What Our Parents & Students Say


“Both my kids are attending Charlotte Martial Arts Academy and love it. They have quickly developed more confidence and look forward to going to class. Sensei runs a very structured class the keeps the children learning and engaged the whole time. I highly recommend the experience and classes!”

– parent Kyle Elworthy

“It’s really fun because you get to do fun things like play games and learn martial arts. My favorite thing is the obstacle course.”


– Nathan Slattery, Little Dragon.

“I am a woman of a mature age and have been training in martial arts at CMAA for over 4 1/2 years. The wide range of ages and abilities is amazing, and I am allowed to adapt and modify as I progress in my training. You cannot ask for a more dedicated staff and students who work incredibly hard to take their lessons of discipline and respect into their homes, schools, and work. It is my favorite place to go and exercise with people of all ages and abilities.”

– student Noelle De Atley

“I have three boys who have been taking Karate from this school for over 4 years. It continues to be the one activity that they love and beg to go to week after week. They have learned a tremendous number of skills including respecting others, giving back to the community, healthy eating and fitness habits, as well as a world of self-defense and combat skills.”
