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.

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!

Do you want to become

the best version of yourself?

You need a way to combat stress and anxiety.

You want a workout that will burn a ton of calories and help you lose weight.

You’re worried about losing flexibility and strength as you age.

Ever feel in a rut from the same old workouts at the gym?

Luckily there is a comprehensive solution…

There are plenty of workouts you could try, but it can be difficult choosing the one that’s going to give you the greatest health benefits and best results. If you want to lose weight, you’ll also want to choose a workout that will help you burn a large number of calories and tone your muscles at the same time.

The workout you choose should do everything you want it to do – from toning your muscles to improving your cardiovascular health and reducing stress.

you will grow with every class!

Muay Thai combines the discipline and focus of martial arts with an intense, body-toning workout that can help you lose weight, improve your cardiovascular health, and minimize your stress and anxiety.

Get the Results You Want from Your Workouts

We all have times when we fall into a workout rut. We go to the gym, but we aren’t getting the same results we used to see.

One problem may be that you’re doing a workout that doesn’t challenge your entire body. Muay Thai workouts require students to use every major muscle group – and that means it delivers a great workout every time.

In addition to providing an intense workout, Muay Thai builds muscles and tones your entire body. It’s the workout you’ve been looking for.

Muay Thai Burn Calories and Fat

The secret to losing weight is finding a way to burn more calories each day than you take in. For most people, that means getting regular exercise to burn some of what they eat.

A single Muay Thai workout can burn as much as a thousand calories. That means that your body will easily burn more calories than you take in, leading to a net loss of weight.

And, Muay Thai increases muscle mass. Since muscle burns more calories than fat does, regular Muay Thai workouts can boost your metabolism, making it easy to lose weight.

Maintain Flexibility and Strength As You Age

TAs people age, they tend to lose flexibility in their joints and may find that they lose strength as well. Experiencing a physical decline can limit your ability to do the things you love.

People who practice Muay Thai reinforce their body’s strength and flexibility with each workout. By emphasizing core strength and overall fitness, Muay Thai can help you combat the aging process.

Just as importantly, Muay Thai is a low impact workout that uses your body’s weight to tone your muscles. People of all fitness levels and ages can benefit from Muay Thai.

Muay Thai Banishes Stress and Anxiety

Stress is a part of modern life. It can have a negative impact on your physical, emotional, and mental health if you don’t find ways to minimize it.

Working out regularly releases feel-good hormones called endorphins. Muay Thai workouts will help you maintain the proper hormonal balance so you can cope with stress as it arises.

At the same time, Muay Thai can also make you feel better about yourself and your body, which contributes to good mental health and makes it less likely that stress will affect you.
