NY Martial Arts Academy was established in 1985. Over the years we have taught over 10,000 students and we are one of the oldest schools in New York. We teach Bruce Lee’s martial art, known as Jeet Kune Do. Through the years we have maintained our high standards through small group lessons, personalized attention and constant interaction with our students. Martial arts is our passion and we love teaching students who are willing to learn.
We have a variety of martial arts classes which will teach you the various aspects of combat and the philosophical elements of becoming a better person.
The technical aspect of the classes includes elements form muay thai, boxing, jiujitsu and kickboxing. Elbows and knees are prevalent in muay thai but are also a part of Jeet Kune Do. Bruce Lee studied boxing and fencing when developing his art. We borrow certain elements from jiujitsu when addressing self defense situations on the ground.
Physical Fitness is another important component of our program. We promote strength, flexibility and endurance training in every class. Also, the program is tailored to fit each student’s needs and capabilities. We have students who enroll at all skill and fitness levels. Our academy has been in existence for almost 30 years and since that time we have almost seen it all. Students have entered overweight and lost as much as 80 pounds.
If you are looking to get in great shape make sure to ask about our JKD kickboxing classes. The kickboxing aspect of our are teaches real self defense but can also get you stronger, faster and more energized.
Our instructions have a collective 365 years of martial arts experience and are willing to share their knowledge with you!
Our after school program for children gives our students the discipline and focus of karate. The techniques that we teach are much better for self defense than karate but we borrow some of the discipline and focus drills from various karate arts. Our bully prevention program for children will give your child the ability to stand up to a bully and stop the altercation before it ever becomes physical.
Our Glen Cove Long Island location is conveniently located in a shopping center with plenty of parking.
