    The Academy of Martial Arts answered our questions

    Who are you as an organization?

    Since first opening our doors in 1988, we have grown with our community and currently operate two locations in Brampton’s west end. Teaching both young and mature students, we have seen the life skills of the Martial Arts create confident individuals who continue to contribute to our city.

    • Special needs: Not available
    • LGBTQ+ friendly community

    What do you do differently or uniquely well?

    "Our focus on physical martial arts is self-defense. But it is so much more than that. When students can learn to apply the martial arts mindset to everything else they do, they are able to enhance those areas of their lives. From school to friendships, family life, homework, making their bed, and cleaning their room. We really believe that Karate Makes Everything Better. We teach our students that Karate is a vehicle we can use to help us become the next better version of ourselves. "

    Who are your staff and counsellors?

    "Our staff are all training members with us long before they become staff. Most for many years, even growing up with us attending camps too. They all have many hours of volunteering in Camps, Classes, Seminars, and Birthday Parties. They spend time learning and practicing communicating with students of different ages, as well as parents. "

    What do families need to know about registration?

    "Registration can be done, online, over the phone, or in person.
    We welcome training members, but also kids that don't currently train with us. It's usually a great intro before signing up for our regular classes.

    The Our Kids review of The Academy of Martial Arts

    our take

    Karate makes everything better. This is the mindset of the team at The Academy of Martial Arts (AMA). Applied to all areas of life, martial art skills improve abilities in other sports, social skills, discipline in daily tasks, and so much more. What makes AMA different from other martial arts schools is that the instructors are ultimately invested, with many of them having grown up at The Academy. It feels like a family at AMA, building generation over generation. Group programs are also very individualized, where instructors tailor training based on individual skill, but also individual mood and temperament from day-to-day. Shy children come out of their shells and confidence skyrockets, thanks to the structured program and the encouraging instructors. Kids come home excited and happy to attend again. That’s really saying something, as no parent wants to pay for a program that kids have to be dragged to. AMA has been around for many years, and their involvement doesn’t end with students at their academy—they are very active in the community, volunteering the instructors’ time at schools, charities and city events.

    Darryl (Camper)Whole Family Training

    My whole family has trained here for many years now. We all enjoy the training, the instructors, and the people we train with. It is more than just a "fitness club", it is another family. It is a fantastic place to get fit (both body and mind) and to find lots of like-minded individuals. I have the highest praise ... Read More

    VJ (Camper)Atmosphere

    The atmosphere here is very welcoming and supportive as I'm always around positive influences. I've been training here for two and a half years now and so far, many aspects of my life, both physically and mentally, has improved in and out of the dojo. The instructors here have been helping me strive to be the very best that I can be. Everyday I'm always excited to learn and discover something new in myself and in the martial arts ... Read More

    Highly qualified and experienced faculty. The over-all environment is very amicable. My daughter is learning martial arts here for the last 3 years and we are completely satisfied. Not only the skills, but the confidence she gained over period of time is worth it. Thanks AMA ... Read More

    Karey (Parent)Thank you

    The training itself is second to none, plenty of class choices, extra seminars, opportunities to learn and grow, but AMA has done so much more for my son than teach him karate. My son started at AMA as a very shy and timid child, but, with the constant encouragement and support of the amazing instructors he has grown into a confident young man with the commitment and courage to constantly push himself and step outside his comfort zone. I can’t thank the AMA team enough for helping him see his true potential ... Read More

    AMA dojo is truly great. My family and I have been training there for 10 years. Starting with the types program for 3-4 year old's that participate with a parent, to kids classes, to teen classes to adult classes. And excellent extracurricular programs too that complement karate training ... Read More

    Mara (Parent)wonderful environment in which to raise our children

    Our family has been with the Academy of Martial Arts for just over ten years now. It has been a wonderful environment in which to raise our children. The leadership and commitment of the AMA staff is always strong and positive. Our values and philosophies are shared and nurtured. Our family is part of a community that supports both physical and mental wellness as well as supporting local causes and charities. Martial Arts training does not simply end when we exit the Dojo doors. Instead, it follows us throughout our daily lives. It is evident in our children in the way they conduct themselves, in their academic performance and how they relate to others. It has also given my husband and I the ability to relate to our children on another level. With several locations and lots of class times, fitting training into our busy lives is much easier ...

    Traci Picard (Parent)An Amazing Experience.

    What an amazing experience. From the moment you walk in the door, you are greeted with smiles and friendly faces. Everyone is so nice and helpful and always there to answer any questions you have. From Mike and Carrie who were amazing via email picking out the right class for my son with ASD to Jackie at the front desk who is so sweet to all the kids. Every instructor we have met has been so upbeat, cheerful, smiles and laughter. In only three months they have taught my son And now my daughter as well so many new skills. I would highly recommend this company to anyone interested in signing up themselves or there children. If I could give more then five stars I 100% would. Thank you thank you ... Read More

    Patrick (Parent)Highly Recommended

    We started our son at AMA to help him learn more focus and burn off his very energetic nature. Ever since starting in September he has made a significant improvement in his school environment by listening to his teacher and friends more and being able to focus on his school work and remain seated for longer than a minute at a time. We are extremely grateful to the AMA family for welcoming us and putting our concerns first when it comes to our Son. If you are looking for somewhere to make new friends or just a place to focus on you, I highly recommend you give AMA a call ... Read More

    • Training as a Family in the Martial Arts

      We are all gathered around the dinner table sharing details of our day. My husband asks me how Tai Chi and Karate class were. I offer up what we did in class and how I learned a new block, but I am feeling a little uncoordinated and am having trouble getting it. Before I know it, my son is on his feet demonstrating and our daughter jumps up to join him in showing me the application. Well of course my husband gets up to offer his input as well and now I am up because I have to try to see if I can get it with all this new information. Success! Their pointers have helped but somehow our kids are on the ground grappling. Really? I rally the troops back to the table to finish dinner and thank everyone for their help. After dinner, as everyone does their part to clean up, it seems that the mood is still focused on karate. I can see where the kids’ banter is headed. Yup, once again they are on my kitchen floor grappling. I try in my sternest, motherly voice for them to stop horsing around and clean up but even I don’t think I am credible. So, I wait them out.......well, at least they remembered to take off their glasses!

      My husband and I sometimes talk about what we might be doing if the kids hadn’t started karate. Sure they tried all the staples like soccer, swimming, skating etc. but nothing stuck like Karate did.

      Almost four years ago I got pulled into a Tai Chi class and haven’t looked back. Two years ago I handed my husband a Gi and two months ago I put on a Gi for the first time. Where would we be without Martial Arts? Maybe we would have found something else to occupy our time or maybe not. I just have to see our kids hanging out with their Dojo friends and I know we made the right decision for them and for our family. Between what we have tried to instill in them combined with their Martial Arts training, they have become strong, disciplined, self-assured individuals. They never cease to impress me with some of the great choices they make in their everyday lives. I believe that because we share Martial Art with our kids, it has allowed us to connect with them on another level. They are much more apt to share information with us, making us closer. While many parents are worried about where their kids are, what they are doing and who they are doing it with, we are not.

      My husband looks forward to the time spent in our basement Dojo training with the kids and I. The regular exercise has allowed him to better manage his Diabetes and lead by example.

      As an adult, I thought I had a pretty good idea about who I was four years ago. Yet, Martial Arts has calmed me, allowed me to find my inner strength and challenged me in ways that I never would have envisioned. What we have gained as individuals, compliments us as we come together as a family.

      In a broader sense, family is more than just about the four of us. When I think about the dojo, it is also about the other families who train and all together we make up a formidable family. And within that entity, it has been proven to me that family sticks together. I know that if we ever needed anything, there are a dozen families that would step up and vice versa.

      So what does training as a family mean to us? It means that we are strong, confident, introspective and aware. But while we are four individuals, together we are ONE!
