Located in San Luis Obispo, CA, the United States Academy of Martial Arts, has been bringing the challenge and excitement of their martial arts programs to men, women and children of all ages and skill levels.
US-AMA is a unique dojo as we offer two training pathways for students to choose, the Longevity pathway and the Standard pathway.
- The Longevity Pathway is designed for students who want to learn martial arts but cannot afford even the slightest risk of injury associated with sparring and take-downs. This program involves scripted self-defense training, striking targets and devotes more time to training karate forms.
- The Standard pathway explores multiple systems of traditional martial arts and includes combative training, forms, striking targets, as well as stand-up sparring and grappling with other students.
Our program at US-AMA is unique in its approach to teaching. We have adapted and refined styles from around the world such as Karate, Kung-Fu, Aikido, Tae-Kwon-Do, Judo, and Brazilian Jiu-jitsu, developing a solid style that takes the best of each system and is effective and easy to learn at any age, ability or skill level. The blending of the martial arts styles provides US-AMA students with an unlimited resource of effective techniques. Rather than molding the student into one particular style, US-AMA has designed training programs that maximize the abilities and potential of each student.
US-AMA is much more than just self-defense. Students are regularly being reminded how much fun it is to learn through United States Academy of Martial Arts and are experiencing the benefits of these ancient art-forms.
