Fort Washington United

Leading the way in virtual/personal tutoring and real martial arts.


Our mission at Fort Washington United is to provide the highest quality academic tutoring and martial arts in the Maryland and D.C. metro area. With the restrictions due to COVID-19, it is more important than ever that quality one on one tutoring in school subjects such as math, science, and reading comprehension be available to anyone who needs it. In addition to virtual tutoring, we are going to offer in-person tutoring, this fall, at our Fort Washington location. Besides academics, FWU offers challenging martial arts for kids and adults. Whether you are looking for self-defense for yourself or your kids, FWU is the place to be. We offer boxing/ kickboxing, submission grappling, and traditional Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. During COVID we are offering both night classes for adults and kids and many virtual one-on-one martial arts classes as well

"My son goes to UMAA to their after school program. The coach never misses a day to update us that my son got picked from school, in the van and when they’re in school. We celebrated my son’s 11th birthday at UMAA and the theme was Nerf Blast. The party was a “BLAST” all kids had a great time and the staffs did a “BLAST” job! I highly recommend this school. Not only they love what they do, but they care the well being of their students."

"Having a martial arts background myself, I knew what I was looking for in a program for my grandkids. After checking out other local (and not so local) venues, I stopped when I observed a kids's class. Coaches Nelson and Steve were outstanding in their craft, and more importantly to me, how the kids responded. There obviously was a bond and trusting relationship. BONUS: wasn't even considering before/aftercare. Even if martial arts were mediocre (which definitely not), the quality academic tutoring and homework help in itself would be worth the price of admission! Did I say I LOVE this program? Did I say both kids usually ask to stay after class so they can "fight"  their coach some more?"
