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!

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!

Do you want to learn how to

defend yourself in all situations?

You feel vulnerable and want to defend yourself and your family.

You want an intense workout that builds muscle and increases dexterity.

You want the self-esteem boost that comes with knowing you can fight.

The dangers of the world are endless

Luckily there is a comprehensive solution…

Learning to defend yourself is about more than simply wielding a weapon. The truth is that amateurs who have weapons end up getting hurt with them more often than predators do – and that’s a real problem. There’s no point in arming yourself if you’re not also in the right condition to be able to act if you or someone you love is threatened.

Women’s Self-Defense is popular because it takes self-defense and turns it into an art form.

you will grow with every class!

Women’s Self-Defense teaches you how to defend yourself by building on your body’s natural reactions to being attacked and giving you the tools – and the strength – to disarm and defeat your opponents. As you train, you’ll build stamina and hone your reflexes until you are a fighting machine.

Defend Yourself in Any Situation

Nobody wants to be the victim of a crime, and yet it happens to people every day. The best way to avoid being harmed is to know how to defend yourself.

Women’s Self-Defense training emphasizes teaching students how to react in real-life situations. It’s not theoretical – it’s practical and effective.

You won’t have to worry about figuring out how to translate your Women’s Self-Defense training outside of the dojo, because our instructors will help you do it.

Women’s Self-Defense is a Killer Workout

It can be hard to get a great workout without someone to push you. If you want to be a total badass, the treadmill isn’t going to get you there.

Women’s Self-Defense is intense...but FUN! Repetitive kicking and punching burn a ton of calories, and testing to move up a level requires mental and physical toughness. You’ll use every muscle.

Whether you want to lose weight or just get in the best physical shape of your life, Women’s Self-Defense can help you do it.

Practical Self-Defense at its Best

One of the hardest things about learning self-defense is overcoming your natural instincts to learn new moves.

Women’s Self-Defense works with those instincts – such as bringing your hands up to protect your face – and turns them into powerful moves that allow you to defend yourself and drive attackers away.

You’ll learn to use the tools you have and combine them with traditional martial arts and other forms of fighting.

Relieve Stress and Anxiety

We all have to deal with stress and anxiety in our lives – from work, family, and everything else. You need to have a healthy outlet for it to stay healthy.

Women’s Self-Defense banishes stress by burning it off. When you’re working out, you need to give over your body and mind to the process. There’s no room for worrying.

By the time you’re done working out, you’ll be flooded with endorphins and feeling a serious sense of accomplishment – and your stress will be under control.
