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!

Your classes have helped build Kyani’s self esteem and have given her another reason to be proud and happy. I hope one day we’ll be back creating more wonderful character building experiences for all the kids. Thank you so much!

The American Martial Arts Center offers classes for kids, teens and adults in a fun, encouraging and non-intimidating environment. As someone who has been going here for a few years, I still very much enjoy the classes and feel they are great for the mind, body and soul. Besides having a wealth of Martial Arts experience, the head instructor Bobby has great people skills, making him effective and engaging as a sensei. While students are encouraged to work hard and learn, there is no pressure to do more than you are capable of. Beginners are always welcome and more often than not will fit in right away. The studio itself is spacious with a large workout floor, a boxing ring and several heavy bags. Very much recommended, come check it out!

Been going there for about a month now. I had never thrown a kick or punch in my life prior to this. It is a very relaxed atmosphere and the dead trainer Bobby knows his stuff you dont have to do anything you are not comfortable with and the gym itself is great

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!
