American Martial Art Academy Reviews

Awesome structured class for our three and a half year old. Instructors are patient and would definitely recommend to anyone of any age.

I’ve researched various Bjj academies in the area and after reading some of the reviews decided to check out the American martial arts academy. I met with Jim the owner on his day off and I was not disappointed. The facility is new and very clean, he emphasized safety of the students and promoted an outstanding culture of excellence in the field of Bjj. Erick Raposo “Professor” is one of the best instructors I have met. He knows all the kids names and is genuinely an amazing instructor. I have two daughters that train here and they both love coming here. I highly recommend training here if you want to learn the art of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu!!

AMAA is an awesome, safe, and positive learning and training facility for people of all ages! Our preschooler loves everything about the Tiny Tykes class Lisa and Jim teach at AMAA.

American Martial Art Academy is the best option in this area. The facility is beautiful, and expanding real soon for an even better experience with more options for anyone. Very family friendly, Professor Erick and the assistant instructors provide an environment that is very conducive to kids learning abilities to learn both the techniques and respect for eachother. The adult BJJ class was full of great guys and girls! Couldn't have asked for a better experience that is very welcoming of visitors and military friendly! Thanks again for allowing me to share the mats with you all. Look forward to another drop in, in the future! Aloha!

We love this place! The staff is fantastic and super nice. We couldn’t have picked a better place to put our 5 and 8 year old in classes like these.

I'll be honest when I first signed up for tiny tykes I was a bit nervous as my son was one of the youngest and smallest in the group. I was worried that in such a large group he wouldn't get that much attention but I was completely wrong. Mr. Eric, Mr. Jim and the other instructors were awesome! They were very attentive to each kid that was in the group. They made my son feel so big and strong and he couldn't wait to get home and show his daddy what he learned. I think one of my favorite things to watch this group do was interact and "take down" the older kids at the end of their session. Each kid was always smiling and screaming "2 points!" with excitement. This is an amazing gym with some of the best people teaching. I highly encourage you to check it out and see for yourself just how awesome this place is.

My oldest daughter has attended for a year . It has built her confidence as well as her fitness level. Safety is a priority. She has never been hurt . We enjoy the supportive & family atmosphere at AMAA. You will not be disappointed! Definitely come join this amazing place .

I absolutely loved it; I had so much fun. I'm not fit at all, and at first that made me very self-conscious. But no one made me feel down about myself or unwelcome. The comraderie in the class was awesome. The others cheered me on and encouraged me; they wanted me to have fun and do my best. I was way out of my comfort zone, but I did it! And, my Fitbit said I burned a lot of calories during class. Even though by the end I was exhausted and a little sore, I cannot wait for the next class.

Fantastic academy - can’t recommend AMAA / Soul Fighters enough. I was in the area traveling and hoped to find a place to train BJJ. There are several choices, but after inquiring, Jim reached out to me immediately and I was able to train with them the next day. I tend to be pretty picky when I travel away from my own academy and found they have it all. Their culture is great. They’re very technical and enjoy being competitive, but are keenly focused on safety and helping each other. They have some of the largest mats I’ve ever trained on and the facility is in impeccable shape. They offer great diversity in class schedule, so you have several choices to train around your own schedule. Can’t say enough...will definitely be back to train with them and would definitely make this my home, if I lived there. Go train with them!
