The combined knowledge and experience of the staff at Yamasaki Academy of Woodbridge is unmatched in our area. Our instructors are all highly experienced Black Belts or have competed at a Professional level in their given art. While the level of expertise and experience may be what draws you to us, you will find the positive and family-like atmosphere will be what keeps you coming back. As a Yamasaki Academy school, we are also part of a bigger Yamasaki family with multiple satellite schools in the DC metro area.
Students at Yamasaki Academy of Woodbridge are more than Martial Artists, we are Combat Sport Athletes. Training in any Combat Sport requires a higher and more intense level of training to be a successful competitor. We strongly feel that training to be a successful competitor is significantly more difficult, and therefor more rewarding, than training simply for self-defense purposes.
We know that to be successful in a Combat Sport it take more than just technical skill. Our highly experienced staff are here to share their knowledge with the students, not just show a few techniques and leave it up to you to figure out the rest. Everything from proper nutrition, external conditioning routines, and mental preparation is offered to those interested in being the best combat sport athlete they can be. While not everyone in the Academy is a competitor, you will be training with high level competitors which makes all of us better.
Many other gyms will expound the successes of their coaches. Here at Yamasaki Academy of Woodbridge we feel the best advertisement is the success of our students. The success of our competitors, from our Academy Kids in grappling tournaments to our MMA fighters fighting for championship belts, has been proven time and time again. Our focus is always on you, the student, in helping you achieve your goals.
Drop us a line, we will get back to you as soon as we can. We apologize ahead of time if it takes us a few days to get back to you, we're probably on the mats training!
