Why Join AMA?
If the only tool you have is a hammer, every problem seems like a nail. Most people would define self-defense from the perspective of physicality. Whether you see it as a defensive tool or as a way of staying healthy, it is rare that our initial perspective on Martial Arts is from a mental point of view. But beyond this superficial depiction, AMA believes that traditional Martial Arts develops more than just the physical attributes associated with self-preservation.
More importantly, training will develop a self-defense mindset. Such a mindset is capable of defending us everyday, in every way. So put down the hammer and try a different tool. You might just see things from a different perspective.
