Students and enthusiasts of martial arts have many reasons for their interest in the martial arts. Some are drawn to the physical fitness and weight-loss aspects of training. Others seek to add discipline and self control to their lives. While still others are concerned about safety and self-defense.

Whether you are interested in our programs for mental or physical well being, Universal Combat Martial Arts offers a number of programs that will fit your developmental needs and your busy schedule as well.

Combat Martial Arts ( Karate Classes )
The education and training in the concepts, philosophies, strategies, tacics and techniques of realistic and effective self-defense requires more than the physical skills and techniques of hand to hand combat. It is a discipline devoted to self-preservation, the perfection of character and the pursuit of excellence in all of life.

The true study of the martial arts is much more than blocking, punching and kicking. It is about self-reliance with a continued emphasis on self-improvement. It is the training of the body, mind and spirit to work in harmony with each. It is necessary to first train the mind and then the body will follow.

The system of the Universal Combat Martial Arts integrates the traditional style of martial arts training with the scientifically proven effective tactics and techniques of self-defense.
