Kids & Family

Charlotte Martial Arts Academy offers a variety of classes for students of all ages, beginning at age 7.  Whether you want to get fit and learn self-defense or want your child to gain new confidence and self-discipline, we’ve got the program for you.

Our Junior/Adult classes in the many martial arts styles we teach are offered throughout the week for beginners, novices, intermediate, and more advanced students. There is also a weekly evening class open only to adults of all levels.

The goal of our instructors is to prepare every student to ultimately be able reach a black belt. Black Belt is the symbol of excellence in martial arts and an important tool for instructors and parents to use in the development of desire, tenacity, and for teaching the importance of follow-through in all activities. When students show readiness to train at this level of dedication they will be invited to join CMAA’s Black Belt Club.

“Someone may say to me ‘I like the confidence your child shows by introducing himself, looking me in the eye, and shaking my hand.’ Whenever I praise Colin on this kind of behavior, he will tell me I have Sensei to thank. He will stick to a task until completion and tell me I have Sensei to thank. He is kind and compassionate to younger children and tells me I have Sensei to thank…I am grateful for the positive impact that Sensei and his very competent team have had in my son’s life.”  – Mary Gay
