Recognized by the Federation of Israeli Martial Arts

Our master instructor and style were the first to be recognized by and allowed membership in FIMA, the Federation of Israeli Martial Arts, in the state of Ohio. Our style is the first non-Israeli style to be allowed membership due to our similarity to Hisardut. Hisardut (translated to Survival), is taught to Israeli Special Forces and considered more advanced and comprehensive than Krav Maga.  

Martial Arts enhances the mind, and improves the entire body. Empowerment, confidence, balance, discipline, self-control, awareness, and coordination - each class improves your abilities in each of these areas. If you'd like to be amazed at what you can do with the human body, would like to learn some quick and easy self-defense moves, or just like being in motion and enjoy learning new things, we'd be happy to meet you in one of our classes. Take a look around our website to get more information about our classes, give us a call, or stop by in person. We look forward to meeting you!

A full bodied diverse egoless program for the entire family

Before the current time of the internet and mass marketing, a student would search for a martial arts master that was special. A master that could teach not only a broad range of self-defense skills to match the students body type and size, but also life lessons. One that would take that student in and make him or her feel like family. That is what you can find today at the Beachwood Academy.


Our style, Tai Shin Doh, is one of the broadest styles available anywhere. Our Master Instructor started in the Martial Arts over 50 years ago, and personally is involved with almost every class. We love what we do, and it shows!


Are you interested in a one day or six to eight week training session at your organization? We have taken our self-defense class on the road and taught it at organizations both large and small. Contact us for more information.
