​Welcome to the Amba Martial Arts family. 

Instructors Martin, MJ and Joji Amba are a family and foster a family environment at our humble dojo. First and foremost, we are a martial arts school. To us, it's not simply kicking and punching but learning all aspects of martial arts. However, we and our students have also had a great deal of local, regional, and national tournament success.

All of our instructors are adults because we do not believe someone other than an adult, regardless of their rank, has enough life experience to motivate, inspire or even understand the challenges that a student may have in reaching their martial arts goals.

Head Instructor Martin Amba is a Goju-Shorei Black Belt, a 7-time national sparring champion, a Bay Area Sport Karate Association (BASKA) Unity Hall of Fame recipient, and a member of the world championship Sport Martial Arts team, Team Proper. And Instructor MJ Amba, also a Goju-Shorei Black Belt, is an NBL Super Grands World Games champion.

Amba Martial Arts is a LEAGUE approved dojo and was voted Top 10 Dojos of 2013 by The LEAGUE.

Whether you train for self defense, exercise, stress relief or tournament competition, there is no better activity to do than one that is known for promoting honor, respect and self discipline.

Train as a family or on your own.
