It was time to start a Dojo. The name "International Martial Arts Academy" sounded awesome...
Thats not why we chose that name though!.. This name really suits our dojo. Its true, its real and represents what we do.
So what do we do?
Well, we present authentic martial arts, legit,with a strong lineage directly to Okinawa.
You will not be training at a McDojo, get your blackbelt in one year or wear a multicolour Gi full of badges or be doing summersalts in your katas to music.
Here you will learn true authentic OGKK Goju-Ryu and Matayoshi Kobudo.
Each grade, all medals and achievements are recognized legitimally in South Africa as well as on an International level.
When it is time to get that Black Belt, we will not download a certificate from the internet and sign it for you. Nope, your black belt certificate will come from our South African Honbu Dojo. but wait theres more! In addition to that you will be awarded another Black Belt certificate from Okinawa.
YES! This is the REAL DEAL..
At an authentic Dojo, you learn movement and application thereof. You will become a Warrior, develop a passion for martial arts and the desire to never stop learning.
..... Unfortunately we are very bad at teaching theatrical performance.
.. Luckily we are brilliant at doing and teaching REAL martial arts!
O Yes! And then, last but not least, you will love our FightFit class! Here you will become the fittest you have ever been and improve your fighting skills no matter what discipline you follow.
