Martial arts has so many wonderful benefits for children. It teaches them how to focus with uncanny attention. It teaches them respect and diplomacy for peaceful, caring relationships. And of course, it teaches them self-defense to keep them safe & sound.

About GMA Martial Arts of Glen Cove

My name is Hender Alvarado, head instructor of our martial arts school here in Glen Cove. For some time now, we've dedicated our lives to bringing the physical - and spiritual - benefits of martial arts to our community.

Through classes geared for men and women of all ages, shapes and sizes, our school itself has become a community of learning and growth. We'd love nothing more than for you to become a part of it. That way you too can enrich your life, learn self-defense, and get in great shape too.

Together, these three elements lead to a happier, healthier life

After all, for thousands of years, martial arts has been a tool for inner-growth and development. The hard work and patience required to perfect each moves builds discipline, focus and determination. The desire to advance through the ranks develops goal setting and ambition. The rush of passing tests, and seeing how far you've come builds confidence and pride. And the increased energy that comes with getting in good physical shape gives you a boost to bring even more fulfilling activities into your life.

But it doesn't stop there. You also learn self-defense to keep yourself and your loved ones safe and sound. And while you may never have to use these skills in a real-life situation - just knowing that you CAN protect yourself will give you peace of mind. In fact, the confidence you'll exude is enough to diffuse most situations before they ever arise. After all, attackers like to focus in on weak individuals. When you emit strength, confidence and pride - it's enough to keep most of them at bay.

See you soon,
Hender Alvarado
