The Innovative Martial Arts Academy Creed

Our Core Values: Our Mission

The IMAA Creed

All students at Innovative Martial Arts Academy are expected to know the creed and be able to recite it before each class. The IMAA creed is: 

 

I will develop myself in a positive manner and avoid anything that could reduce my mental growth or physical health.

I will develop self-discipline in order to bring out the best in myself and others.

I will use common sense before self defense and never be abusive or offensive.

This is a black belt school, we are dedicated, motivated, and on a quest to be our best.

 

What Does It Mean?

Martial Arts is not just about your physical self – it’s about your mental self as well. In order to be a successful martial artist, you need to work on both your mind and your body. That is what our creed is about: developing and growing in a positive manner both mentally and physically. We aspire to be the best version of ourselves on and off the mat. We will accomplish that by our:

  • dedication 
  • self-discipline
  • motivation

 

How Do We Follow Our Creed?

We follow our creed by living by and practicing the four core values. These four core values are:

  • Integrity
  • Discipline
  • Focus
  • Perseverance

By practicing each of these core values every time you step inside the dojo, you will succeed in becoming the best martial artist you can be.

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!

Innovative Martial Arts Academy (IMAA) is the best place to take martial arts. Charles Falk, the owner, and his staff do a great job teaching martial arts to the students and teaching each student to be confident and disciplined. My son has been with IMAA for eight years - he has earned one black belt and is working on his second.

Not only are the staff amazing, but there is a mix of fun and learning in the curriculum. My 5 year old daughter absolutely loves this school. She has learned respect and many other aspects making her more focused and well behaved. I definitely recommend this school for you or your child.

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.

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!
