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!

#tbt Kru Amy represents Team Canada in East vs. West Battle Series

Did you know Kru Amy was selected to represent Canada against China in the East vs. West WLF Battle Series?

She was the only female fight of the night and definitely did not disappoint! ⚔️💪

This event was a high production event in Markham in December 2019, in front of a sold-out crowd and streamed live to audiences around the world.

Kru Amy trained extensively for months. Both fighters put on a killer display of thai boxing. Her opponent was tough and did a great job of keeping a tight game, but Amy’s elbows were no match. Especially that high kick!

Recently, Kru Amy sat down with Professor Hammer and Coach Aaron to do a breakdown of the fight. Watch to get a behind the scenes look at what happened leading up to and during the event. It was definitely a unique experience! Click here to see why.

It is always amazing to see one of OAMA’s instructor’s in action and killing it with persistent engagement and combo’s. Not only are our instructor’s great teachers, but they are also professional athletes who are dedicated to their own growth and development, always putting themselves to the test.

Kru Amy’s win was a win for the whole team, training and sparring with team members months before and having talented coaches, Kru Ash, Kru Ashley and Professor Hammer, in her corner. It’s great to see everyone come together to support each other. Organized like a team, fighting like a family!

Watch the full fight breakdown here!

We have more fight review video’s, similar to this one, on OAMA’s YouTube channel. Make sure you are subscribed so you get notified as soon as they are posted. You don’t want to miss out!
