Cantu Martial Arts & Fitness is owned by Joseph Cantu. Mr Cantu has 26 years martial arts experience and has been instructing since 1988. He owned and operated successful martial arts schools in Baytown before moving to the Southbelt area of Houston. Mr Cantu has earned multiple black belts.

Mr Cantu received his purple belt from Travis Tooke, Dec 13, 2008, and still currently train under him.

The karate program we teach now still embodies traditional values which help youth achieve through goal achievement and self respect, while students and enthusiasts of Ju-Jitsu have many reasons for their interest in this and other martial art styles. Some are drawn to the physical fitness and weight-loss aspects of training. Others seek to add discipline and self control to their lives. While still others are concerned about safety and self-defense.

Whether you are interested in our programs for mental or physical well being, Cantu Martial Arts & Fitness offers a number of programs that will fit your developmental needs and your busy schedule as well.

    My recommendation: This school is great. Cantu has years and years of knowledge and he openly shares it with his students. Wheter its kids or adults, martial arts & fitness, Cantu is friendly, professional and very knowledgable. I love it!

    Put both my kids in it a year ago and they are doing great. Mr Cantu’s knowledge of martial arts and technique are impressive. His kids classes are educational and entertaining. All you have to do is bring your kids to practice regularly and you’ll see how good Cantu is.

    Thank you Cantu Martial Arts!!

    Funny guys (Angie & James)! Do your research people. His style of “karate” is not recognized anywhere else. He has made up Cuaucalli.

  • david says:

    This guy is excellent instructor with lots of knowledge. My kids love it and i just moved back to area to sign them up for another year.
    Cantu Martial Arts is a great place to train.

  • Joseph says:

    This boy the with nasty review had no problems with the services or instruction until he and his wife had financial problems. They failed to pay and now are upset the company they used put it on their credit report. They also had long periods of never bringing their son to class.

    We dont teach “mexican aztec karate” we teach bjj of which i clearly state i am a purple belt on my website. We also teach Cuaucalli which is a system i developed after 27 years and many different black belt degrees later. The name given to this art is in tribute only to the Aztecs. I just thought i would let you know that Kevin continues to hide behind a keyboard and is yet to face me or bring it to the mat. We believe Kevin (the dad) stopped training because of his tender feet. Yes i did make my system and it has been used for years now by students to win at tournaments and on the street.

    “I just thought i would let you know that Kevin continues to hide behind a keyboard and is yet to face me or bring it to the mat.”

    So he wants to FIGHT me now? Oh bless him. That is really professional. This is my point people…

    My 6 year old took a summer class this year and realy enjoyed it ! he has gained alot of respect and pride in himself … the classes let mr. cantu takes the time to make sure ALL of the kids understand the new moves that they are learning and make sure there using them correctly..
    we love it !

  • joseph says:

    Fight you? No sir. Bring it to the mat is a term we use to talk about technique, opinions, issues, etc. You would know that if you or your son came to class more than once every 6 weeks. You’re the one who wants a war by continuing to push negative reviews on Google.

  • L Johnson says:

    Joseph, You are the worst kind of bitch, & K Stevens is absolutely correct in stating that you’re unprofesional in stating what may or may not have been his situation. On top of it you sound like a joke of a mentor, what kinda jackass acts like he teaches an art thats involves a great deal of Self Discipline & Restraint and then talks s**t about another persons families supposed woes & subtley threatings him to quit expressing his own negative opinion by meeting you for a fight & bringing his son into it.

    IF YOU WANT TO “HIT THE MAT” as you stated. BOTTOMLINE- DON’T BE A HYPOCRITE IT SHOWS PEOPLE THAT YOU’RE NOTHING MORE THAN TRASH. AZTEC KARATE LMFAO YOU JOKE BJJ IS TRULY TAUGHT IN BRAZIL IF YOU’RE AMERICAN THEY USUALLY DONT SHARE ALL THE TECHNIQUES THAT ‘S IF YOU KNOW WHATS WHAT. DEUCE

  • L Johnson says:

    2 JOSEPH ,

    PS….

    IF YOU GET MAD AT THIS THEN YOU HAVE PROVEN ME CORRECT IN EVERY ASPECT OF WHAT I JUST STATED …. GO AHEAD SURPRISE ME AND LET IT GO
