At UMF, we TRAIN HARD, TRAIN SMART, TRAIN FOR REALITY AND TRAIN FOR LIFE. United Martial Arts Fitness (UMF) was founded in 2005 by Pablo Cardenas with humble beginnings of 30 students. UMF has grown significantly and is now recognised as one of the top Martial Arts Academies in North Queensland with over 160 students. UMF run 11 different programs for all ages and fitness levels. With a supportive and encouraging environment, you can trust in knowing you’re in safe hands when training with us. With three dedicated kids classes for ages four to 14- along with tailored adult classes- there’s something for everyone. We pride ourselves on our training approach which focuses on discipline, self-control and respect. Our kids classes incorporate the UMF Character Development System, engaging the Non-Striking Solutions and the Bully Buster System ™. These systems encourage children to be resilient, confident and to be able to stand up for themselves – skills that come hand in hand with training at UMF. We set our students up for a lifetime of success.

I've been attending UMF Academy for a little under a year now, specifically their Street Edge Krav Maga classes. Since joining I have not only learned valuable techniques and knowledge about the physical side of self defence, but I have also been able to improve my mindset and awareness in the mental side of self defence which has proved useful and effective in my line of work a security guard.
