Hear what our students have to say!
Before becoming a student and NY Martial Arts Academy, I researched and visited several different schools. I choose NYMAA becuase when I first came, Sifu Dino and the students very genuinely welcomed me as a guest in their school. Sifu Dino and the senior instructors are good instructors. They care about what I am doing and how well I perform while helping me to become better. I choose to continue training here because I feel comfortable and at home in this school.- CPA and Student of NY Martial Arts Academy
NY Martial Arts Academy is a great place to train. Classes have a cooperative, rather than competitive, atmosphere; my classmates help me learn and achieve. Sifu Dino has a friendly and relaxed (but no-nonsense) teaching style. He is always eager to share his encylopedic knowledge of Bruce Lee's art with his students.- Dentist and Student of NY Martial Arts Academy
