Universal Martial Arts Centers has been serving the community of Rancho Cucamonga and the surrounding area since 1992. The atmosphere at UMAC is one of harmony and respect. Students are taught that the best way to gain respect is to first give respect.
In the adult classes, we focus on practical, effective self defense, combined with the history of our roots in the martial arts. This type of training establishes a higher sense of self-confidence, and the ability to stand courageously for one's beliefs, and values, while having fun at the same time. We promote a safe, fun, enthusiastic, and family oriented environment.
