For over 30 years, the International Martial Arts & Boxing Academy has played an important role in the personal
growth and professional development of thousands of students locally, nationally, and internationally.
With over ten thousand square feet of floor space, the IMB Academy is one of the largest and most complete martial art
schools in the South Bay area. Our classes are conducted in the main training room on a high quality matted floor. Our facility
also offers a fully equipped weight room and an open workout room with a boxing ring, speed and heavy bags, allowing students
to train independently from their scheduled class times.
The IMB Academy takes a non-traditional
approach towards Martial Arts training, focusing more on the individual and less on the style in which they study, because
no single martial art style is applicable to each and every person. Students, as individuals, are different in size, physical
ability, interest level and goals. The "JKD" classes provide a controlled atmosphere that allows IMB students to safely experience
multiple types of disciplines. This process enables them to absorb that which is most practical and functional.
