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!

How Can Martial Arts Benefit You & Your Family?

A year ago our world was turned upside down.

Families are dealing with social isolation. And children are being crushed by it. Many are getting used to isolating and it is making them more vulnerable to bullying and not being included.

If you’re fighting an uphill battle, martial arts can help.

In our children’s programs, we teach not only discipline but also self-worth and overcoming bullying. We concentrate on giving children the tools, knowledge, and strategies so they understand they are enough and they are great children. And we focus on what makes them unique.

Martial arts is the number one way to overcome bullying, low self-esteem, and low self-confidence.

All OAMA’s kids’ instructors overcame bullying or low self-esteem with martial arts. They followed our path of martial artists to athletes to instructors.

Ethan Major is one of them. He defeated it through the lessons he learned on the mats. And now he is one of the top athletes in his age group in North America!

You can learn about his journey by watching his podcast with Professor Hammer on OAMA’s YouTube channel. There are also podcasts with all our instructors, talking about what led them to martial arts.

If you or someone you know is in a similar situation, we can help, please reach out to us. Our main focus is community development. And we want to do everything we can to help you.

Get in touch with us today for more information on our children’s, or adult, programs and how they can help you and your family.
