The Martial Art from a Galaxy Far, Far Away

Learn to fight like a Jedi and flip like a Ninja in this Star Wars meets American Ninja Warrior training class. Come join us! No experience required.

So wait...you're actually training to be Jedi?

Yes! We combine martial arts, acrobatics, parkour, light saber dueling, self defense, and meditation into an action packed class that'll get your heart pumping while having tons of fun. Our program is based on actual martial arts and teaches skills that you can use to protect yourself or someone else.  That sounds like a Jedi to us!

Get a great workout

Training to be a Jedi is hard work, and you'll feel the burn!  It's a full body workout that incorporates endurance, strength, and agility.

Give up the boring gym membership

Every class is unique, so you'll never get bored. From trampolining, to rock climbing, to light saber dueling, to obstacle courses, you'll always find something new.

Learn Self Defense

We're a real martial art school that teaches Taekwondo, Hapkido, and Daehanmoodo.  You'll learn pieces of each of these to learn how to defend yourself.

Gain Confidence

Seeing yourself try and succeed at something new will build your confidence not only within the dojang, but also outside of it.

Gain Strength

Ropes, rings, rock walls, and light sabers will tone your upper body, while vaulting, trampolining, and flipping will work your lower body.

Gain Flexibility & Balance

Flexibility and balance are important aspects of becoming a ninja - you'll improve these aspects as we duel on balance beams and jump on striding bars!

Who Can Participate? 

We've got classes for adults, children, and anyone in between! Here's our current schedule. Not sure which class is right for you? Stop in or give us a call and we'll be happy to help you out!

What people say

AMA has a superior staff that makes us feel like family. The instructors are exceptional with the children, and my son loves his classes and the other students. He has gained self-confidence as well as learning some very cool martial arts skills in a fun yet structured environment. We had his 6th birthday party at AMA and it was a BLAST! All the guests loved it.

-- Youth Martial Art Parent

My kids go to the after-school program at the Academy of Martial Arts and Personal Development (aka. AMA), and they love the program atmosphere and all the staff. My wife and I have seen how the after-school program had helped them with their confidence as students and as individuals. I highly recommend the after-school program to parents that are looking for a safe and high-quality after-school program for their children. Also having martial arts classes included in the after-school program is a plus. Recently my son also joined the Jedi program of the AMA and has enjoyed it very much. I can honestly say that The Force is Strong in the Academy of Martial Arts and Personal Development! To all the AMA staff thanks for all the help you have provided my children at the after-school program, martial arts classes, and Jedi classes. Thank you all!
