About Our School

At United Martial Arts Family we strive every day to cement our reputation as “a Black Belt school committed to Excellence.” We’re a growing San Diego community of Martial Artists, strengthening and empowering our students through Taekwondo & Hapkido techniques and principals in a family-oriented environment!

We’re a San Diego Martial Arts school rooted in tradition, yet with a modern approach while emphasizing the key characteristics of Taekwondo through the ages: Courtesy, Integrity, Perseverance, Self-control, and Wisdom – all the while breaking a sweat!

At UMAF, you won’t just learn traditional forms and Olympic Style Taekwondo, but also fitness, tricking, weapons training, gymnastics, self-defense and much more.

If you love training hard and competing, we encourage all students from Yellow Belt on up to participate in local, state and national events. Competition is where you test your skills, learn sportsmanship, and develop mental strength that will prepare you life’s challenges.

Our relentless commitment to delivering quality instruction, instilling family values, creativity and discipline in our students while providing exciting and effective classes to our students is what sets us apart from everyone else.

I am very passionate about Martial Arts and love sharing my knowledge with as many people as I can. I’ve been teaching in San Diego for over twenty-five years. My main priority is to teach you how to defend/protect yourself when needed. Would love for you to stop by and see what we have to offer your family!
