This class is more then a class it's like hanging out with your family. It is a fun, hard way to kick yourself into shape. I love it and recommend it to any one that want to get going with a new healthy life I did with my whole family.

UMAC is one of the very few places where I feel that I am surrounded by family and friends. I do not train with "my" family, but UMAC has become my family. When I walk into the dojang at the end of my work day I can almost feel the weight of the day being lifted off of my. By the time I am done on the mat, nothing that was bothering me is important anymore. The friends I have made here make me feel good about me ALL the time. Thank you UMAC

When I think of UMAC there are a few words that come my mind immediately. Those words are family, strength, and love. These three words represent how I feel when I step onto the mat with my daughter and husband. No other place I know allows us to unite as a family, as we grow in strength and walk out encapsulated in love for UMAC and for each other. This experience is none other than priceless.

I could not be happier with our experience with UMAC! The fantastic instructors are such incredible people and great role models for my 8 year old son. Since we started about 2 months ago I have seen improvement in my sons focus and listening skills which had been an issue. Love it!

I have to call this family of martial arts masters, "The Incredibles." I've watched them consistently grow in knowledge, skill ,teaching ability and love for the members of their school. They are always looking for better ways to improve their members lives and experience at their school. But the best proof of their amazing super powers are the incredible joy in the member's heart and eyes, the phenomenal strength and transformation that takes place there, the extraordinary level of high character they produce in the children. This family and school is definitely extraordinary. A great place to come to for developing your child's or your own super powers.

Black Belt – The Meaning

Black belt is considered the beginning of being a true Martial Artist.

The black belt test is considered an invitation into an ancient and higher level of inheritors and practitioners that go back hundreds of years.

Some believe thousands of years. After your black belt test you become the MUSA (an ancient term used for warrior Martial Artist).

The beginning stage is full of challenges.

Completing your black belt test is like just completing law or or medical school.

Now its time to be what you have worked for and your first year is an entire test of its own.

Just coming out of law school or medical school doesnt make you a good lawyer or a good doctor.

Even if you have lots of talent, you will still need to do the work and the time to become good and eventually be great.

The black belt also means that you are a representative of your school, your system of Martial Arts, the Martial Arts community as a whole and most of all, your master.

B eyond your belief in your limitations lies your freedom

L eadership is an honor and a duty

A persons worth is only as great as their belief in themselves and their service to others

C ommitment is the cornerstone and the strength of the black belt

K nowing what is right and doing it separates the

extraordinary from the ordinary

From Grand Master David Herbert
