The Lenix Family
The Lenix family wanted to offer Traditional Marital Arts training for the entire family, so they founded Universal Martial Arts in 1993. We felt that since the family lives together, why they shouldn't be able to train together. we truly believe that the family that kicks together sticks together. Also we treat each of our students as a member of our extended family; we call them our Martial Arts Family.
