A year ago I was looking for a Karate Academy for my then 6 yr old son that was having discipline issues along with separation anxiety to the point that if I was not in view he would start crying hysterically. I was wanting to find an academy that could mentor him and make him feel safe and loved all at the same time... I went to over 5 different places only to find that all had an afterschool care and not a true Academy feel. I finally drove 20 mins American Karate Institute and was greeted by Mrs.G and Master G. We were allowed to sit inside the Dogo and had my son participate in a class... He loved it!!! It will be a year in Feb and I could not be happier. My son no longer cries and we have been able to leave him without a worry in the world... They are a true Academy, They do not just hand out black belts you have to earn it . They have been a blessing in our lives and they will be stuck with us for life.... The communication with the Sensei's is amazing if your child is not doing well in school or acting up they take the time to speak to the child and as it were their own and get to the bottom of the problem... American Karate Institute is truly a family and they welcome you with open arms.... We have grown very close to them all and I can see how they have been in business for 30 yrs. Because not only are they all great instructors but wonderful loving people. I highly recommend this Academy and trust me once your there you will never go else were.......
My 8 year old daughter wanted to take martial arts classes so I started looking for a gym. After looking at several martial arts gyms in my area and not having a good feeling about any of them. We decide to go to WMB even though it was a 25 minute drive for us. A friend of mine took her children there and she was happy with the gym. They had exactly what I as a parent was looking for, caring people that are interested in the children as a whole. I have both my daughters 8 and 4 going there now and they absolutely love it. They can't wait to go to their classes and my oldest has gotten more self confidence from going to WMB. JB is a great coach and shows great interest in the kids, teaching them things not even relating to martial arts before and after class. Coach Sierra is the face you see when you come in the office always warm and greeting everyone walking through the door. Love this place!
Class A school ! I was in Miami for a few days and needed a place to train . I called Fight Sports Miami ahead of time to see if it was OK to drop by . From the moment I walked through the door the entire staff couldn't have been more helpful. The facility is well maintained and all the students were welcoming. I immediately sensed this was much more then just a run of the mill martial arts academy. If your serious about your Jiu Jitsu training, this is a must,If not, I honestly suggest you try somewhere else. Now that I'm in Miami most of the season, this is my first and only training option.
2 years ago when I was searching for a school for my 8 year old son I called American Karate Institute for information. I was astonished when they suggested that I visit as many schools as possible before enrolling in any martial arts school so that I could investigate and observe how different schools conduct their classes. I took their advice and left them for last and I am glad I did. Now I know why American Karate Institute is Miami’s most popular mixed martial arts (MMA) training center for kids, teens and adults in the Miami/Kendall area.
Last year I started getting into jujitsu but I didn't have a place to train. My boyfriend told me about WMB. When we got there, the instructor JB was very nice, opening the doors for us to check out the school in a very humble way. Now as a new student, I've fallen in love with jujitsu more than ever before. My coaches are awesome, dedicated to their students and thoroughly explaining every technique. I highly recommend WMB to anyone who wants to become a world champion one day!!
This facility is really something amazing. The children and adults are having fun. The instructors are amazing, they are really engaged with your children and make me as a parent feel comfortable that my children are on good hands. My kids go to this facility everyday after school. The coaches make sure that they do there hw and participate in class. Then they give me a daily update. I recommend this program to every parent that is looking for a great a activity for their children.
This place is everything you are looking for. There are before hour and after hour sessions with amazing and dedicated instructors just in case you didn't understand something. It feels like a family in there and everyone helps out. The best instructors with great fighting backgrounds. Great conditioning and the teaching methods are impeccable.

If you are looking for a place to trim some unwanted fat or are just looking to get yourself assimilated in some form of martial arts well Miami WMB is the place to be. I personally train there and I could not feel more at home. The instructors and staff at Miami WMB are very attentive to their students and are always willing to put their time and effort into helping them achieve their goals.
I have been training Brazilian Jujitsu since i was 12. Training with Cyborg and his instructors isn't only a great experience, it is a privilege. Even though he is a world class fighter, he takes the time to work with everyone in the gym regardless of age or level. I cant get enough of this place!!
