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.

Martial Arts: The Effective After School Program

A parent’s work schedule never really syncs up perfectly with his/her child’s school schedule. As school lets out for the day, parents are usually wondering what options are in place for them to place their children in until they are out of work. Plus, they want to be able to put their children in programs that going to benefit the child versus sending them to a relative to watch television all afternoon. They might go to tutoring, but that activity can only benefit them on an academic level. If parents are looking for an effective, all-around activity, then they should consider placing their children in a martial arts after school program. In doing so, parents will begin to see great growth and benefits in their children.

Provides Great Education – Discipline and Responsibility

Just because the school bell rang, it does not mean that a child has to stop receiving educational content in an after school program. Martial arts teaches kids how to be disciplined and responsible. The routines associated with martial arts require precision and practice in order to perfect the stances and activities. Students are also required to upkeep their uniforms and belts. They are taught to respect the instructor as well as one another. This type of conditioning in the class allows students to become more mature and responsible. Building this foundation at a young age will produce healthy habits as they grow into teenagers and soon after, adults.

Can be a Place to Make Friends

Children can find it very difficult to make new friends. They may feel uncomfortable in the process and sometimes feel rejected for being what is considered to be “normal” in the school social worlds. Kids can be harsh and when a child is exposed to negative social settings, it can be traumatizing for the rest of their lives. The good thing about putting a child in martial arts is that he/she will get the chance to easily make friends in the program. The other children in the class already share a common interest with one another: martial arts. They all understand the routines and the disciplines behind the activity. Sharing the same mindset allows children within the class to become friends easier and support one another. There are also routines that involve students working with a partner which is a great way to foster teamwork and accountability.

Encourages and Provides Physical Strength and Fitness

Especially in America, more and more children are becoming obese because of the lack of exercise and poor nutrition. Martial arts after school programs offer a great way for children to practice physical fitness every single day. There are warm-up
routines that help students center their thoughts and stretch to prevent injuries. Then, the remaining routines build their muscle and promote great posture. The students are able to become physically strong which is not only good for their bodies but their minds as well. This is because they build a sense of self-confidence as they see their strength grow. They also learn great methods of self-defense, which is ideal for any person of any age.

Finding an after school program that provides a multitude of benefits for a child can be difficult. Martial arts classes are a great option as they can give a child an education that no other activity ever could. It gives a child benefits that affect their minds and bodies, all at the same time. It teaches children to become responsible and matures, traits that cannot be matched by any other program.
