We are the ONLY Manhattan-based facility that is certified to teach Jeet Kune Do (JKD) directly under Bruce Lee’s heritage, as well as under Guro Dan Inosanto in both Filipino Martial Arts and Jeet Kune Do (JKD). Beginning sixteen years ago, AMAA teaches Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Grappling arts under the direct Gracie lineage. AMAA was also one of the first schools in New York City to teach Muay Thai. We have also had the privilege of teaching some of New York’s finest men and women from the NYPD, FBI, FDNY, and U.S. military. Above all, we pride ourselves on the quality of our curriculum, the diversity of our students, as well as the experience and lineage of our instructors.
