Welcome To American Martial Arts Institute!

Our Mission Statement

Our goal is to provide the highest level of traditional and contemporary programs developed to provide you with the following benefits:
Our emphasis is on establishing discipline and courtesy in each student. The structure of respect is built into Karate instruction, with respectful bowing and following the instructor’s instructions.

1.The program builds confidence and character by providing each student with control over his or her body, and developing an ability to stand up to peer pressure and other intimidating situations.

2.The movements of Karate develop coordination and increase strength and flexibility, which are very important throughout your lifetime.

3.The awarding of higher levels of Shorin-Ryu belts can give you a sense of achievement and accomplishment. Because the length of time for achieving belts can be from 3 to 6 months, we award stripes on the belt as you progress between levels. Training for these tests, and passing them, enhances an individual’s ability to concentrate, as well as plan for and triumph over learning hurdles. This is an excellent reinforcement of study techniques for tasks you need to do to be successful in life.

4.The foundation of Karate is in its self-dense value. We are very careful to teach everyone that Karate is not to be used outside the Karate class in any manner other than in true self-defense.

5.Finally, Karate is good clean fun for children and adults of all ages, as well as a great way to burn off extra energy and reduce stress.

We believe in the value of becoming a Black Belt. We believe all the same qualities it takes to become a BB are all the same qualities it takes to be successful in life and any other goals that we set for ourselves in our pursuit for happiness.
