As their Sifu, my job is to teach them the physical, mental and spiritual principles of the ancient Kosho-Ryu and the modern Kajukenbo Kenpo Karate schools – not to see them becoming intimidating martial artists, but to see them becoming strong, wise and happy persons.”

This is What individuals are saying about us

With so many disciplines in Martial Arts schools, it can be confusing for many people to pick an instructor or school to train. In the current climate of Mixed martial arts, many people may gravitate towards Brazilian Jiu Jitsu or Grappling training for understandable reasons. Choosing an Instructor or school is often about personal preference. As someone who has witnessed the aftermath of crime and violence for 20+ years, I fell it is important to consider three things: 1) A highly competent/qualified Instructor/Coach; 2)  A Reputable and sound training curriculum that addresses all ranges of combat and self defense to include: striking, grappling, weapons and multiple attackers; and 3) Physical conditioning during the class that conditions and strengthen the mind and body.

James Martial Arts Academy provides all three of qualities and then some!
