United Martial Arts Centers of Fishkill was established in 2011 by Master Anthony Melella. Master Melella has dedicated his life to spreading martial arts values to the Dutchess County Community.
Master Melella, is a 5th degree black belt in Taekwondo, a former National & International Level Competitor, and has been training since 1986, working diligently to share his passion with as many people as he can. Now, with a new modern facility and an incredible team of Instructors and staff behind him, the positive impact in the community is inevitable.
What makes training at UMAC special is the magical environment that has been created and sustained in the school. When a new member comes in, there comments are usually, “What great energy here,” or, “Wow, everyone looks so positive.” The energy at UMAC is tremendous and contagious. When all students are working together to accomplish a common vision, the atmosphere is astounding! The positive environment at UMAC is fostered and shared by all Masters, Instructors and Students alike through genuine enthusiasm and caring that is reinforced by showing mutual respect and appreciation.
