Begin the adventure of self-discovery, empowerment,
and unlimited potential while getting in great shape!
Calling all Union parents! Click now to discover the martial arts class that kids love because it's so fun... and parents love it because their children become so much more focused and respectful.
We’re so happy to share our passion for martial arts with you. For some, our Union Martial Arts school might just seem like a place to get fit and learn self-defense... but to us it’s so much more.
While you get into the absolute best shape of your life, some other “subtle” changes happen as well. These changes are mind blowing to our new students. When you train in our programs, your life will never be the same again...in a really good way!
Here are a handful of those life-changing benefits students experience…
Learning new skills and tasks is difficult. One of the first things both children AND adults notice when training is that they don’t get to have super-star kung fu movie style moves without some serious work. As you dig in, and put yourself to the test mentally and physically, you’ll realize something…
You’ll realize that through all of your hard work, by listening to your instructors, and showing up for yourself - you are incredibly capable of smashing your goals. This sense of achievement gives our students HUGE boosts in confidence.
As you learn striking, self-defense moves, or even learn how to do a push up for the first time you’ll proudly pat yourself on the back and feel great about the person you’re becoming. We love to see this trait develop in our students.
Since the techniques are new, they require your full attention. As you concentrate hard on listening to the instructor, following along with what they taught you, and then remembering what you learned when you get home...
...the intense concentration starts to naturally flow. It pours into all other areas of your life including work, school, and even other activities and sports you do for fun.
Adults are able to focus better at work, reaching goals easier while kids report doing better in school all around.
Our classes are a blast and based on functional fitness. We use positive reinforcement and high fives instead of military style yelling and endless hours on a treadmill.
This means that each of our classes is loaded with challenging, fun exercises designed to enhance your self-defense skills. Dynamic striking, high intensity intervals of cardio training, and movements that mimic how the human body should move are our focus.
Don’t worry if you feel as though you won’t be able to keep up. We work with all levels from total beginner to pro athlete. And you know what...they all sweat the same at the end of our workouts!
We're a tight-knit group here. And our members and instructors are all about support and friendship. We provide the kind of environment that fosters friendship, encouragement, and motivation.
Your classmates will be genuinely happy for you when you master your new tasks because they know how hard you have to work for it. Now extend that mentality into a wide network of martial artists, practicing and struggling, just like you.
There's a reason Martial Artists typically greet each other as "brother" or "sister" and it's truly powerful to see that realization sink in for new students.
You’ll have an absolute blast in class! Sure, sometimes things will be tough and training can get intense. But we like to break up the intense focus and concentration with lots of laughs, encouragement, and light-hearted humor.
Laughing and smiles are part of every class!

You can call our Union kids martial arts classes "family classes" because the parents of our students love these classes as much as their kids. And why not when the end-result is discipline and great sense of respect for kids of all ages! We focus on a well-rounded student; well behaved everywhere and a good performer in school.
Kids love our martial arts classes because we blend fun activities and games, and still dedicate pure focus time to learn new techniques while perfecting the old ones.
Our Union Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) classes teach you how to handle yourself. No matter what your size is….or the size of your opponent!
Wrestling techniques, body leverage, and joint locking will show you how to level the playing field. Heart pumping cardio & circuit drills ensure you have what it takes to outlast any attack, better any opponent, or simply get in the best shape of your life! Powerful grappling and submission techniques will tone your body while friendly instructors guide you to successes.
