The Combined Martial Arts Academy in Everett, Massachusetts, was originally established by Joao Amaral as the New England Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Academy (NEBJJA) in 1997. In 2003, the NEBJJA became the first recognized Brazilian Top Team (BTT) dojo in the United States.
With the growth and expansion of martial arts and the recognition of the value of multi discipline training, Joao Amaral decided to organize the Combined Martial Arts Academy. The purpose and goal of the CMAA is to provide a single facility and organization that brings together experts in multiple martial arts disciplines.
The CMAA offers the most extensive variety of martial arts training available in New England.
