Founded by Chief Master William Clark, Karate America is a popular martial-arts school that believes martial arts can make people happier and healthier. With locations around Florida, Karate America is staffed by highly trained instructors teaching children and adults the self-defense moves of tae kwon do, krav maga, and kickboxing. While training in a team-like atmosphere in each of these classes, members learn self-discipline and respect, gain lean muscle, and burn calories.
Martial Arts is the one the best and most effective ways to build self discipline, self confidence, hand eye coordination, balance, weight loss, and personal defense. Sport Kung Fu Academy of Jacksonville offers a variety of membership options to better serve YOU! All memberships are month-to-month with NO CONTRACTS.
Jacksonville Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu's certified Gracie Jiu-Jitsu instructor, Larry Shealy, focuses on leverage, timing, and technique—giving men and women of all ages the ability to physically overpower attackers and crazed lawn ornaments, regardless of their size. Brazilian jiu-jitsu also tones the body, dispels stress, and boosts confidence in a safe, respectful environment. In Women’s Self-Defense, simulated street situations teach ladies how to avoid physical confrontations by setting verbal and physical boundaries⎯as well as how to defend themselves if their attempts at cartography fail. Muay Thai kickboxing, also known as "the science of eight limbs" or "octopusology," boosts mental focus and physical fitness for no-holds-barred riddle contests and wedding-dress fittings. Child and adolescent specialist Robyn J. A. Silverman bully-proofs kids ages 4–14 with rock-solid values and soaring self-esteem in the popular Kid-Jitsu program.

Asbury Arts Center owner Jeanne Glogowski taps experience on both sides of the curtain—boasting bachelor's and master's degrees in dance—to oversee an eclectic array of dance classes for children and adults of all experience levels. Instructors gather budding dancers, fitness-minded patrons, and experienced shimmiers in practice rooms lined with mirrors to ensure both students and teachers can keep an eye out for proper form during dance, yoga, and martial-arts classes. Hammier classes include lessons in performing arts and music, giving patrons the opportunity to test their performing chops under the same level of personalized attention they enjoy in the studio’s fitness classes and during IRS audits.
