A word from the owner
Welcome! It is my pleasure to have you with us at Modern Martial Arts. This school has changed many lives for the better, mine included.
I did not start out in the Martial Arts business. I worked in finance for many years, and although I was fortunate and found great success, in my heart I knew that I wanted to have a job that could impact the lives of others positively. It came as a surprise to everyone (myself included) when I decided to quit my job and start a Martial Arts school. But now I wake up excited to go to work everyday.
I travel between our four Manhattan studios, checking on the progress of our students as they grow and develop under the guidance of our wonderful instructors. As someone who is passionate about education and enriching lives, I am fulfilled each day by the work I now do.
Thank you again for choosing our academy. I look forward to seeing you or your child in class soon!
Founder/ Black Belt
The student creed is said at the start and end of every Juniors class. It sets the tone for the class, helps promote unity, and strengthens the martial arts spirit.
I will develop myself in a positive manner,
and avoid anything that would reduce
my mental growth or my physical health.
I will develop self-discipline
in order to bring out the best
in myself and in others.
I will use common sense before self-defense,
and never be abusive or offensive.
This is a Black Belt School.
We are dedicated.
We are motivated.
We are on a quest to be our best.
I am a dedicated martial artist
and I will live by the principles of a Black Belt:
Modesty, Courtesy, Integrity,
and Indomitable Spirit.
Parents, treat yourselves to a night out on the town!

The night is filled with games, prizes, treats, surprises, and a big-screen movie.

At less than the cost of a babysitter, this is a great opportunity for your child to socialize with their friends in a safe and fun environment, and to get to know our instructors a little better. It comes as no surprise that this is one of our most popular events!
