For 35 years, Rob Eis has been dedicated to the practice of martial arts. Inspired by live action Japanese superheroes he watched as a child on TV growing up in Hawaii, Rob’s martial arts career began with the study of traditional Shito-ryu and Goju-ryu Karate at the age of 10. By age 15 he was competing internationally and that year he was the youngest member on the U.S. Junior National Karate Team. Since then, he has studied a multitude of styles that he now teaches to others, including Doce Pares Escrima, Shamrock Submission Fighting, Judo, Western Boxing, Brazilian Jiu-jitsu, JKD concepts, and Muay Thai kickboxing.

Training at the Unbridled Martial Arts studio is a unique experience. Whether you have been training for years or you just decided to start something new, UMA accommodates all levels of MMA. Rob brings decades of experience and insight into his training. He isn’t there to make money, but to bring the sport of MMA to the community and anyone who has interest in it. He opened my eyes and heart to what MMA can do for you not only physically, but mentally. He is constantly pushing and encouraging each student to surpass their own level and ability. The open and friendly environment makes it easy to establish great friendships. Everyone in the studio is motivating, caring, and interested in helping others. I give UMA the highest recommendation there is. I wish other studios like UMA were south of Bellingham. If you’re looking for a memorable and challenging experience, this is the place for you!
Passion, Skill, ongoing Knowledge and Professional. To find qualities such as these at a Martial Arts School can be rare. To find them all in one Instructor is even rarer. Rob Eis and his Unbridled Martial Arts School have all of these. Rob’s Passion to his school, students, and his training are noticeable from the first time you meet him. He devotes a lot of his own free time to provide training to all of his students. Those who pay him and those he teaches due to his passion for his Art. He provides a great deal of useful knowledge for a minimal fee; he doesn’t waste your time with outdated training or tradition. His Skill is well documented, yet he is not overbearing or unapproachable to ask questions. He provides a full range of Martial Arts instruction with great skill. He continually seeks new training to incorporate into his teachings. His ongoing Knowledge lets his students and other Instructors know that he has an open mind and is always looking to improve. He is eager to learn and will try new material and not tie his hands to one way. This provides his students with a wide variety of information to constantly work with. Rob is a true Professional. He is a hard worker, a great self-promoter and an up standing citizen. Rob proves it’s not Quantity but Quality. He provides a safe, clean and fun training facility with energetic instruction. His students share in Rob’s energetic teaching and create a great atmosphere. I recommend Rob Eis and Unbridled Martial Arts to anyone looking for great Instruction, well-rounded training, a safe environment, and professionalism.
1.) Thank goodness for Martial Arts. It filled a void in my life – knowing what I know after a couple months. I should have started 20 years ago, but I have at least that much left, and Martial Arts will be a part of it. 2.) Fitness – I am 8 lbs. lighter, self-defense skills are much better. My attitude has changed for the better. Thank you for so much.
