UKMA was founded in 2009 by Grandmaster RJ Botticello. Since then, he has dedicated his daily life and time to building a school centered around family and community values. Every instructor first entered the school as a student of Grandmaster Botticello, and each one strives to uphold the traditions and values he has passed down. All instructors volunteer their time and teach because they want to teach. We are not a belt factory. Every student earns their rank and puts in their time and dedication to meet each level. Come start you Martial Arts journey with us and you will not be left behind.
Choosing a martial arts school to study at is an serious consideration. Every school offers its own benefits, and you should find the school that's the right fit. We suggest you come in and see how we act with each other, each student and each instructor. We provide a family atmosphere while learning the traditions of TaeKwonDo and Hapkido.
