Our Philosophy

At the Independent Martial Arts School, our long heritage and deep bench of experienced instructors enhances our reputation of providing a safe and effective teaching environment.

Launched in 2019, the IMAS is committed to making self-defense training accessible for all willing students, and to emphasize the broader role that martial artists play in their communities.

Through the vehicle of self-defense, we emphasize character development and traits such as focus, courage, discipline, and kindness. 

Our flexible schedule allows students to balance their Martial Arts education with other life commitments. 

No long-term financial commitments or contracts are ever required. We offer monthly memberships that can be cancelled at anytime.
