There is a reason why students that succeed here succeed in all aspects of life...

MMAC was built around the traditional Japanese art of karate in all of its forms. The programs here seek to find students who are willing to commit themselves to karate permanently and make it an active part of their lives. They are taught to embrace the culture and work ethic because there are no short cuts here.

Maturity, balance, and discipline...

MMAC is an asset to the Ahwatukee community, providing traditional martial arts training where discipline is learned and advancement is earned. This is a traditional Japanese dojo, where everyone doesn't get a medal and you don't buy your child's blackbelt in 2 years; enablement, entitlement, and excuses are not tolerated.

This is the only dojo you should consider...

You get to train and sweat next to your second family, and you will be instructed by some of the greatest role models you will ever meet. Training there provided me with an overwhelming amount of love and discipline. And Wado-Ryu is a vigorous martial art that is incredibly active, intriguing, and FUN. You would be crazy not to become a student here.
