Maya for Motion Graphics Tutorials?

I finally have identified what I want skill I want to build and master. This:

http://unitedmotions.com/

But when it comes to Maya to After Effects tutorials, they're scarce, right? I know the popular thing is Cinema 4D, but I would prefer getting better at something I am good at vs. being mediocre at both.

I want good tutorials (not random YouTube ones, but focused, full professional online courses) on compositing for motion graphics from Maya to After Effects.

The United Motions work looks intimidating, but anything can be broken down, understood and achieved. I don't understand why Maya artists are being ignored for this type of work by professional subscription sites.

Does anyone else understand my position?

Thank you. I've recently heard of Mash, but I think that's an alternative to Cinema 4D's mograph for particle-like effects it seems.

I am hoping to find recent tutorials on creating the type of motion graphics like broadcast bumpers from United Motions for instance, Digital Tutors has a ports motion graphics for Cinema 4D tutorial, a text motion graphics tutorial for Maya (which doesn't make sense because Maya is the worst for text) and other tutorials for rendering multi-passes from Maya to After Effects with camera tracking (very complicated scenes). So that leaves someone at a learning stage kind of trying to piece this all together to figure out how to do something that could be simple.

All I hope to find are some tutorials creating sports opens/entertainment bumpers style motion graphics animations just like United Motions.

For now, I am referencing YouTube's array of offerings while the two sites I pay for aren't helping much.
