Welcome to Aurora Marital Arts
Located in Corvallis, Oregon at: 195 SE Crystal Lake Drive.

Aurora Martial Arts began in the Echo Hollow Community Center in 1995. After moving to the Corvallis area in 1996, Mr. Donadio began teaching in parks, parking lots, and breakrooms until he opened the Academy to the public in January of 1997. In 2011 work began on a new home for Aurora Martial Arts, in September 2012 construction of a new professional training center was completed and we began teaching classes in the new facility. We are very excited to be teaching and training in the new Academy. Please take a moment to come inside for a virtual tour.

Aurora Martial Arts Facility

You'll find Aurora Martial Arts to be one of the cleanest and well maintained facilities you have ever trained in. The floors, equipment and bathrooms are cleaned and sanitized on a regular basis. We ensure a professional, clean, safe and enjoyable environment for students, visitors and instructors.

Academy Ribbon Cutting

The Grand Opening of our new dojo was on September 22, 2012. We had our own form of a ribbon cutting; "Boards and Brick breaking", it was a great success! (These are among the many things that students learn at our school.)

At Aurora Martial Arts, we encourage parents to stick around and watch their kids progress through their training. Seating has been provided, along with free wi-fi internet access.

Main Training Floor

Our main Kenpo training floor is to the right as you enter the school. The training area is 2,400 sq ft, covered with the Swain Grappling Mat flooring system. This mat system has been used as the official martial arts mats of the Olympic Games. This training floor is used for all belt ranks, classes and practice.

Jiu-Jitsu Training Floor

The secondary training floor is to the left as you enter. The training area is appropriately 1,500 sq ft covered with the Dollamur FLEXI-Roll® Mat System. This training area is used for classes, open practice and our no-gi Jiu-Jitsu program.

Pro Shop

Our front desk and pro shop area provide help and support for our students and families. The pro shop stocks the gear and equipment students need for training and if we don't have it we can get it!

Wisdom In Training

To teach a student Kenpo and develop their skills in Self-Defense without teaching and reinforcing rules of conduct would be a mistake.

Students will learn to protect themselves and others while consistently working to develop respect and personal responsibility.

The Instructors at Aurora Martial Arts use weekly topics and the student creed as tools to develop and reinforce a “Strong Character” in our students.

Our student creed is used in every class, it is our reminder that training is not just about kicking and punching:

Student Creed End Of Class Pledge

I will work to improve my mind, my body and my attitude
through positive actions.

I will develop self-discipline to help me reach my potential.

I will use my skills with respect and responsibility to help myself and others.

I will train with intensity and focus.

As A Dedicated Student Of The Martial Arts,
I Will Live By The Principles Of Black Belt.

Honor - Integrity - Respect - Compassion
Self Control - Dedication - Courage - Indomitable Spirit

What's Our goal?         Black Belt Excellence - Sir!
How Do We Lead?         By Example - Sir!

Our Team

We are extremely proud of our team, from our Junior Leadership Team to our cadre of seasoned Instructors. The entire staff of instructors and assistants actively train and pursue outside training opportunities such as Clinics, Seminars, and Camps to further their skill and ability to help students excel!
