My daughter has loved her recent start-up with Freedom Martial Arts. They are very professional and safety has been a priority during Covid-19. Looking forward to many great years together with Harper growing in this sport.

This is an amazing family-oriented school. What we like most is having the privilege of a martial arts school like this in our rural community. Master Altizer was born and raised in the area, and so the whole dynamic creates a close knit atmosphere amongst the students and parents. They offer training from beginner level, to advanced as well as a sports team to compete in AAU right along side other sports. Most importantly though, the discipline and respect, courage, and confidence that FMA instilled in our child I don't believe can be achieved on the same level in any other activity or sport. This is a small school run by a family. For that reason you won't find the same connection with coaches and athletes elsewhere. I recommend trying it out for anyone curious. It's very unlikely you'd be disappointed.

I not only Recommend but Highly Recommend Freedom Martial Arts. Our son Boston started at Freedom Martial Arts a little over a year ago. He was almost 5 at the time. Master Alitzer Miss. Olivia and Miss. Sierra has been very patient but stern with Boston and he has grown so much in the last year. Boston has earned 3 belts and is now part of the forms and sparing team. This school is locally family-owned and operated and they treat your students like family. We are lucky to have such a great school In a rural area. They offer many options from beginners all they way to Olympic Training. Private classes are also offered and also highly recommend if your student needs extra help or wants extra one on one before an upcoming belt test. So no matter the age of or skill level if you are looking for a Taekwondo school and you are in New Kent Or surrounding areas Freedom Martial Arts is the best.

The FMA Family are some of the most welcoming folks we've met since our move to VA. Just a great group of people to work with and their approach to the curriculum is top shelf. Highly recommended for all age groups.

Does Your Child Need A Supportive, Educational, and Fun Activity?

Learning Martial Arts Teaches Young Kids Life Skills While They Have Fun

Young children are curious and active – and they sometimes have difficulty learning to control their bodies and their behavior. They crave structure and thrive in an environment that’s supportive, educational, and fun.

Does your young child

struggle with these things?

They struggle to maintain control of their movements and may be unintentionally destructive.

They find it difficult to focus on a task or to see it through to the end.

They have a hard time sharing their belongings and getting along with other kids.

Parenting young children is a real challenge.

You must balance their natural inquisitiveness and high energy with trying to teach them the basic skills they need for school and life.

Discipline, sharing, and self-control are all things they need to learn to be successful.

The ideal setting is one that’s got some structure but works with kids at their current developmental level. If they have fun while they’re learning, they’ll be more likely to retain those lessons and learn the skills they need.

Results and growth with every class!

Studying martial arts is ideal for young children. It provides them with an outlet for their energy. But, it also teaches them about respect, discipline, and other core values that will go with them beyond the dojo. Junior martial arts classes teach kids to control their movements and behavior, and they’ll learn social skills and interaction at the same time.

Studying Martial Arts Builds Physical Coordination and Control

Young children who learn martial arts find out quickly that each movement must be intentional. They learn to control their movements to the best of their ability.

They also practice hand-eye coordination and learn about their bodies. That means they’ll be less likely to be unintentionally destructive.

Young Martial Arts Students Learn How to Focus

Getting young kids to pay attention can feel like an impossible task. The structure of our martial arts classes shows kids the importance of focus and teaches them by having them apply it to easily-achievable tasks.

The focus they learn in the dojo is something they’ll take home – and into the classroom. That’s why kids who study martial arts tend to be good students, too.

Martial Arts Helps Kids Learn to Deal with Frustration

Martial arts instruction requires students to pursue goals to earn new belts. Young kids can easily become frustrated when they don’t get what they want, but studying martial arts helps them learn the power of persistence.

The physical activity in our classes also helps kids manage stress and anxiety by allowing them to burn it off in a safe and constructive way.

Kids Who Study Martial Arts Learn Good Sportsmanship

Losing is not anybody’s idea of fun, but we all need to learn how to accept a defeat gracefully and move on. We teach students that losing is part of life – and it’s what you do after you lose that tells people who you are.

Even though martial arts is an individual sport, we cultivate an environment of supportive teamwork where students root for one another.

Their instructors are amazing! My son is shy and he’s now a yellow belt and loves going to class!

FAQs

My child still has temper tantrums and I’m worried about how they’ll behave in school. Can studying martial arts help?

Yes, it can. We help children learn the importance of emotional control and respect for others. These are lessons that will help them in the classroom, too.

Will studying martial arts help my child learn how to interact with others and share?

Yes. Even though studying martial arts is an individual pursuit, we teach kids to learn in a collaborative environment with an emphasis on sharing, cooperation, and teamwork.

My child zones out in class and misses important instructions. Can taking martial arts classes help them do a better job of focusing?

Yes. Part of martial arts training is teaching kids to be mindful of themselves and their surroundings. They must focus to succeed in class, and once they learn to do it, they’ll be able to do the same thing at school.

My child is out of control physically, and can be very destructive. How will studying martial arts help?

Martial arts instruction focuses on hand-eye coordination, control, and strength. As kids learn basic moves and then advance, they learn how to control their bodies and movements.

My child gives up easily when frustrated. I want them to learn persistence. Can your classes help?

Yes. It’s common for students to require more than one attempt to earn a new belt. We teach them that trying is the most important thing – and that persistence pays off.

My child is disrespectful to me and to other caregivers. How can studying martial arts change that?

Respect is at the core of everything we do in the dojo. Kids who study martial arts must respect their instructors and fellow students, and we find that they learn to respect parents, teachers, caregivers, and siblings at the same time.
