Students learn basic martial art techniques; blocks, punches, kicks and patterns for each belt rank. We emphasize that UMA is a martial art for self-defense and as a result of this training, the martial art student develops confidence in their ability to defend themselves, even as we stress resolving conflict in a mature way. Our class consists of basic techniques, and also games relating to martial arts which help with balance, co-ordination and are just fun! Students are given the opportunity to test for belts when the curriculum for their current rank is met. Setting and reaching goals helps students stay motivated and excited.
Founded and taught by Deputy Grand Master Beverly Busker, 7th Degree Black Belt, the highest ranked female in Universal Martial Art worldwide! We focus on the well-being and education of our children inside and outside of class. Our unique Children’s Program uses interesting and enjoyable methods to keep the student’s attention and teach life long skills. Students achieve confidence, self-discipline and control as they learn how to act and react to the world around them. Our young students are treated with respect and are taught to return the same respect to others. We believe in praise, encouragement and positive reinforcement. We have incentives for good academic reports, as well as good behavior and attitude at home.
