Children are precious. As a parent, you know it is your responsibility to protect your child from all sorts of dangerous situations. It isn't easy. They grow up fast. Time flies, and eventually children must learn to defend themselves. You certainly do not want your son or daughter to be bullied, or to become a bully. Martial Arts lessons are a fantastic solution. Every kid should learn self-defense. It's like learning to swim—it’s lots of fun, it can save your life, and it builds self-control and self-confidence. After serving the Rockland and Bergen communities for 18 years under a different name, we are now The Academy for Martial Arts, and we have a program that is perfect for your child.

Lessons offered in piano, guitar, bass, drums, voice, strings, woodwinds, brass, and others. Students of all ages and levels, including adults, are welcome.
