Our History:

US Academy of Martial Arts Inc. owner Daniel Cavaliere started martial arts training at 10 years old. Martial arts allowed him to break out of his shell and use his strength to build character. His passion was instantaneous and ignited his desire to open a martial arts school someday. Daniel dedicated his entire life to his dream. He studied kinesiology with a business emphasis in order to be well-equipped as an instructor and business owner. What started in a small dance studio with about three students has grown tremendously. Daniel is incredibly proud of the academy’s growth and his ability to live out a dream. The passion he has for martial arts broke him out of his shell and made US Academy of Martial Arts Inc. what it is today.
