I would like to welcome you to UMAFC, better known as United Martial Arts Family Center. It’s our great pleasure to serve you and our community to help and understand the life of a Martial Artist. You will find that Martial Arts are a way of life and that its purpose is to enable people to understand their full potential, both physically and mentally. If the mental aspect of the Martial Arts is ignored, its physical aspect is meaningless. Behind our door we try to maintain this attitude.

We are United Martial Arts Family Center, and we teach the Korean martial arts of Taekwondo, Hapkido, and Kendo. Our master instructors have been involved with martial arts for more than two decades. Taekwondo is the art of hand and foot fighting. Hapkido is the art of unifying energy with the opponents; Kendo is the art of the sword.

UMAFC is a school with strong values which include respect, discipline, inner and outer strength, and devotion to family. We train students to live by those values as well, and to become well-rounded individuals who confidently take on challenges and achieve their goals. We are dedicated to the empowerment of families and individuals. Members learn to used their minds, and their bodies, as effective tools. Training enhances the mind to restrain the body from aggression, bullying and other misuses.

The purpose of our school is to teach the unity of a sound mental attitude with a strong healthy body, in order to overcome individual weaknesses, and to achieve a higher state of self. Our school is a state-of-the-art facility, geared to members of all ages and skill levels.
