I sincerely believe that The Academy is the single best place to learn martial arts if you are seriously interested in defending yourself. Having seen the quality of instruction from other locations via the skill level of other martial artists (friends and otherwise) in relation to my own, I can confidently say that the Academy is the superior choice in martial arts training in the Reno/Sparks area. I have been training with Sensei Toomey and Coombs for over nine years, and I still feel like I have mastered a fraction of what they are capable of teaching. The instruction covers such a vast array of situations, scenarios, and most importantly, concepts that would save your life if you ever find yourself in a confrontation. Their advice is logical and sound, based on a system of martial arts that is over a thousand years old, and still relevant today. Maybe I am biased, but if you are seriously looking for an avenue to learn real self defense, then definitely give The Academy a try. We are all excited for new members!
The Academy Martial Arts is a fantastic place to spend time with friends and family. I study here with both of my children, 5 years old and 10 years old. Martial Arts is a great thing to have in common with your kids, we have an extra thing in common and we love to practice together in and out of the dojo. We have all made great friends at the dojo that we enjoy spending time with away from the dojo as well. Sensei Jake and Sensei Pierce are amazing with our kids, I have seen major improvement in respect, confidence and socialization with our children since they have been studying at The Academy Martial Arts. Not only is this place fun for the kids, but I get a great work out and am constantly learning new techniques and being challenged by my Sensei and peers. Get off your computer and come on down and meet our family at the dojo. George Anastassatos
All 3 of our sons have trained, since the age of 6, with the wonderful folks at Freestyle Martial Arts Academy. Our oldest son is 23 years old. FMA has continually earned our trust with our children for over 17 years. Freestyle builds strong, confident, responsible, honorable kids and adults. The staff at FMA are amazing, extensively trained martial artists and physical trainers. My husband and I also do our physical fitness training at FMA! Check out their cardio kickboxing classes and their Freestyle Fitness Challenge. It is the best cross-training for all sports! Thanks for a lifetime of fitness FMA!...D
