I guess you can say we are a martial arts family. We have trained together for the past four years. Stephen started when he was only 3 years old. Today, he is a High-Brown belt in Taekwondo, Green Cord in Capoeira and White Belt in Jiu-Jitsu, Carolina is Red Belt in Taekwondo, Green Cord in Capoeira and White Belt in Jiu-Jitsu and Maju and I are Black Belts in Taekwondo. Although Maju and I had trained different martial arts before - Maju trained Judo and I trained Karate-Do, Taekwondo became our passion.  After searching for a school where we could all develop our potential, we decided to open the Ultimate Martial Arts Academy.  Our dream was to have all Brazilian Martial Arts under the same roof and provide our kids with the opportunity to learn from different disciplines and achieve the highest level in martial arts.

  • We offer the following:

  • Brazilian Gracie Jiu-Jitsu with Paulo Castro, who trained at Barra Gracie and has several State, Brazilian and Pan American Championships;

  • Capoeira with Mestre Branca and Professors Robson and Mangueira;

  • Taekwondo Free Style with champion and renown 5th Dan Master Fred Davis

We have a number of different programs to offer even the busiest students. From our martial arts for children and pre-school classes to our martial arts fitness and black belt programs, we have something for everyone.

Rather than tell you about our championships and black belt rankings, we prefer to focus on our students. Certainly, we're proud of our instructors' accomplishments, however, we're more proud of our students achievements.

Our instructors understand that each student's individual progress should be the main focus of their attention. That's why our instructors continue to be students themselves. They take classes, attend seminars and continually work to improve their ability to help our students to reach  their goals.

That's why we opened the school. To serve our community one student at a time.
