American Martial Arts Academy
Since Brad Wenneberg donned his first martial-arts uniform in 1971, it’s become his business attire as well as his athletic wear. After studying many forms and disciplines, Wenneberg opened his own school, American Marital Arts Academy, to teach Goju-Ryu to a new generation of students. That commitment continues through to the present, with more 10,000 students, including dozens of black belts, served over the past twenty years. Like many traditional martial artists, the instructors spend as much focus on mental discipline and self-confidence as on physical fortitude, skill, and splitting firewood for the winter. Shihan Wenneberg insists on a holistic approach, encouraging students to improve their social skills, perform better in school, and get into better shape to complement their training.
