MARTIAL ARTS


Combine fitness, meditation, discipline, self-defense, and self-confidence in YMCA martial arts for youth, teens, tweens, and adults.

In martial arts classes, learn physical and mental discipline, develop concentration, and practice the YMCA's core values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility.

Martial arts contributes to increased physical strength, flexibility, balance, control, discipline, and spirituality. Students train with others at their own skill level progressing from basic stances, punches, blocks, and kicks to the study of more advanced patterns of movement and defense objectives.
