WHY GMMAC?

COLLABORATION

GMMAC fosters a collaborative community and strives to offer a wide variety of martial arts and classes to a diverse range of individuals. We believe all martial arts deserve recognition and encourage our students to try out all arts/classes they may be interested in.

FITNESS + HEALTH

Whether you’re looking for something fun to do, seeking to pick up some self defense tactics or want to pursue competition, we can accommodate all of your goals. All of our arts/classes provide challenging yet rewarding content. Our practices will strengthen your body and your mind.

INCLUSIVITY

GMMAC’s purpose is to provide an environment of respect and inclusivity. Individuals from all communities are meant to feel welcome and safe. Everybody is expected to treat everyone in the gym fairly and equitably. Individuals will conduct themselves with mutual respect for both instructors and students.

COMMUNITY

All of our instructors are passionate about their respective practices. Propagating our arts and connecting with our members is what inspires us. Our goal is for participants to feel fully immersed within a like minded community. Our success is reflected by your enjoyment.
