Teaching children to know right from wrong is one of the toughest challenges parents have to face.
You want your child to have the tools to succeed in life, but protecting them from peer pressure, bullying, and internet predators can make any parent feel overwhelmed with anxiety and stress.
The good news is that at Empowered Martial Arts Academy in Alexandria, our kids martial arts program is the perfect companion to help you raise a strong, confident leader, teaching confidence, focus & self-defense skills.
Martial arts is much more than just kicking and punching. It’s about hard work, discipline, and perseverance. It is integrity and indomitable spirit all rolled into one.

Our students regularly go on to join Ivy schools and become community leaders. The values they learn during their martial arts journey are the same you teach at home and last a lifetime.
Social interaction teaches kids how to effectively work as part of a team.
Martial arts helps improve coordination and is an excellent form of exercise.
Building healthy habits early on can help prevent obesity and diabetes later in life.
Building confidence helps children who have been bullied feel better about themselves. Martial arts skills make them feel stronger and more able to take a stand. Self-confidence in itself is often the greatest deterrent to bullying. For the bullies, building confidence reduces the bully’s need to seek attention by bullying others.
Mastering self-control is a key component of building a disciplined mind. At Empowered Martial Arts Academy we work one-on-one with students to promote emotional awareness and we provide tools to help children manage negative thoughts and emotions. It is normal to feel down sometimes, it is normal to get sad or angry, but the key idea is to not let that negative emotion control you to do or say things you will later regret.
The traditional nature of martial arts teaches kids respect in their classes, whether they are taking a bow or waiting patiently for the next set of instructions. This sense of respect also helps kids improve their grades while improving their listening skills at home and in school.
Learning leadership skills helps children who have been bullied focus on goals and ways to overcome any obstacle, thereby reducing the chances of being bullied in the future. For bullies, learning about leadership teaches them how to listen and work with others, instilling a sense of compassion in the process.
A good martial arts school has humility at the core of its being. This core value of humility is taught daily at Empowered Martial Arts Academy and it is a principle that students take with them into adulthood. Having a humble nature quietly catalyzes social change which is critical to our mission of cultivating the next generation of leaders.

Absolutely not! We have classes for all ability levels and no previous experience is required. More experienced members help new ones, and we make sure that everyone feels right at home on their first day of class.
Even though we practice self-defense moves and we do practice some sparring drills, your child will not be "fighting" anyone or getting hurt. Of course there is always potential for injury with any sports activity, however, our instructors take great care to make sure everyone practices at their own pace without getting injured.
Our martial arts classes' primary goal is to make sure our students have fun in a playful, safe environment. Come and see a class for yourself - the kids have a blast and our instructors do too.
No, our classes are a good mix of boys and girls of all fitness levels. Beginners train alongside some of the more experienced kids, helping each other out in a fun team environment.
