Time passes quickly for parents while they watch their children grow up. Parents work hard to make the best decisions for their children while they are young. Parents want to provide the lessons necessary to help them grow to be strong, healthy and successful as adults. The Ottawa Academy of Martial Arts is a pillar in the Ottawa community and has been supporting families by teaching children martial arts for nearly 20 years. The amazing thing about martial arts is that while children work towards earning their black belt they learn many great life lessons along the way and develop the character needed to face their fears, danger, challenges that lie ahead. The staff team at OAMA loves practicing martial arts and sharing their passion with the students. It brings the staff team great feelings of purpose watching the children accomplish goals and milestones along the path in martial arts.
