Empire Academy

Over the last 30-plus years, Chris Herzog has been in and out of the ring, competing in kickboxing, judo, and Russian sambo competitions, just three of the combat styles in which he holds an instructional certification. Joined by 22-year boxing veteran Wally "The Weapon" MacDonald—nicknamed for his ability to set off airport metal detectors with his mind—the two provide comprehensive instruction in many styles of martial arts popular in professional fighting today.

The academy divides its programs into classes focused on learning a particular skill. Striking packages focus on the essentials of muay thai and Western boxing, while grappling packages draw from Brazilian jujitsu, judo, and Russian sambo. The ironfisted instructors even tailor their classes to kids, teaching character development and confidence.
