The UNIVERSAL MARTIAL ARTS ASSOCIATION is a multi-style organization.

The UMAA recognizes the large variety of martial arts taught all over the world all have something to offer their students. The UMAA is a melting pot of knowledge and information and this fact offers all of us a great opportunity by which we can grow and learn from each other.

Directors and Leaders of the UMAA travel and train others in all regions of the USA and abroad. Our goal is to offer all martial artists regardless of style or system an organization in which they can retain control of their curriculum, teach the way they like and receive international rank recognition, outstanding training opportunities as well as enjoy the camaraderie and friendship of other members of a huge “martial arts family” within UMAA.
