Welcome to
The Academy of Kempo Martial Arts

To A Caring Parent

Hi, my name is Robert L. Jones.

Many people walk through the doors of my school for the first time and think that martial arts is just about punching and kicking. This may surprise you, but there is so much more to it.

Our goal at The Academy of Kempo Martial Arts is to use martial arts as a vehicle to inspire kids to be more confident and focused in their daily activities.

Below, I would like to share with you the most important benefits that children and parents get from our program. Then afterward, I will let our members do the talking and share with you exactly how our program transformed their child’s life.

The Transformation

After Just A Few Weeks Of MArtial Arts, This is What Happens...

Action-Packed Fitness and Exercise.

Action-packed games, activities, and exercises give kids a great workout from head to toe.

They get stronger, healthier and more fit within just a couple weeks. These fun exercises also help maintain a healthy weight!

The best part? The fitness is disguised as FUN! All your child will know is that they’re having a blast. But you and I know they’re also getting the exercise they need.

Self-Defense From Strangers, Bullies, and More.

Make no mistake about it! While our classes are tons of fun, we also cover the "serious" stuff too.

We teach kids about handling strangers... bullies... and more.

However, the first thing we teach is diplomacy. We give your child the tools they need to "talk it out" first. Violence is ALWAYS a last resort!

Powerful Character Development Breeds Discipline, Focus, and Respect.

For thousands of years, martial arts has been one of the best kept secrets for giving kids the skills they need for success in life.

Through inspiring stories and talks, as well as the process of learning the techniques, kids develop amazing traits, like:

Respect, discipline, focus, and goal setting.

I hope your child will never have to use their self-defense skills. But I guarantee these other skills will come in handy EVERY day for the rest of their life.

Fun, Fun, Fun!!!

While kids work hard and train hard in our classes...

They also smile and laugh a LOT, too!

After all, these are kids we’re dealing with here! Our classes are a great place for kids to socialize, make friends, get support, and have a blast.

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.
