Over 10 years of experience!

At Aspire Uma Academy, we aim to be the hub of modern self-defence and martial arts. We set up our school in the heart of the community of Eastleigh so that people of all ages could master the art of self-defence, find an outlet for self-development, and enhance their general wellbeing. We want to give back to our community and encourage positive change in ourselves and our students. 
At our martial arts academy we do not promote competition. Instead, we look to enhance your fitness and wellbeing through the dedicated practice of martial art. Our sessions are for people aged 7 and up, as well as for those who are eager to learn practical skills. 
Our motto is "Prepared, Dynamic, Strong" and encompasses the virtues that we aspire to every day. These are the three qualities that we believe help you to achieve any other goals that you set for yourself. We welcome all of our students to aim for their very best self and help them every step of the way! Why not book your first session with us today?

My daughter and I have recently joined this new school as black belts, having had a break from martial arts.
I am impressed with the set up, and feel safe and confident in the controls measures in place under COVID guidelines.
Sabumnim Griffiths is able to engage adults and children of all ages, ensuring classes are fun and inspiring for all.
The training is well thought out and carefully planned to progress students at different stages of their journey.
We really enjoy training here and highly recommend to anyone looking to learn, get fit, and feel a sense of achievement.

Since my son and I enrolled in UMA Academy Eastleigh we have both really enjoyed learning new skills and techniques involved in martial arts. The Instruction is professional and the classes are very enjoyable.
Having something to work for is great and seeing people in the class who have already achieved so much is inspiring and shows you what can be gained from hard work and determination.
I would highly recommend this particular martial art class and look forward to progressing through the belts.
