UMAC 18th Anniversary!
Wednesday June 5th – it’s hard to believe that much time has passed. Sifu & I would like to thank all our students and family members for their support.

To celebrate our anniversary, we have a great offer for you to join our family martial arts program and this offer is good for a limited time only. We have always wanted to see family’s training together and that is the reason why we are now encouraging a 2nd family member to participate.

During the months of May & June, we will cover the cost of your first month’s tuition and the cost of your uniform when you enroll in our Basic Program. Also, once a 2nd family member joins if you have any other children that are not currently enrolled in our program, they will be able to attend the children’s class at no additional cost. The only thing you would need to purchase is their uniform.

Please call me to schedule a time to try a free lesson at (978) 762-0454
