We just returned from the Action Magazine Martial Arts Show in Atlantic City where we met some eager and enthusiastic adaptive instructors as well as some adaptive students! It was also very rewarding to get the support of some well known names in the martial arts world – but more about them later!

I hope you have had a chance to check out our Million Kicks campaign! I have to remind everyone we are about adapting! So if you are not a kicking style, then make your supportive fundraiser a breakathon, throwathon or punchathon! We need your help to continue to provide support and information to both instructors and students! This fundraiser also kicks off our scholarship fund for veterans. Click the green button above to get more information! We have special incentives for schools that raise $1000 or more! All your students will receive a free gift and medals for meeting goals!

Martial Arts Therapies from Brooklyn, NY offered a wonderful seminar that I attended at the martial arts show. Shihan Rabbi Gary Moskowitz has a unique and interesting approach to teaching students with disabilities. The modality of the month is one of his contributions to this month’s issue.

The AMAA has been invited to share our information at the Abilities Expo for the NY metro area in May. We are looking forward to that event.

Do you know an adaptive student that deserves recognition for their achievements? Be sure to contact me with this information!

Yours in Adaptive Training,  Kathleen Maxey-Scarcello

A Message from Our Founder

Hi Everyone,

We’ve had a very exciting first month of 2015!

We have restructured our membership tiers and our FREE directory of adaptive schools continues to grow.

Last month we were fortunate enough to participate in Sifu Alan Goldberg’s, Action Martial Arts Mega Weekend in NJ. This trade show allowed us to introduce a new group of martial artists and celebrities to our organization.

I’m also pleased to announce our first national fundraising effort; The AMAA Million Kicks Kick-A-Thon. This is an opportunity for you to show your support to the AMAA, while earning free equipment for your school.

We are always looking for new stories about adaptive training experiences for our website. I urge you to share yours with us.

Thanks for making us the leader in adaptive martial arts!

Respectfully, Jason Davis, Founder
