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!

Alex MacLellan

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!

Here’s what martial artists do get better at their craft – Professor Hammer & Ethan Major | OAMA Podcast | BJJ

The 17-year-old phenom🏋️‍♂️

If you haven’t seen Ethan Major in action, you are missing out!

He is a top BJJ athlete who has competed in competitions all over Ontario and in the U.S. in Las Vegas and Orlando. He rivals adults twice his size and is always up for a match.

Ethan has been recognized by companies and is sponsored by brands like Flow Alkaline Spring Water, Jits Life Brand, Elevata BJJ, Run2Patty and Diamond Insurance Group.

He didn’t always have the confidence he shows on the mats. Ethan faced bullies in school when he was younger and his parents signed him up for martial arts at age 11 as a way for him to increase his confidence and self-esteem. Now, not only does he compete on stage in front of audiences, but he also teaches OAMA’s children’s programs and is a mentor to many.

When asked what he is doing now, Ethan said “I am trying my best to stay focused on training.” He is currently in Orlando, Florida training with some of the best athletes for upcoming tournaments in the next 3 weeks.

Watch the podcast interview to get to know Ethan better and to learn what he does to keep on top. Professor Hammer and Ethan discuss some of the tools they use in training sessions with black belts from around the world, and ones they use with students at OAMA. A martial artist is always learning and always trying to better themselves.

Make sure you follow us on Facebook and Instagram where we will post updates on Ethan’s upcoming competitions.
