Walking Into SMA Is Without A doubt The Best Decision I Have Ever Made For My Family. My 2 Young Boys Love It! SMA Is Alot More Than Your Typical Martial Arts School It Emphasizes In Developing The Human Being, The Mind And The Spirit.

I just have to say that I am so happy my daughter started her karate journey at SMA, it’s a home where she feels there is great enthusiasm and support. Trinity is always encouraged to work hard to be stronger and better. Not only does she get the support from shihan the sensas and other instructors she is mentored by a student, Melissa, who is an incredible inspiration to her which in my heart is quite amazing. Come join this wonderful group of people we call family!!!

Great atmosphere - positive and encouraging - they keep me moving, even when I think I have to stop! You want to get a great workout while venting your frustrations? You need to take their cardio kickboxing class. It's awesome.

This place is great for teaching discipline, as well as a source of learning, exercise and FUN! I'm so glad my son is a part of Monstro Demo!

I started my son when he was 3 years old thinking he would love it. I was wrong. After about the first month he went from liking it to not doing anything nor listing. The staff was patient and would even do a one on one with him. Fast forward to two years later. He would run into the gym and be the loudest. I can not thank everybody at SMA for everything they have done. I will continue his karate but nothing will ever beat SMA or the staff. From my Son David and myself thank you for what you have shown him. If i can only tell parents that in the beginning it will be ruff, tears and yelling will come from your child. Dont give up. SMA didnt give up on my son nor should you. I will miss you all!!

It's because of all the training and hard work put in, these kids were awesome...A special thanks to instructors/sensai Gabby & Tony who put so much time and effort into getting my Jo-Jo on his game, it certainly paid off. Thank you Tatiana for your time spent helping Joe.

I just started attending their Krav Maga and kickboxing classes. The classes are challenging, the instructors are motivational, and it's a great place to get fit while learning self-defense.
