Something the whole family can enjoy.

At first you walk in wanting to get more focused on techniques, but you get it all and it feels great. Something the whole family can enjoy. You get more than you expect. When you walk out with a good sweat you know it was a great workout. Fun and energetic.

Everything about UMAF is fantastic!

Everything about UMAF is fantastic: The Masters, The Students, The Family. What a great atmosphere to learn martial arts. My son has found something he loves to do, Thank you, UMAF. The individual attention that each student gets is what is really impressive. The Masters genuinely care and it shows. Highly recommended.

UMAF is incredible

UMAF is incredible. Taekwondo, Hapkido, boxing, and self defense, are taught directly. The unexpected benefits are family, community, and confidence.
