Yesterday my Little Samurai was taught by Riley. She is awesome 👏 I am very pleased with what I saw. Riley just became and instructor after being a student for years and she is great, the kids really respond well to her. I love that she teaches them respect and makes sure that they answer her by saying “yes mam”. It’s great to see a woman on the mat it gives our daughters something to look up to. We love this dojo and all the staff members. Reggie is hilarious he gets all the kids and parents giggling but he really knows his stuff and Alex is also terrific. Thank you everyone ! Great job on the program.

“At Karate America they teach kids discipline, respect and leadership skills.”
“The instructor was very hands on with the class and also informative.”
“Family participation is great for all.”
My 3 yr old son loves going to Karate. Mrs. V and Mr. Ferrer are amazing with the families. Thank you both for your time and patience.
Mr. Twiggs and his daughter are awesome instructors!! My son has been going to Karate America since December 2014 and his behavior and confidence in himself has gotten better. At Karate America they teach kids discipline, respect and leadership skills. I also have attended the adult classes also and was very happy with my results.
The kick boxing classes are great. The karate classes are not age grouped like I am used to. My son was 5 at the time and was in the same classes as teens and even a Dad. It was odd. He didn’t get individual attention and they try to sell you a one on one package but I was already paying about $130/ mth that didn’t include equipment. For an adult this is a great place to join. The kids night is pricey but well worth it. My son didn’t want to leave and Dad and I got to go on a date while he had a blast at the center.

“However, IMAA caught my attention immediately upon entering the facility.”
“The instructors are extremely knowledgeable and masters of their craft!”
Best Martial Arts Training AroundI have been a student at the International Martial Arts Academy located in Fort Lauderdale for the past 9 months, they are open for more than 17 years and this 17th street facility is going to be perfect for me! I had never been in a martial arts Dojo before then. However, IMAA caught my attention immediately upon entering the facility. I couldn’t help but notice the building was clean, organized and had a friendly staff. What I hadn’t expected was the feeling of peace that overcame me as I walked in, the feeling that I belonged. My interest in joining IMAA came from the belief that something was missing in my life. I have never been much of a gym bunny, but the idea of martial arts seemed like a fantastic way to step out of my comfort zone and really push myself. My life had become stagnant, my confidence was low and I was searching for something, though I didn’t know what it was exactly and then I started taking martial arts lessons. This school exudes everything you could desire from a trainer. All instructors are extremely well trained in many different forms of martial arts, knows just how far to push and at the same time instills confidence. If you are looking for instructors who are professional, well trained and care about your progress then IMAA of Fort Lauderdale is the only place to go for Martial Arts instruction. Already after 6 months of lessons, I already have a renewed sense of confidence, self-worth and am more focused in other aspects of my life. Physically I can do things I didn’t think my body was capable of, but my instructors encourages me so much that it is only later that I realize how much I physically pushed myself. It doesn’t feel like work. Taking martial arts at IMAA is fun, exciting and more than I could have ever hoped. Every lesson teaches me something new, not only about martial arts, but about myself as well. I cannot stress enough that if you are missing anything in your life, or are interested in martial arts then IMAA BEST MARTIAL ARTS IN TOWN!
I am so impressed with everything about this dojo! Everyone is super friendly and helpful! Their skills are A+!! It’s a total family environment. The instructors are extremely knowledgeable and masters of their craft! They make coming to class so worth it on every level! Sensei Ruocco truly cares about every detail and person in his dojo; he is so positive, helpful, and I am 100% grateful to have found this dojo! This place is the best! The whole environment is clean, organized, and structured for success. Since day one I have been so welcomed! I am stronger, more fit, and confident since joining IMAA! I recommend this dojo to everyone! Thank you IMAA family for being an amazing part of my life!!
