Who We Are

About USA Masters Academy Canandaigua in Canandaigua, NY

David Tuttle

Owner and Chief Instructor at USA Masters Academy Canandaigua in Canandaigua, 5th Degree Black Belt

Our Objective is to not only teach you self-defense, but to help you in all aspects of your life. Our classes build focus, inner and outer strength, and determination in people of all ages.

We teach traditional martial arts, but with a modern "twist." Our focus is on overall wellness, defensive training, personal development skills, and life philosophy – all of which help to ensure that you reach your full potential and enjoy the greatest possible success in life.

KWC Martial Arts is committed to providing you with the highest quality training available in a safe and positive learning environment. We strive to make it interesting, fun and educational for the whole family!

We value family and that’s the kind of energy you’ll see and feel here. The instructors and students are all super friendly and supportive so you don’t have to worry about whether or not you’ll fit in. We already know you will… even if you’re a total beginner.

In fact, we welcome beginners with open arms. We were all once in your shoes and understand if you might be a bit nervous about taking your first class. That’s normal and taking that first step is probably the hardest.

But you have to start with that first step to find out just how AMAZING it is and how much it will change your life for the better! No matter what your current fitness level is, we can help you reach your goals and unleash your full potential at your pace.

That’s why we have such a wide variety of classes. While your kids are learning some really cool techniques in martial arts, mom can de-stress in a Tai Chi class or learn self-defense with Taekwondo and dad can shed some weight and get fit in a Progressive Combat class. Your goals are our goals and no matter what, we're here to support you every step of the way.

We strive to make sure that our school is second to none so that you get the most out of EVERY class no matter what age you are as you…

  • Develop inner qualities that help you shine - at home, school, work… everywhere
  • Gain tremendous focus and self-esteem
  • Get in the best shape of your life and have more energy
  • Build a strong core and lean muscle
  • Learn goal setting and follow through skills
  • Make new fit friends that cheer you on

When you learn the forms of martial arts we teach and apply the philosophy to your life, you’ll learn how to become more mentally and physically strong and disciplined. Martial arts is all about self-control – both on and off the mat. Having those good qualities at a young age will prepare your child for real life challenges. 

We don't teach your kids how to fight; we teach them how to defend themselves in a safe, positive and healthy way. They will learn how to stand-up for themselves, become bully-proof and CONFIDENT in any situation, good or bad.

Same thing for ADULTS. You’ll gain tremendous courage and confidence and won’t hesitate for a moment to protect yourself and family, if necessary. That sense of empowerment will carry over into other parts of your life too, as you expand your horizons in ways you only dreamt of before.

Have you checked out the crazy low WEB SPECIAL going on right now? It’s a steal of a deal. Classes fill up fast because it’s such a great deal so reserve your spot today!

So…are you ready to join our FUN and INSPIRING martial arts family? Let’s do this together and make your fitness goals and dreams come true – one awesome kick, punch and black belt at a time.
