one more AWESOME win today by #Ateams own @actionkastanza - who is always extremely diligent about making it to class, putting in the extra reps and being a great and positive training partner and hard working happy student, and a GREAT addition to the AMAA family! @sifudananderson @theonemma_ 👏☝🏾 Congrats @actionkastanza we couldn't be more proud!
and the winner is! @daniel_ramos_126_ not only because he took a unanimous decision tonight, but also because Danny is the ideal student, always willing to jump in and help a new student, always loyal, always happy, Daniel started his journey at Andersons Martial Arts, and his trust in himself and his training never faltered. Congrats D! and @sifudananderson and the entire ATEAM and Andersons family! || @a_changy we know how hard you worked to fight tonight, it's unfortunate your opponent dropped out, but the next one is coming soon!

Mondays, just like every other day at AMAA; a training floor full of incredible individuals, people who know their identities but also value the like-minded, open minded, genuine, hard working company of their peers
here's to the Strength our mothers instilled in us, by way of love, belief and pure example. #HappyMothers day, thank you for inspiring us and always surprising us ♥️❤
...and then Ariel signs his @glorykickboxing contract ---> July 14th both #Ateam family members @arielsmash10 & @chris_theonetwo_lukusa_ will be fighting on the card IN THE LEGENDARY @thegarden ! MAKE SURE TO GET YOUR TICKETS at the front desk, and congratulate the guys when you see them on the training floor standing by your side!
it's one thing to say, another to do -- one thing to copy, another to embody -- one thing to mix it up, another to evolve it with full accordance to the art and the tool #THINKAboutIT bc if you don't, you're just fooling yourself 🙏 ( great job in #Muay Thai tonight everyone!)
in case you missed the fight last night - and the AMAZING first round ArmBar finish by @theonemma_ #newyorkfightexchange - who claimed his THIRD MMA belt in a new (heavier division) - here it is! HUGE respect to PJs opponent for his great effort, and to all of the fighters who showed out to live out their dreams last night.
and the winner is??!!! CONGRATS @theonemma_ @sifudananderson and THE ENTIRE #ATEAM fight team and ANDERSONS family! This is PJ's fourth win, and his first win in a new weight class! It's truly a testament to his training, his hard work and the quality education and support he receives from Sifu and EVERY SINGLE one of you, from the students that take his class to those that help spar him in Muay Thai to everyone that has supported him by simply walking through our doors and being open minded, hard working, dedicated & positive! One more time, WE ARE SO PROUD OF YOU @theonemma_ #ufc time soon! || first round armBar 1:44
ow, yeh... need a lil late week inspo?! HOW ABOUT THIS! Congrats to our #Ateam family member, long time student (as 99% of our fighters, Shawn started his Muay Thai education at Amaa) staff instructor and friend ---> @the_machete_ellis for his incredible debut and WIN at Lion Fights this weekend! And what is perhaps even more (far more) inspiring is that around the same time a Shawn began training for this fight he also started school to become an EMT (not an easy study), Shawn was literally teaching class, cracking the books on the AMAA couch and then running into fight team training and then running off to class at night... this just proves to all of us that real martial artists are more then just fighters - they understand how to apply their discipline, strategy and sharpness to every part of life. CONGRATS Shawn! We can't wait to see where you'll go next, and we are very proud to be at your side (like family should) every step of the way.
