My daughter and I belong to an affiliate club of OAMA. One of the best decision of our lives was joining the club....it has transformed our lives. Being a part of OAMA and WCMA is like being a part of a much larger family...it's our second home. The instructors are amazing; they truly care about your goals. Love it, love it, LOVE it!!

My kids started training at the Ottawa Academy of Martial Arts after meeting Sensei Hache at a Birthday Party. After watching them train for a year I decided to try it myself, although I had not every done a martial art before. Both my kids and I have grown enormously with the help of the teachers and the other students, physically, socially and emotionally.

Fantastic academy!!! Professor Pat and Professor Hammer are the best! They run a very professional program with technical instruction and safe training environment. It's been a great pleasure to train and learn from them.

I've been a member here for the past 9 months and cannot say enough good things about OAMA. The instructors are world-class and their dedication to the club is unreal. There's such a great vibe here, the members you roll with become family and you help each other advance and improve. It's such a humbling experience and I highly suggest it for everyone; kids to seniors and everything in between. They offer a free week for anyone that wants to try it out and it's a great way to see how you like it. Everyone is friendly and it makes it so easy to jump in and have fun. If you're considering it, don't think any longer, just stop by!

I've been training here since January and I don't see myself changing schools anytime soon. I'm hooked. The instructors are full time professionals in their disciplines, and they are all very approachable and will make time for students. They always emphasize the students are a team. We are all there to support each other and challenge our training partners to raise their levels! Many of the students compete regularly in regional, national, and international tournaments. The quality of the student body is high. When I attend class I feel like I'm learning from people who are professionals at what they do, which is literally true for some. Everyone who trains and teaches here follows a tone of respect too. I hope to get many years of training here!

Announcing…OAMA Comp Team at it again!

Coach Jo Maisonneuve is in Texas this Saturday, Feb 27th, at Submissions on the Shore in a 3 vs 3, 16 team tournament.

Submissions on the Shore is the first Jiu-Jitsu promoter of its kind in North America, focusing on women-only tournaments. Their purpose is to encourage more women and youth to pursue jiu-jitsu and give them opportunities as is afforded to their male counterparts.

They were recently featured in a MMA News article, where Cortney Danielle Carlson, one of Subs on the Shore’s creators, said, “As a woman myself, I can only hope that more organizations start hosting more female cards so that all of these talented women can showcase their skills on a variety of stages.”

This will be their 13th all-female tournament.

Jo has participated in many of these tournaments and says it’s one of her favourite ones. The camaraderie amongst the competitors and the organizers is reminiscent of a family. They cheer each other on, even if they’re competing against one another.

This goes to show that martial arts are a team and family sport. And OAMA’s motto of “organized like a team, fight like a family” rings true.

If you would like to watch one of Jo’s fights at Subs on the Shore, the video of her first match in California last year has reached over 40,ooo views on YouTube! You can watch the match here.⁣

Thank You to all OAMA members who have helped Jo prepare for this competition, and to Jo’s sponsors, Anytime Fitness Carling Ave and Integrated Touch Physiotherapy, for all your support.
