A Note from our Head Instructor Professor Marco Perazzo

Dear Future Student,

At New Jersey Martial Arts we strive to offer the finest in Martial Arts. We want our students to be well rounded but also effective. That is why we exclusively teach Muay Thai Kickboxing to our students that want to learn striking. Muay Thai will not only help you develop that fighting spirit that you see in the martial arts, but it will get you in amazing shape and give you the ability to defend yourself if the need arises. Ask any professional fighter or experienced REAL Martial Artist what striking art you should study? Also ask them will it help you get in shape and defend yourself? All of them will say go study Muay Thai.

When you come for your first class you will be pleasantly surprised at how much fun and how easy it is to get started learning Muay Thai. You'll learn proper stance, hand placment, footwork proper punching, kicking kneeing and elbowing.

I look forward to seeing you in class and starting you on the path to learning Martial Arts,
