Zia Martial Arts

Our Mission

To empower our community through Jiu-Jitsu!

Zia Martial Arts offers families in the Mesilla Valley a chance to experience life-changing training at an affordable rate. We stay up to date with the latest developments in health and fitness as well as offer unique personal training that you won’t find anywhere else in the southwest. We are affiliated with the world-class instructor Tom DeBlass and provide classes that will benefit not only competitors but casual members as well.


While you may have many Jiu Jitsu schools to choose from, we have no doubt that Zia Martial Arts is in a league of its own. Don’t believe us? Here’s why:

  • Focus

    Amid the distractions of social media and the demands of modern life, Jiu Jitsu will help you refocus.
  • Self-defense

    While we offer a course explicitly for self defense, the elements of self defense are incorporated into each and every one of our classes.
  • Confidence

    Our martial arts training will help you feel strong, supported, and successful. Join and watch your confidence soar!
  • Strength

    At Zia Martial Arts, we create resilient martial artists that are strong in mind, body, and spirit.
