We are a United Group of Combat Martial Artists who have come together to form an Alliance to continue the growth in traditional combat martial arts. The instructors of UCMAA have one goal in mind. To share what we have learned and to train our students to be better than we are. 

Our Goals

  • Encourage, regulate, and support training in traditional martial arts.
  • Promote, encourage, and support public awareness of and participation in self-defense training.
  • Encourage, regulate, and support competition on the regional and national levels.

Description of Our Arts

Jujutsu – The “Gentle Art” of the Samurai is a comprehensive art. Its techniques include blocking, striking, kicking, joint locks, chokes, body contact throws, and joint lock throws.

Karate – An Okinawan art with emphasis on striking and kicking. Kata (forms) training, in tandem with bunkai (interpretation of techniques in a form), provides the practitioner with insights into self-defense. Techniques include joint locks and throws.

Judo – The “Gentle Way” is an art derived from Jujutsu. It emphasizes throwing, grappling, and locking techniques.

Kempojutsu – A Japanese art which emphasizes punching, striking, and kicking, but also utilizes grappling, joint locks, and throws.

Iaijutsu – A Japanese sword art, literally the “Art of Presence in the Moment.” As taught in the UCMAA, it involves both Kenjutsu (Art of the Sword) and Batto-Ho (Methods of rapidly drawing the Sword). It is the art of being aware and able to respond quickly to an attack.

Kobujutsu – The “Art of Weapons.” It involves training with and mastering weapons of Okinawa, such as tonfa, sai, nunchaku, and eku (boat oar), as well as training with and mastering weapons of Japan, including rokushaku bo (six foot staff), hanbo (three foot staff), yari (spear), naginata (halberd).

Aikijujutsu – A Jujutsu art which emphasizes the principle of Aiki, that is, harmonizing one's energy with an opponent. Emphasis is placed on joint locks and throws.

Toide – The Okinawan art of joint locking and throwing techniques. Technically, Toide is similar to Japanese Jujutsu, however, the methods of entry into techniques differs greatly due to the influence of its sister art, Karate.
