Does anyone know of any solid Martial Arts schools in the Orlando Florida area? I am not sure, as of yet, what style I want to practice. I just want to know if there are any solid, reputable schools in my area. Thanks a lot, for the help, in advance.

The best thing to do would be to do your homework by traveling to all the different schools listed in the yellow pages. What I would suggest is not to take anyones word but see what looks like it makes the most sense to you. I wouldn't worry about who has the flashiest and biggest ad and who is a supreme grand master with a red belt yet is only 25 years old. It's been my experience that the better schools are the ones that are the plainest and don't have the hoopla to go with it. I beleive you'll know which one is right for you when you see it. Hunt well.

I travel up to Orlando on occassion. There is a simas Jujutsu group, some traditional shotokan, usheiba style aikido, Iaido etc....I suggest you contact east coast martial arts. they are a supplier but could guide you to most of the teachers in that area.

I'm not sure how far Pembroke Pines is from you, but if it is within a couple of hours, I would recommend Luis Guitierrez at One Dragon Martial Arts. Luis is a full instructor/coach in the SBGi organization ( as well as the creator of the ISR Matrix, and excellent LEO DT system.
