“Karate became a major part of not just mine by my entire family. I started training almost 9 years ago and have been struggling with a life long heart condition that held me back on a lot of things. After I signed up for Karate I was scared, but thought I want to be there when my children are older.

I cannot believe what I am capable of now compared to when I started. I have never felt so healthy in my life.

My goal is to grade for my black belt in December, a task I would never imagine as I always had setbacks all my life. Karate has given me a renewed and longer life.

Karate makes everything better!”

– Eileen Wesley Age 53 – Brown Belt

“It is difficult to put into words the impact that AMA has made on my son’s life. When Will was in fourth grade he went through a terrible period of being bullied at school. This experience left him with low self-esteem. It broke my heart to see some of his bright light dim. When he came home one day excited about a karate demonstration that he had seen at school we enthusiastically signed him up at AMA. Will is now an eighth grader and thankfully it is difficult to remember the sad and quiet fourth grader any more. I thank AMA for much of that metamorphosis. AMA has become a second family to our son. I have watched them work with Will and with other students with such great aptitude and caring. They know each student and not only instruct them on karate but encourage each student to be the best them that they can be. Some children, like my son, work on self-esteem other’s may need to work on focus or self control. My son has been able to travel while participating in tournaments, he has enjoyed movie nights and day camps during school breaks and he has stepped on the court of arenas to compete or demonstrate the exemplary skills that he has learned. Will’s grades have improved steadily during his training and he has learned that taking pride and responsibility in all he does is important. I thank AMA for helping my husband and I raise a young man that we are exceeding proud of. I have no doubt that I will watch my son earn his black belt one day. Thank you AMA family!”

– Will Egan’s Mom (Tracie Egan)

“I have been training at AMA for 11 years and the Martial Arts have been and continues to be an integral part of my growth as a person. I will never stop training because it has become a part of who I am. Thank you to AMA and Sensei Hamilton for the opportunity to train at such a great dojo and to become part of a great dojo family!”

– Stephen Schahrer Age 19 – Black Belt

“We love the Academy of Martial Arts dojo! Since my son Dominic started here at the Academy of Martial Arts he has learned so much about self discipline, respecting others and himself.
