Twin Cities CMA

Christ-Centered Martial Artists

Welcome to
Twin Cities CMA!

We are Christ-centered Martial Artists (CMA)! You will have fun, get fit, & learn self-defense! Most importantly of all, CMA is centered on the teachings of Jesus Christ. CMA is a blend of Tang Soo Do and Zu Wei Shu Kenpo. Beginners ages 7 and up are welcome to join at any time. We teach a four-year program in which students progress through our belt ranks to 1st Degree Black Belt - Instructor Grade.

CMA trains kicking, punching, forms, sparring, throwing, grappling, and self-defense, as well as stretching to gain and maintain flexibility. 

Experience our dynamic family life training skills that equip you for every day challenges! Have fun becoming fit! CMA training, amplified by the Word of God, builds character, and self-worth. Feel the fellowship as you achieve new belt levels.

Happenings in CMA Today!

Stella Palmer earned her 1st Degree Black Belt - Instructor Grade on October 21, 2021!!!


What an outstanding Presentation it was! It began with Sifu Stella's 2 1/2 hour Spiritual Evaluation on October 20th that was officiated by Pastor & Sigung Jeff Senior Examiner and Pastor Jeff Goodwin, Sr; and Senior Pastors and CMA Evaluators Jerome Hamilton, Jr, and Martin Bownik. This most godly 13 year old presented her faith in the most admirable way to the delight of the Evaluators! 


The next day, Sifu Stella personally created and DEFINED her 2 1/2 hour long Physical/Mental/Spiritual Presentation that was the best one since Sifu Jeffrey Goodwin, Jr presented in 2005! In this time, she explained the centrality of CMA... that we preach Christ... And Him crucified! She went on to DEFINE what BE!-coming and BE!-ing a Christ-centered Martial Artist means to her by demonstrating stretching, basics, One Steps, Forms, Breaking in a Form, and sparring.


Thank you Sifu Stella for BE!-ing-an-Example to your Juniors and Seniors. You are a blessing to our school!
