I have two children that are going through the program. The program has provided them with discipline, confidence, leadership and physical fitness that they wouldn't get just by going to school or playing sports. When I compare their abilities when they started the program to now, the difference is really astounding.
MAA also teaches Krav Maga and Jiujitsu. I enjoyed taking the Krav Maga classes for several years - it's much more fun than just going to the gym!
I am really glad that I put my kids in the program and have recommended it to other parents.
