My 10 year old son kept getting in trouble at school. Over and over, the disciplinary actions became tougher and tougher. It wasn't working. Deciding I didn't like the direction of my son's behavior, I knew he needed direction. He needed to better understand the concepts of courtesy, self-control, and respect. He also had too much energy, and too much free time. He needed an activity, and needed to learn lessons you just can't find in normal sports. He needed someone who would be tough on him, who would wear him out. I decided to enroll him in martial arts. I wasn't expecting my son to love it as much as he does. He took to martial arts like it was something he'd been missing his entire life. And I wasn't prepared for the results. His behavior has drastically improved at home, at school or anywhere he goes. i feel that this wouldn't have been possible without the help of Master Abel and Sarah Ucelo. These people aren't just trying to teach kids how to kick butt, they're helping to mold future leaders. They're influencing kids to better themselves, their surroundings and everyone around them. To better their communities. Their school has a comfortable, local feel. There are no bullies, this isn't Cobra Kai. They're here to make a difference, and from what I've seen, they've already succeeded. I found Ucelo Martial Arts by chance. Pulling up a quick search, I chose the nearest school. I wasn't expecting to find the best. 10 Gold Stars for UMA.
My son started last month at 6 years old and right away he was learning and challenging himself to continuously do better and better. He LOVES UMA. He is bummed on our off days he wants to do karate every day! His focus, strength, and respect has improved tremendously even in this short about of time. Master Ucelo does a wonderful job explaining the respect is to be carried into home as well as in class. My son use to have difficulties listening and obeying the first time and we honestly do not struggle with that anymore. The instructors are wonderful and patient. I would recommend Ucelo MA to everyone.
The best karate instructors in town! My daughter has been at UMA for almost 5 years and my son recently joined, both my kids enjoy the class very much! UMA has helped both kids learn about self defense, self confidence and respect. The instructors are experienced and patient with the kids, always pushing them to do better and be the best they can be. UMA has become family to us, we could not be more thankful for finding such wonderful karate school for our children!
I’m so happy we found UMA my oldest son who is 5 yrs old (started at 4) was having a super hard time focusing and behaving well in school and now thanks to a wonderful supportive team at UMA he is reading and right on track for kindergarten in the fall! I myself have recently joined kickboxing and I feel like they are so supportive and patient with me, I feel so much better about myself and have so much more energy! My youngest son will be joining the karate team in May when he turns four and we are so excited! Thank you team UMA!!!!!
I would recommend this Dojo in Glendale in a heart beat! I believe martial arts is what continues to keep our family strong, healthy and humble. This is a great school and trust me when I say that Ucelo is a legitimate dojo and they're passionate about teaching their students. My daughter is very blessed to be part of such a great team and school! Also they have a great Kickboxing program for myself and I walk out each time feeling confident, accomplished and super sweaty!
My daughter loves Ucelo Martial Arts. Her confidence, focus and physical strength have greatly increased. Not only does she learn martial art skills, Master Abel teaches respect, integrity and responsibility. If your child can only do one activity, chose this. You will not be disappointed.
The best karate school there is! Everyone is so friendly and master Abel is the best! Bring you kids here you won't regret it!!
La mejor escuela con el mejor instructor abel! Todos son amables y sin fácil de enseñar! Traigan a sus hijos aquí es la mejor!
This place is great, both of my kids love coming every week, they have learned discipline, confidence, and the meaning of community. Master Abel has been a positive figure in their lives, we plan on being a part of UMA family for a long time.
My son Adrian had his free trial class last Saturday. He started his 1st actual class in Little Tigers today and he enjoyed very much! I can't wait to keep going with this and see where it takes us.
Love this school. Everyone is very nice, patient, and excellent at teaching the moves and understand the meaning of it. Everyone is treated equal. Feels like we are all a big family. I would definitely recommend this school. 5 Stars for sure.
Best place ever! I would recommend this to anybody! This is the best karate school I've ever trained with. I started out when I was 5 and a half, and now I'm a black belt thanks to them, I've been doing this for 11 yrs now. They taught me that it isn't a competition with other people, it's a competition with yourself. Best school ever
Great Martial Arts Masters and great training. My niece is a black belt now and my daughter is working her way to reach that goal. And now my son wants to join :) Great sport to keep the kids and teenagers out of trouble.
Whether you are looking for an art,self defense,a discipline,UMA is the right place to be,the school is a place with a safe family oriented atmosphere where you will always find respect and discipline within classes.
