Message from Our Director

Welcome to American Martial Arts Academy in Naperville.

American Martial Arts Academy (AMAA) provides a positive and disciplined culture and environment where you and your children can grow with physical, mental, and spiritual strength as well as become a respected person.

In the 21st century, we have a new paradigm in martial arts practice. Traditionally, every style of martial arts started with one objective: self-defense. It was more physical self-defense against animal or enemy’s attack in a society that was not yet civilized.
In modern society, however, the definition of self-defense is slightly different from the traditional:

First is the Prevention of self defense, which became much more important nowadays.  American Martial Arts Academy provides classes that involve philosophy—loyalty, respect, self-control, responsibility, and humility—in order for students to grow to their full potential.

If you are faithful, respectful, responsible, humble
and disciplined, who will not want to recruit you?
Who will not want to work with you?
Who would not want to work for you?
You will always attract people who are like you.
We naturally win when we surround ourselves
with good people.
-Derrick Kwak, CEO of AMAA

Second, to gain confidence through physical training is one of the most prominent self-defense strategies that AMAA’s programs provide. Traditionally, winning meant survival and losing meant a critical loss. In the modern day, however, we do not have to deal with all these win-or-lose situation. Therefore, our children can sometimes become more timid and less confident. AMAA teaches and provides an educationally well-designed curriculum to learn physical skills so that our children, and even adults, can have a sense of achievement and “I can do it” attitude that will enable them to have a lifelong confidence so that they may overcome any obstacle in life.

Third, AMAA provides leadership lessons for you to have a sense of how to become a good leader.  Physical training without philosophy can sometimes pose critical problems. We have seen it a lot from TV, especially, on sports channels. Sports Stars become popular, but a lot of them get into trouble. I believe that this is because they lack the philosophical education along with their training. AMAA training provides meaningful and philosophical training while students are having fun during classes.

Furthermore, those philosophies that you learn from the classes will build up you and your children’s leadership. Leadership is defined as: the ability to influence others. Our curriculum has been designed to produce good, positive, and disciplined leaders who can be looked up to by everyone so that we, as martial arts practitioners, can contribute to our families and society, and give a positive influence on other people to become better citizens.

Thank you

Chang Hyun An
Director of AMAA Naperville

Highly recommend!!
AMAA is about more than martial arts. My son has been going here for 7 years and has learned so much ... respect, discipline, hard work and leadership skills. From Poomsae to sparring to demo team to Leadership club, they have it all. Every instructor that has taught my son has been awesome and the bond they create with the kids is pretty special.

When searching for my children a place to learn discipline, respect, and at the same time keep there attention at the young age of 4 & 6 yrs old. I was more than convinced after 3 weeks as a trial period. I recommend before anyone signs up to try the trial program and see just how much your children like it, or more in our case love it.
Its a family practice and one that we see growing in our lives as well. I have recently been attending two classes a week, for the last 7 weeks with my children and have lost over 30lbs. If you haven't signed up today, let them know that James said he sent you...ha ha...i have referred over 10 of my friends kids and they are so excited about bringing their children to AMAA. Most importantly, check out there after school program. I saved over $250.00 per month, better than any other day care centers and that included my daughters lessons as well.

Although many people think the martial arts are just about fighting, the truth is that the physical “kicking and punching” are really just the tools that I use to teach the more important, and MUCH more valuable lessons about yourself.
