“The staff and facilities at American Martial Art Academy are first rate. My kids started training at the gym when they were 10, and they are now almost 15 years old. They love training and competition, and have grown so much in the sport. It has taught them to be disciplined, set goals and work hard to achieve those goals. The environment at the gym is like an extension of our family. There have been so many people, both staff and students, that have encouraged the boys and led by example on how to be outstanding citizens, and team players. Absolutely 5 plus star rating! – D.
