Martial Arts Institute of the Berkshires encourages growth in the body, mind, and spirit. Our Instructors guide students through conditioning that inspires self-confidence, self-esteem, strength in the body and mind as well honing an individual’s focus drills and meditation.


Family & Community

Working with local schools, we know how important family and community is. We promote our classes as Family Based, encouraging families to practice together - thus tightening the bond between family members. MAIB is also happy to participate in community events, such as the Great Barrington Bike and Fly.


Exploration of Culture

MAIB students are taught self-discipline in part by learning proper Taekwondo/Classroom etiquette that enforces everyday social courtesy, polite and positive behavior that can be seen in every aspect of the student’s life.


Balanced Health

As important as physical strength is, mental and emotional health is just as important - as they are directly connected. MAIB fosters a safe environment for all students to grow and explore as they begin Martial Arts journey.
