Kids Programs

AMA’s Premier Martial Arts Kids Program is not just another after-school activity. Basketball, soccer and baseball are all great activities for children, but Premier Martial Arts is personal development through a physical discipline. Our exciting, yet disciplined, classes focus a child’s attention, thus improving his or her ability to learn. Learning builds a sense of accomplishment. With each new accomplishment a student’s self-confidence grows and confidence is the first step in the empowerment of an individuals physical and mental abilities.


Once we begin to develop a students self confidence we are then able to instill the values of respect, courtesy, honestly, perseverance and integrity that are the foundation of martial arts dating back thousands of years.


Furthermore, your child will develop perseverance, which is a non-quitting spirit to overcome life’s obstacles. Instilling a non-quitting spirit helps a child over come challenges to succeed in the face of adversity and to be a goal setter and a goal getter.


These combined physical and character foundations that Premier Martial Arts develop helps children excel in their academic school studies, sports and social endeavors. It ensures that they will have the confidence in themselves and the character to make the right decisions when confronted with negative peer pressure. They will be leaders not followers.

Fast food, video games, and too much TV, combined with a decrease in exercise, have put today children in an obesity epidemic! Currently 1 in every 3 children are considered over weight by the American Obesity Association and that figure is expect to grow to 1 out of every 2 children within the next few years.

At Premier Martial Arts we teach children to Fight to be Fit! We develop healthy children with healthy minds so they have the energy and fitness to be leaders and success at life’s challenges.



Martial Arts is not a team sport, the only person that you are competing with is “Yourself”. Students come to us from age four to sixty four. Some students are in shape, while others are over weight. Some come for self defense, fitness and others for fun. Each person is treated equally, and is trained to the best of their own ability and potential. A student is never compared to anyone else. At Premier Martial Arts our instructors are there to guide, instruct, and motivate you to be the best that you can be.



Physical and Mental Empowerment for your child is only one decision away! They don’t have to be in shape and there is no prior experience necessary for your child to experience the excitement and challenge of Premier Martial Arts, we invite you to take advantage of our special introductory offers.
