Mutual Respect, Honor,

As A Veteran, Its a honor to teach martial arts

Yesterday, on Mother’s Day, the Innovative Martial Arts Academy Demonstration Team performed in Wakefield, for an event called, Run Like a Mother.  My kids performed exceptionally well.  Just before the 5K was to start, the event holders played, The Star-Spangled Banner.  My kids, along with their parents stood tall with their hands over their hearts, hats in hand.  

Being a veteran, it’s almost instinctual to go to attention and give respect for our Country’s anthem, and to the flag symbolizing our great nation.  In contrast to many others, I saw my kids,  all of them, every single ONE of them standing giving their respect. 

It says a lot about our nation’s future in their hands, and it says a lot about our martial arts school and the environment it provides.  I’ve NEVER been more proud.  Our kids are AMAZING, our parents are EXCEPTIONAL.  Anyone who joins our academy to be a part of this martial arts family ought to feel blessed.  I love this school and I love these kids with my whole heart.

Our Reviews

Great school with wonderful teachers. My daughter has a great time learning and everyone is friendly. There is even an adult class that allowed me to try to see if I liked it and everyone was very patient with me. I am thankful to have my daughter be a part of the Innovative Martial Arts Academy in Wake Forest and know she is benefiting from it in more than one way. It amazes me how fast she is learning and how hard she is trying. They have her trying to develop at her fullest with her mind, body, and spirit. I would recommend this school to anyone interested in martial arts.

This place is great! Charles and his team have fantastic programs for kids. When we started our 3.5 year old son, I didn’t know what to expect. He quickly adapted to the classes and now loves going. Our 2 year old son loves watching and will start as well as soon as he turns 3. Innovative Martial arts also hosted their birthday parties. The kids had a blast doing different activities throughout the birthday party. Can’t say enough good things about this place, and what they teach!

Wonderful place for not only skill development but also personal development. Owner and instructors genuinely get to know students and families and care about them. The lessons learned will provide character growth as well as martial art skills. The owner is also a long time student of many different martial arts, he didn't just buy a franchise, and tries very hard to live what he teaches the students. Proud to have been in this dojo family for 6+ years and proud of the friendships we have made there!
