Dear Future Martial Artist,

If you're interested in finding out how martial arts training can make a grand impact on your own or your child's life, then the information on this webpage just might be exactly what you need to get started.

You may have ended up on this website after searching for some kind of martial arts classes, schools or gyms in Miami. You fall into one or more of these following categories:
  • arrowA mom or dad looking for Martial Arts or Karate training for kids because you heard that martial arts is a great way for kids to learn discipline and self-control.
  • arrowA "mature" or "boomer" adult who's heard that martial arts is a great way for adults to get into fitness and learn self-defence.
  • arrowA female adult who's looking to sign up for Kickboxing Classes because she's learned that aerobics is dead so all those Step Classes and 45-minute walks on the treadmill or around Baptist Hospital are a big waste of money and time!.
  • arrowA male or female adult who's looking for something with a little more substance than the sport martial arts, something a little more well-rounded.

Here' s Who This Kind Of Martial Art Training Is For

You're NOT looking for the school closest to you. Nor are you looking for the last "Johnny-come-lately" warehouse school that just opened up claiming to be the best in town!
Whatever your category, I welcome you to this website.
As you might imagine, being the Chief Instructor of one of the most popular and oldest martial arts schools in Miami (actually one of the oldest Jeet Kune Do schools in the State of Florida), everyday I get lots of phone calls and emails from people just like you who are looking to start martial arts training.
Some are interested in self defense, others are interested in fitness and weight loss, while others are interested in "mixed martial arts" fighting.
There's also another group that wants martial arts training that blends with philosophy and spirituality.

No matter what your interest, I'm about to make you an irresistible offer to test-drive some of the best martial arts training and the best adult, junior Jeet Kune Do classes, Muay Thai classes, Lil' Dragon classes, Filipino Kali classes or Fitness Kickboxing classes available in Miami.

In fact, it is literally impossible for you to EVER get a better offer for any type of martial art training you may invest in during your lifetime.
Because I'm going to let you try out the martial art program of your choice with zero commitment on your part... Now YOU Can Enjoy Any Of Our Beginner Martial Art Or Fitness Programs For One Entire Month (A Full 30 DAYS) Absolutely FREE With No Strings Attached And No Further Commitments!

Look, I know that getting started at a martial art school can be a scary thing. Actually, starting anything new can be scary... And that's why a lot of advertisers try to trick you into buying their products or services by waving that "no commitment, no obligation" flag in front of you.">But I'm not like that. If you seriously have no interest in making a commitment to yourself or your child, then I have no interest in you.
On the other hand, if you can commit to taking the time to check out our Academy and at least take a "test drive", then go ahead and fill out this information box below.
If you've always wanted to know just how martial art training could benefit you and/or your children, then you've come to the right place.
For over 25 years Unified Martial Art Academy, the home of Bruce Lee's Jeet Kune Do in Miami, has provided martial arts lessons for kids and adults who want to get or stay in shape, learn a discipline, learn self-defense or just engage in a healthful activity, good for their mind, body and soul.
Whether your goals for yourself or your children are to learn martial arts for self-confidence, discipline, cardiovascular fitness or "mixed martial arts" fighting, you are sure to find what you want at UMAA.

Rave Reviews from current and former UMAA members
"my insurance lowered my premiums"
"After a few months of Fitness Kickboxing at UMAA, my health improved so much, my cholesterol levels went down so far that the insurance company lowered my premiums. I owe it all to UMAA. With the money I'm saving on insurance I feel like I'm getting my Kickboxing classes for FREE!"

Oscar Camargo

"UMAA is the best.. believe me!"
"I've been Fitness Kickboxing in Miami at UMAA for over 4 years now. They got me in shape for my 2002, 2003 and 2004 calendars. They are the best. Take my word for it!"

Adriana Cataņo

"UMAA introduced me to myself"
"My brother introduced me to UMAA in 1993. It took 2 years before I could join (until I got out of the Army) but after a few weeks with Sifu Dwight, I knew this was what I'd been looking for. UMAA has introduced me to so much... other cultures, people from all walks of life and in a way, to myself."

Garrick Wilson

"My colleagues at UMAA are outstanding teachers and human beings"
"I've been a member of UMAA since November,1992. The first time I saw a group of UMAA students, they were demonstrating at a local gym. I had never seen a martial arts group NOT in karate suits. These guys wore t-shirts with funny looking symbols on them! Cut to 10 years later and I'm the father of 3 beautiful girls; it turns out the gym owners were crooks while my colleagues at UMAA were outstanding teachers and human beings.
At first it was difficult convincing my significant other, but now she knows how important my other (UMAA) family is to me."

Miguel Hernandez

"Classes are empowering, invigorating and encouraging!"
"My office job is mentally challenging but TOO sedentary. I need a physical activity but walking 3 times a week wasn't quite enough. My brother, the Bruce Lee fan, recommended UMAA because he was so impressed with Sifu Dwight's teaching style. I started in Fitness Kickboxing but traveling for work interrupted my classes. Now I'm back taking JKD and I LOVE IT! Sifu Dwight teaches in a relaxed yet deliberate manner, is a man of integrity and a master at his craft. I feel honored to be his student. The UMAA staff has created an environment that is stimulating, courteous, helpful and encouraging. Classes are empowering, invigorating and comfortable. I'm excited to be expanding my horizons in such a great atmosphere."

Deborah Rivera Rodriguez

"I chose UMAA to learn effective, practical self-defense methods"
"As a police officer I have to be prepared for the unexpected. Training can mean the difference between life and death. My skills need to be constantly tested and updated. Most of the tactics I was taught were designed with departmental liability in mind. After many confrontations, I knew that I had to find a school where I could learn effective, practical methods. That's why I chose UMAA."

Joshua de La Milera

"This is definitely the place!"

Jeet Kune Do as taught by Sifu Woods and Sihing Rondono is by far the most practical and effective of the martial arts. It's a no-nonsense, common sense approach to self-defense that not only teaches you techniques and combinations but prides itself in tapping the particular strengths and abilities of the each individual student."Take what is useful, discard what is not, and add that which is especially your own."If you hang around UMAA long enough, this philosophy will eventually permeate through EVERY aspect of your daily life, making it a great place for adults and children alike. My son is also a proud member of UMAA and I've seen his attitude and confidence improve by leaps and bounds in the short time he's been a student of Sifu and Sihing. This is definitely the place!


Joey Torres

"It's an honor to be your student"
For the first time in my life, I feel in control of my own destiny. Your teachings have given me strength, focus, and I have found that I am the person that I always thought I was, a magnificent human being capable of unimaginable expression. You have taught me to strive and continue to develop as a martial artist, friend and a father.
It is a true honor to be your student, and have been shown the way by your example. So I salute you, Sifu Dwight Woods, for you continuing support and contribution to my Jeet Kune Do training, my personal development and achievement.
