Welcome to The Academy of Martial Arts – Cooper City

When you join The Academy of Martial Arts you become a part of the AOMA family. Our school environment and curriculum is developed to help you get the benefits you want for you and your child. Our goal is to help your child develop the tools for success in life, and help our adult students reach their fitness goals and learn self-defense.

As part of the AOMA family, you will enjoy access to our private Facebook pages and fun school events like Parents Night Out and many more!

The Academy of Martial Arts is owned and operated by Sensei Cynthia Rudy and her team.  Sensei Cynthia is a prominent member of our Cooper City community and is known to volunteer at many city events.

Safe & Clean Training

From our safe and convenient drive-thru drop off and pick up area to our state of the art padded floating floor training mats, safety is our top priority.  Our equipment is up to date, safe and we take pride in keeping our school fresh and clean.  Parents are always welcome to watch classes in our viewing area or drop off and pick up after class.

Family & Community

Classes are available for all ages, from 2 1/2 years up through adults.  In fact, most of our members enroll their entire family (taking advantage of our amazing family discount program) all training in their own age and level appropriate classes.

Students here motivate and encourage each other, in an open and friendly environment.  Through their training and many social events, your child will develop close friendships in and outside of the Academy which creates our family atmosphere.

All-Inclusive “No Strings Attached” Program

Unlike most martial arts academies that have extra or hidden charges, our program really is All-Inclusive.  You will never be charged testing, belt, graduation or monthly social event fees.  You will also be free of any registration fees and down payments.

Age & Belt Appropriate 


Our program and curriculum are broken down into multiple age and belt specific classes.  Whether you are in our Tiger, Dragon, Junior or Adult program, your class level will ensure that you or your child will get the most benefit out of training with us.

Caring, Enthusiastic & Passionate 


Spreading the martial arts and many benefits that come with it is not just a “hobby” for the instructors at The Academy.  We strive to help you with any challenges and struggles you may face in a caring, encouraging and professional manner.  Your growth and success is our endeavor.

  • "Such a wonderful school for my almost 4 year old and my almost 7 year old. The kids are all engaged and having a great time. They not only teach MA, but self-respect, self-discipline, and respect for others. I love that they reward achievements in school and within the family as well as growth within the program. Every class is a good workout with lots of fun for all participants, regardless of their level of mastery. I spent a lot of time choosing our school, and I am very happy with our decision"
