American Martial Arts Academy is the premier karate studio in Orange County, if not the world!! This studio is a family-oriented-owned-operated facility that has over & over established themselves as the best place to be families looking for fitness, fun, and after school programs. We have been students of AMAA-Fullerton for over 7 years, my three kids ages 14 (black belt), 10 (brown belt), and 6 (yellow belt) are all enrolled as well as my wife and myself. This place is fantastic, and very different from your average establishment...Read More

My girls love this place! Both my girls are in the Black Belt Club and Love it. They enjoy every aspect of the program. They look forward to going to practice and seeing there friends. They practice at home together and look forward to competitions. After gaining full custody of my kids my first step was to get them into a great Karate school. I needed them in a positive, fun and caring environment that would help me mold my girls into being awesome individuals. They are doing a great job...Read More

WE LOVE THIS STUDIO!! Our son is 2.5 years old and has been coming here for a few months now & WOW! We’re so pleased with everything our son is learning here! He’s so young but the discipline and positive attitude he is picking up here is definitely noticed in our everyday lives....Read More
American Martial Arts Academy has become our home away from home. Excellent, caring staff who will be dedicated to your children like they are their own. We started last year during the summer and found that their balance of indoor fun activities, local field trips, and weekly park days gives children both variety and structure at the same time. The karate instruction has enabled my children to develop both physically and mentally. Highly recommend AMAA for summer school, aftercare, and karate classes....Read More

The staff here are amazing. They care so much about the kids and wanting them to succeed and have fun. My son (8) and daughter (4) have been coming for over a month and they love it.
Great studio, especially for families. The kid classes are fantastic, and the young ones get a lot more out of it than just karate. It’s life lessons. Integrity. Honesty. Perseverance.  Great, studio, great instructors, great location!
We love this place, teachers are awesome, they care about the kids and they are very focused on teach them well. I have to kids attending classes here and I see a lot of change on them, they are more confident and focused. Also, they take time to teach the kids one by one to ensure that they are on right track. Owers and the personal working there are very friendly. My kids are very happy here.

I have two children in their program and it has been a very positive experience for both of them. It becomes a second family where you end up doing life together.
It’s a wonderful studio and we love it! I’m so happy they care about each and everyone of the kids in and outside of the studio.

Melissa Cavender Freilich reviewed American Martial Arts Academy — 5 star

My son started here at 2.5 and is now 7 and my 4 year old has been attending for almost a year now. The instructors here are great at encouraging the students and keeping their attention, especially at these young ages. I love that there are so many options for class times and you can go whenever it suits your needs. You are not stuck to a specific day and time. They have LOTS of events outside of your lessons, including promotions, tournaments, board breaking, summer camp and parents night out and all are very well run and organized. Looking forward to our many more years at the studio!
