About Us Image


Learning anything can be difficult. You'll notice right away that many of the techniques and drill we teach are challenging, but that's the point!

As you train, and test yourself both physically and mentally, you'll realize that with all of your hard work, your instructor's guidance, and consistently showing up - you are capable of crushing your goals! This sense of achievement gives our members soaring confidence.

As you develop new skills like rolling and swinging - or even how to climb a wall for the first time - you'll experience a sense of accomplishment that's incredibly satisfying and fulfilling. We love seeing this develop in our members!

Global Martial Arts is an unbelievable Academy!  I trained there myself, and when my son said he would like to learn there was no other place I would look!!  It is a fun, safe, family environment.  Master Borucki and his staff go above and beyond, not only teaching self defense, punching, and kicking, but building the self confidence, self awareness, and reinforcing the core values (dedication, determination, persistence, responsibility, etc...) that we want in ourselves and our children.  If you're looking to train, have fun, grow, and build relationships that will last a lifetime, stop in and see for yourself!

Master Joe and his staff are like a big, giant family. Want self defense, its here. Want teen or kids martial arts, its here. Want adult Hapkido, its here. All done in a modern, ultra clean studio. Hope to see you on the mat !

Being a parent of a child with special needs can become isolating. Over the last fifteen years I have struggled with loneliness, exhaustion, and at times depression. At fifty-two, I needed to find something that would re-discipline my mind and my body. I decided to revisit martial arts after a twenty-seven years hiatus and find a place where I might belong. That is when I called Global Martial Arts Academy in Hampstead, MD. I first spoke to Jess and felt a sense of “this is where I need to be.” After speaking to Master Borucki, I decided to sign up for the introductory classes. After three classes, I knew I had found a home. The instructors are phenomenal and they always meet you with a smile. From Mr. Wyatt to Ms. Hannah, to Mr. Don, Mr. Conrad, and Mr. Ken, each one takes a personal interest in each student. Global Martial Arts Academy is about more than training. It is about more than a place to get a workout. I am not exaggerating when I say that Global has given me back the hope and connection I had thought I lost. Sure, I cannot do what I used to do in my 20s, but I have found a home where even my son enjoys going. I have worked with a lot of the instructors some and have worked with some of the instructor a lot and to a man and to a woman, they are some of the best people to be around. They believed in me when I had forgotten how to believe in myself. You don’t have to have my story to begin to re-write the story of your future, but if you need a place to find an inner peace while training your mind and body to achieve something you thought was lost, Global Martial Arts Academy is the place.

This is the place to go to learn practical, street proven self defense. I have never been involved with a more professional group of martial artists! If you want to learn in a ego free enviroment, I highly recommend global!
