AMAA Instructors

The Greatest Gift A Teacher Can Receive Is The Ability To Pass On The Arts

Sifu Dan Anderson has handpicked his own teaching staff with the greatest attention to detail for both the arts we represent and the diverse community we serve.

Our staff consists of a team of professional martial artists dedicated to providing quality student service. Many of our instructors hold titles and awards from national and international competitions. More importantly, they are passionate about teaching and dedicated to the success of each individual student. Many of our instructors have been with the AMAA family since they began training here almost two decades ago. Others have come to us after reaching their own accomplishments in the arts they teach.

We understand the critical role our instructors play in your personal development, as well as your child’s development. For that reason, we hire only the most professional and highly qualified instructors available.
