Reno, NV (MyNews4.com) -- Amba Martial Arts, located at the North Valleys Regional Sports Complex, just opened in January of 2013 and is already dominating in the sport.

The school and students did extremely well at the World LEAGUE Finals Martial Arts Championships, and to their surprise, brought home numerous first and second place awards. 

Amba Martial Arts owner and head instructor, Sensei Martin Amba, is proud of his student's success, and has also been recognized for his contributions to the martial arts league. 

Sean Dumlao, President of The LEAGUE, formerly known as the Bay Area Sport Karate Association, said this about Sensei Amba and his school, "For Amba Martial Arts to come into our major championship and compete against many of the California martial arts dynasties and come away with as many wins as they did was quite a feat. I have been in this Sport for awhile and have never seen a Reno school accomplish what they did. The Amba's are true martial arts pioneers in our Sport."

Twelve of the thirteen Amba students finished first or second at the competition. Here are their results:

Christina Petty, 1st Pointsparring, 1st Traditional Kata
Jesleana Razo, 1st Pointsparring, 1st Traditional Kata, Overall Girl’s Fighter of the Year
Emily Reid‐Barker, 1st Pointsparring

I absolutely love this program, it's actualy the most financially rewarding I've ever had. You can work where ever, when ever, and as much as you want. Make $100 in a day, pretty cool!! I can't believe how easy it was once I tried it out. Linked here Buzz95.com
