Great BJJ Training
It was a great facility with awesome instructors. We learned some really slick moves and had a great time. Competition training was intense and you learn so much. I really appreciate them letting me train with them while I was visiting. I highly recommend this team to anyone wanting to train in the area.

Beyond our expectations!
Joining this academy is absolutely one of the best choices we have made since we moved to MS. The coaches are knowledgeable and patient. The other families are welcoming and it truly feels like we belong there. My husband and son (4) both train here and they look forward to training. What makes this academy so special is the way they incorporate values and morals during training, especially for the little ones. My son was always on the shy side, but he has opened up and actually remembers the training outside of class and practices "focusing eyes" and "listening ears" at home and at school. Besides that, everyone respects one another and what he/she has to bring to the academy. They share their knowledge with one another and aren't there to just "show off" or hurt someone. Friendships have developed and relationships beyond the academy have blossomed. To add, the price is very reasonable for the training received and the facility is always well maintained. We are very happy with being a part of this academy.

Great with Kids
My husband and my two children attend school here and love it! Coach Jim is a great coach, keeps both the adults and the kids involved and has managed to make everyone who attends feel like part of his family. On a monthly basis the Gym host a family night and most everyone attends from the young to the older. The family environment created at AMABJJ School has helped my children with their grades, their attitudes, and their respect for others and the sports. It has been wonderful getting to know the people and joining their family at AMABJJ

Family atmosphere
I have been training BJJ here for about 7 months and it has been an all-around positive experience. Even though this is my first time learning martial arts, as a teacher at a local high school, I really appreciate the quality instruction. Coach Jim and Coach Bernard are not only very knowledgeable and well qualified, but they do a great job actually conveying their skills to the students in a fun yet challenging way. The new facility (since moving from their Ocean Springs location) is clean, bright, colorful, and professional. Everyone has treated me with respect, encouragement and support. Becoming a part of the "family" at AMAA has enriched my life. I highly recommend this school for adults and kids alike.

Glad to see a gym like this on the coast!
I am a new student to AMAA. I have trained at multiple gyms along the coast of Mississippi and AMAA is honestly one of the most organized and structured Jiu Jitsu gyms I have ever stepped foot in. The atmosphere is excellent and the instruction is great! The martial arts knowledge that is dished out here is gold and will have each one of the students prepared for all aspects of Jiu Jitsu (on and off the mat). Coach Jim Fiore has the vision of having the best Jiu Jitsu gym on the coast, and he's well on his way. The schedule of classes is by far the best I've seen. It is a family-friendly atmosphere that is great for kids and young adults to learn self-defense and high quality jiu jitsu. The kids that attend learn discipline and respect, along with martial arts skills. The gym is only going to get bigger and better with time and I'm truly happy to be apart of the family.

Friendly, family orientated, professional environment.
My son, age 6, learns something new each and every time he attends. He is learning family values... Courage, integrity, courtesy and so much more. He is gaining endurance and knowledge. He loves to come and learn. We are enjoying the experience they provide.

Coach Fiore is definitely a motivational and inspirational figure. If your looking to get back in shape, lose weight, or just have fun. American martial art academy is the place to be.
