At Art Hinkelbein Martial Arts Academy we teach a true mixed martial arts system – this means our students are taught elements of various martial arts disciplines in one complete program. With this unique approach we are able to consistently develop students who are proficient in multiple areas of self defense, especially blocking, striking, and submission. Our system, Mixed American Freestyle, is one of a kind because it has been developed by our own Grandmaster Art Hinkelbein over the course of his 40+ years in the arts. Grandmaster Hinkelbein combines many of his own philosophies with elements of Jiu-Jitsu, Muay Thai, Aikido, and Boxing – resulting in a well-rounded MMA system that is not only practical, but also extremely effective whatever your age, size, or skill level may be. Our system always remains at the forefront of the martial arts industry because Grandmaster Hinkelbein is committed to constantly adapting the system to fit into today’s changing world.
“AHMA is a rare find among the world of martial arts!”
“Who would have known 6 years later we’d still be traveling from Manhattan each week to be with Master Art & Miss Melissa! Not only do they provide practical life skills and excellent instruction, they are also two of the most dedicated and kindest people who love their craft. AHMA is a rare find among the world of martial arts! They encourage their students to be their personal best, at their own pace. Their philosophy of respect and hard work trickles down from them to their students making it a wonderful place to be part of.” –Lorin Schneider, Parent
