Instill confidence, Learn discipline, Improve your Health


As martial artist we strive to find what works. It is not about a particular style over another its about getting home safe. It about protecting  ourselves and our loved ones from  dangers that are thrust upon us.  Simply put we are students of the arts, We are gathers of the arts, and we are practitioners of the arts.

At EMA we proudly offer these systems:

What makes EMA so special?

Lots of martial arts studios will tell you they are a family friendly environment, but we are ohana, we ARE family. Some of our students that trained as kids, now bring their children to EMA to receive the same lessons: patience, perseverance, belief, courage, honesty, self-control, respect for others and love of humanity.
