Cassady Martial Arts Academy in Macomb

At Cassady Martial Arts Academy we focus on empowering lives through martial arts. We do this through reality-based self-defense for adults and anti-bullying with self-defense for kids. By using a universal blend of martial arts styles to prepare our students for virtually any situation, we can be sure our community members and their children will be prepared for anything life throws their way.

Total Beginners Welcome! Our students come from all different backgrounds and experience levels. We love to work with beginners, elite athletes, stay at home parents, children in need of encouragement.

Basically, what we look for more than anything else is a willingness to learn. That’s it! With a motivated foundation, everything else can fall into place.

No matter what your starting level is, you’ll get a great workout, gain lean muscle, and learn techniques to keep you and your family safe.

Classes are dynamic, fast paced, and always great fun!

  • In self defense - we incorporate aspects of Krav Maga, Muay Thai, and Kenpo Karate as well as a main focus on Jiu Jitsu.
  • In Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu - learn how to use your entire body, from the ground up! No matter what your size is, you’ll learn locking, leverage, and wrestling techniques to master any opponent, anywhere.
  • Now offering 4-5 year old classes! We’re always looking for ways to expand our curriculum to meet the needs of the community we serve and are a part of. In addition to our kids class, we have an introductory class to teach basics for 4 - 5 year olds.
