The instructor's are amazing.. It's a family oriented which I love. They give the kids confidence and structure. They show the kids how to give and earn respect. My kids look forward to karate.

Truly one of the best martial arts schools in the country! They are the real deal and offer a very well rounded martial arts curriculum from top to bottom! You will be very impressed with their team and students.
We all should live for kids! We live for our son Alessandro. We will go to end of the Earth to give our precious boy the best. For almost 2 years, we did just that, more my wife did. We used to live in Brickell Key. After checking numerous Martial Arts schools in the Brickell area, so many things were missing, from Discipline, True Leaders, Energy, Respect, Passion from the Instructors... As soon as, I showed my wife a Youtube video. The explosiveness, hard-core energy, respect in that video sold us. The instructors bio are amazing: Master Lipsky started off at age of 12, Sensei Lazo since he was 8, Assistant Parea 8, Assistant Solis 4 years old, and of course the owners son Ulysses. There is absolutely no other school with that kind of loyalty and commitment.
For about 2 years, we drove our son 45 miles in Miami traffic round trip 3 times a week almost 5 years ago. One of the best decisions we ever made for our son. Our son was bullied by one of his friends when he was 4, that quickly ended. Alessandro is now 9 years old, he
has become a very positive, confident, courageous little man. All of this has reflected in
his academic work as well, Straight A's.
This school has it all. Not only do ALL of the instructors demand respect, but they always show each and every child respect. No other school has philosophies such as this one:
Based on the founders of martial arts, Samurai. Samurai's Moral Conduct is represented in AKI's teachings daily: Honesty, Integrity, Politeness, Loyalty, Compassion, Courage and Justice.
However, I ask all of you parents reading this, please show your precious cargo respect as well. When you take your child to the classes, please put the iPhones down, don't be texting while your child will be constantly looking for your encouragement, approval and love. It's sad
to see the kid's faces when they look over to their parents and they are too busy looking down at their phones.
Trust us, this will be one of the BEST INVESTMENTS you will give your child.
This karate school is amazing. They have the best instructors. My daughter has been a student for about a year now and I have seen a change for the better in her. I would def recommend to anyone in the area.
Best martial arts school in Miami. School has been open for 35 years. The instructors are nurturing but firm with the little ones. The curriculum encompasses several fighting styles which makes the students much more well rounded fighters. I love that they don't give away belts. The students must truly exhibit proficiency and mastery in order to advance in belt levels. My 4 year old will definitely be a long time student at AKI!
