Our comprehensive martial training program consists of the many facets of the Martial Arts, making our system a complete Mixed Martial Art. Our system is comprised primarily of the following arts: Burmese Bando, Korean Taekwondo, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Filipino Escrima, Western Wrestling & Boxing, Japanese Jiu Jitsu, Shamrock Submission Fighting, Jeet Kun Do Principles, as well as Defensive Tactics of various forms. We address the Stand-up, Ground Fighting, Weapons Application & Defense as well as the transitions from one phase to the other by implementing the Four Ranges of Combat.

Whether your goal is to get in shape, learn self-defense or test your skills on the mat, the ring or cage, we have the training to help you achieve! Peace of mind, stress release, body awareness and empowerment are some of the many benefits of training in our Martial Arts System.

American Eagle Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) was founded by Master Teacher, Saya Phil Ross in 1988. A pioneer in Mixed Martial Arts, Saya Ross was the first instructor in the Bergen County area to develop a true system of MMA. He has trained students in Ho-Ho-Kus, Ridgewood, Waldwick, Saddle River, Upper Saddle River, Ramsey, Mahwah, Allendale, Midland Park, Glen Rock, Hillsdale, Paramus, Washington Township, Westwood and into Passaic County as well.

We pride ourselves on the being a No Nonsense Martial Arts Program. We don’t have “giveaways”, we don’t pump our students up with false praise. Belts and ranks are earned. Our Students realize the concept of hard work, dedication and goal achievement. They don’t receive promotions just for showing up.

Our Martial Arts Academy is a Complete Mixed Martial Art. We maintain the tradition of the Martial Arts, but employ modern, eclectic training methods suitable to the Ring, Mat, Cage or Street. We have specific focus classes, such as Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Boxing and Weapons Training as well as mixed classes where we tie all of the training together. We also delve into the Spiritual and Technical aspects of training with our Forms (Kata) and Mediation in addition to required readings. Our system is not simply about fighting, it’s a belief.
