Celebrating 35th Anniversary in Martial Arts

I began martial arts in October 1981. To celebrate my 35 years in martial arts, on the 1st class of October I gave all my students in attendance their money back and announced they will train for free the entire month. A way of saying thanks to everyone for the years of support and dedication. 

* * In this video I list many of my esteemed teachers Charles Wixson, Teruo Hayashi, Michael Cain, Marsha McKenzie, Jerry Jenkins, Jerry Ferguson, Linda Marquardt, Teruo Chinen, Kenzo Mabuni, Mark Glaser, Jeremy Corbell,Michael Frison, Steve Lang, James Ferguson, Chris Petrilli, Frank Shamrock, Paul Vunak, Tony Blauer, -above all, Tom Weissmuller! 

* * * I forgot in the video to mention Bob Anderson. He let me train for the summer at his school in Ferndale over a decade ago and was so cool and generous -and tough as nails.

Testimonial

I was with UMA for about a year while I lived in the area. I’d had about 1 year or so of experience prior to joining. I loved that the classes involved people of all fighting skills and that you’re training with all different sizes and ages. It makes for a very well-rounded training experience. Rob takes extra time with newer individuals to help you get on track with the current students. I felt at home from day 1! I wish that more gyms would utilize this setting. You have a structured class plan, a friendly and professional environment that is set up by a very knowledgeable and passionate instructor. Rob even took time during class when learning new moves to show me how it would be relevant from a police officer perspective. I have and continue to recommend this class to just about anyone in that area that has mentioned having an interest in martial arts. If you’re into fitness, want to learn self-defense, or have a higher risk job where continuing to hone your defensive tactics is absolutely necessary, UMA is a perfect choice.
