Palm Beach County’s Most Diverse Martial Arts School!



Welcome to Martial Arts of the Palm Beaches, the premier martial arts school in Palm Beach County, Florida, offering Aikido, Judo, Jujitsu, Iaido, Tae Kwon Do, Karate Do and kobudo for physical fitness, self-defense, combat and competition for people ages 7 to 70+.

Students invest their valuable resources in us, because we offer the most detailed, diverse, and expansive curriculum in the Palm Beach area.  Whether you are interested in one or several of the martial arts, specialized classes are given on six different and complementary martial arts, rather than hodgepodge “all-in-one” classes typically offered at other studios.  The school also offers Cardio Kickboxing and MMA/Muay Thai for further diversify and cross-training purposes. 

By offering the martial arts individually, students can clearly grasp the strengths and benefits of each distinct form while understanding how they complement one another. Martial Arts of the Palm Beaches is unquestionably the most synergistic and complete martial arts school in Palm Beach County. Our program, which combines eight of the most popular martial arts taught in America, develops enthusiastic students from beginner to intermediate to advanced levels quickly. With us, a student can become the strongest martial artist that is possible for their natural abilities

We feature a wide variety of group classes each day (for all levels of experience from beginners thru advanced), as well as private, individualized instruction. With your input, we customize a training program that is specific to your needs and goals – leaving you with a broad-ranged, comprehensive, truly personalized program. This is unique to our school.

While we teach ancient arts from Japan and Korea, our training facility is a blend of traditional and contemporary styles. The fully matted floor and modern training equipment makes learning safe and fun for all ages. Visitors, parents and students appreciate our relaxed atmosphere and the comfortable learning environment. Kids can entertain themselves in our play room while parents train; we also offer a quieter computer and homework space for school-age children.
