(Martial Arts Center of Mount Shasta)

An Amazing Facility
Wow! The Mount Shasta Martial Arts Program (MSMAP) is pleased to offer an amazing training facility in the Martial Arts Center of Mount Shasta (MACMS): a great floor, mats, padded walls...everything to make a very safe training facility. We don't think it's an exaggeration to state that we now have the premier martial arts training facility in a 60-mile radius.

But don't take our word for it, see the pictures and decide for yourself.

  • A heated room with a safe, flex-floor.
  • Swain tatami-style mats.
  • Padded walls.
  • Restroom.

A Brief History
In October 2008, MSMAP was given the opportunity to move into a dedicated martial arts facility in town. At first glance, people either hated it for what it was, or loved it for what it could be. As a converted machine shop/old school gym, the sheet metal walls and concret floor discouraged many people, but MSMAP immediately began the challenging process to convert the facility into a usable facility for four different martial arts groups.

Our original ambitious plans called for upgrading and maintaining two rooms. A donor provided wood for framing a couple of walls, two others provided the labor to put up the frames and install the insulation. A new duct was installed to pump heat from the heating unit in the one room to the other.

In January 2009, we generously provided space for the Mount Shasta High School Wrestling Team to train in exchange for the use of their wrestling mats. For three months,
