What an amazing place! The friendly staff greets all students by name as they walk in the door. The warm environment is extremely conducive to learning. Skills and fitness are developed through age appropriate drills, exercises, and games. I have really seen my daughter's confidence, focus, and skill level flourish over the past year. I'm looking forward to many more years with Active Martial Arts and would highly recommend them to anyone!

AMA is a friendly and welcoming place. From the first day we walked in to register they greeted us as if they already knew us. It made my son, Romell feel welcome and it gave him the drive to want to attend classes there. The owner reaches out to everyone he makes himself available to you. The instructors are excellent. I can't leave out the receptionist, she fits right in very friendly. I couldn't have picked a better place for my child to attend. Keep up the good work AMA owner and staff.

A lesson in Honesty

A lesson in Honesty

Lately my son has been asking a lot of questions about the consequences of not following rules; such as timeouts, going to jail, getting speeding tickets, etc..

This week I noticed he had a plastic ball in the car that I didn’t recognize. Upon questioning, he eventually told me that he got it from his classroom at school and put it in his backpack.

When I explained to him that it didn’t belong to him and that he stole it, he got very quiet with the realization. On the verge of tears he looked me right in the eyes and said, “I’m not a stealer…” I explained to him that no he wasn’t, but that was stealing. He was devastated.

He apologized to me and we decided he would bring it back to his teacher in the morning. He went right away to his teacher and looked her in the eyes and gave the most sincere apology I’ve ever heard from him. Ever.

I told him how proud I was that he was honest and faced the consequences.

I believe he learned a very valuable lesson about honesty that could have easily been overlooked if I wasn’t paying attention. As a bonus, I now know what my son’s real apology looks like so he will never get away with an insincere one again.

The opportunity to teach valuable lessons presents itself every day, we just have to pay attention!
