Founded in 1994 by World Tae Kwon Do Championship Medalist Dante E. Peña, Ultimate Martial Arts has been teaching the highest quality Tae Kwon Do for over a decade. Master Peña is a former member of the Philippine National Team and a five-time national champion, and a recipient of the Presidential Citation Award from former Philippine President Fidel V. Ramos in recognition of his achievements in Tae Kwon Do. Since 2002, Ultimate Martial Arts has also been a Krav Maga Worldwide official training center. Popular with the military, police, and average civilians, Krav Maga is an effective, practical system that also incorporates physical fitness techniques for an all around, total body workout.
