Within all of us there is a battle between two dragons. One thrives on negativity, while the other fights back with positivity. The victor will ultimately be the one that is fed the most. Our attitudes and the people we surround ourselves with become that which feed the dragons. At the Academy of Martial Arts, we believe foremost in the importance of community and the improvement of self. Our goal is to create the perfect place for our members to spark a positive change within themselves and begin enjoying a more enriched way of life.We are a united community of five individual locations that focus on both the physical and mental aspects of Martial Arts. Our teachings promote positive change in one’s way of life by tying our philosophy of Martial Arts to the development of the overall wellness of body and mind. For two decades, our community has grown to include over 20,000 individuals who have learned to overcome their most difficult opponent: themselves.Our teachings are provided through a number of disciplines, including Karate, Kobudo, Ju Jutsu, Tai Chi, Japanese Sword, and Pilates. We also offer special programs, such as our Executive Martial Arts program – structured to meet the specific needs of a mature student, and B.R.A.V.E. (Bully Resistance Anti-Violence Education), a program geared to providing young students with the necessary skills to help avoid situations before they escalate to a physical confrontation.
Since 1988 The Academy of Martial Arts was founded in 1988 in a small training area. Now, over 25 years later, we have expanded to several locations in Brampton, Mississauga, Milton, Oakville and even into the United States.
Since 1988 All AMAs are full time schools run by professionals with a minimum of 10 years training experience.
In addition to workshops and seminars, the AMA's hold two training weekend camps in both Summer and Winter. These camps immerse the students into a Martial Arts World where their training and information goes to another level. These camps are offered to adults at all levels of training.

KARATE makes everything better
Karate makes everything better. It has taught Logan responsibility and time management. He has learned how to focus his energy and attention, which has made a big difference in his behavior at home and at school. Having something that is "his" has meant a lot.
Jessica Forler Andrews
Karate makes everything better. For my children and I, it has made us a stronger and healthier family. We apply all that we have learned in classes to our lives: the importance of integrity, perseverance, respect and dedication. Karate had made us better people and therefore everything is better for it!
Karate makes everything better for our family by opening a window into a world of opportunity and growth. Although, there are walls that surround the training centers/ Dojo, the philosophy and ideology is not left at the gate. Through struggle and confusion comes triumph and learning.
