Mission Martial Arts Academy is the offspring of Pasquale(Pat) and Brian Natoli, brothers raised in Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn, and both students of the Martial Arts. Although Pat(Head Instructor) began his teaching at Fordham Universities Lincoln Center Campus, his Tae Kwon Do education began in Brooklyn in around 1989. Brian's study of Tae Kwon Do began around the same time, however, Brian found his love of training many years later in the form of MMA and Submission Grappling. After accumulating 11 years of teaching experience in both Manhattan and Brooklyn, and observing a need for exceptional instruction in the very neighborhood where their experience first began, 'The Mission'(as Headmaster Michal T. Dealy like to say) was born.
