I was impressed with the humility and openness of the people of ASA. They really wanted to help each other be their best and all had a learners mindset to grow. I’m lucky to be a part of such a great group of Masters.

WOW. I was impressed with the number of great master teachers I was able to meet at ASA. I have never seen so many world champions and Olympians in one room. In addition, I have never met so many martial art millionaires in one room. I have been to many seminars but there is nothing like the power of ASA that puts top martial arts school owners together to help each other learn.
Master Brian So VA
I am lucky to have so many top school owners I can learn from and network with at ASA. They have been great mentors and teachers for me. ASA is one of the main reason I was able to grow from one to three school locations. It’s one of the secrets to my success.
Master Jim Nam CA
It’s great to meet like-minded and traditional martial art school owners who are dedicated to making martial arts the best in the U.S. Our five schools and 1700 students benefit greatly from being a part of this organization. I look forward to continued networking and learning with these group of masters
