AfterSchool Program

Welcome to the UMAA Fort Washington Afterschool Program

United Martial Arts Academy offers a full spectrum afterschool program. We focus on assisting children with their homework, followed by targeted and individual tutoring in all subjects but specifically in math. After our tutoring we transition seamlessly into a martial arts environment, where kids learn effective grappling and striking as individuals and teams. In addition to all that we offer enrichment in many topics, but specifically in STEM.

program benefits

highlights

Our program trains students in grappling, striking, martial arts and in community service/ethical actions. Our martial arts program is focused on individual performance but constantly stresses a team mindset. Our approach to academics is based on common core standards in the state of Maryland, but it also allows students to get help on specific skills they may lack. Ultimately, though, or aim is to get them ahead of their peers with one to one tutoring and with small classroom engagement. Since we can see what the entire year will cover in math, for example, we are able to develop a personal road map for each child; allowing them to reinforce where necessary, and to advance past their peers when able.
