Today there is a trend in the martial arts toward mixed arts, that is, wrestling has been added to the traditional stand-up arts, but it seems as though the arts have lost the positiveness that they always have conveyed! Here at UMAA we believe the art should give you strength, balance, coordination, fitness, and a positive self-attitude.
We haven’t changed the art to comply with a fad, it is the original art, started 527 AD in China. It incorporates five main animals as part of fighting techniques. The tiger, leopard, crane, snake, and dragon techniques allow you to overcome any opponent. It’s similar to the game “rocks, paper, and scissors”, in that if someone large is coming directly at you, he may be considered the tiger. You will know from your studies how to defend against this with crane, snake and leopard techniques!
You’ll get in great shape while learning self-defense and you’ll enjoy it!
