About Us

Mark Cukro

Feed your mind, body and spirit.

Our Academy is truly one of a kind and the only one in the area that offers such a variety of effective martial arts and self defense training.

We focus on teaching martial art fundamentals that will create positive lifestyle changes that last a lifetime.

Our schedule offers day, night, and weekend options so you can find a class to fit your busy schedule.

Our programs are designed specifically for improving overall physical fitness and technical skills in a safe environment.

Due to the diverse experience of our instructors we are able to provide superb instruction in six different styles of Martial Arts.

Personal Power

We want every student in our Academy to gain self-confidence, enjoy self-development, learn to master self-protection and achieve his/her goals.

Real World Protection

Our approach to martial arts is entirely practical and the techniques we teach are highly effective for self defense and real life situations.

Commitment to Excellence

I want every instructor to be a positive influence, every parent to be proud of his/her child, and every student to have the opportunity to earn a Black Belt. We are also the only Academy in Harrisburg with a Gracie Jiu Jitsu Black Belt.

My son Dominic trains at your academy in Jiu Jitsu. Many of you have met him. There are no words to describe our experience and to thank the trainers AND trainees. Dom and his middle brother both have been diagnosed with intellectual disabilities along with severe speech impairments. EVERYONE is so respectful and accepting of our son, our family. It means the world to us. I blog regularly, and wanted to share my post with you all...as you all have change my son's world....our world. Thank you for focusing on his abilities, rather than his disabilities.

IMAA is the best in the STATE! Best instructors & students. I enjoy seeing everyone helping each other; young, old, newbie, seasoned, it doesn't matter. I credit Sensei Mark for the positive role model he is as to what makes IMAA such a great academy.

Integrated Martial Arts is hands down the best academy around! I looked for over a year for a good martial arts school, and the moment I walked in this academy I knew it was the right one. Sensei Mark is an awesome teacher and explains everything you learn thoroughly. If you want to learn in a friendly, positive environment, and learn how to defend yourself in realistic situation, no questions asked this is definitely the academy to be at!!!

I cannot even express how awesome this school is! As a single mom I have already begun feeling safer at night and coming out of the mall, since starting jiu jitsu and kickboxing at this school. Nevermind the fitness benefits!!

The teachers are among the best in the business and my fellow students are fun to train with. Thanks for giving me the skills and confidence I was looking for.
