I've loved my fitness kickboxing experience! John knew my name when I arrived and made sure to see if I was comfortable the whole class. The instructors were so helpful and welcoming! Can not wait for the next class.

Best place to train. The staff is great and best of all the owner John is always a phone call or text away to answer all questions. John teaches the adult classes so that tells you he is there for the passion he has martial arts.

My son Carder started here late last year and is still new to karate but I have seen such a difference in his attitude, commitment to things he starts, and the way he handles his responsibilities. I love the fact that he gets excited every day about karate but also understands that we don't use karate to fight or show off but as needed and in a respectful manner. Thank you to all the amazing teachers and staff at JGMAA for giving my son a great example and another role model in his life!

My son, Skyler (age 6) is very into sports, but unsure which he wanted to pursue. We did the 6 week program--not knowing what to expect. We were treated like family from the first time we walked in the doors. The instructors had the children engaged and focused the whole time. It is a very well structured class. As a parent, it was fascinating how much my son learned in such a short time--while having a great time doing so. The opportunity to earn the attitude stripes --encouraged both respect and extra nightly reading at home ---another plus! He loved going each week. If our schedules weren't so busy, we would be full timers! If you or your child are even slightly interested in martial arts, I would absolutely recommend trying this academy. Nothing but a positive experience for us!

The hardest part was walking into the academy and having no idea what to expect or do. It is one of the best decisions I've ever made in my life. Since day one I've always felt welcomed, encouraged, and motivated by every person in the building. Not only have I improved physically and mentally, I have gained a 2nd family and found something to be proud of.
