As a black belt, you have
proven yourself to be someone who strives to
achieve unusual and exceptional things.
The dedication, sacrifice, devotion, and
investment required to earn your black belt
tells that you have a strong work ethic, sense of
mission, and passion for your art. Those
are characteristics that we want to teach and
emulate to the students in our programs.
We value the richness that
comes from diversity. Each martial arts
style is based on different principles and
philosophies. Training and expertise in
multiple styles will add to the skills and
knowledge of all students. We want black
belts from a variety of traditional styles who
possess a passion for family and
fitness-oriented martial arts training to be
involved in our programs.
At TMAC, we want to introduce
family and fitness-oriented martial arts
training to as many people as possible. To
do that, we must grow the number of instructors
and program leaders in our school. Most
traditional schools require their instructors to
have worked their ways up through the ranks of
their own particular schools and style. We
believe that it is possible to create a martial
arts school comprised of instructors and
practitioners of many different styles. By
collaborating, cooperating, and not being
concerned about stealing students from each
other, we can create a new type of school--a
true mixed martial arts school.
We currently have instructors
with black belts in kajukenbo, tae kwon do,
american karate, and isshin-ryu karate. This diversity has allowed
us to truly become a "martial arts center" more
so than just a school devoted to a single style.
As a black belt at TMAC, you
will help influence and shape the programs at
our school. Benefits include:
discounts for training.
waivers for helping teach classes in our
existing programs (assist in two classes
per week or teach one per week) or
starting your own program.
