I started training at Leclerc's last Fall during my Junior year at Marist College. Master Leclerc, his staff, and students, made me feel welcome the moment I stepped through the door. I have trained in martial arts for over ten years, and served as a lead instructor at a karate school on Long Island where I live while not attending Marist. If you are looking for a school that gives a great workout, teaches quality martial arts, and has plenty of opportunities to make great friends- this is the school for you.
I returned from studying abroad in Italy two weeks ago. I spent four months in Florence and had some of the greatest experiences of my life. One of these experiences was being invited to compete with Master Leclerc and his team in Cardiff, Wales. Being offered this opportunity made my study abroad experience all the more worth wild. I can't wait to return to Marist for my senior year and become more involved in the academy!
Leclerc's Martial Arts is the greatest investment I could ever have made for my family. My four boys and I all train, and my wife does cardio kickboxing. Our time at the karate school has brought us closer then we have ever been. The atmosphere is positive, safe and supportive -- the perfect place for both children and adults to deal with and learn how to overcome challenges of all kinds. The instructors are of the highest caliber and foster physical and emotional growth by stressing the value of character development. I can't imagine a better way to spend my evenings then to train with both my immediate family and my karate family.
State of the art dojos, fantastic instructors, and great group of students. The energy in the dojo is positive, welcoming, friendly, motivating, and very high energy. Whether you are looking for a traditional martial arts experience, for sport, or both, LMA will take you to new heights.
