About Ray Paulhus

Ray Paulhus began studying the Martial Arts in 1989 in the state of Rhode Island. He moved to California that same year and found a studio in Anaheim, CA that allowed him to continue his newly discovered passion for the Martial Arts. He received his First Degree Black Belt in 1995 and was chosen by his instructor to help instruct in his children's program. Soon after he was hired full time to manage the Anaheim studio. He managed the Anaheim studio for the next nine years taking the student base from 100 students to 230 students. He also built a staff that started with just him to 3 full time instructors and multiple part time instructors.

In 1999 a national chain of martial arts studios approached him to help expand their company by opening and managing new studios. While operating his Anaheim location he helped expand the company by opening 10 new locations, recruiting and training instructors. Eventually he had to give up his full time position as a Chief Instructor of his Anaheim studio to focus on managing his many studios.

After 10 years at the district manager position he decided to return to what he loved to do, teach Martial Arts to Men, Women and Children. As a citizen in the Murrieta Valley area, he knew that if he were to return to teaching full time again, he would have to do it here.  He decided to open Trinity Martial Arts Skills Academy in Murrieta.

Since that time, Mr. Paulhus has spent the last 3 years dedicated to Martial Arts research and development, specifically an age specific children's martial arts curriculum. His goal is to provide a results driven Martial Arts Program that really makes a difference

Mr. Paulhus lives in Menifee, CA with his wife Patti and their daughter Karmen. Their son Tyler currently resides in Misawa, Japan serving in the United States Air Force.

What Our Clients Say...

"When I first came here, I wasn't sure what to expect. But now that I've become a member, I could never go back to my old dojo! Trinity Martial Arts is THE dojo to work out in if you're interested in just that - working out. The instructors are professional, friendly and highly knowledgeable, and I was impressed when they didn't immediately bombard me with the usual sales pitch. The decor is nice and functional and the people who come here make it very comfortable, that's what it's all about. I wholeheartedly recommend Trinity Martial Arts!"

Michael J.

"I like the fact that people of all ages come to Trinity Martial Arts for their martial arts training. I'm in my mid-forties, and this is something that I have always wanted to do. I don't feel out of place and I am getting into the best shape of my life. The Group Classes are always full of practical self defense techniques and are so fun because of all of the people that I get to work out with. People come here to work out and have a good time. The atmosphere is great, the studiois modern and clean, and the instructors at Trinity Martial Arts are friendly and helpful across the board. Thanks for all you've done!"

"My son and daughter have been attending for over a year Sensei Ray is an amazing he knows the kids teaches the kids and he loves the kids the best place I could have ever put my kids thank you Ray and family luv Kim and Family."

Kimberlye D.

"My son has been attending this studio for over a year and loves it.  Sensei Ray is a great teacher.  His teaching is all encompassing:  karate skills, discipline, listening, attitude, team work, self defense.  He covers it all. I love that he also stresses the use of these skills outside of the karate studio as well.  I recommend this studio for any child who is still learning discipline, and aren't they all?! Thank you Sensei!"

Toni A.

"My nine year old son started attending Trinity Martial Arts  about a month ago and he loves it! Mr.Ray is super fun with the kids and always changes things up so the kids don't get bored. He also disciplines and teaches the kids respect to the highest level. Mr.Ray teaches the kids to see martial arts as not just a physical activity but a way of life and to respect all of their elders and apply the things they do in every day life like home, school ,at the dojo and everywhere else. I recommend Trinity Martial Arts 100%. We looked at many other places and none are as good as Trinity. Also,no other place offers a private lesson once a week! My son loves to have his private lesson because it really helps him understand and grow in his technique and skills! This place is amazing everyone looking to learn martial arts should definitely come here :)"

Faby N.

"We were looking to get our 10 year old and 12 year old involved in some form of martial arts.  We checked out a couple studios and when we called Trinity Ray offered to let the kids try a class for FREE to see how they like it.   On the way home they were both literally begging us to start.  Ray, the owner is fantastic and takes great pride in what he does.  He makes the classes fun for all ages.  I would recommend Trinity to anyone at any age."

Lora M.

"Great place!  We really like this Martial Arts center for our young son.  While they provide instruction for all ages, what I really liked about this place is that they offer more than just Martial Arts for my 5 year old.  They also teach important life skills, like manners/respect for others, introductions/greetings, how to call 911, how to deal with strangers, as well as vocabulary and basic education.   It's a fun place that is also respectful and educational.  Ray, the owner takes pride in providing excellent instruction and there is no complicated sign up or yearly dues.  You can pay month-to-month and the place is affordable for Martial Arts training.  Really enjoy watching our son learn much more than just Martial Arts.  They are also starting basic training and exercise classes which are really nice too."

Michael K.

Sensei Jason was beyond wonderful. So upbeat, keeps the kids smiling, laughing but on task. I really appreciate the time he took to walk me thru the registration process and for discussing our family's special needs. The dojo is clean and inviting and the other staff members and students were all super sweet.  I would highly recommend Trinity for young kids as they definitely keep them moving and having fun while learning. I was very impressed by the other students who have been there a while. Thank you guys for the excellent experience!

Jess H.

My son loves Trinity Martial Arts! Talking about it all the way home and still talking about it this morning. 

From the moment we walked in Ray and Jason were awesome! They high 5d Luca and welcomed him to the team! The exercises they did, directions they gave and questions they asked were all so exciting to watch and listen to and watching the kids respond in such a way that kept their attention, was outstanding! My son tried things he has never done before with such confidence all because these guys made them feel and think he could do it! 

If you are looking for an activity to put your child in that will test their strength, keep them focused and accountable this is it! My son is 3 years old and this was the best decision I made signing him up with Trinity!

Guys, Thank You! 

Thank you for showing my son in just 1 class he can do this! 

I wish I could post video it's truly something to see!! 

Andrea B.

Such a great karate school! My 7yo son is attending the school for second year. He's excited after every single class. Amazing environment for kids and parents. Ray and Jason do amazing work. They are so professional, passionate and involved in the process. Kids are getting a lot of very useful skills there: discipline, respect, physical training. Glad my son is a part of it.

Andrei K.

Awesome instructor, Mr Ray. He is genuine, kind and knows how to handle kids. The facility is clean and neat. The vibe is light and comfortable, we actually hang out there during the kids karate time. 
Plenty of parking, restaurant, and salon is near by, good place and good people. Thumbs up.

Awesome instructors, very sweet with the kids. Clean setup and plenty of parking and space for parents to hang out.

Alexander G.

My son loves this dojo. Sensei Ray has done a great job of designing the age based classes. My son is learning martial arts while improving his strength, speed, agility and coordination. As a side benefit, his ability on the football field has improved and he was outperforming most of the 7 year olds on his team when he was only 5. I would recommend to anyone who's looking at martial arts and overall athletic training.

Chamroeum O.

This is a great place.  Since they don't require a contract, I felt very comfortable about enrolling several members of the family without worrying about the financial obligation should one of my kids not want to continue for whatever reason.  Ray is great as is the rest of his staff.  I would recommend them to anyone looking to start their kids in martial arts.

Mark W.

My daughter just turn 3 years old and she is learning how to use her physical skills. I also like that they have extra staff to help & teach the kids if they need help.

3 of my 4 grandchildren attend Trinity Martial Arts. They love Sensei Ray, Sensei Jay, and the rest of the crew. All are people persons and my munchkins feel real comfortable around them. They have been going there for almost 2 years now. Highly recommended to any parent looking for an after school activity for the kids.

This place is great!!! Sensei Ray and Jason are great! My son has been asking to come even on the days he isn’t scheduled. He’s learning better discipline and new skills every time I definitely recommend this place to everyone.

I loved the program for my visiting grandson from Oklahoma for the summer. I will do it again next year when I bring him home again to Menifee, CA. Master Ray is awesome, my grandson still talks about master Ray.
