|We are excited to announce the addition of Soma Academy (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 Soma Academy to share the
knowledge of Jiu Jitsu that he has acquired over the past 12 years. Soma Academy was created as a school to
help people overcome obstacles on the mat and in life. The focus of Soma Academy 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:
Soma Academy is located inside of Oxford Martial Arts and Fitness in Oxford, OH.

|OXFORD MARTIAL ARTS & FITNESS OUT OF THE RING
|Oxford Martial Arts & Fitness
is a proud member of the
Infinity Fitness Family
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.
