CKMA is a great place to train individually or even as a family in whatever style you choose. The Sensei's and coaches are humble and inspiring. We have met really cool people CKMA. This place is a hidden gem.

Great school with really kind&friendly instructors. I have been taking kickboxing classes for 1 year now and I can truly say it changed me into a better person. A place where you'll feel like home that I strongly recommend. Excellent place if you have kids, the instructors are patient and kind.

Have been a member for about a month and a half now and I have to say its a great environment.
I have signed up for the BJJ classes and Michael is a great teacher, he is fun, knowledgeable inspiring and most importantly he is patient. He also rolls with the students which shows he is a real BJJ guy.
Steve who is the owner takes what he does very seriously, he always have something motivational and inspiring to say and has a high degree of knowledge in his chosen martial arts and also participates in the sparing from time to time with his students.
The gym is always clean, the people training there are cool and very friendly.
Over all a great environment for all age groups/ skill groups and fitness levels.

Very good school. Would be a great hands on experience for anyone who is completely new to martial arts to those willing to hone their existing skills, or switch their style. Tried Kyokushin karate and jiu-jitsu classes and all the instructors are extremely knowledgeable and accomodating. Steve and Mike are great great coaches.

Why Martial Arts?

From a parent:

One of my friends asked me “Why do you pay and spend time running for your child to do Martial Arts?”

– I have a confession to make: I don’t pay for martial arts! I don’t pay for the gloves , or costumes, or competitions.
– So if you don’t pay for martial arts classes, what do you pay for?

– I pay for those times when my child becomes so tired that feels like giving up, but doesn’t.
– I pay for the opportunity to make new friends.
– I pay for the chance to have amazing instructors to teach my child that martial arts are not just about movement, but also about life.
– I pay for my child to learn to be disciplined.
– I pay for my child to learn to take care of himself.
– I pay for my child to learn to work with others, to be kind and respectful.
– I pay for my child to learn to cope with disappointment, when he doesn’t get that score he hoped for or fell during a move he practiced a thousand times, but he still stands up and is determined to do it BETTER next time.
– I pay for my child to learn to meet his goals.
– I pay for my child to learn that it takes hours and hours of hard work and practice to create a champion, and success does not happen overnight.
– I pay so my child can be in the dojo and not in front of a screen.

I could go on, but to be brief, I don’t pay for martial arts; I pay for the opportunities that martial arts offers my child to develop attributes that will serve him throughout his life and give him the opportunity to bless the lives of others.

From what I’ve seen for many, many years, I think it’s a great investment!
