Many people perceive martial arts as something you must begin as a child, but this couldn't be further from the truth. Our adult students, many of whom start training with no previous experience, find martial arts gives them not only a spectacular workout, but a way to calm their minds and release pent up stress.
Everyone at AMMA begins their journey in the same way; as a white belt. Adults who train with us find classes filled with supportive instructors and peers, who work together to create an upbeat, intense training environment. As their endurance and knowledge of technique improve, we often see a transformation; from timid kiais (yells) and stuttered movements, to strong, powerful voices and enough confidence to be models for lower ranks. As students progress, each new belt achieved is met with the same level of excitement, whether you're going for your yellow belt or you're fighting for your black. We are committed to creating an environment in which every student can reach beyond their expectations, no matter their age or skill level when they begin.
