AMA Is a great academy. The instructors are nice and helpful. Promotion is relatively easy if you come enough and care to learn. I even met some new friends here! Would definitely recommend this academy to friends and family.

A couple of years ago my adult daughter and I wanted to take tae kwon do together, so I looked at local businesses. I couldn't have picked a better place. What I like the most is that they are not the get in your face, regimented type of place. They teach not only the Art of Tae Kown Do but how to live by the tenants of Tae Kwon Do: Courtesy, Integrity, Perseverance, Self Control, and Indomitable Spirit. It's heartwarming to watch as they teach the kids and how the kids respond, watching them as they help teach younger kids and even this older adult with respect and fun! The whole academy is a family with an open door. This weekend I test for my black belt and I can't believe it. After that, I'll be adding Hopkido (one of many other types of classes they offer. Thank you AMA!

HKD testing  Thursday Oct 8th

NOTE – There will be All-belt TKD, Stix 4 Kids, HKD, Black Belt and Demo Team classes on Saturday October 10th, and every Saturday unless the Academy is closed for the day.

Special message for all Black Belt TKD Students

When you received your promotion to black belt you achieved one goal – but you have much more to learn – and have a responsibility to help others through assisting with classroom teaching and leading by being an example during training.  In order to be eligible to promote for your next belt you need to be actively training in TKD, (averaging a minimum of 2-3 TKD classes per week). 

Other classes, i.e. HKD, forms and weapons classes do not count

 towards your weekly black belt obligation.  Demo Team members 

may count the weekly demo team practices.

Halloween Open House – Socially Distanced – October 17th 4-6pm

The Academy is pleased to be having our 4th annual Halloween Open House – 2020 style, on October 17th.  All activities will be socially distanced, and outside as weather permits. The party will move inside if weather is problematic. Please wear your costume, and bring a friend and/or family member.  Please consider contributing by dropping off individually packaged treats in the lobby of the Academy Monday Oct 12-Friday Oct 16th so treat bags can be prepared in advance of the party.

Monthly Message – AMA Demo Team 

The AMA created a demo team about 7 years ago, as a way for advanced students to form supportive friendships, develop higher level skills, and share their achievements with others.  Our team is named the STORM Team (special team of role models).  They take that name seriously and have worked to live by a higher standard both in and outside the Academy.  It has evolved into a student lead team – currently leader is 4th Dan Black Belt Mr Mason Inman.  Membership is open to any black belt, and occasionally advanced color belts by invitation.  They have practice every Saturday from12 – 1pm, and prepare routines to share at promotion ceremonies (and online by video recently in the Covid era).

One of our latest and newest features in the app is we now have martial arts themed masks for sale, extra uniforms, apparel, and even some novelty items. Many of these can be ordered from the app and sent right to your front door. It will say Century Direct below when looking at the products.The majority of items will ship right to your door, anything that doesn’t have Century – Direct will be on hand at the Academy or can be special ordered.
