Membership

Free outdoor Tai Chi and Short Stick Art are held at 9:30 am Saturday mornings, weather permitting.

The Silver Spring Martial Arts Association, located in Silver Spring, Maryland, was founded on a non-profit club format. This was done to ensure intense quality training without the obligations associated with a commercial school. The club format allows us to keep costs down and pass the savings to our members. The Association conducts three classes a week (please see schedule below for location, days and times). We encourage visitations to our classes. Please contact us by email prior to a visit.

We collect dues annually.

The costs of membership are as follows:

  • $275 annual dues
  • $35 annual KWK-TMAA affiliation fee – Optional
  • Uniform pricing varies according to size
  • Association patch $7.00

Mixed Self-Defense classes are held every Monday and Thursday at the William Tyler Page Elementary School Gym starting at 6:30pm until 8pm. Tai Chi classes are held 6:30pm-7:30pm.

Before your first sessions, please download and fill out the SSMA membership/waiver form.

*Beginners are required to attend the Monday class.
