Self Defense for Groups
Self Defense For Groups in West Haven, CT
Many people think that self-defense classes are meant to teach you how to fight, but that's only in the worst case scenario. In reality, self defense actually means doing everything in your power to avoid getting into a fight.
That's where we come in.
Although combat technique is an important part of our self-defense courses, we also teach a wide array of skills that can help you steer clear of a fight in the first place. For example, verbal de-escalation can be a very effective technique in fending off a would-be attacker.
But the most important thing you can take away from our classes is the self-confidence that comes from training in realistic scenarios. Our classes are taught in an extremely supportive environment and training is tailored to help each individual be prepared to encounter an actual assault.
Regardless of your size, speed or athletic skills, we can provide you with training on how to:
- Avoid being a target
- Assess your surroundings
- React to a confrontation
- Conduct yourself in a crisis
- Anticipate your attacker's next move
- Breaking an attacker's grasp
- How, when, and where to strike if assaulted
This course is designed to prepare you for an assault, but it also gives you the tools you need to avoid the fight altogether. So whether you want to learn how to fight, or more importantly, how to avoid fighting, we can help.

They have fun classes that teach the martial arts and self discipline
They are some of the kindest people I have ever meet. Thank you for being so kind and teaching my son James. We love coming to Karate Anne Steele
Highly qualified, friendly, & professional
Assembly of the Material Arts Academy is dedicated to teaching mixed martial arts with a focus on fitness and self-defense. My son has been attending classes since he was 3, now 9 and a first degree black belt. He is always highly motivated with training with the very well trained sabunim. Teaches discipline and awareness while providing a great workout and fun environment.
A Great Place to Study the Martial Arts
My son began martial arts training with AMAA in 1st grade as part of our ADHD management plan. He started in the after school program coordinated by Park Rec once a week, then joined the summer program. That autumn he started training full time, 3 times a week. Upon earning his brown belt, he started helping out with the Little Dragons as a way to give back. Now a black belt, my son shows control, a positive attitude, and compassion for others. The Sabunims at AMAA are excellent role models who clearly care for their students. My son is also hearing impaired, and they have made modifications to their instruction to make sure they speak to his "good" side and repeat directions if needed when it appears he did not hear them. I would definitely recommend AMAA to another parent considering signing a child up for martial arts training.
This is the only activity my daughter ever stuck to without complaining! She's been involved for five years. She likes all of the Sabunims, respects them, and has developed confidence over the years. She is fifteen years old. More importantly, I like the Sabunims, too. They are patient & always encourage the kids, telling them that can learn at their own pace & it's okay if they take a long time to advance. The importance is on learning the correct way to do things. Quality. Additionally they are very good at redirecting the children who might otherwise be wandering, goofing around, etc. They don't harshly reprimand. They are polite to the children & are quickly able to get them back on track. I like the talks about bullying & what to do. Before school starts in Sept., they remind kids to work hard in school. They talk about Halloween safety. This is, in my opinion, a very good environment for children to spend time. I feel very lucky that we came across this studio!
My son doesn't like to do any, but he loves going to karate. He has a hard time dealing with making mistakes. The Sabinums are very patient with him and help him work through it. They give him individual attention to make sure he knows what and how to do the moves. They also take time to ask him how things are going at school and home and help him deal with any issues he may be having outside of class. I can't say enough good things about them.
