WE LOVE UNION MARTIAL ARTS!!! Coach Nolan and Coach Kon are AMAZING teachers and the facility itself is AWESOME! My son is in Beginner Kickboxing, and he truly loves it and has grown SO MUCH in his ability to focus, his self-confidence and strength! Watching the classes as a parent, I'm so impressed by how much Coach Nolan and Coach Kon teach the kids - they are learning true martial arts skills, growing their fitness, speed and strength! They teach their students discipline, focus, how to work hard and try their best no matter what! They also bring a fun, focused spirit to each class, which is so important with kids (and with adults too 🙂 ) I would give them 10 starts if I could!!!

The patience, care and dedication Coach Nolan & Coach Khan have for their students is phenomenal!! The confidence my son has gained since starting with this gym is amazing to see. My husband and I cannot thank them enough and I would highly recommend this gym to any family!
Practical kickboxing and bjj (as opposed to sport) - excellent for workout and learning

Amazing place.karate feels unique and is so much fun to learn.both coach kon and Chris are very kind to everyone and help everyone to achieve success and great achievements in your current and future life. They are well organized and prepared each class and are very well experienced and help each individual to yet someday be experienced like them someday.after moving to union from a diffrent dojo I started to calm myself down and relax more with Chris and kon. They are very chill and with the flow and never rush into anything if it is sparring , jujitsu, or anything that doesn’t fit your needs. This place is definitely recommended and I appreciate everything they have done for me.
