Why Our Martial Arts Program Is So Darn Powerful.

Most martial arts force you to "retrain" your body to do things that don't feel natural.

Not here.

We've crafted a program that works WITH your body's natural instincts - not against them.

That means it's FAST to learn, and EASY to use when you need it most.

You'll discover:

Incredible hand to hand combat techniques

How to stay safe when surprise-attacked - and escape

How to defend yourself & the ones you love from an armed attacker

What to do against opponents much larger than you in size

How to turn your environment into a weapon to use against an attacker

How to identify and escape danger BEFORE it happens

Ultimately: How to stay safe & live a peaceful life

Beginner? You're More Than Welcome.

Even if you've never thrown a kick or a punch in your life... you'll fit right in and have a blast from day 1.

9 out of 10 of our members were total beginners when they first came to us.

That means you're in good company with people who understand what it means to start from scratch. You'll get support, kindness, and help through every step of your training.

Get In Amazing Shape, Fast.

You'll build strength, endurance, flexibility, power, and speed.

Plus: You'll like the way you look. Combined with healthy eating, martial arts sculpts and tones your entire body.

Become A More Confident, Better You.

These classes are challenging. But that challenge forces you to dig deep and meet it head on.

As a result, your confidence will soar as you accomplish more and more. You'll realize how strong you really are on the inside and that strength will pour into every area of your life.

That's the true gift of our Adult Martial Arts classes.

Frequently Asked Questions

Any sport or form of exercise comes with a risk of injury. However, there are a few things that make our program very safe. It's because of these few things that we barely see any injuries with our program.

Stretching: At the beginning of every class we go through a series of stretches. These stretches get your muscles and joints ready and warmed up for exercise.

Supervision: Every class is supervised by trained, licensed professionals. We watch carefully to make sure no student is doing anything in a dangerous or unsafe way.

In short, we place a tremendous amount of focus on fun and safety. It's because of this that we feel confident telling you that while there is risk for injury with our program - it's a very small risk.
People come to us of all fitness levels. We get natural-born athletes, and we get people who have a harder time with athletic endeavors. However, everyone gets the same focus and attention.

If you're not in great shape, don't worry. Go at your own pace, and we'll do everything we can to help you learn each and every technique. Soon enough, your physical fitness will improve, and you'll be in better shape than ever!
No! Because self-defense technique is taught in martial arts, it's often thought of as violent. However, the philosophies behind martial arts revolve around peace and harmony. The moves are more of a way to become connected with your body. We teach diplomacy and friendship. However, if a violent situation ever arises in your life, you'll have powerful tools to defend yourself and your loved ones.

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!

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.
