Why Our Martial Arts Program Is So Darn Powerful.

Most martial arts force you to "retrain" your body to do things that don't feel natural.

Not here.

We've crafted a program that works WITH your body's natural instincts - not against them.

That means it's FAST to learn, and EASY to use when you need it most.

You'll discover:

Incredible hand to hand combat techniques

How to stay safe when surprise-attacked - and escape

How to defend yourself & the ones you love from an armed attacker

What to do against opponents much larger than you in size

How to turn your environment into a weapon to use against an attacker

How to identify and escape danger BEFORE it happens

Ultimately: How to stay safe & live a peaceful life

That's the true gift of our Adult Martial Arts classes.

Frequently Asked Questions

Any sport or form of exercise comes with a risk of injury. However, there are a few things that make our program very safe. It's because of these few things that we barely see any injuries with our program.

Stretching: At the beginning of every class we go through a series of stretches. These stretches get your muscles and joints ready and warmed up for exercise.

Supervision: Every class is supervised by trained, licensed professionals. We watch carefully to make sure no student is doing anything in a dangerous or unsafe way.

In short, we place a tremendous amount of focus on fun and safety. It's because of this that we feel confident telling you that while there is risk for injury with our program - it's a very small risk.
People come to us of all fitness levels. We get natural-born athletes, and we get people who have a harder time with athletic endeavors. However, everyone gets the same focus and attention.

If you're not in great shape, don't worry. Go at your own pace, and we'll do everything we can to help you learn each and every technique. Soon enough, your physical fitness will improve, and you'll be in better shape than ever!
No! Because self-defense technique is taught in martial arts, it's often thought of as violent. However, the philosophies behind martial arts revolve around peace and harmony. The moves are more of a way to become connected with your body. We teach diplomacy and friendship. However, if a violent situation ever arises in your life, you'll have powerful tools to defend yourself and your loved ones.

The place looks and smells old but I don't care because my 4yo son really enjoys the lessons. The website is like nothing to be with the place. It's hard because he doesn't want to go but once there, he really enjoys it. It was difficult at the beginning because the teachers are very strict on following directions, which was the reason I starting sending him there. Now that we have been attending for several weeks, he behaves much better and follows the class. The best teacher is Fernando, he really knows how to deal with kids. He is funny and when he is in charge of the class is when my son enjoyed it the best. I bought a Groupon which included the 20 lessons, the uniform and two private lessons. I had to ask several times for the uniform and, at the moment that we are almost finishing the 20 lessons, nobody talk to me about the private lessons

My kids love this place - it build character and important life skills in a very interactive way. The experiences is personalized to each kid. Both kids (5 and 6 y/o) enjoy going to the classes and look forward to earning the new stripes/belts. We really appreciate instructors focus on the whole person. This month they are learning about stranger danger in a very tangible way - I feel that they can apply these skills right away and be more prepared to deal with different types of situations. My daughter is very outgoing, she benefits from the emphasis on focus and balance. My son needs to learn how to be more self-confident - instructors are helping her to be more comfortable in different situations. My husband and I love observing the class and how instructors interact with kids. Every class is very dynamic and goes really fast.

I was looking for a fitness program that could keep me engaged. I had tried going to the Gym and found it too mechanistic. I was seeking something more holistic, something that was broad and would keep me engaged and learning for years to come. I've been active for over a year with the academy. The culture is built around humility, mutual respect and support. The emphasis is on growth & mastery and not on achievement. The master & instructors make learning the techniques seem easy. I feel I have found what I was searching for. I intend to stay in the art & continue practicing and learning in the years to come. I would highly recommend the academy to anybody who is looking for sustained physical fitness and mental alertness.

It was a little over a year ago when I joined AKMA. I was suffering from my anxiety disorder in an unnecessarily hostile work environment and dealing with the strain provided by elements of my personal life. My hope was that by practicing martial arts I would learn to channel that energy in a more positive way. Going to the academy provided me not only the positive outlet I sought, but also a place that feels like a second home and a community of people who feel like a part of my family. Recently, my financial situation became rather dire and I was no longer able to afford going to the academy. When Master Jones realized I was not showing up anymore he contacted me and told me that there is "no reason" I shouldn't still come to class. He recognized my love and determination for the art but moreover the bond formed from practicing it with other people. These are not money-centric business people who pretend to be martial artists. This is a community of people formed around a common passion who understand and treat everyone who walks through their doors as a human being. As such, they deserve the same respect. Should you decide to see AKMA for yourself you will find that if you care for the people and care for the art that it is not hard to fit in there. People from all walks of life, ethnicities, religions and age all gather here to form a bond through a common interest: self-improvement. It is a positive journey, no matter the negative elements in the path of your life. It is a journey I highly recommend you take.
