We started Vital Martial Arts Academy to teach children the skills they need to succeed in life. Your daughter will learn how to believe in herself and stand strong. Your son will learn that he can excel at anything he puts his mind to. Your child will learn to pursue their dreams relentlessly and to never give up.

We are a family-oriented martial arts school teaching modern Kung Fu (also called Wushu) to men, women, and children of all ages. At VMAA, our primary focus is on the development of the student, both in terms of personal growth and physical exercise.

VMAA has experienced instructors that provide the opportunity for students to compete in all categories of Chinese martial arts tournaments at the local, regional, national and international levels.

I’m a preschool teacher and met Sifu Vitaly 11 years ago when he taught martial arts at our school. Students loved in him and his karate classes. Sifu is very professional and passionate about the martial arts he teaches. I'm really happy about his new school, Vital Martial Arts Academy. Yes, the classes are hard, but in a very good way; you will sweat, you will learn, and you will have a great time doing so. If you are looking for a great workout, want to learn a new skill, or are just looking for a fun new activity, I highly recommend giving Vital Martial Arts Academy a try!
