Martial arts studio opening eighth location, at Manasquan shopping center

A New Jersey chain of martial arts studios will open a new location at Wall Towne Center in Manasquan, according to Levin Management Corp., the exclusive leasing and management agent for the property.

Master Park’s Black Belt America is set to open its eighth location in a 1,600-square-foot studio at the center, a grocery-anchored retail property on Route 34, Levin said in a news release.

“Wall Towne Center always has benefited from a high-traffic location and a quality, complementary tenant mix,” leasing representative Kendal Hand-Freda said.

Master Park’s, founded in 1989, caters to students of all ages and has existing locations in Elizabeth, Englishtown, Franklin Lakes, Freehold, Marlboro, Midland Park and Wall Township, Levin said.

“Master Park’s Black Belt America is a well-established regional martial arts studio with an outstanding reputation,” Hand-Freda said. “It will bring an added dimension to the retail experience at the property and drive significant, repeat traffic — an advantage for Wall Towne Center’s entire tenant base.”

A 3,400-square-foot unit is the only retail space still available at Wall Towne Center, which is anchored by a 71,000-square-foot ShopRite.
