The emphasis on avoiding confrontation is first and foremost in this class. Students will earn how to avoid bad situations and how to handle them if they happen.

These classes are fun, informative, and effective. Your child will learn to be more focused, disciplined, and also learn how to become a responsible young adult that shows respect to everyone they encounter.

Martial Arts is widely recognized as far more than an extra curricular activity… it is a training program that empowers children with powerful techniques and strategies for lifelong success.

Kid-Jitsu

This is simply a fun class and the kids love it.

This class is designed to teach children the fundamentals of Jiu Jitsu and self defense. The class focuses on developing coordination, agility, and mental focus.

This is simply a fun class and the kids love it. At our Academy we honor tradition but incorporate innovative teaching methods that help your child to become more coordinated, learn the art, and get in shape. Children will become noticeably more confident and learn to earn their achievements as they progress toward a Black Belt.

Jiu-Jitsu is a highly effective self-defense system designed to allow a smaller, weaker person to defend his or her self against someone larger.

Extreme Karate

We offer a curriculum that has been tested and proven to effectively address the realities of what a child will face in the real world. Rather than distract or impress our students with spectacular techniques that have little practical value or application we concentrate on techniques that keep children safe in the face of danger.

This class starts with the basics of kickboxing and self defense and the kids just love it. Extreme Karate will help your child become more coordinated and get in better shape. They will begin to learn grappling and what to do when someone grabs them or attempts to hold them down.

Your child will become noticeably more confident and learn to earn their achievements as they progress toward a Black Belt.

The first two classes are free so come in and give it a try. Call Sensei Mark at (704) 363-6236

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.
