  • Traditional Martial Arts Training

    East Morris Karate Academy

    (10 reviews)

    My son has been a student at East Morris Karate Academy for about 2 years. When we decided to start him in Karate - knowing nothing about martial arts training - we looked on the web for Karate schools in Morris County. The first website to pop up on the list was for East Morris Karate so I starting reading. Mr. Musco posted an article called "Consumer Guide - Tips and Info for Self-Defense in Self-Defense Shopping" - so I read it. It taught me that karate instruction is basically unregulated and to take my time picking a school because there are good schools out there if you are willing to find them. But what the article tipped me off to is the integrity and passion that Mr. Musco brings to teaching Karate. I thought to myself, "Wow, if this person took the time to write this article and actually educate people then he must really care about what he is teaching." So I called him and we talked. At the time my son was only 4 years old. Mr. Musco explained that instruction typically starts at age 5 and suggested that I come back when my son was a little older. So we waited. But again I was left with the feeling that this school was different because they weren't just after taking my money because I was an eager parent. I did check out some other schools but in the end, for me, my first impression of East Morris Karate stuck. And after 2 years I have found that my first impression has been the lasting impression. The people here...Mr. Musco and all the instructors truly care about what they are teaching. They are patient, encouraging, consistent and kind. The students learn and progress at their own pace. There is no favoritism or short cuts. Expectations are the same whether you are a black belt or a beginner. My son looks up to his instructors as role models and, from them, is learning the value of hard work and dedication while having fun studying karate. For us, coming the East Morris Karate was the best decision. But what we found once we got here is more then just a school for karate, but a karate family. Erin L. (parent)

  • MMA, Karate & Martial Arts

    Karate Staten Island

    From several disciplines of martial arts, we draw our talent, knowledge and teaching style from. We have developed an effective martial arts system by combining different aspects of it, based on fundamentals of Russian real hand-to-hand military combat, Sambo, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, RyuKyu kempo (Okinawan form of karate), Judo, and Mixed Martial Arts (MMA). These skills include different aspects of pressure point techniques, ground grappling, joint locking, throwing, kicking, and punching. We concentrate on teaching students from 4 years old through 20 year old adults. S.I. Karate and its instructors understand that teaching should depend on the age of the student. It is for this reason that classes are structured by age and experience. We have advanced classes for peewees (ages 4-8), juniors (ages 9-14), and adults (ages 14 and up), as well as for beginners and intermediate. While all classes have similar curriculum, it is the method that varies in which the classes are taught.

  • Practical Personal Protection

    BuddhaStrike Combatives

    The BuddhaStrike Combatives method will be taught. This is an ever-evolving personal protection system committed to helping students survive violent confrontations. Unarmed defense will encompass striking, kicking, trapping, clinching, grappling and joint-locking techniques. Weapons training on various impact and bladed weapons are also taught with an emphasis on legal-to-carry, portable weaponry. I've trained in several martial arts. I enjoyed my training and respect all of the systems that I studied. However, the eclectic form of Jiu jitsu that I train in and teach takes the individual into account. The techniques taught are customized to the practitioner (e.g. body type, physical abilities, etc.) and not the other way around. This is due to the fact that the focus is on understanding physical concepts (e.g. levers and centrifugal force). When you understand physical principles, the techniques will come.
