Welcome! As a student of UMS Training Center we want your training to be as rewarding as possible. To help you get off to a good start, we have prepared this Student Welcome page. It contains valuable information for adult students and the parents of our youth students. The purpose of this page is to define guidelines for what you can expect from UMS Training Center, and what is expected of you. Read this Student Welcome Page completely!
Parents/Guardians should read this page with their children and discuss it with them,
especially the rules section.
It is our goal at UMS Training Center to share the good values of the martial arts—to help our students reach high, yet attainable goals, and develop themselves as a whole person.
At UMS Training Center, we believe that everyone has the potential to become a Black Belt which is the goal for every UMS student! It requires a great deal of commitment, dedication, and hard work but it is within every student’s grasp.
Our programs strongly emphasize team spirit and cooperation. Throughout the course of training the student will work with many different people - Instructors, assistant Instructors, and fellow students. You will find the environment friendly and supportive because we have common goals - to excel in the martial arts and become as good as we can be in life.
Much of what the student will learn here will carry over into other aspects of their life and remain with them long into the future. Many martial artists will tell you their involvement was a life-changing event and most Black Belts will list getting their Black Belt as one of the major accomplishments of their lives, right up there with graduating from college, getting married, and having children.
Parents should know that we stress positive values: Courtesy, Integrity, Perseverance, Self-Control and Indomitable Spirit in ways that make family, friends and fellow students proud. We let our younger students know that, while martial arts, sports and other activities may be fun and important, their most important responsibilities are doing well in school, helping the family in every way possible, and being good citizens in the community. We are prepared to work in partnership with parents to help keep kids’ priorities in proper order.
Once again, Welcome to the UMS family! . . . and congratulations for your decision to pursue training with us. I’m sure you will find it fun and rewarding in many ways.
