Our Story

Sensei Jason has done Judo for his whole life and the sport has always been a passion of his.  NUMA started when Sensei Jason decided to roll out mats in his warehouse and began teaching Judo to his friends, for fun.  When more and more people started coming, he decided to section off his warehouse and created a small dojo. The word began to spread, friends started bringing their children, and over time the club expanded and formally became known as Nova United Martial Arts (NUMA). 


The club has moved a few times over the years and has re-invented itself, but we have always kept the same fun and welcoming atmosphere which we are known for.


In 2019, we moved to Bayers Lake, in our dedicated space which we love.  Our club is equipped with all the necessary equipment for both Judo and fitness classes.  Every week we welcome members from ages 2 to 'mature', with skill level of beginner to competitive.   

Our programs are popular and fill up quick, but we maintain an active waitlist and always welcome the opportunity to meet prospective new members.  Reach out to us if you have any questions or would like to drop by for a visit.


We offer a weekly schedule of classes for every level. Whether you want to dial up the intensity or take a more relaxed approach, we’ve got a class with a spot just for you. Create your own personalized schedule by choosing the classes that suit your needs.
