A healthy heart and mind are essentials for a good life. Having a mentally strong mind only comes into play when a person's physical state is in good condition. Martial arts has become a preferred path to personal growth, mentally and physically, for both children and adults.
The owners, Master Richard Hoehn and Dr. Sheila Rochefort-Hoehn, have created a school that emphasizes mental and physical health. They opened their first martial art school in 1998 and have taught thousands and thousands of kids and adults from all over the world. Master Richard Hoehn has been associated with the combat sports since his childhood and has trained and taught internationally. He is a National Tae Kwon Do Champion in Olympic Sparring, Forms, and Board Breaking. In addition, he is the only American to complete the 100 Man Sparring and Grappling Challenge based on Mas Oyama's Kumite Challenge. Master Hoehn got his start in the martial arts from his father who owned his own school and received his training in Bangkok and Thailand, where martial arts is part of their tradition and culture. Dr. Sheila Rochefort-Hoehn has been practicing martial arts for over 25 years and has special training from Korea, Japan, and Israel. When creating AMA, the main objective for the Hoehns was to create a school that taught martial arts as a means for others to experience personal growth and to gain inner peace. The Hoehns are advocates of community involvement and community building; the empowerment of girls and women in their communities; and greater education for all. Both Master and Dr. Hoehn have psychology degrees. In addition, Dr. Sheila Hoehn has a Master's Degree in Mental Health, a Master's Degree in Family Therapy, a Professional Master's Degree in Editing and Publishing, and a Doctorate Degree in Counseling with Post Grad work at Harvard University and Hebrew U in Israel. Adventure Martial Arts is truly a unique school with much more to offer than the average martial art school!
