ACADEMY

Union Martial Arts was founded in 2013 by Maestro Mark Anastacio. Once four walls and mats, the academy has become a home away from home for many. Though we celebrate producing national champions, our commitment is to first hold our students' development at the highest level. We constantly improve our curriculum to ensure every member can achieve and perform at their highest potential. We believe as teachers, we are responsible for the everlasting growth of every member that walks through our doors. Our qualified instructors understand that martial arts is intended for all ages and all levels of experience and so we've created programs that have been proven to work best for every type of martial artist out there.

What makes our academy different is our commitment to our students. We invest our time into getting to know each student in every program to give them the best martial arts experience possible.
