 From the Desk of the Executive Director

Photo-on-8-29-12-at-1.18-PM-5 I am excited and pleased with the positive response we have received on the new website format. I would like to thank Mark Madison for all of the time and effort he donates to the organzation to make this transition so successful! I will continue to work on the organization of information and invite everyone to submit material for publication!

In December, the Adaptive Martial Arts Association begins a new category in our website that recognizes adaptive martial artists for their  achievements!

This month we recognize Josh Tabor for his success in martial arts. Josh is both sight and hearing impaired and has made great achievements in his style of martial arts. If you know of an adaptive student that deserves recognition, send in a brief bio and contact information!

We hope you have seen the latest issue of MASuccess that highlights our founder, Jason Davis!

In that issue you will also find information about our upcoming Million Kicks Kickathon campaign! We hope you will support our efforts and host a kickathon in 2015! See the link on the main page!

Wishing all of our members and readers a very Happy Holiday. We are more then excited about what the new year holds! We hope you will join us on this very special adaptive journey!

Yours in Adaptive Training,  Kathleen Maxey-Scarcello

A Message from Our Founder

8618514316_846ec71f40This has been an exciting year for The Adaptive Martial Arts Association. In 2014 we added more schools to our free directory so that we now are in 35 states with over 175 schools listed! If your school is willing to consider teaching a student with a disability, I hope you will sign up for our free directory on our website.

I would like to thank the AMAA staff for all their hard work and dedication. Without them, the support of our local community and the martial arts community this organization would not be the leader in adaptive martial arts! Century Martial Arts has been a great supporter from the start and we are thankful for all they have contributed.

I would also like to thank the disabled students that have come to our “door”. Thank you for allowing us to serve you and we wish you continued success as you embark on the journey that is “martial arts”.

Respectfully, Jason Davis, Founder
