About World Martial Arts Academy in Kearny, NJ

Alex Silva

Owner and Chief Instructor at World Martial Arts Academy in Kearny, 4th Dan

World Martial Arts Academy (WMAA) �is a family oriented school with one motto in mind: �To build the people of today for a better tomorrow�. �We first opened our doors on March 1995 by Grandmaster S.D. Yoon and are �affiliated with Kukkiwon World Taekwondo Academy, an international organization in Korea that regulates and maintains the traditions of Taekwondo. We are also a proud member of the World Taekwondo Federation - the Olympic sporting organization of Taekwondo.

Teens, adults, and children enjoy our super-fun classes which are rooted in the traditional martial art of taekwondo. Mixed with modern teaching styles and techniques, �we are able to give you the most robust and complete taekwondo experiences around.

Whether you want to enhance your martial arts skills, simply get fitter in a fun new way, or find an amazing outlet for your child�s wonderful energy we have the tools to meet your goals!

We love beginners but are able to work with all fitness levels. You�ll be pushed to your limits...in a good way! No military style yelling or calling out students. Positive motivation will push you to be your best! As you develop amazing kicking, striking, and self-defense moves you�ll also notice a strong emphasis placed on personal development, leadership, and goal-setting in all classes.

Some additional benefits of training include:

  • A big boost in confidence.
  • Greater self-discipline.
  • Laser like focus.
  • Enhanced flexibility and muscle tone.

We also have a TON of FUN! Both kids and adults have a blast in our classes. Kicking and striking drills enhance coordination and high fives are as commonplace as the high kicks you�ll learn!

Jump, kick, roll...you�ll learn super cool self-defense moves that will get you in the best shape of your life! We lead by example and show students how to have fun while pushing through challenges together. The �Classes� link in the menu above is where we break down what it is we do in each class and where you can find that super low web-special going on too! Wouldn�t want you to miss out.
