Martial Arts Fitness Academy Owner

Hi, I’m Master Chad Wilbur.

I KNOW HOW DIFFICULT AND CONFUSING
FINDING A MARTIAL ARTS SCHOOL CAN BE.

I remember when I was child, feeling uncertainty about beginning martial arts. I wondered if I had what it took to succeed and I wasn’t the most athletic or confident child - quite the opposite. Little did I know that beginning my martial arts journey would be one of the most profound experiences of my life!

When I was a child, I began my martial arts journey and the positive impact it had on my life was remarkable. It was always my dream to someday own my own school and when I opened Martial Arts Fitness Academy in 2001, I made a commitment to our community in Tallahassee to create an enjoyable environment for students to improve their fitness while building confidence they can carry into their everyday lives. It is my privilege and honor to take the the knowledge I have received in my own martial arts training and pass it on to the students at my school.

We Share & teach The Same Values You Teach At Home.

The MAFA Martial Arts programs have a strong focus on personal development. The foundations of our morals, values and core character traits are formed in our early years. For this reason, the MAFA Martial Arts program is an essential way to enhance the growth and personal development of young students of all ages.

FUN, EXCITEMENT & PREPARATION: MARTIAL ARTS TOURNAMENTS!

One of the most fun parts of martial arts training is the ability to test your skills by competing in a tournament. Tournaments are not only fun for competitors, but they also become a great social experience for parents as well! MAFA students compete in local tournaments against other schools, advancing from District levels, to State levels, to a yearly Spring National competition.
