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.

This place has allowed me to feel strong again, to feel like I have some power and some control over my health. It kicks my behind but I love it! Can't wait for the next class:)

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.

Why every child can benefit from martial arts classes

Maybe you’re still not sure that studying martial arts is right for your child.

That’s okay. I understand. There are lots of activities to choose from, and you want to pick the best.

Of course, I’m biased. I started studying martial arts when I was very young, and I know first hand that martial arts classes offer benefits that other activities don’t. So, I hope you don’t mind if I remind you of them.

Let’s start with the physical benefits. Kids who study martial arts:

  • Build core strength
  • Tone their muscles
  • Learn balance and coordination
  • Improve their fine motor skills
  • Build stamina
  • Lose extra pounds if they need to
  • Learn the importance of healthy eating habits

That’s a lot to learn from one activity! And while team sports can offer some of these benefits, martial arts is the only endeavor I know that improves them all.

Now let’s look at the educational benefits – the things that kids learn in our classes that they take to school. They include:

  • The importance of treating teachers and fellow students with respect
  • How to focus on a task and give it their full attention
  • How to memorize a series of instructions or movements
  • How to interact with other students in a social setting
  • How to set goals and discipline themselves to achieve them

These are all core skills that kids will use for the rest of their lives!

And finally, there are the emotional and behavioral benefits. Kids learn:

  • How to control their emotions and channel them into something positive
  • How to deal with disappointment – and learn from it
  • How to manage stress
  • How to be mindful in every aspect of their lives
  • Why they should trust themselves
  • How to spot (and avoid) danger

The importance of these skills can’t be overstated. They matter. Kids who learn these things have a great chance of succeeding in whatever they do. It’s not just about what happens in our classes. Studying martial arts teaches kids life skills.

And, as I mentioned before, martial arts classes can also help your child overcome big problems – things like bullying and shyness. It can truly be life changing – and I want your child to experience these benefits now and in the future.
