Few names carry more weight in the martial arts world than Bruce Lee, the legendary fighter who created Jeet Kune Do and starred in classic martial arts films such as Enter the Dragon. There's a strong bond that ties him to Nubreed Martial Arts Academy—the academy's founders, Luigi Orlando Cuellar and Alexander Chan, belong to Lee's training lineage.
Unsurprisingly, the academy's instructors teach Lee's signature Jeet Kune Do, but their programs also include boxing, muay thai, and Brazilian jujitsu. To accommodate the array of classes, the 10,000-square-foot facility features a boxing ring, an MMA ring, and wooden wing chun dummies that teach students how to effectively fight a tree.
Toyotaro Miyazaki first donned his karate gi at the age of 15, when he began studying under Tomasaburo Okano. His journey into the world of martial arts took him to numerous competitions, landed him on the covers of magazines such as Black Belt and Karate Illustrated, and eventually brought him to New York. Once there, he opened his own dojo, Shotokai-USA, where he has taught for more than 40 years.
Like his masters before him, Miyazaki and his staff of teachers pass on the knowledge of shotokan karate’s unarmed and weapon-based fighting styles. They take students aged 3 and up from white belt to black belt, teaching them self-defense, self-discipline, and an acute distaste for two-by-fours.

The teachers always prescribe the same medicine: a few weeks in Kids Love Martial Arts classes. The physical aspect of the training engages the youthful participants, but it's the less tangible results that can help them positively channel their energy and confidently stare down the karate-practicing monster under the bed.
