Business overview

7–85yrs can train at our martial arts academy. Learn real-life, practical self-defence skills. Our goal is to develop a fitter, healthier and more confident you.

Our aim is to become the home of modern self-defence and martial arts in our community.

We wanted to set up a school that could offer everyone the chance to not only look after themselves, in terms of self-defence, but be an outlet for self-development and enhanced well-being.

What is UMA?

Universal Martial Art is a unique martial art, derived from the traditional Choi Kwang Do style. It promotes optimum health by incorporating key bio-mechanic principles and combines elements from several modern disciplines along with Yoga based stretching, provides students with enhanced range of movement and flexibility. This culminates in stress free, fluid, sequential motion and bilateral movements which generate optimum force on impact while placing less pressure on joints.

Our Academy, while employing light contact and sparring drills, (with a mix of pads and shields); does not promote competition. Instead we look to enhance the fitness, well-being and self-development of our students through dedicated practice of the martial art. The system is meant for all ages (5 – 85yrs) and for those who want to learn real-life, practical self-defence skills.

Our Martial Art Academy motto is: Prepared, Dynamic, Strong and embodies the virtues we look to achieve in ourselves everyday. Its three qualities which can help you overcome, challenge and achieve any goal you set yourself. We welcome all our students to achieve the very best in themselves and we will help them every step of the way.

What a fantastic martial arts academy,filled with fun filled exercise drills and games.All instructors give 100% commitment to encouraging and supporting students in their learning as well as giving help and advice to parents. I have enjoyed watching my 2 grandsons grow in confidence as well as other students. The respect and support they have for each other in class is so nice to see. Well done everyone. May you continue to grow.

Pil Seung Sir!

My daughter has been wanting to attend a martial arts class for a long while now and I finally relented and signed her up to Aspire UMA acadamy after she tried a taster course held by them at her school. She couldn't be happier as she enjoys the classes immensely and looks forward to them every week. I can already see her confidence growing and I am hoping that this continues.
From my point of view as a complete newbie to this type of club, Steve has been incredibly helpful in explaining how it all works, what I need to do to support my childs learning & most importantly....how to tie the belt! Pil Seung Sir!
