The JMAC Approach

People who practice budo are members of a special group. They are seekers of truth, people who want something more from life than a paycheck and a nice home. They make unique contributions to their communities and to the world. They seek the true Japanese martial arts experience.

Here at JMAC, we make ourselves better through consistent, long-term practice. We like being in shape, we like having a mission of personal improvement, and we like knowing that we have a place where our instructors are also devoted to a lifetime of self-improvement.

The ideal martial artist:

  • Sets high standards for him or herself.

  • Abides by a code of personal conduct.

  • Values sincerity and politeness.

  • Is loyal, honor-bound, and courageous.

Training the Whole Person:
