Academy of Martial Arts
The Academy of Martial Arts is
the largest professional martial arts school in the city.
Founded on the principles of teaching excellence, personal attention
and tradition, we provide you with the most complete and effective
methods to reach your full potential.
At the Academy of Martial Arts,
our instructors are personally selected, not only for their martial
arts skills, but also for their ability to effectively communicate
their knowledge and understanding to students of all ages.
Through a special company sponsored program of advanced training
they are continuously upgrading their skills. It is no
surprise that the Academy of Martial Arts instructors are ranked
among the finest in the world.
Programs Designed With You in Mind
At the Academy of Martial Arts we are
interested not only in self defense skills, but also in the complete
personal development of each student. Individual attention is
a feature of each and every class, allowing Academy of Martial Arts
students to progress quickly and easily toward their personal
goals. Our instructors take seriously their responsibility as
role models for younger students, teaching them the importance of
strong character, leadership and good values.
A Modern Approach to Self
Although our techniques are based on
centuries old knowledge, our applications of that knowledge sets the
Academy of Martial Arts apart from the other schools. We
realize that each student possesses different physical
abilities. Size and strength varies with each individual, so
once you have acquired a strong foundation in the basics, our
program will enhance your personal physical capabilities and
maximize your self defense skills. You will understand exactly
what it takes, mentally and physically, to defend yourself or your
loved ones should the need ever arise.
What Our Students and Parents Are Saying About
It’s been really good having karate classes
and you’re absolutely right, it’s a way of life. It teaches
you more than just being able to defend yourself, being active,
being healthy, it also teaches you respect for others, to be
courteous and polite, to be a better person overall. We are
very glad that you’re helping us “parent” our daughter and we
appreciate it very much.
Melanie and Edgar
We are consistently seeing a clear
difference between Brittany and other kids in the areas of self
esteem, self confidence, and susceptibility to peer pressure.
It is imperative to note how positively Karate has contributed to
this. She's not yet 14, there is a long way yet to go, but
this is a good start to the teen years.
Since Matthew first began Karate training
just over three years ago, I have seen several areas in which
Matthew has improved due to this training. His physical fitness
level has definitely improved and he is someone who now recognises
the benefits of being physically active. This has led to
improved performance in his sports related activities such as
skiing, snowboarding etc. He has a heightened sense of fairness and
a willingness to do the right thing with his family and peers. He is
definitely a team player, yet can lead if he must. He is certainly
much more focused and disciplined in his schoolwork and his grades
certainly reflect that. He certainly enjoys being part of the karate
club and practices regularly at home. I am very happy with
Matthew and his karate training.

strength. Over the past 20 years, Christopher Doyle and the staff of
