Master Blacks Karate Logo“My family and I have been members here since 2013. It’s a fun, family-oriented place to learn Martial Arts, not to mention getting and/or staying in shape. The instructors are extremely knowledgeable and caring. Having tried the fad gyms & workouts with little or not results, this was a last resort for me personally. Since attending Master Black’s karate classes and fitness classes, I’ve lost over 20lbs, and I’ve regained confidence and energy that I haven’t had in years. We plan on being members for a long time to come.”
– Jon McNiece

Master Blacks Karate Logo“I started at Master Black’s Martial Arts in the summer of 2003 at 10 years old. I was HOOKED instantly. I loved attending classes where I felt included and important. I could learn at my own pace and I learned to set my own goals with teh guidance of strong leaders around me. I received individualized attention and learned various skills that I can honestly say is the #1 reason I have succeeded in so many areas of my life (other sports such as tennis, track, college cheerleading and most importantly, in school, and relationships, and my self-worth). For 8 years of my life the instructors and my fellow peers at MBMA took the time and energy to invest in me. The training I received like so many others help to make healthy, happy, and successful leaders and members of the community!”
