Welcome to Christian Karate San Diego!

We are a system of Christian Martial Arts schools, studios, and programs that make their base out of churches and Chrisian schools in the San Diego area.  We coordinate Martial Arts Programs at local churches and schools to create Christ- centered martial arts programs.

We have been in existence since 1997 in Texas, Virginia, and California.  Since 2004 we have made our main home here in San Diego and have started programs all over San Diego County. Including Skyline Church and Calvary Christian Academy

The CEO of The Christian Martial Arts System, Rev. Eric E. Maggio, M.Div. is an Ordained Christian Minister who holds a Masters Degree from Truett Theological Seminary, and currently serves as the Senior Pastor at First Southern Baptist Church in Chula Vista.  He has been teaching karate for over 2o years at churches and schools, and was inducted into the Martial Arts Hall of Fame in 2016.


TCMAS is now expanding into a new studio location at First SBC Chula Vista located at 335 Church Ave. Chula Vista CA. 91910.  Our new studio is complete with mats, mirrors, a kicking bag and several other amenities that will enhance your child’s martial arts training.
