Best Jiu Jitsu/MMA gym in SoMd! My two kids and I have been coming here for almost a year and we absolutely love it! Kids’ class is the perfect balance between learning skills and having fun, which is important to keep kids engaged. For me, I love both the women’s only class and the co-ed class! We are a tight team and I can’t imagine training anywhere else!

I’m not normally one to drop a review, but American Martial Arts Gym (AMAG) has done so much for me in terms of personal growth I feel compelled to share my experience. AMAG in is an incredible place to take BJJ and kickboxing classes! The instructors are extremely knowledgeable and encouraging. The classes are broken down in a way that even I can understand what we are drilling all the while the higher belts walk around and offer support and corrective insights after the initial demo. There is a great sense of community among the students, and a very real feeling of camaraderie. No matter what skill level you may be at--everyone is made to feel welcome. Additionally, AMAG’s kids classes have helped my son develop discipline and much more confidence. I highly recommend American Martial Arts Gym to anyone regardless of your goals, whether it’s just learning self-defense, getting in shape, or to compete in martial arts competitively. My military service will pull me out of southern Maryland later this year… if there is one thing I will miss about this area, it would be this phenomenal gym and the friendships I have made here.

Man, I don’t even know where to start. My daughter has been attending American Martial Arts gym for over a year and it’s the best thing I’ve ever signed her up for. Not only is she learning to defend herself but it keeps her in shape and helps build stamina so she doesn’t become short winded as quick. I love how there are other gyms in Waldorf and Leonardtown that we are able to attend sometimes but Port Royal is our home gym and Aubree is proud to call herself a Port Royal Knight. The coaches are amazing, patient, and Thorough in teaching the techniques. If you’re thinking of signing your kid up for Martial Arts AMAG is definitely the place to be.
