We would like to send out a huge thanks to everyone who had a hand in making the 2015 United States Martial Arts Association (USMAA) National Training Camp such a success! Without all the organizers, instructors, students, etc we would not be able to put this camp on each year. Make sure you tell all the martial artists you know about the camp so we can make next year's camp even better! Speaking of next year's camp, the tentative dates for 2016 are; Thursday, July 7 through Saturday, July 9!

This is a great opportunity to train with martial artists from various backgrounds and styles.
