Why Choose Steel City Martial Arts?
Choosing the right martial arts school can seem like a daunting decision. With so many schools and styles to choose from, how do you know which school is the right one for you and/or your family? Many schools provide a family-friendly atmosphere, but the integrity of the training is questionable. Other schools offer a “hard-core” training environment with commitment to integrity, but can be unfriendly and intimidating to beginners.
With choices like these, it’s no wonder Steel City Martial Arts (SCMA) has stood out as Pittsburgh’s most highly respected martial arts academy for over a decade. Sensei Achille and his family have created an atmosphere of respect and unwavering commitment to the integrity of the martial arts that is shared by their instructors and students. SCMA combines a respectful, family-friendly attitude, with intense, reality-based training to create a unique training environment that stands out above and beyond that of most “cookie-cutter” dojos in the area.
At SCMA you won’t find “Two Year Black Belt” contracts or children under 16 with black belts. Nor will you find a “tough-guy”, elitist mentality that’s meant to intimidate beginners. What you will find are highly motivated instructors who are recognized experts in their disciplines and who share a passion for helping students achieve their full potential in the martial arts.
Steel City is an academy where the rank you’ve achieved is the rank you’ve earned through dedication and demonstrated skill. If a shortcut to a black belt is what you’re looking for we suggest you order one here and save your time and money. If learning legitimate, effective martial arts in a respectful, intense and fun environment is what you’re after, look no further than Steel City Martial Arts.
