My 12 year old son and I have been attending classes at this studio for a little over 3 months and we are thoroughly impressed. We don’t have experience doing kickboxing or jiu jitsu and were very nervous to try something new. Every class we leave inspired having learned new techniques, burned a lot of calories, and met incredibly kind people. Both Coaches (Nolan and Kon) are amazing! They are patient and abundantly respectful. For those of you wanting to get fit or learn some sort of self defense, I highly recommend this studio.

Although we were not one of the first when the school opened, since September 1, 2022, when we started, we feel a great connection full of discipline, respect, transparency, professionalism, dedication and a lot of affection from the coaches Nolan and Kon, all those emotions are still intact Since that first time we went and we felt like family! My children, Enmanuel, Manuela, Diego, my wife Vanessa and my person Manuel Garcia feel proud and highly grateful to you! Union Martial Arts! Blessings to you!

My husband has been coming here for a while and absolutely LOVES IT. The place is immaculate, the atmosphere and environment is so welcoming and everyone is so friendly ! No judgements here. I attended my first beginner kick boxing class this past weekend and loved it! Not only was it so much fun but I got a great workout and felt so good afterwards. Coach Nolan is the best !!!! I am usually very intimidated at trying new things and will shy away but everyone made me feel very welcome and I can’t appreciate that enough ! Will definitely be back :) I cannot recommend this place enough for anyone looking to get into kickboxing or any of the other classes they offer !!!

Coach Nolan went above and beyond to accommodate our group as we took our first class! He welcomed us with the BEST energy and made sure we were all geared up! The gym is absolutely immaculate. You can tell he takes great pride in his gym and that he’s very passionate about what he does! He explained and demonstrated everything, which is super helpful for our first time! We had a fantastic workout! Thanks again, Coach!
