We love Ucelo Martial Arts! We enrolled our daughter when she turned 5 in hopes of improving some behavioral issues we were struggling with. Her behavior improved drastically!!!! and we couldn't be prouder of her. Master Abel and Sarahi have left a lasting impression on our daughter, she loves and admires them, and I couldn't be more grateful for them.

This is hands down the best karate school. My daughter has gained so much from practicing martial arts with Master Abel and Miss Sarah. They are both amazingly encouraging and they genuinely care about their students. UMA really is a big family. It's a great place with wonderful people!

Great family oriented environment. Positive attitude from instructors and coaches. Kids enjoy coming to their class and always looking forward to it.

I enjoy their adult Karate and Kickboxing classes as it keeps me active. They even offer Jujitsu beginner classes for those looking into that field.

Areli Chavez

Best martial arts school in Glendale. Both Sarahi and Master Abel treat everyone as family. My kids love going to class and strive to do their best both at home and martial arts class.

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.

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.

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

Do you want to become

the best version of yourself?

You want a workout that will burn a ton of calories, help you loose weight and push yourself athletically

You want to be able to defend yourself in dangerous situations

You need a healthy way to combat stress and anxiety

Ever feel in a rut from the same old workouts at the gym?

Luckily there is a comprehensive solution…

We recognize the flaws and mind-numbing boredom that can come along with some other gym-bound activities. There’s plenty of workouts you could try, but it can be difficult choosing the one that’s going to give you the best results while keeping you challenged and motivated.
The workout you choose should do everything you want it to do – from toning your muscles, improving your cardiovascular health, reducing stress, and keeping you wanting to come back for more.
Here at Ucelo Martial Arts, we have designed classes to work your butt off, and keep your motivation high with a unique curriculum based system that helps individuals of all levels learn and progress.

you will grow with every class!

Kickboxing combines the discipline and focus of martial arts with an intense, body-toning workout that can help you lose weight, improve your cardiovascular health, and minimize your stress and anxiety.

Get the Results You Want from Your Workouts

We all have times when we fall into a workout rut. We go to the gym, but we aren’t getting the same results we used to see.

One problem may be that you’re doing a workout that doesn’t challenge your entire body. Kickboxing workouts require students to use every major muscle group – and that means it delivers a great workout every time.

In addition to providing an intense workout, Kickboxing builds muscles and tones your entire body. It’s the workout you’ve been looking for.

Kickboxing Burn Calories and Fat

If you want to get in the best shape of your life, climbing into a treadmill a few times a week just isn't going to get the job done.

The secret to losing weight is finding a way to burn more calories each day than you take in. For most people, that means getting regular exercise to burn some of what they eat.

A single Kickboxing workout can burn as much as a thousand calories. That means that your body will easily burn more calories than you take in, leading to a net loss of weight.

People who practice Kickboxing reinforce their body's strength and flexibility, and increase muscle mass. Since muscle burns more calories than fat does, regular Kickboxing workouts can boost your metabolism, making it easy to lose weight.

Kickboxing gives you the confidence to defend yourself

Self-defense is as much about training as it is about strength and size. The biggest, beefiest guy in the world can still lose a fight if he's not trained.

Kickboxing uses a large set of self defense techniques, combined to give you the tools you need to defend yourself in any situation.

Whether that be a stranger on the street, the local thugs, or a trespasser in your home, you will be equipped with the skills to effectively keep you and your loved ones out of harm's way.

Kickboxing Banishes Stress and Anxiety

Stress is a part of modern life. It can have a negative impact on your physical, emotional, and mental health if you don’t find ways to minimize it.

Working out regularly releases feel-good hormones called endorphins. Kickboxing workouts will help you maintain the proper hormonal balance so you can cope with stress as it arises.

At the same time, Kickboxing can also make you feel better about yourself and your body, which contributes to good mental health and makes it less likely that stress will affect you.

FAQs

Do I have to be in good shape to study Kickboxing?

No. In fact, Kickboxing is one of the best workouts you can do to get in shape if you’re not happy with your current fitness level. It works your entire body. Over time, you can increase the intensity of your workouts to continue to challenge your body.

Is Kickboxing good for self-defense?

Yes. Kickboxing teaches students to leverage their own body weight as well as their opponent’s weight. Students learn practical moves that are ideal for self-defense – and Kickboxing also builds good reflexes, which are essential in a fight.

Will Kickboxing workouts help me lose weight?

Yes. However, it is important to combine Kickboxing with a healthy diet and lifestyle if you want your body to be lean and strong. Kickboxing burns a lot of calories but you may have problems if you eat a diet high in sugar and processed foods.

Is Kickboxing dangerous?

Kickboxing is not dangerous for beginners, especially if you wear the proper equipment. If you choose to compete, there is some risk of injury. Here again, though, proper protection can help you minimize injuries in the ring.
