Champions martial arts is a great facility with so many different opportunities to offer. It has the best after school program in Alamance county with some of the best staff around. Not to mention a great taekwondo program for all ages. It also has a great Brazilian-Jiu-Jitsu class. All of the classes are very friendly and are great for beginners and people already trained in the respected art. The classes are taught by some of the best in the sport and are great for anyone looking to leran how to defend themselves or just wanting a great workout.

I am a new member of Champions Martial Arts and Fitness. I have been attending the XFit class for two weeks and just started the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu class. I have found the environment to be very friendly and comfortable for a beginner in all facets of martial arts. Coach Marc has been very encouraging in the martial arts techniques and in the diet/weight loss program. I look forward to each workout and I can tell that the classes are already helping me on my weight loss journey. I recommend checking out Champions Martial Arts if you are looking for a alternative way to workout instead of going to the gym.

In 3 short months, Champions Martial Arts has had a tremendous impact on my fitness (down 30 lbs!) Coach Marc Fletcher has been fantastic at not only motivating me to work hard, but sharing valuable insight into my martial art of choice Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. Champions is a fun and friendly environment for kids and adults. Come in and get rowdy with us!

I have been taking BJJ at Champions for several months now and I have thoroughly enjoyed it. Marc is a great instructor and the culture is extremely friendly and easy going. I would highly recommend Champions for anyone interested in BJJ or any other martial arts class they offer.

I frequent the adult kickboxing classes and have a great time! The instructors are super friendly and helpful! Classes tend to last 50ish minutes and 25 of that is spent doing bag work. Then there is an extended warm up and cool down on either side. These classes are definitely newbie-friendly, as they are more fitness/exercise-oriented than skill/technique-oriented. The classes can feel a little redundant, so I like when they incorporate different moves and conditioning exercises throughout the class. Thanks guys

I've been waiting to write a review. After 4 weeks of kickboxing and one week of my kids taking classes I'd say we, as a family, are hooked. I've never had a better workout than I do during the kickboxing classes. I enjoy the instructors and the different variations they provide. As for my children, they are completely thrilled to be doing something new, staying active, meeting new people and gaining confidence. I truly hope this is a long term thing for all of us!

I have been attending Champions since April, and I have fallen in love with the adult kickboxing class! It's the first time that I have ever been excited to go workout! I'm actually bummed if I have to miss a class. The instructors are very friendly and really help push you to keep going! They switch up the workouts so you're never bored, and let's face it the 80's rock music is just a bonus! It's a great group of people, a great atmosphere, and a great way to stay active and healthy! Thanks guys!

Of 3 local martial arts facilities, Champions was the only one to give me good prompt information, professional customer service, and a welcome feeling. My son is almost 5 years old and has been welcomed into his class by staff and students alike, and LOVES it. The atmosphere, structure, and quality of instruction are AMAZING. We’re happy to be part of the Champions family!

We love Champions! My son has been a student here for 2.5 years (since he was 3) and he's learned so much. The entire staff really cares about the kids. They have a lot of fun and get their energy out while learning. The little ninja's classes are 40 minutes and take place every evening (there is one Saturday morning as well) so you have a choice to bring your child which ever day/time works best for your schedule. It's really helpful to us as a large, busy family to have the flexibility. They even off afterschool care, camps, and parents night out. We have only done the PNO so far but our son has a BLAST. He talks about it for days after.

We cannot state enough what an amazing opportunity and experience this has been for our son Isaac.
The staff are amazing with the children and teach them not just MMA but a great deal of self control and respect.
I really don't pay for just martial arts training, I pay for Isaac to learn respect, control, working together and so much more!
He has so much fun and loves the teachers.

How to Avoid Being a Victim of Bullying

How to Avoid Being a Victim of Bullying

Bullying has become an epidemic in recent years. Yes, there have always
been bullies, and yes, those bullies have always caused serious and
lasting damage to their victims; however, bullying in the 21st century
has changed – and not for the better.
According to Pacer’s National Bullying Prevention Center, one in four
students has reported that they were bullied during the school year.
The consequences of bullying can be devastating. Victims are more
likely to experience a decrease in their academic performance, anxiety,
depression, and behavioral problems.
Being that bullying is such a rampant problem in the United States,
children need to be presented with methods that will teach them how to
combat being the victim of the name calling, teasing, and harassment
that are associated with bullying behavior.

How can kids avoid becoming the victim of a bully?

Here are some tips
that can be highly effective.
TIP #1 – Be Confident
Typically, bullies tend to prey on those who appear to lack confidence
and who are unsure of themselves. If a bully sees that someone is
lacking confidence, he or she is more likely to target that individual and
harass that person.
Being confident is one of the most effective ways to avoid being bullied.
Kids need to have inner confidence, and they need to be able to project
that confidence outward.
Parents can help build their children’s
confidence by building them up and supporting them. When children
know that they are valued, they automatically have confidence.
Kids can exude their inner confidence by standing tall, making eye contact, being
friendly and taking pride in their appearance.

Tip # 2 – Gain the Support of Friends

One or two great friends is worth more than 100 fair-weather friends.
This is especially true if someone wants to avoid being bullied.
Kids should pick their friends wisely, and should gather their support.
Remaining in contact with those friends – walking down the school halls
with them, sitting with them on the bus, or eating with them in the
cafeteria – will prevent a bully from targeting a child.
Typically, bullies tend to take aim at children who are ‘loners.’ Support from friends is a
highly powerful force against bullies.
Tip #3 – Stand Up for Yourself
If a bully does start to attack, a child should not only know that it is OK
to stand up for him- or herself, but that standing up must be done.
If a child encounters someone who is saying or doing hurtful things, that
child should exert his or her inner confidence, stand tall, look the bully
in the eye and tell him or her to stop it. Once the child tells the bully to
stop, he or she should walk away and move on.
Letting the bully see that he or she has impacted the victim will only make him or her feel
successful, which will make him or her want to try again.
Kids have the power to stop bullies, and martial arts help them find that
power. By following these tips, children can avoid being the victim of
such cruel behavior and avoid the lasting consequences of bullying.

Steps to handling a Bully”, comment below and we can set up a
complimentary Lesson for your child.
This one lesson has the power to change your child’s mindset about
dealing with bullies and help their confidence
