Our Philosophy

UTA offers the highest quality of instruction in a positive and healthy family atmosphere. We were established in 1998 by Grand Master Barry Partridge, who has over 35 years experience, is an 8th degree black belt, and has been voted US Coach of the Year twice.

UTA lets you set your own pace. You will train with others who are at your own level and you will learn self-defense techniques while increasing your strength, flexibility, and speed.

Everything we do is intentional. As an example, each word in our name and every aspect of our logo have a specific meaning.
