We are a true Academy of Martial Arts Studies where we accommodate students from the age of 3 on up and instill in them the precepts of Health, Education and Commitment. We offer MORE CHOICES, MORE CLASSES AND MORE EXPERIENCE than any school in the area. Most of our instructors are academically degreed as well as belted in a variety of martial arts disciplines which will be taught at The Academy.
OUR INSTRUCTORS ARE THE BEST! Our martial arts instructors have over 100 years of martial arts experience ranging from 40+ years to a minimum of 6 years per instructor.
