Dear Students & Parents of Elite Mixed Martial Arts Center, 

     I want to explain if I mis-step in relaying any information. I am on the phone everyday with Governor Wolf's Office, PA Department of Health and various other organizations. We recently filed for grants that are being offered by Pennsylvania. This process took over 6 hours to complete. I am trying to be attentive to all the needs of our school. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any problems.

     Now the new scare, I spoke at length with the PA Dept. of Health. Our students do not need masks when working out at our program. It is very dangerous to work out with masks on. So, all guidelines we put into place were approve through the PA Dept. of Health. We were commended for our thoroughness!

If anyone in still concerned for their student please advise if they are interested in having their child do a Virtual Class. There will be a minimal fee for this class. If your child is attending our school and would like to do Zoom also there is no charge. This is part of their monthly tuition. As stated before, if you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact Cindy.

Even though Elite M.M.A. Center is a mixed martial art, we still maintain the traditional martial arts through our advanced weapons .

Our philosophy of martial arts is to promote the warrior spirit of discipline, self-control, focus, determination, consideration and respect while bringing the values of family to the forefront. Elite Mixed Martial Arts Center is a family based school with over 25 years of martial arts experience, with which to help enrich the minds and hearts of their students.

Martial arts is not just the art of self-defense, but the ability to bring what is inside out. To develop within its students the qualities of a true Martial Artist, then to bring those attributes into everyday lives. We at Elite Mixed Martial Arts Center promise to cultivate these to create a well-rounded individual, who will have the ability to handle the challenges of each new day.

 Endurance and Loyalty comes from the heart, Intensity and Technique comes from the mind and Energy comes from the soul. 

"You will have the ability to face any obstacle if you put your heart, mind and soul into it!"

Lincoln - prepping for his future as a martial artist @ Elite Mixed Martial Arts Center


Our youth sparring program from ages 6 to 12 years DOES NOT hit to the head when learning to spar and they do wear protective gear! Our black belts and adults use specialized gear to protect the students. Our motto: "Safety first in all our classes!" We are always available to answer any questions regarding our program. Please contact Elite Mixed Martial Arts Center or stop in to observe one of our classes.

Integrity walks hand and hand with the ability to defend! For one to travel with the means to protect they must have the consciousness
of honor.



Information regarding the World Karate Union Hall of Fame:

The World Karate Union also had a for tournaments during the late 1990's and early 2000's that would rate competitors for any tournaments they competed at, regardless if they were affiliated with the national promotions, which prevented great competitors from competing due to extensive traveling and expenses.

In 2009, when MMA was legalized in Pennsylvania, the WKU partnered with Central Pennsylvania Warriors Challenge and hosted an MMA cage fighting event, which was successful and held twice after.

The World Karate Union believes in giving back to the community and hosts an annual Toys for Tots Karate Tournament every year since 2011 and has raised over $20,000 in that time to give away to the charity.

In 2014, WKU co founder Kathi Tasetano passed away unexpectedly and her son, Trevor, began to operate the organization. The Kathi Tasetano Memorial Scholarship was set up to award two $500 for a boy and girl black belt in the 15-17 year old division at the WKU tournament every year since her passing.

The WKU is only as strong as its members, and continues
to grow.
