My name is TJ Miller, one of the owners and head instructor. Thank you for considering the Ludus Academy of Martial Arts in Mount Holly, NJ. Welcome to our website. I have been teaching Jeet Kune Do Concepts and Mixed Martial Arts in some capacity since two of my friends and I started a training group at Rutgers University. Martial arts has been a vital part of my life and has helped me in every area; the spiritual, physical and emotional. It is my goal to develop a community here that can help you be the best person that you can be.
People train in the martial arts for many reasons. Whether you want to be able to defend yourself, be more confident as a person or tone your body and get in shape, this is the place for you. If you want your kids to have more focus, become bullyproof, get a digital detox or learn healthy habits that will improve the quality of their lives, this is the place for you. I have seen martial arts training do all this and more.
We incorporate a blend of martial arts based on the philosophy of Bruce Lee, which he called Jeet Kune Do. The idea is to study whatever you can and take what is useful for you. I want you to develop the style of martial art that works for you. What works for your body type is going to be different than what works for me. We will teach you a variety of techniques from Thai Boxing, Western Boxing, Wing Chun, Filipino Martial Arts, Jiu Jitsu, and more. We will do drills in all ranges of fighting: kicking, punching, trapping and grappling so you can survive in any situation. We also incorporate weapons training from the Filipino Martial Arts.
All of this is done in a friendly environment in a progression from easy to more advanced that takes the intimidation out of learning. Our drills will make you better at these skills in a relatively fast pace. Come give it a try. A year from now you may wish you started a year ago, or you could be on your way to learning skills that will make you healthier and may save your life someday.
