This is a phenomenal school. The quality and caliber of the school and the training is exceptional. It embodies mind, body and spirit. It is truly all about the flow. Learn how to defend yourself, have fun, use different weapons, in a safe environment. The trainers are also exceptional all rooting for you to succeed and do your best. It is a great school, community and family. You can't help but fall in love with the whole package.
I've been training at the WMAC for a couple of years now and I really enjoy it. The instructors are fabulous and always there to help you improve your martial arts and get you to the next level.
They offer multiple classes every day which makes it easy for me to be able to attend class.
It's a great school, I highly recommend it!
I've had the most incredible experience coming here to train. I've never been healthier or happier and so much of it is due to the phenomenal program and excellent instructors at this dojang. I never write reviews, but the World Martial Arts Center deserves the praise. If your on the fence about it, give it a try for a week. It will be one of the best decisions you make, one that will change your life for the better.
Grandmaster SaBumNim David L. Herbert has been teaching HapKiDo, a Korean martial art, in New York City for about 30 years now. His school, The World Martial Arts Center, provides a high-level of training and instruction in weapons and open-hand forms and techniques, many of which are useful real-life self-defense skills. The school offers a safe and clean environment for morning, mid-day, and afternoon classes as well as an afternoon children’s program. It is also one of the few school in the area that is dedicated to serious training; it is not an assembly-line black-belt factory.
There are few places I know of where adults and children are truly taught martial arts in a way which is customized for the individual. WMAC offers not only a comprehensive martial arts program but allows the individual to learn and grow at a pace which is best for that student. Physical, mental and emotional growth are inevitable with consistent practice. The children's program is wonderful and the children's summer program is one of the best.
Four years ago I was looking for a martial arts school for my son, who at the time was 7 years old. I did some research and found World Martial Arts Center, and I began bringing him to children’s classes every Saturday.
After a year of bringing my son every week to class, I decided to try a class myself. Participating as an adult student revealed an entirely different side of WMAC to me: I felt the power and encouragement of the devoted and highly-trained instructors, and even as a newcomer to the training floor I experienced the support and love of the other WMAC members who trained alongside me. Once I tried it, I knew that this is where I belonged, and I embarked on my own martial arts journey of personal growth and self-discovery.
Finding WMAC has been one of the best things to happen to me and my family. Training has not only helped me keep physically fit, but has opened realms of spiritual experience to me that I couldn’t have imagined.
On that Sunday afternoon four years ago, when I put on a white belt for the first time and walked onto the mats, I only thought about getting some exercise and sharing a physical activity with my son. I had no idea that the physical training was a doorway into a deep personal practice that has touched many parts of my life. It’s exciting to think that you, reading this review, might be on the threshold of undertaking a journey like mine.
My granddaughter has been attending the children's program for the past five months and I've attended each session with her. The program and teachers have been phenomenal in bringing out her inner warrior. The confidence and poise she now exhibits is directly related to this school.
Training at WMAC can elevate your life to a whole other level. Not only does your physical strength improve but your mind and soul are nourished through the wisdom and support of our instructors and fellow members of the Dojang. One of the best decisions I've ever made!
I've studied Martial Arts and many styles since I was 6 yrs old. World Martial Arts Center is by far the most complete school I have trained at. Master Herbert and his entire team are incredible to new students, lovers of the arts, and the children program is unbelievable! My daughter, wife, and I all have been training her for 5 yrs now as this feels like our family as much as it is our Dojang to train and study. As small business owners in Brooklyn, we look forward to hosting our first team building activity here with all of our employees. Thank you Master David Herbert and World Martial Arts Center.
