“Super Clean facility, fun programs, and very family oriented.”
“The tuition is very high relative to other martial arts gyms in the area.”
“The staff and other students make this place wonderful.”
Probably best taekwondo studio in town.
I took my granddaughter to Blackman’s for the summer session. After being home for over a year with online schooling, my granddaughter was ready to get out, get moving, and learn something new. The pace was steady and the sessions were challenging. She loved the challenge and she became more focused and confident as a result.
The staff was very professional. Mr. Dillon is a great instructor dedicated to teaching others the fine art of Taekwondo. Miss Lisa was very helpful and courteous. I highly recommend Blackman’s to anyone who is thinking of taking martial arts classes.
As a parent with a background in teaching and ten years personal experience in martial arts, I was very meticulous when researching martial arts schools for my son. I was looking for a school that focused on the whole child more than the belts or punches. Blackman’s delivers that and more. I am thoroughly impressed by the quality of instruction, curriculum and caring found here. My son is thriving in their classes and now my daughter is wanting to join. I highly recommend this school for their commitment to excellence.

“Great staff and instructors, everybody is friendly and easy to work with.”
“With a Clean facility and Very family friendly atmosphere.”
“Great place to make a martial arts home.”
Great school!, the instructors are awesome and it’s a great atmosphere to learn jiu-jitsu
Joe is really good with the kids. Explains techniques in a “kid- friendly” way. My son loves going.
I was going to write this review after the introductory 15 minutes I spent with Justin after having my mind BLOWN by a trap and roll, but I figured I should probably finish out the class before I jumped to conclusions.Then I realized I could never write a proper review until I finished out the free 10 day trial (which I made sure to squeeze as many classes into as possible). Once that was up I figured I should at least get my first stripe at 20 classes before I made any assumptions. Next it made complete sense to wait until I got my second stripe and was allowed to spar so my review contained all that was available (Not to mention Muay Thai, Wing Chung, and Judo). Of course, you can’t REALLY review a place like this until you have spent HUNDREDS of hours there, shed blood, sweat, and tears, become a part of a huge community of some of the most wonderful people around, and allowed such an amazing lifestyle to truly propagate through your entire being….. so now, after 2 years of training, 5 days a week, getting the first stripe on my blue belt, I feel like I can say…
I think i’ll wait for my Purple belt!
But seriously. This school has been such an integral catalyst for change in my life that I feel forever indebted to it. Justin and his team have built something truly marvelous here and they welcome new people with open arms. This is the perfect balance of self defense, exercise, community, and sport. I have come up through the ranks here with some of the finest individuals I have ever known. The children’s classes are top notch and the kids get a fantastic education while having fun and learning to defend themselves. We call the kids “bully-proof” and I think it is the perfect description. If you have ever seen a UFC fight go to the ground and thought “Man, I would love to be able to do that,” or you just need some more exercise, this is the place to be. I cannot wait to meet you. Chances are, I’ll be there.
Martial Artistry Kung Fu, Wushu School
The best martial arts instructors train for a lifetime, and throughout their tenure ours remain enrolled in Martial Artistry’s Instructor Certification Program, ensuring that their training is continuous and remains current. The minimum level of commitment to this program involves roughly 5 hours of wushu, kung fu and martial arts instructors training each week – including training in educational theory. Many of these instructors opt in for even more training, and most Martial Artistry instructors have already logged hundreds of hours honing their skills, perfecting their teaching methods and developing excellent student rapport.

“Self paced environment and excellent staff make this a great family studio.”
“It is a place that very easily becomes a second family and home.”
“The atmosphere is very family friendly and encouraging.”
My family and I have been going here for a little over two years and have loved every minute of it! In my younger years I took a few different martial arts and this school is by far one of the most open, accepting, and challenging I have ever been to.
Sifu works with each person individually and helps them to work within their own physical abilities and limitations while still pushing for people to excel.
Originally we started because it was one of the most affordable and flexible schedules in Albuquerque and we have stayed because of the wonderful people and the challenge. It is a place that very easily becomes a second family and home.
Actually I work for Overhead Door. I was fixing doors close to this location…BUT…The Wushu taught here is absolutely amazing. Sifu Kane is an awesome instructor and very knowledgeable!! Havent been a student of hers personally( from a different wushu school) but I have tried one class of hers and it was a wonderful workout!
This is a wonderful school! I was looking for a martial arts school that was friendly, challenging, and helpful; I found all three qualities here. The people here are wonderful. I started just over a year ago, and immediately everyone was very welcoming. I find the curriculum to be just the perfect amount of challenging. You’ll know you’re working out and improving every time you come, but at the same time, any physical limitations or disabilities are taken into account to make sure you’re never given more to do than you can handle. It truly is a tailored experience and a place where I believe anyone could flourish. You should come here.
