Message from school owner

Master Michael Brown is a seventh degree black belt in Taekwondo and a certified instructor in Krav Maga. He is a two time world champion in sparring and a former Captain in the United States Marine Corps. Master Brown has been working with families and training people in personal defense in North Carolina for over 25 years. Leadership Krav Maga under the tutelage of Master Brown was the first school in North Carolina certified under Krav Maga World Wide.

He and his wife, Master Kimberly Brown are advocates for children and are passionate about them becoming responsible leaders in their communities. They recognize the trauma to families brought on by bullying and prepare their students to handle these situations. They use training in the lifeskills of discipline, courtesy, respect and self control to help their students to become confident and successful children inside the classroom and out.

Master Brown and his wife also work with military personnel to enhance their hand to hand combat skills and battle readiness all to improve thier safety and overall job performance. They also train law enforcement and civilians to develop the skills that will enable them to be the ‘First Responders’ for their families.

ATA Leadership Martial Arts proudly serves the communities of; Fort Bragg, Fayetteville NC, Hope Mills NC, Spring Lake NC, Linden NC

Why should I join Leadership Martial Arts:

“We regularly have students transferring in from other schools, because of job placements and Military orders. When we have a student moving away from the area we try to match them up with a new school. We recommend that our students look for 4 things when selecting a new school.

1. An established history in the community for 10 years if possible as so many schools close within the 1st few years of operation it is important to pick a school that will be here for the long run. Leadership Martial Arts and Masters Michael & Kimberly Brown have been operating schools in NC for over 20 years.

2. Make sure the instructors are Certified as instructors not just black belts as black belt means expert practitioner you also need someone who is trained to share that expert knowledge with others. At Leadership Martial Arts all of our instructors are Internationally Certified through the ATA and Krav Maga Worldwide and they complete no less than 300 training hours learning instruction in addition to their curriculum to become black belts.

3. Make sure the school has National or International accreditation. So that when you earn a Black Belt it will carry some weight outside of your own school. The Leadership Martial Arts schools are all sanctioned by the ATA, the largest martial arts organization in the US with over 1000 locations.

4. Make sure the school you choose focuses on the development of the individual not just competition and winning trophies. Now there is nothing wrong with competition. In fact we have two World Champions here on our staff at Leadership Martial Arts, but your goals come first whether that is developing confidence, discipline, fitness, self defense or even job performance on the battlefield. We are here to help you achieve your goals of success. Thank you for visiting the LMA website and we look forward to having you in class soon!
