NWMA training center is dedicated to bringing you the most cutting edge and practical martial arts and fitness training. People fall in love with our programs from day one, and we are sure you will too! 


Here's a bit about why that happens…


Dedication

Our expert martial arts staff is extremely, extremely, extremely dedicated to giving you the best possible experience you could ask for. 


They're there for every question you need answered... every boost of motivation when challenges arise... and to instill in you the wisdom that's been passed down through martial arts for thousands of years. Our instructors care. They're here for you 110%.


It's more than kicks and punches

On the surface, our Eugene martial arts program might seem like learning how to defend yourself and your loved ones. In truth, martial arts is so much more. Through the effort, dedication, and practice you put into every class…


... every area of your life will see improvement. You'll gain focus, determination and confidence that will seep into everything you do. Whether it's at work, at home, or anywhere else - you'll be changed for life.


Martial arts is just as much about work on who we are inside as it is about the individual techniques and skills. With our program, you'll reap the full benefit of this ancient wisdom.


Fun

And last but not least, we know how to have fun! After all, too much work is simply off-putting. When an activity is all serious focus and hard work, it's easy to burn out. 


Every class is filled with smiles and laughter. You'll make friends, enjoy your time, and walk away happier than when you came.
