7765 Preserve Lane, Unit 1 & 2, Naples, FL 34119
I remember feeling uncertainty about beginning martial arts. I wondered if I had what it took to succeed and I wasn’t the most athletic or confident person - quite the opposite. Little did I know that beginning my martial arts journey would be one of the most profound experiences of my life!
I have been training in the art of Goju Ryu Karate for over 25 years and established the Stranger Danger Collier program which has educated thousands of Collier County children annually.
When I opened my school in 2000, I made a commitment to serving and empowering the community of Naples by teaching children and adults the confidence, leadership, and fitness skills that can only be achieved through martial arts.

Karate and Tai Chi are the styles of martial arts practiced by Academy of Martial Arts students. Traditional karate training focuses on fighting and self-defense using hand strike techniques and kicking. The mental and moral aspects of karate target the overall improvement of the individual. Tai Chi is an active meditation that creates harmony between mind and body.
The journey from White Belt to Black Belt is one of incremental learning and skill development, that students of any age and fitness level can embark on.
One of the most fun parts of martial arts training is the ability to test your skills by competing in a tournament. Tournaments are not only fun for competitors, but they also become a great social experience for parents as well!
From sparring to forms to team demos, these awesome competitions are not only a place where our students can test their skills, but also a place where team spirit is built, fears are overcome, and character is developed. Most importantly, they are tons of fun!
