I am grateful to have both Professor Delgado and his wife Thaís impart to my daughters how they can strive towards becoming their best self through Jiu Jitsu. They continuously emphasize respect and inspire my girls to fight hard during class by reminding them that their intensity is what helps their classmates become better. Though they will push your children to expand their capabilities, they are VERY patient and encouraging. Though Professor Delgado leads every class (unless competing), he has a team of exceptional coaches that will also be present to ensure children have the attention they will need to stay focused and the feedback they will need to grow. I find it particularly impressive that they limit the number of students that can enroll in younger classes and maintain a 2 to 1 ratio of students to coaches to ensure they can properly guide development. It is clear they prioritize the needs of their students. Though Professor Delgado’s accomplished career in Jiu Jitsu and Thaís’ background in education are enough to encourage anyone to give this academy a shot, the greater potential my girls realized under their guidance is the reason I believe enrolling in Biloxi’s AAMA may be one of the best things you can do for your kids.

The quality of training is world class! The details are so precise anyone can learn the techniques.. the professionalism is outstanding, great environment for not only the adult but also for the children. I wouldn't hold any place higher of standard... AMAA is truly a jiu jitsu competitor/practitioner/hobbyists gold mine right here at home on the gulf coast.

Professor Leo and Thais are so welcoming! The experience for my son and I has been amazing so far. The environment is very welcoming and everyone at the gym is so friendly. Prof Leo and the other instructors take their time to teach you and help you along. When my son or I are struggling or exhausted, they are always there to pep us up and motivate us. The fundamentals class moves along at a steady pace that really allows you to learn. The prices are also very very reasonable. I would highly recommend the academy to anyone!

I am extremely happy with American Martial Art Academy. My son and I are learning jujitsu together and the family atmosphere here is very inviting. The schedule is perfect because if life gets in the way there are classes you can attend all week. I am very happy we joined. Thank you Professor Leo, Instructor Jim, and the rest of the staff!!
