All American Martial Arts Academy has played a crucial role in allowing my wife with whom is visually disabled and suffering from M.S. To participate in an activity that not only allows her to be more active and healthy but maybe more importantly has given skill and confidence to defend herself should the need ever arise. Now my son is receiving the same instruction which is giving him the same confidence at school allowing him the opportunity to focus more of his attention on his schoolwork.

“Mixed Martial Arts is Dangerous!!”

“Mixed Martial Arts is Dangerous!!”

“Mixed Martial Arts is Dangerous!!”

You know how many times I have heard that?

Just because you have many many options when you are fighting MMA it does’t make it more dangerous. I would like to say I think that it makes it less dangerous. To the average fighter or person who practices it.

In any other single style sports what ever it is boxing, kickboxing, karate, TKD or anything. When you compete, or train and when you realized that you are over matched in something with your competitor. For the most part due to the rules they are forced to accept the situation you are in.

You have to face your attacker and get served up like the main course meal.

And I know yes “if you have heart!!” you can fight back and win, if you “use your mind” you can surprise your opponent. And yes that is great, but that can be used in MMA too. What I am talking about is options to be able to take your opponent out of their comfort zone. If the rules of your sport close the focus then you can just work on smaller parts of the combat. If your rules of your sport open the focus then you have to be open to work on larger parts of your combat. Less rules gives you more options.

Let me ask you this. If you had a choice to fight multiple attackers on the street but you get to choose. To fight them in an ally way in the city. Or a field in the county. Yes you would pick the field in the country. Why because it would give you options you wouldn’t get in the ally way. Mixed Martial Arts is the same way. It gives you options you wouldn’t have in other sports. If you are losing the stand up you can take it to the ground, if you are losing the ground game you can escape and stand it up.

Keep a open mind

And lets train

I have 3 boys that is in the Jiu Jitsu and MMA class. It has taught them stamina, patience and confidence. They’re very ambitious. The class has taught them order. My children at one time was bullied but not anymore. Now they can stand tall. I personally love the school, they’re family oriented. Also the school gives them the gift of concentration, focus and consistency but primarily it helps them train for becoming better people. Thank you for the wonderful teachers that are at All American Martial Arts Academy.

My Daughter loves All American Martial Arts Academy. The teachers are wonderful and give personal attention to students that you would not find in a larger gym. I feel they care about each student and strive to teach them to the best of the students ability. The gym has a competitive atmosphere, but also teaches to all levels of ability.

My son is a shy person and he wasn’t very social, after two months in All American Martial Arts Academy his confidence grew. He is starting to make some friends and he is showing a friendly personality now. Thank you Mr. James for showing and teaching him self confidence.

My two sons have been coming to All American Martial Arts Academy for 6 months now, they have learn discipline, sportsmanship and how to defend themselves. Mr. James Speight is a great instructor. He not only teaches the kids, but he generally cares for their well-being. My two sons have enjoyed coming, they have gained confidence in their ability to learn the techniques. The instructors and the older students really help the youngsters. My two sons have joined the competition team and they really feel like a part of the team. I couldn’t ask for any better place or people to instruct our kids. Thanks a lot to James Speight for his guidance and encouragement towards the students. I would recommend the facility to anyone.
