Our Mission is to help make our students more successful in life through the practice of their martial arts, and to always influence them in a positive manner.
WHO ARE WE
We must instill the Champion’s Attitude; to set goals for self improvement, and to develop the non-quitting spirit that is necessary to overcome obstacles and to be more successful.
Next, we hope to educate and influence a student’s overall Behavior, so that they will develop habits and lifestyle that will lead toward long term success; to learn and practice self-discipline in everything we do.
Finally, is to reinforce solid Character development, and to live by a set of principles and standards that can be applied to daily living; to encourage the formation of high personal standards and demonstrate respect for all human beings.
Developed through years of research and practical application.
REAL WORLD RESULTS
“We live in Newport and have to drive quite a ways to get to this Academy. It is worth the extra effort! My son loves USBA! We knew it was good but felt it might be too far to drive. Now we look forward to it every week – and the staff is amazing! You cannot put a price tag on helping your child build self-respect! I highly recommend checking out USBA. Thank you U.S. Blackbelt Academy!” – M & M, Newport Beach, CA
