|We are excited to announce the addition of Academy Soma (Brazilian Jiu Jitsu) to our facility. Matt Strack
(Owner/Instructor) is one of a very small group of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu students to receive his Black Belt while under
direct instruction from Master Pedro Sauer in Salt Lake City, UT. Matt started Academy Soma to share the
knowledge of Jiu Jitsu that he has acquired over the past 12 years. Academy Soma was created as a school to
help people overcome obstacles on the mat and in life. The focus of Academy Soma is to engage students in
learning while using a smooth or soft approach.
For more information about Academy Soma visit them on the web at:

Taekwondo is defined as "the way of the foot and hand." This Korean martial art
emphasizes the use of kicking and punching (using kicking approximately 70% of the
time and punching the other 30%). This is simply because the legs are longer and more
powerful than the arms, therefore inflicting more damage to one's opponent, whether
the conflict occurs in the sparring ring, governed by rules of competition or on the
street dominated by, well, let's face it...no rules or you might say, "survival of the
fittest'. The programs at OMAF are designed for the young and young at heart.
Students are taught traditional Taekwondo, self-defense, one-step sparring, Olympic
style sparring, terminology, taekwondo etiquette, forms, proper kicking, punching,
blocking, as well as board-breaking techniques. We are a family friendly organization.
Classes are designed to allow families to take class together. Whatever your goals may
be, whether you want to participate in competitions, improve focus and discipline, get
in shape, or meet new people and develop friendships that will last a lifetime, we are
just the place you're looking for.
|WOW! What an exciting evening on Sunday, September 27, 2014, as blackbelt instructors, led by Master Carman Clark and assisted by Joel Gray, Josh Gray,
Mrs. Ashley Gray, Abby Gray, Mrs. Jennifer Eaton, Dr. Barb Gannod, Mrs. Adriel Wiseman, Sarah Eaton, and Barry Gray had the honor of meeting the women of
Miami's Kappa Delta Sorority and sharing with them some basic self-defense techniques and information. We couldn't have asked for better weather as we met
on the beautiful grounds of MacCracken Hall for this interactive event. It is our desire that NO one would ever have to use any of these moves, but unfortunately,
we live in an imperfect world, so if we can make a difference in one person's life by empowering women with something as simple as changing-up a routine or
habit (talking on the phone or texting that would shut down one's natural instincts to surrounding dangers), even screaming or yelling to draw attention to a
dangerous situation, or if it comes down to it; using these physical techniques to get away from an attacker.... who knows? Maybe we can change this
world....one woman at a time.

In honor of Crime Prevention Month, Oxford Martial Arts & Fitness taught a self-defense seminar at the
Lane Public Library in Oxford on Monday, October 20th. Everyone that attended had a great time as
Master Carman Clark, Mr. Joel Gray and Ms. Sarah Eaton demonstrated basic self-defense techniques,
while Mr. Barry Gray (retired police officer) talked about being aware of your surroundings, the dangers
of having your attention divided by talking on a cell phone (interfering with your natural instinct to alert
you to danger), the significance of not "looking" like a victim, and the importance of having a plan. The
audience was encouraged to try out these movements on the instructors and one another. A special
THANK YOU goes out to Samantha Loopstra and the staff at the Oxford Lane Public Library for giving
us this opportunity to serve the citizens of Oxford, Ohio.
