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!

The interview you’ve been waiting for! And Recap of IBJJF American Nationals & Submissions on the Shore

Fighting on both coasts against the best of the best in the world, OAMA’s instructors Eric Nadon, Justin Primrose, Jo Maissonneuve and Kyle Spanton represented OAMA proudly.

Jo won her match with incredible grappling skills in California at Submissions the Shore.

In Texas, at the IBJJF American Nationals, Eric showed amazing resilience and strength in his fight. Justin beat a multiple time world champion and walked away with a bronze medal. And Kyle quickly won his first match with an impressive arm bar.

They continue to show us the value in challenging ourselves and testing our skills, both on and off the mats.

We are grateful for our members and students for helping them get ready for the competition. Thanks to your daily effort and support, you give the instructors the confidence to go up against the best in the world.

Our students are the reason why OAMA’s staff team is committed to competition and their own improvement. They want to get better as martial artists so that they can give the best to our students, who inspire their actions daily and help them strive for better.

Because of our students, our instructors continue to work hard towards their goals, pushing themselves to the limits, always growing and testing their skills.

With the support of the whole team, anything is possible!
