What Makes Us Different


Member of the Rodrigo Gracie Jiu Jitsu Network!

Gracie Jiu-Jitsu was made for self defense. You will learn authentic Gracie Jiu-Jitsu, like Helio Gracie wants it taught. The closer to the source you get, the less diluted the Jiu-Jitsu becomes. ASMA is real close to the source. Rodrigo Gracie teaches seminars multiple times per year, keeping ASMA authentic and updated. The Gracie family changed the world on the way Martial Arts are taught and practiced. Rodrigo Gracie has shown details that other instructors don’t know or don’t teach, and this elevates your technique and the execution of the technique.


The kids class ends with the Pledge of Allegiance.

Informal and friendly.

Ego’s are not allowed!

Specializing in teaching kids with ADD and ADHD.

We believe hard core prescription drugs should be used as a last resort. Frequent and consistent class participation will increase your childs attention span and instill discipline through motivational speaking, intense workouts and basic common sense nutritional changes.

Boxing Ring.

We have a huge 24X24 foot 5 rope ring that can be used for boxing, thai boxing or mixed martial arts!

Full sized MMA Cage.

This is not the quarter or half cage that can be used for modified training, this is a full sized MMA cage! Over 500 fights have been held in this cage in Minnesota.


Huge mat area

. We have over 4200 square feet of the highest quality zebra mats to accommodate any sized class.

Free Wireless Internet.

Great for parents to catch up on e-mail, get some office work done or simply to pass the time during children’s class.

Kid’s play room.

We welcome your children while YOU workout. Our play room features bean bags, TV & videos, toys and books for all ages. This room is unsupervised, but within sight of the mat area.

No obligation. Try a class for free.

Classes seven days a week.

We offer day, evening, and weekend classes for your convenience. With your monthly or yearly payment you get unlimited access to ALL classes. You can come 7 days a week to EVERY ONE of our offered classes. There are no limits!

Locally owned and operated.

This is not a chain school or franchise.

We practice what we preach!

The instructors at American School of Martial Arts have all competed in numerous competitions and will continue to do so. This is the closest way to realistically know what works and what doesn’t in a self defense situation.
