Here at JAMA, we dedicate ourselves to
the development of smart, honorable, and well trained
martial artists in the Jacksonville area. At our
facility, you will notice that we train our students at
their own pace, to be sure that they are learning the proper
material correctly and diligently. Each student has
their own unique way of learning and grasping new concepts.
Master “Mr. Bill” Chiodo, strives to find the correct
tempo of techniques in order to assure the comfort of each
and every student entering our Do- Jang. Students and
instructors alike devote time, effort and focus to ensure
that each student is absolutely ready to test for the next
belt level. We do not sell belts at Julington Academy
of Martial Arts -- we provide excellent quality training
that is the MORTAR FOR BUILDING A STRONG SENSE OF JUSTICE,
FORTITUDE, HUMILITY, AND RESOLVE. It is the mental and
physical conditioning that appeals to most practitioners.
It is our goal, our discipline, our technique, and our
mental training to be sure that everyone who takes classes
becomes more than an exceptional person, but an outstanding
martial artist. We take pride in the fact that many of our students received their black belts and continue their training – have made martial arts a lifestyle commitment.
Our students are assured the best quality martial arts training because Master Chiodo's instructors, have been trained to be able to aide students in need, and have learned the most efficient styles of teaching.
Children's classes are taught based on the five tenants of Tae Kwon Do; Courtesy, Integrity, Perseverance, Self Control, and Indomitable Spirit. The tenants were specifically designed by Grand Master General Choi Hung Hoi, founder of Tae Kwon Do, who used these pillars to aid in the growth of his students. As these pillars are applied to everyday life the student will grow not only as a martial artist, but as a person. They are lifestyle choices that reinforce the values displayed in other areas of our lives. The more we expose ourselves to these core values the greater success we will have in our futures.
Our programs are unparalleled with respect to positive personal development and exceptional martial arts training. Our mission is to provide “…a warm, friendly, and positive learning environment promoting confidence and self-esteem” in everything we do. We are here to provide exceptional training without high cost, pushy sales people, or contracts. All you need to do is come in and try it out. It is our job to keep you coming back, and to ensure that you complete your journey to black belt and beyond.
