The head instructor was my instructor and he helped me crawl out of my shell as a fifth grader. I am a college student at the moment and I couldn't be more thankful for my experience at FMAC. I high recommend this school!!!

Mr. Sackett brings award winning karate instruction to the families of Scotch Plains and Fanwood. An excellent instructor of all ages, Mr. Sackett has a great connection esp with children, and molds them into young men and women of character. Having worked with Mr. Sackett since we were both young ourselves, I can personally vouch for his work effort, heart, and teaching ability that every parent should let their child experience.
