Miami Martial Arts

Get Fit. Be Strong. Feel Empowered.

Improve Your Life With Secret Martial Arts Benefits

Welcome to the family!

Our Miami Martial Arts school might just seem like a place to get fit and learn self-defense... but to us it’s so much more. When you train with us you’ll experience a place where you fit in, no matter what your background or fitness level is. You’ll also learn powerful adult martial arts, discover ways to keep your children safe, and learn secret tips to staying in amazing shape known previously only to elite martial artists.

You’ll get into the best shape of your life, learn super-cool self-defense moves, and experience changes that absolutely completely change the lives of our new students. Sure you’ll get stronger, and maybe never have to ask for help opening a pickle jar again, but the subtle change of our students' minds are what amaze us the most.

We’ll help you get next level fit, but below are a few of the more subtle changes our students experience in our classes as well.

Remarkable Self-Confidence

Something amazing happens when you start to move your body and bring physical fitness into your life...it creates an anchor. An anchor for more happiness, a sense of accomplishment, and a BIG BOOST in confidence!

You’ll have a group of passionate instructors and classmates ready to support you as you strive to push past your limits and reach your martial arts and fitness goals.

As you progress through class, you will realize how amazing and capable you already are. Realizing that makes you feel more confident and sure of yourself and your ability to handle other life challenges that come your way.

Both kids and adults experience this and it’s one of the most rewarding things to see as a teacher. Kids – especially shy and quiet ones - blossom into dynamic leaders in the classroom while adults tackle everyday tasks with more energy and a "can do" attitude.

Full On Focus

Focus your mind grasshopper. As you concentrate on listening to your instructor, then perform what they taught you, you’ll improve your ability to focus and absolutely smash your martial arts and fitness goals.

The cool thing is that this laser like focus naturally pours into all other areas of your life too.

Studies have shown that just 30 minutes of physical fitness improves focus, heightens problem solving ability, and even boosts memory in both kids and adults.

Fitness at Your Level

No matter what your starting level is, each one of our students improves from where they were when they walked into their first class - from total beginner to elite athletes. We strive to make sure every class is loaded with fun and challenging exercises that work your entire body.

You’ll be so focused on performing techniques that some of the world’s top martial artists do, and having so much FUN, that before you know it, the class is over, and you not only learned powerful martial arts...

... but you got a GREAT workout, too. Shazam! Being physically fit boosts energy, mental clarity, and confidence as well.

Community & Family Ties

Martial artists are some of the most down-to-earth people you’ll ever meet. Highly skilled and dedicated to the lifestyle, we're definitely a tight-knit group here.

Students, their families, and our instructors are all about support and friendship. You’ll make tons of new friends for life, cheer each other on during tough times, and celebrate during victories.

Friendship, motivation, and dedication - that’s the foundation of the martial arts way of life. It's truly great to experience.

You’ll Have FUN Again!

Reignite your passion for life in our awesome classes! No two workouts are ever the same and you’ll rock your body to the core with fun, functional movements.

Gain lean muscle, increase your flexibility, and learn dynamic movements which are super-secret to martial arts conditioning. You’ll never hear military style yelling and we don’t use body shaming, ever. Just fun, positive motivation so you can be at your best.

Our students work hard, but they play even harder! Laughing and smiles are part of every class.

Both students and their parents love these Miami kids martial arts classes with good reason. Our classes are not only centered towards martial art techniques but also instill our students with discipline and a deeper sense of respect. In the end, the kids become more focused and confident and even perform better in a traditional or home school environment.

But we don't mean all work with no play...that is why all our classes are blended with super-fun games and events. We help kids to learn new martial art techniques, perfect the old ones and make friends too.

Our Krav Maga classes are developed from the mid-1930s Jewish / Israeli history. In those years, anti-Semitic thugs dominated Bratislava and terrorized Jewish citizens. But a man named Imi Sde-Or, also Jewish, became their champion by defending them on the streets.

Imi Sde-Or, in his many street fights, realized that boxing and wrestling had no place in the "real world". He was an Olympic contender in both, so no one knew boxing and wrestling better than he did. He took his experience on the street, combined it with what he already knew, and developed Krav Maga; a unique type of self-defense that utilizes natural instincts for self-protection. Get fit and develop self-defense by joining our Miami Krav Maga classes.

Muay Thai's roots are said to come from ancient Thai kickboxing that's been passed down from generation to generation. In the late 1800s and early 1900s the martial art underwent dramatic change with Thailand's exposure to British boxing.

Witness the speed and power of the British, they merged those techniques with their own to form the powerful art we know as Muay Thai and teach in every one of our Miami Muay Thai classes.
