Welcome to World Martial Arts Academy....and community!
World Martial Arts Academy was founded in 1984 by former Beijing Wushu Team member Master Jinheng Li with the goal to promote and practice "Wushu" as a contemporary Chinese Sport, as well as a way of life to increase health, fitness and wellness in modern society.
Our goal is to let our students reach their highest potential in the martial arts. Our instructors are trained from China's best masters so that we may bring to you the most authentic Wushu possible within a safe environment.
Opened in 1984, we are Arizona's oldest standing Wushu schools. Our 10,000 square foot facility has all the room needed to train in competition forms. For student safety the training floor is covered by competition style mats. Additional training equipment includes crash mats, spring board, stretching machines, exercise equipment, and more. Amenities include plenty of seating for friends and relatives and a pro shop for all your training needs.
We offer a wide variety of courses for children and adults in both contemporary and traditional martial arts. We operate out of downtown Phoenix, Arizona as well as teaching at several affiliate programs around the valley. We have both group and private lessons available, as well as periodic seminars by martial arts masters. We host and attend yearly events and competitions both locally and out of state, and plan occasional trips to China for training and travel.
