Teaching since 1999

Sensei Roberts and Sensei Price moved to Charlotte from Aurora, Colorado, to start their own martial arts academy. In 1996, they took over a Martial Arts America location on Kings Drive. Three years later they bought the studio and renamed it the Charlotte Martial Arts Academy. Within a year, student enrollment doubled. By 2003, it was time to move to a new, bigger location.

Our Facilities

Our spacious studio is devoted to martial arts with floor-to-ceiling mirrors along the wall for students and instructors to monitor progress while working on the mats. Our mat flooring is made of ethylene-vinyl acetate foam — the same material used often in sport’s shoes to absorb shock — so it’s a safe surface on which our students can practice martial arts without causing undue stress to bones and muscles. We also work hard to keep the mat surfaces clean by asking all students and spectators to remove their shoes in the academy’s main lobby.
