Our History

Our History - New York Martial Arts Academy - academyIn 1985 NY Martial Arts Academy was the first school in the tri-state area to teach Jeet Kune Do. Since that time there have been over 4,500 students trained at our academy. Through the years we have maintained our high standards through small group lessons, personalized attention and constant interaction with our students.
 
NY Martial Arts Academy was the first school in the tri-state area to be recognized by the Jun Fan Jeet Kune Do Nucleus (an organization established to preserve and perpetuate the art that Bruce Lee developed). This organization consisted of Bruce Lee's wife, daughter, first generation and second generation students. This organization and our school have a common purpose to promote the art, science and philosphy of the founder of JKD (Bruce Lee). We are one of the only schools on the East Coast to teach Jun Fan Jeet Kune Do.
 
Our academy offers unlimted JKD classes six days a week with specialty classes at no extra cost. This is also an academy that will teach you the different aspects of Jeet Kune Do (mind, body and spirit). You will also develop friendships and a common respect for your fellow martial artists.  These are some of the reasons our academy has attracted businessmen, doctors, lawyers, accountants, professional athletes (members of the New York Jets, professional basketball players from Europe), NYC police officers, customs, immigration and US Secret Service special agents to train at our academy.
