new jersey kids martial arts classAMA’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 individual’s physical and mental abilities.

“My 8 year old son took Tae Kwon Do classes for 2 years with limited results. The instructors at the other schools let the kids run wild, with no sense of order or discipline. Every month there was a belt test, and every kid was promoted even if they did not know the katas. My husband eventually pulled my son from Tae Kwon Do and enrolled him at AMA Fight Club. We were amazed at the level of training and discipline that was provided to our child. For the first time in two years, our child was learning practical self defense techniques both standing, and on the ground. You will not find a school like this anywhere in NJ. Highly recommended!!”

– Valoree Racanelli

childrens martial arts class Once we begin to develop a student’s 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.

“We are very happy to be part of the AMA family. Kudos to you for running such a family- oriented establishment. You guys rock!”

community outreach martial artsAt AMA it is not just about punching & kicking. We instill Character Development & Community Outreach! 8 Year Old AMA student Giovanni Rivera in conjunction with his wonderful parents & AMA collected supplies for the Hurricane Sandy victims at AMA. Giovanni requested donations in lieu of Birthday Gifts…now that is an amazing young man & future leader in our community!!!

character developmentThese 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”. Some students are arrive in shape, while others may be overweight. Some come for self defense, fitness and others for fun. Each child is treated equally, and is trained to the best of their own ability and potential. Students in the AMA Kids Program are never compared to anyone else. Our instructors are there to guide, instruct, and motivate your child to be the best that they 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.
