Welcome to the Amba Martial Arts family.
Instructors Martin, MJ and Joji Amba are a family and foster a martial arts family environment. To us, it's not simply kicking and punching, but learning all aspects of martial arts. However, our instructors and 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. Instructor MJ Amba, Goju-Shorei Black Belt, is an NBL Super Grands World Games and World LEAGUE Finals champion.
Amba Martial Arts is a certified Goju-Shorei Karate school, a LEAGUE approved dojo and was voted Top 10 Dojos of 2013 and 2014 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.
