The Styles Taught at A.F.A. Karate Make Learning Martial Arts That Much Better!

Assembly of the Fighting Arts teaches a combination of Martial arts. Over the years, we have blended the philosophy and theories of (Japanese) Shotokan, (Korean) Tae Kwon-Do, Japanese & Brazilian Jiu-jitsu and American Kickboxing, Wrestling & Grappling to create a complete dynamic martial arts program. Shotokan is known for its strength with low powerful stances and strikes with body height kicks. Tae Kwon-Do is characterized by its speed and flexibility with head height kicks. Jiu-jitsu, wrestling & grappling are the core of our ground fighting system which is a crucial for self defense. Kickboxing increases endurance & stamina while using much of what is learned from other arts we teach. Sport Karate gives you that competitive edge. This combination makes A.F.A. Karate & Fitness Center successful, effective and pleasurable for the student. Assembly of the Fighting Arts provides professional instruction by their highly qualified team making this an excellent school. A.F.A. Karate is a great way to get fit, learn how to defend yourself, build confidence, reduce stress, loose weight and accomplish great goals!
