Black Belt Academy

The Black Belt Academy is an advanced program designed for those who have earned a black belt (Shodan Rank) under the United States Academy of Martial Arts and want to pursue advancement in the black belt ranks.  Black Belt Academy Members are some of the highest level martial artists and their advanced training is sure to be both challenging and rewarding.

At each black belt rank (degree), the advanced student will grow in their depth of knowledge in one of our six major martial arts styles. For example, the Shodan (1st degree) black belt will shift their focus more toward training in the art of Brazilian Jiu-jitsu and the art of Kobudo (Okinawan Weapons).  Each degree of black belt will explore a different art with more focus.  The growth potential for an advanced student a the US Academy of Martial Arts is nearly endless!

Private Lessons

Private lessons can improve your progression two to three times faster than taking group classes alone. Group lessons are beneficial because they allow you to see how different people of different sizes and temperament react to situations and techniques.  The ideal program will include both group lessons and private lessons.  Check with us for assistance in developing a personalized training program that utilizes the best of both worlds.
