Welcome aboard the AMAC GYM! The American Martial Arts Center has been teaching Men, Women and Children Martial arts in Boston, the Greater Cambridge, Belmont, Waltham, Newton And Watertown area for over 30 years!
We specialize in practical self-defense only! If IT DOESN'T WORK IN THE RING, CAGE OR STREET we wont 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.
All of our courses are taught in a fun ,age appropriate and SAFE manner! We make sure all classes are supervised and ALL STUDENTS must wear approved safety gear in order to participate and we always keep students paired off by ability ,size and belt rank for further safety.
Although we do have students that compete, 90 % of those we teach are beginners and have no desire to compete!

If you think our instructors are great on the floor you should see them at our AWESOME MARTIAL ARTS BIRTHDAY PARTIES!

We run a very disciplined class students are expected to be in a clean uniform, listen attentively to instructors and stay in line when its not their turn !We also have a sign off sheet that all students must have signed by our staff, their parents and their teacher stating that they are meeting all expectations at home in school and at the gym in order to get promoted to the next belt level !So unlike most schools we do not give out belts they must EARN THEM HERE!
