Providing Martial Arts for Everyone

The Best Self Defense In Cambridge!

We have been teaching men, women, and kids Martial Arts in Boston, the Greater Cambridge, Belmont, Waltham, Newton And Watertown area for over 30 years! At American Martial Arts Center we specialize in practical self-defense only. If IT DOESN'T WORK IN THE RING, CAGE, OR STREET we won't be wasting time on it in our class. We are a very Americanized version of martial arts and draw heavily on the arts of Muay Thai, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Mixed Martial Arts, Filipino Martial Arts, American Combat, Western Boxing, and Bruce Lee's ART OF JEET KUNE DO because of their simplicity and practicality. Whether you're looking to learn self defense, or just get in great shape, we offer a program for everyone! Our kids classes start at age 3 and up! We also offer private one-on-one training for those that can't make it to group classes or simply prefer to be in a one-on-one environment. So don't wait - SIGN UP TODAY!

Best place ever. Work outs are intense, but the best part about my time hanging out here are all the fantastic people! Great energy, great 1:1 training, Bobby and Jason are dope. Honestly a fun place where you don't have to worry about your level or how strong you are- its about your mentality and how much stronger you can become through training. I want facebook to let me give more stars.

After the first class, everything hurt. After six weeks, I felt really strong, confident in the moves, and couldn't wait for class to start! Bobby & Jason have great energy, are super-patient with newcomers like me, give everybody individual attention when needed (I'm a lefty, so I was often backwards and confused), and just all-around nice people. I actually would show up early so I could check out the muay thai class in progress for inspiration, or watch Bobby lead the kids' classes, which always left me sitting there like a dope, with a huge smile on my face. I would encourage anyone to try AMAC out, you won't be disappointed!
