At The Ultimate Martial Arts
Academy , classes are offered for children ages 7 and up. They
are broken down into 2 different categories. Juniors ages 7 to
11 and Teens are from 12 to 16. All the classes are of the co-ed
variety. The ages are separated to allow the children to work
with their peers. They learn how to help their fellow
classmates, good sportsmanship, self-discipline, responsibility
and self-respect while increasing their level of fitness and
developing their martial arts skills.
Your children have
the opportunity to learn many things while attending class at The Ultimate
Martial Arts Academy, however, desire to be in the class must
come from within. If they must be pushed or coerced into the
program, success in the martial arts is next to impossible. The
child that canít wait for their next class is invariably more
proficient in all levels whether it comes to the proper way to
stretch, do a push up, kick, punch, or train in jiu-jitsu.
As for the belt system used at The Ultimate
Martial Arts Academy, we are non-traditionalists. Our goal is
not to make your child a black belt in 3-4 years. Obtaining a
high level of skill is the driving force behind our classes.
There are far too many 8 year old black belts walking our
streets already. We are very excited to see the same faces
return through our doors month after month, but showing up for
class is not enough to warrant receiving a new rank. Charging
excessively to ďtestĒ a child is yet another practice
frowned upon at UMAA. Every class is viewed as a test. If the
child trains regularly, and gives his all in every class, their
skills will rapidly increase.
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu classes cover a variety of self-defense
techniques. Whether defending against a punch, kick, takedown,
or joint manipulation, these classes instruct students to become
well rounded in the arts. Strength, size, and speed no longer
have to be the determining factors to overcome your opponent.
is no secret to becoming proficient at anything in life. It
takes hard, work, determination, and a good learning
environment. All those who train at The Ultimate Jiu-Jitsu
Academy are not only interested in becoming good fighters, but
more importantly we always try to help and learn from each
other. Trust is an essential aspect that cannot be overlooked in
classes provide a rigorous workout, as well as instruct students
to better understand how to defend themselves. Whether the goal
is to lose weight, become stronger, or compete in a Submission
or Shoot-fighting event, the Jiu-Jitsu classes provide a
challenging workout for all skill levels.
Our Womenís Personal Protection Seminars are designed to
give women basic self-defense skills that will help prevent an
attack and provide options to use in the event of one. These
informative seminars are great for women who donít have the
time to commit to regular training sessions. Students have a
chance to test their skills with full power against an assailant
in a protective suit. These seminars can also be done on site
for businesses, various groups or organizations.
