Get Fit, Feel Great, and Learn Self Defense Moves That Could Save Your Life.

And Have a TON of Fun Doing It!

First, A Note From Our Instructor:

Hi, my name is Brian McCann, owner of Master McCann's Academy of Martial Arts in Howell , New Jersey. I want to take a moment to welcome you to our website and to say THANK YOU for considering our Martial Arts school. I’ve seen so many different kinds of people come through our doors - from the very overweight to the ultra-shy. We’ve had people start class because they want to be prepared if they need to defend themselves, and even people who start class because they’ve already been victims of a violent attack. The thing that ties all of these people together is that I've seen Martial Arts classes help every single one of them find their inner strength, peace, and confidence.

We've seen people overcome serious personal challenges like losing significant weight, we’ve seen people feel supported by meeting and interacting with other people who share their challenges, and we regularly see people gaining unreal confidence not just in their ability to defend themselves, but in their everyday lives.

So, what I'll do on this page is tell you a little about what our focus is in our classes, and what methods we use to achieve our results. Take a look at what we do, and see if our philosophy on the Martial Arts mat lines up with your goals, and if what we teach would be beneficial in your life.

Again, THANK YOU for considering Martial Arts - for our instructors and students it’s been one of the best things they’ve ever done, and I think it's possible that it could be the same for you.

Work Pressure, Family Needs, Health Concerns, Time Demands...

Sound Familiar?

Self Defense isn't just physical. It's also mental, spiritual and emotional. Living your life the way you want isn't always easy. When we first meet a new student at our school, the signs of daily life in the 21st Century are usually pretty (painfully) obvious:

  • Focus Issues

    Having trouble focusing isn’t just a “kid thing”. The ability to hone in on and complete a task is vital for our work success, family success, and life success. In our Martial Arts classes, you’ll gain laser sharp focus that you’ll take everywhere you go. 

  • Lack of Confidence

    As we say in our classes, Confidence is Cultivated. That means that if you want that next promotion at work, or the respect of people you admire – or even to just be able to hold your head up in your daily life, you’re going to have to work for it. And we can show you how.  

  • Lack of Social Interaction

    We’re humans – we’re not supposed to be shut up in a cubicle all day, only to come home and turn on the TV (then go to bed and repeat the cycle again and again). The kinds of things you can learn – the knowledge you can gain from interacting with your peers in a supportive environment is amazing. 

  • Lack of Perseverance

    We’re all guilty of quitting when things start to get challenging. But in our classes, you’ll be motivated by instructors who know exactly what you need. They’ll drive you to reach deep within yourself and help you create an unwavering perseverance that will benefit you for the rest of your life. 

  • Lack of Motivation

    You can’t just sign up at a big box gym and expect to achieve the kinds of results you truly want. You could hire a personal trainer for $100’s/hr, or you could join a class where you’re driven by not just your own motivation, but by your friends, instructors, and the culture of success that we foster in our school.

  • Silently Dying

    “Health” isn’t just a new buzzword. Our population is slowly dying of heart disease, chronic illnesses and worse. Don’t expect to beat the statistics unless you take action. Even if you don’t join our classes, try something! But if you do join, you’ll know that you’re on a personal path that you, your spouse, your kids, and everyone around you can be proud of. 


But There's Hope!

We've specifically designed our classes to help you break through to new levels of health and happiness. You'll be able to work through your daily challenges with strength, focus, and poise (even if you're never "attacked").

Finally Achieve the Results You've Always Wanted

Even If You Haven't Exercised In Years (or Ever!)

  • Physical Strength

    A Healthy body is a Strong body. So many people just want to “lose weight”, but they don’t realize that that requires building muscle. More muscle means you’ll burn more calories (even when resting), be more mobile, and look better.

  • The Ability to Defend Yourself Mentally, Emotionally AND Physically

    If you ever need to, you will absolutely be able to defend yourself physically. The Martial Arts moves you’ll learn in class will arm you with a sense of security that our students get to carry with them everywhere they go. We sincerely hope you never have to use it; but if you do, you’ll be ready.

  • Soaring Self Esteem

    One of the most important things you’ll earn in our classes is a tremendously positive sense of self. This isn’t just kid stuff. Low Self Esteem, if we’re being honest, hurts just as much, or maybe even more, as adults. You’ll be able to fend off the emotional onslaught of judgment from others, set appropriate boundaries in your work and personal life, and eventually, through conquering our Martial Arts class, know that you’ve conquered yourself. 

  • Group Support

    The value of working through your challenges with a group of peers who are all focused on the same goals cannot be overstated. You WILL be held accountable, and this time you WILL achieve your goals. We (the instructors and other students) won’t let you shy away form the things you want to accomplish; we’ll be there every step of the way.

Class Reviews from Real Students

We Think It's Great, But What About Our Regular Members?

Master Brian and all the instructors at this Academy are amazing. My teen daughter has learned so much. She has such a great feeling of accomplishment and her confidence has increased greatly. The sense of comradery among all students in every level is amazing. The instructors foster a team unity and lead by example. I am extremely happy with what my daughter has and is learning. I am glad she will have this self defense foundation before she goes off to college. The level of professionalism balanced with the sence of family makes this Academy nothing short of stellar.

Patience Nolan

Whether you are seeking martial arts for your child or yourself, its the ONLY dojo I would recommend. Master McCann and his staff are awesome, the class scheduling is great, and I can't think of a single negative thing about McCann's Academy.

Anne Marie Wall

I wholeheartedly recommend Master Brian McCann and The Self Defense Academy. Master McCann teaches each class personally and spends equal time helping beginners and advanced students alike. The school has a friendly/family feel with students who train hard but support each other. Hapkido is truly a well rounded martial art that provides me with all the tools necessary to defend myself in any situation. If you are in Central NJ & are looking for a good school to train in, I encourage you to come in and try the 30 day trial program.

Frequently Asked Questions

Will I get hit/get hurt?
Show +

No.....unless you want to! Every student is on their own journey. We have young, strong students who love to take their training way past what most people do. But for the vast majority of our students (95%+), getting hurt isn't an option (plus it's not much fun). In our classes, safety is paramount. There's no more of a chance of you getting hurt here than there is at a gym or jogging down your neighborhood street.

How often do I need to come to class and when are your classes?
Show +

Our programs fit into almost any schedule (remember, all of the other students who already take classes with us are super busy too!). We have students who are successful in our program at only one day a week, and we have students who are so addicted to love class that they're here everyday.

You don't have to attend everyday, but if you enter your email we'll send you to the next page where we will show you our schedule and trial offer, and you can decide for yourself. If you have questions about the schedule, there's a contact for you on that page to ask questions.

I haven't been active in years. Do I need to do anything before enrolling?
Show +

No. Although we definitely suggest maintaining an active lifestyle, if you haven't exercised in years, our beginner classes are perfect for you. We specifically focus that class on helping students not only learn the basic foundations of martial arts, but on building basic physical endurance, strength and flexibility. Before you know it, you'll be looking and feeling fantastic.

Can I try it before I sign up?
Show +

We always start with a Trial Program. It's really important not only for you to be able to make sure our program will be beneficial, but also for us to be sure we can appropriately meet your goals.

Because this is introductory time is so important, and because it's mandatory for all new students, spaces in our trial program are often very limited. So if you want a space, please be sure to sign up for one! If there are no spaces, we'll put you on the waiting list.

Our Classes Blend Fitness with Self Defense

And That's Important

The reality is that you can't really separate the two. If you want to be able to defend yourself (and you do!), then you need to be in good shape. Now, you do NOT have to be in good shape to start! That's what we do - help normal people like you improve themselves everyday.

A "Group Sport"

With An Individual Focus

You'll get to interact and work with other people who share your same goals and challenges, but you won't be compared to them. This isn't high school gym class - there's no "pecking order". It's just a group of people working hard to achieve the things they never thought they were capable of. And you belong with them.
