructor Sam Sade, who promoted Master Edmondson to “Coach” and has been a huge proponent of the Israeli System ever since.

To this day, you will find Master / Coach Edmondson training alongside his students on a daily basis and even after his years of competition and numerous championships; he still finds joy in teaching his students how to perform at a top level.
