I would like to tell a little story about how I found out about this Dojo. Few years ago my family and I came to US looking for a better life. Back then my son was 8 years old and he was very disappointed and sad because he had to leave his school and friends at our country, so that feeling turned into anger and he started to get into fights at school and his grades dropped all the way down. I basically had to attend meetings with the school principal almost every week, he would get suspended and almost kicked out of school.
At this time I didn't know what to do, until I saw a commercial about Anta's Fitness and Self Defense with great programs for kids, and the fact that Martial Arts would help my son to find self control and discipline while having fun and getting healthier by doing exercise.
Long story short, I set up an appointment for a Free demo class with Mr. Anta, my kid loved it and immediately ask me to enroll him. Few months later his grades got better, he doesn't get in trouble at school, made new friends, and now he is a happy kid.
I really thank Mr. Anta and the staff at Anta's Fitness and Self Defense for being so dedicated and professional.

I truly believe that children have better chances not only to succeed in life but also to be happy when they are well rounded. Exercise is not about sweeting, it needs technique and a close guidance from Coaches.\r

As a martial arts instructor and school owner, I highly recommend Master Anta / Anta's Fitness & Self-Defense in Doral. While there are many schools out there, few are equipped to deliver on what they preach. Being one of the longest

this guy is a fraud. all flash, no substance. mcdojo at its worse. Tim Robbins with a kung fu uniform. I bet he attends Joel Olsteens seminars. By the way I've known this guy for 30 years. Self promoter like 95 percent of martial arts teachers. Just look at the pictures posted on his sight.

Anta's Combat Kung Fu class is the best reality based street defense program around. I've been training with Mr. Anta for 5 months and have learned to defend against knife, gun and hand to hand combat. This class is not for kids but for adults that want to survive a street encounter. Anta is a former Marine Corps Sergeant and former prison guard. He holds the rank of Master in Hung Gar and is certified as an instructor in the Israeli art of Haganah and SABER knife fighting. This is not a tournament or martial arts sports class. This is a reality based street defense class. Anta has traveled throughout the USA teaching self defense. I highly recommend this class to law enforcement officers, military and law bidding citizens that want to feel empowered.

Pros: Great self defense and fitness classes

Cons: none unless you want an easy and quick black belt

Thank you City Search for listing Anta's Kung Fu Fitness Summer Camp. I enrolled my daughter for one week of camp. Today she asked me to enroll her for the remaining 7 weeks. What a change in my daughter in only one week. She says that she is now motivated to become a black belt and get in the best shape of her life. not bad for a girl that cried when we took her to camp the first day. The camp is super fun and has a friendly helpful staff.

What a great class! I've trained in numerous big gyms in the area that had Pilates classes, yet none gave me the results that i got at Anta's Pilates. Elena is the most knowledgeable Pilates instructor in Miami. She genuinely cares about every client and seeing their results. I am now fit and trim and classes are so much fun.

I was searching for a certified Pilates program in West Miami Dade for a while. I finally found one and I'm so glad I did. I feel great, the pain in my back is gone and my waist line is smaller. Elena is an awesome and expierenced certified Pilates mat and Pilates apparatus instructor. She's been teaching Pilates way before it became main stream. I've taken her Pilates mat, Pilates MVe Chair and private equipment classes. I highly recommend all her classes. She truly cares for her students and is knowledgeble, kind and considerate.

II would like to thank the Anta family for the great job that they are doing in the Doral community changing lives for over 10 years. I wish that I would have know of this school when my child was 3. Yet, I'm glad that I found them after some negative experience at another martial arts school.

Anta's Fitness and Self Defense is a true martial arts child development center. Sure there are many good kung fu, karate and Tae Kwon Do schools in South Florida, yet Anta's Kung Fu is not your an ordinary kicking school. A child gets a true martial arts education there. They teach children respect, how to succeed in life, a never give up attitude, how to achieve goals, how to defeat the bully in a non-violent way, Chinese culture, stranger danger and reality based self defense using Anta's background as a law enforcement officer, military background and diverse martial arts/fitness experience and through the Zig Zigglers "I-Can" program, Dr. Terrence Webster Doyle's Bully Busters program.

I am extremely happy with the change in my son's behavior, grades and his weight loss. He loves to come to his kung fu class and is dressed and ready way before classes start. I highly recommend this martial arts fitness center. I challenge anyone looking for a martial arts school to try out other programs and then come by Anta's. There is a difference!

To start, I would like to say the there are several other Martial Arts Schools in the Doral, FL area. There are two very good Karate Schools (Goju-Ryu and Shito-Ryu stiles) and at least one very good TaeKwon-Do school. I am surprised with some of the opinions expressed here regarding other schools in the area without any factual basis. How can anyone say that this or that school is the best or the worst without an in depth understanding of the style and its traditions, the methods and goals of the style taught by each school? All styles of Martial Arts, when properly taught, have great value for anyone willing to learn it. Be it to increase self-esteem, learn self-defense, learn discipline, etc. Another very important point to consider is that since we are far removed from the places of origin of these martial arts (Japan, China, Korea, etc) one of the most critical factors in determining how "good" a martial style is has a lot to do with how good the Shifu, Sensei, or Master teaching the stile is. Without going into more details, we should keep an open mind regarding all the Martial Arts styles/school by respecting each style and the people responsible for teaching it. We are all different people and as such we feel more/less comfortable practicing different stiles of Martial Arts. They are all beneficial to its practitioners as long they are properly taught.

The best program in Doral to teach children life skills and self defense. i had to take my son out of another karate school in Doral because the instructor made fun of my child and called him names. He talked down to the children and even the parants. He said that he was a world and national karate champion in his country and had been teaching karate for a long time and had to break my son. Well, thank God for Anta's Kung Fu. My son is motivated and loves coming to class. Master Anta is kind and teaches kids to achieve goals and never give up. Anta is an example of a fit martial arts instructor and leads by example. My son has become assertive, is moe focus, has learn to defeat bullies in a peaceful manner and is getting better grades. He now wants to achieve the rank of Black Belt and one day become a master just like Mr. Anta. I highly recommend Anta's Fitness and Self Defense to all my friends and relatives.

I highly recommend Anta's Fitness and Self Defense for anyone child or adult that want to get in the best shape of their lives or defend themselves. They truly belive their motto "Live Fit, Live fearless." The staff is freindly and helpful. The Anta's are always available to speak to students and give possitive advice. This is one of the most successfull and well recognized martial arts schools in South Florida established over 10 years ago.

I love this school. Master Anta teaches age appropriate kung fu classes. He is a 3 time Martial Arts Hall of Fame inductee. I take his adult class. We are lucky to have him here in Miami since he travels across the USA giving self defense seminars. What I like the best is open mindedness and the diversity of styles he teaches. He is a Hung Gar Kung Fu Master, certified Haganah Israeli Self Defense instructor, Serrada Escrima apprentice instructor, fitness instructor and has crossed trained in kickboxing and grappling. It is hard to find a martial arts school reality based street defense yet I found one. His biggest attribute is how well he treats his students and the mutual respect in the school. I highly recommend his classes.

I have had my kids in numerous martial arts schools and had them take introductory classes in others. Some had good instructors some bad, some had good self defense some no self defense. Some taught values and some were more like the Cobra Kai of the Karate Kid. Anta's is by far the best school in the area. I'm so glad that I found them. Anta's Fitness and Self Defense is one of the most successful and largest schools in Miami. Yet, Mr. Anta a Kung Fu Master, fitness instructor that has been inducted in 3 martial arts hall of fame and travels the nation teaching crime awareness and reality based street defense takes the time to council and motivate each child.

They are a kung fu/mixed martial arts school with reality based street defense. They teach a Bully Busters program, child safety, weapons, grappling, mixed martial arts sparring in a safe enviorement and true American values. My children are currently in their school and have not had to purchase any books. The school gives out FREE Kono (kids martial arts) magazines to all students. I have a feeling that the negative comments I'm reading are by the jealous smaller schools in the area. I strongly recommend this school.

Ever since i joined 'Anta's Fitness and Self diffence', i have noticed that not only my attitude towards people around me had changed for the better, but my self-esteem and spirit both have had a great lift up! If you are someone who's looking for incredible fitghting tactics, amazing coordination and discipline in life, and make numerous new friends, this is defenectly the best place to start a new yourney in your own life. I defenctly started my new journey of becoming a full black belt a while ago, and let me tell you..it has been quite a challenge for me; but then again, all great things in life are not easy to achive, because if they were, then we'd be unprofecionals. However i am proud to say that i have defenectly worked with a profeccional that has a great sence of humor, great leadership, and amazing goals in life; nobody else but Mr. Anta himself. "thank you master Anta for teaching me all the self defence techniques i know today, for great new experiences with other people, and setting new goals in my life that i will achive no matter what! I defenectly started a new yourney in the correct place! =)

I attended Pilates classes at Anta's for like 6 months...They teach 100 things at the place and we would always have to wait for little kids to get off the mat..The classes are really AWESOME and Elena is a great teacher... they are UNDERPRICED at like 5 bucks a class...I left because they're a little too family oriented for me and I didn't like that they had prayers at the end of exercises. There is a place for everything... They integrate their religion into their business and that's fine, but I didn't like it.

** Some of the reviews here I'm sure are written by the school's instructors. Do take with a grain of salt.

Anta's is the BEST all around fitness school I have seen in my travels the last 13 years. My son takes Kung Fu and has come out of his shell. Mr Anta and his staff "bent over backwards" to help out my son to become the best he could be. He respects his instructors and really wants to learn more. I just hope I can get him in a comparable school when we move away. They have also helped me to get into better physical condition in which I intend to continue. When I signed up my child and myself, I was told everything that was needed for class and promotions. I was also told that I could either by the equipment from the school or buy it elsewhere. There has never been any pressure to purchase anything. I know when my son advances in his belts, there will be more requirements to complete. There are NO surprises with Anta's. What you see is what you get. My advise to everyone is: Visit Anta's and check it out. If you like it join. If you do not like it...go somewhere else...No love lossed...No hard feelings...Just go. Again, ANTA's is the BEST!

I was pressured into buying books for my child that could only be bought through him in order for my child to advance. The same was true of uniforms and very expensive gear (for sparring) that he barely used and he attended Mr. Anta's class for three years.

Overall, Mr. Anta was more interested in recruiting new children for his classes and selling the books than in teaching my child. After three years, I can honestly say that he did not learn anything valuable and did not retain any self defense skills.

Bottom Line: Don't waste your time or your money.

I have been training at this school for almost a year and half and I can honestly say I am very satisfied. The people are very friendly and helpful in assisting first timers and regular attendees. The instructors are very courteous and cater to the student's needs regardless of faith, gender, etc. The school offers many different classes for those interested in pilates, aikido, ju jitsu, fitness and of course, Kung fu.
The Kung Fu courses are reality based, and very intensive. I took martial arts prior to coming to this school and I am definitely in better shape since joining. Plus I feel better prepared to defend myself should a situation arise.

Julio Anta has been named Florida Martial Arts Instructor of the Year as well as National Kung Fu Instructor of the Year, very prestigious awards. He is VERY GOOD at what he does. This is a serious martial arts school that offers a variety of approaches to self defense, from traditional Shaolin and H'ung Gar kung fu to Aikido to Israeli Haganah. For being a serious martial arts school, it's a relief that no one is trying to push any mystical eastern philosophy or anything else down your throat. It's just pure functional training from great down-to-earth people who know what they're doing.

This is a serious martial arts school that offers a variety of approaches to self defense, from traditional Shaolin and H'ung Gar kung fu to Aikido to Israeli Haganah. For being a serious martial arts school, it's a relief that no one is trying to push any mystical eastern philosophy or anything else down your throat. It's just pure functional training from great down-to-earth people who know what they're doing.

Pros: The Pros are the people running the place

Cons: The Cons are sitting in prison where Julio Anta worked as a Corrections Officer

To sell God for money and popularity is a shame. I have known plenty of individuals who pulled their own children away from this school due to this. Before you invest your time and money, please do your research!!!!!

Hung Gar kung fu is a serious martial art. No doubt you will learn how to defend yourself, in that process you will learn to hurt people. Learning how to inflict pain on another human being is not important, because if you go to Anta's Fitness and Self Defense it is guaranteed you will learn techniques in which you can incapacitate and restrain others. Adults learn even more dangerous techniques and go through harder training.
Children who attend the school learn the simple defense techniques that are effective. What is truly important is the discipline that is learned. Without discipline a child is only learning how to cause trouble. Mr. Antas bully busters program teaches non violent resolutions to arguments. This program will empower children in the Art of Fighting without Fighting or how to defeat the bully peacefully.
All in all dont even question if Mr. Antas kung fu system is for real, this is a reality-based martial art. When you walk out of the school, you walk out with the confidence that no one can defeat you.

Pros: Children who are disciplined and focused will attain strength and a focused mind.

Cons: Children who are not disciplined and not focused will gain discipline and focus from all the push ups they'll have to do (strong arms guaranteed)
