Located in San Luis Obispo, CA, the US Academy of Martial Arts is unique in its approach to teaching martial Arts. We teach martial arts systems from around the world such as Karate, Kung-Fu, Aikido, Tae-Kwon-Do, Judo, and Brazilian Jiu-jitsu, developing a complete style that takes the best of each and is effective and fun to learn at any skill level, ability or age. The blending of the styles provides US-AMA students in San Luis Obispo with a tremendous resource of effective techniques. Rather than molding the student into one particular style, US-AMA has training programs that maximize the abilities and potential of each student.
















Here is the latest of what our students and parents have to say:
