Brampton Martial Arts

UNION MARTIAL ARTS 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 our community. We developed our curriculum to ensure every member can achieve and perform at their highest potential. Our team is proudly responsible for building confidence. Our world class instructors manifest our goals by leading our students through confidence, discipline, self-defence, honour and integrity

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.
