Be a “BLACK BELT for a Day”
Birthday Parties at IMA!

What better way to celebrate your child’s birthday than with an activity that they love? Birthday parties at IMA are sure to be an experience your child will never forget. Our birthday parties are fun, safe and carefully supervised by our certified instructors.

Your child will be promoted to black belt for the day and will lead/help lead the birthday party class with the help of a certified IMA instructor!

Parents, this is the perfect way to introduce children who are shy about trying the martial arts, they often feel more secure in a festive environment with lots of friends. So remember not only are our parties a lot of fun but they will be very educational as well, covering good nutrition, stranger danger and bully prevention.  For your child’s birthday, give them the gift of confidence ! (For ages 4 & up)




Here’s what some families are saying about our Birthday Parties!:

  • “It was the most awesome birthday party. We had kids ages 5-12 (mostly 11-12 year olds). The instructor included everyone effortlessly. All the kids had a blast. My son got to break a board (he didn’t think that he could do it). We liked the instructor so much we are looking into classes. ”
  • “The owners Jeremy and Susan are fantastic! They make you feel right at home and very welcomed. We had a birthday party for my son who was turning 10 and he had 15 friends there….Jeremy made it all so much fun for them….They had a blast! Would definitely recommend them to others….Thanks guys!”
  • “Fantastic!!!!!”
  • “We drove from San Jose to Oakland. It was a bit of a drive for my family and I but it was well worth it. Their services were great. “
