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.

The Ottawa Academy of Martial Arts is a pillar of the Ottawa community! For years they have been changing people's lives and supporting the community! You should want your children to experience Professor Matt Hache and his unlimited passion for Martial Arts!

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!

Aaron Kruger started martial arts to break the cycle he was in. He didn’t like the path he was on – depressed, low confidence, no motivation. He wanted more and he found it when his friend introduced him to martial arts.
โฃ
Get to know Aaron on this week’s Meet the Team. He is a Muay Thai instructor, athlete, and leader.

Watch the full interview here.

When Aaron saw his friend gain confidence and discipline, he knew that’s what he was missing in his life. He looked up martial arts schools and found OAMA.

“I signed up the first day. I saw the role models around the gym and I looked up to them. Now, I’m a different person.”

Aaron loves teaching and is excited to motivate others the same way he was and to help them be more confident and become leaders themselves.

Have you seen Aaron in action?

With over 10 fights under his belt, you can watch fight videos of his matches on OAMA’s YouTube channel by clicking here.

He’s explosive! It’s hard to believe he’s only been doing martial arts for 3 years!

Our OAMA staff team is incredible!

They are all knowledgeable, helpful, easy to talk to, and passionate about martial arts. They love what they do and you can tell.
