The UNIVERSAL MARTIAL ARTS BROTHERHOOD, INC. is based in Ann Arbor, Michigan and was founded by Grandmaster Eugene A. Humesky, 10th Degree (Deceased-2014). He is the Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Universal Martial Arts Brotherhood, Inc. The birth of the UMAB, Inc. was in January of 1994. Grandmaster Humesky saw a need to broaden the horizons of his students and instructors. He sought to expand their training by making membership into his organization available to all styles of the martial arts thus, allowing free expression of ideas, theories and the exchange of new concepts to and from his Tae Kwon Do practitioners. This birth of the Universal Martial Arts Brotherhood, Inc. embraced the entire martial arts community.
