UMA Course Categories

The University of Martial Arts has chosen to set up our courses under the following categories. We do not offer courses in all these styles, but we hope to in the future.

  1. Striking and Stand-Up: Styles focusing on striking or stand-up martial arts that train for defense while standing using punches, kicks, knees, elbows and blocks.
  2. Throwing and Takedown: Styles focusing on throwing or takedown martial arts which start from a standing position and then use takedowns and throws to put the opponent on the ground.
  3. Grappling and Ground Fighting: Styles focusing on ground training where a dominant position is achieved or a submission hold ends the fight.
  4. Traditional and Other Weapons: Styles focusing on the use of traditional and non traditional weapons.

We are not offering courses in all of the following styles, but we’d like to. The information below is for your information only.
