Since our opening in 1981, our mission at Attitude First Martial Arts Academy is to encourage kids and adults alike to develop confidence, courage, and commitment to defend themselves, their hopes, and their dreams. We have developed and implemented programs that directly address a person’s self-esteem, confidence, and decision-making skills using the martial arts as our basis.

Attitude First Martial Arts bases all of our instruction around the 3 major components of the Universal Martial Art Sciences (UMAS):
- Five core principles of Awareness, Attitude, Logic, Margin, and Simplicity.
- Strategies to enable quick, efficient and effective access to the students talents to solve the global question of “How will I maximize my opportunities and minimize my opponents’ to protect myself?”
- Basics that are supported by the 5 master keys of hammer, whip, thrust, launch and neutral that allows every student to refine their attributes, abilities, skills, and tactics.
