Imperatori Family Martial Arts of Atlanta

We will be open for Summer Camps!

Pursuant to the permission given by Governor Kemp on 5/12/2020, Imperatori Martial Arts will be open for all sessions of summer camps beginning on Tuesday, May 26th. Thank you – Joey Imperatori.

All group classes and camps at Imperatori Martial Arts are suspended effective Tuesday, 3/17/2020

All group classes and camps at Imperatori Martial Arts are suspended effective Tuesday, 3/17/2020. We hope to resume classes and camps beginning Wednesday, April 1st. Obviously this may change – we will keep you posted.

Private lessons are still available during this 2 week period. The private lessons will be taught at a safe distance, with all contact being done on the heavy bags that will be disinfected before and after each lesson. These private lessons can be for individual students alone, or with their immediate family members. We hope that this will be an option for our families who want to get out of the house and exercise in a clean, safe environment.

To schedule a lesson, send an email to info@imperatorikarate.com and Joey will promptly send you daytime and evening availability.

I wish everyone the best during this difficult and uncertain time. Thank you for your support of our studio and staff!

Women’s Self Defense Class Wednesdays at Noon

 

We offer Gracie Jiu-jitsu based Self Defense for women, by women.  This class contains the most practical self defense moves for women, taken from Gracie Jiu Jitsu into a course for you.”

Each week we will show you how to survive and escape real-world situations through proven safety and survival strategies. These vital lessons show how women of all sizes, ages, and fitness levels can survive and escape dangerous situations, giving YOU the edge over someone who means you harm.

Based on Gracie Jiu-jitsu, our techniques emphasize leverage and body mechanics over size and strength. You will be empowered as your awareness and physical tools increase.  In addition, you will lose weight and get into great shape.

Classes are on Wednesdays, noon until 1 pm.  But, once you get hooked, and you will, you can always expand into our regular Gracie Jiu-jitsu program, with lots of class choices and a lot of like minded women.
Not sure?… try a class for free and make up your own mind.  Can’t make a class? No worries. We regularly review material to keep you sharp.  No previous experience is needed and athletic clothes encouraged, but not required.
Questions? email GJJinSS@gmail.com .  To enroll or schedule a FREE class, contact TL at 404-252-8200 or email us.  Already in the GJJ program?…this class is included in your regular tuition.   Even if you are “out of shape” it’s never the wrong time to prepare to expect the unexpected.
 
Don’t miss this opportunity to enhance  your street smarts, get in shape and build your confidence!
