We are Open!! Well On Friday at 5PM We Are.

We would like to thank all of our Faithfull and Loyal Students, Parents and Clients who have stuck with us during this time. There were many martial arts academies who weren’t able to stop their monthly membership fees during this physical shut down.

We were fortunate to be the only academy we know of, who did pause our membership fees, for our students, in April and continue for five months. We will resume our membership fees on September the 4th for the month of September if you have questions you can call us at 252-413-0066.

Our Close Relationship With ECU

Our Close Relationship With ECU

The All-American Martial Arts Academy has always had a close relationship with ECU. We are located blocks from the East Carolina University campus, right in the heart of Up-Town Greenville NC. A lot of our students who live on campus walk to our classes. And others who drive find our location very convenient. The fighting Pirates are in our blood and always will be.

ECU Pirate Mascot ARRGGHH!!

ECU Pirate Mascot ARRGGHH!!

When East Carolina University was originally formed it was a “Teacher College” and was known as “The Teachers” so originally the pirate mascot was imaged after Edward Teach the infamous Black Beard Pirate from North Carolina. The tie in to Edward Teach and “The Teachers” didn’t catch on, so they changed it later to the “The Pirates”. Over the years the Pirate mascot was changed, from his image and his name, to be more children friendly.

Kind of interesting that the Pirate Nation started out from a unsavory outlaw with a dark image as the one I shared.

How ever the Pirates Mascot was Started, I know when I a traveling around the nation and sometimes around the world, if someone asks me where I am from, I will tell them Greenville North Carolina, if they look puzzled I say Eastern North Carolina, and then maybe I will say ECU Pirates. Then they know.

ARRGGHH!!
