At BMA our system is American-Filipino Kun Tao. A unique blend of techniques ranging from striking, judo, ground fighting and tactical training with weapons and empty hand. The main focus of American-Filipino Kun Tao is self-defense and inner strength. Bergamo’s Martial Arts has produced multiple World Champion Martial Artists, World Record Holders and Community Leaders. Training at BMA is more than just learning how to kick and punch. It is about self-confidence, discipline, reinforcing quality character traits and being a part of a community and family!
Bergamo's Martial Arts (BMA) has been paving the way for students of all ages to find their true potential through it's Martial Arts and Fitness Programs. Each student's reasons for attending, and their goals in training, vary in many ways. At BMA we are well aware of this, and work with each student so they can achieve their full potential and gain the most from their training.
Our children's programs instill self-discipline, respect, and focus, as well as the physical fitness and self-defense aspects associated with Martial Arts training. We believe in a proactive approach to building a strong foundation for our younger students to build on over the years. The positive image our instructors project to our students, and the constant encouragement, support, and interaction with the student and parent alike, are very important in building the strong bonds we have here at BMA.
This can be seen from the moment you walk into our studios, or observed at an open event. Each student's reasons for attending, and their goals in training, vary in many ways. At BMA we are well aware of this, and work with each student so they can achieve their full potential and gain the most from their training.
Although some students are at home in the studio as well as outside the studio, there are some who must overcome uncommon challenges. We have worked with children and youth groups with various challenges, such as: troubled youth, A.D.D., overweight, low self-esteem, lack of coordination, and children that feel they don't fit in anywhere. BMA takes pride in the leaps and bounds we have helped to produce in such groups; from the troubled youth who starts to gain an identity and finds self-respect, to that child with low self-esteem whose parents watch proudly as their child stands tall and executes techniques in front of a gymnasium full of people. Your child is important to us and we want them to be the best they can be; in the studio, at home, and in life!
Our adult practitioners make up a wide cross-section of society. From the blue collar worker, to law enforcement professionals, to full-time mothers, to the avid athlete. Our adult programs provide: positive stress release, a creative exercise platform, the empowerment of "Real-Life" Self-Defense skills, and unity not found in other social arenas. For adults especially, it's not about just kicking and punching. We work with you to get the most out of your training at BMA, while giving you the opportunity to excel to the level of your choosing. Whether you are in it for exercise, self-defense, or to become a "World Champion" (a title which we are proud to say that many of our students hold), we can help you achieve your goal!
