We find that our students become more confident to stand up to bullies and have more humility and kindness to others through their martial arts lessons.

We encourage parents to watch their children in their kids martial arts lessons.  We love parents getting involved!  And so do their kids.  Even better… join into some of our martial arts classes for adults.   Your kids will love that you have something in common.  It will build a strong family bond!

Additionally, if you wanted some ‘me-time’?  Simply drop them off, and go grab a coffee.  They will greet you with a huge smile when you return, because they had SO much fun!

Covid 19 Info

The Academy of Martial Arts will allow parents, students, staff, and members of the public to make their own decision about mask usage. 

We continue to strongly recommend that face coverings be worn, in alignment with the guidance from the CDC that individuals who have not been vaccinated continue to wear masks indoors. Additionally, it is still vitally important that any students or staff members who are feeling ill, stay home.

Thank you to our staff, students, and parents for working together throughout this year. While these changes in guidance always seem to come about abruptly, we appreciate the community working together to help protect each other and our students.

We do only have a certain amount of space in our martial arts training area.  To take advantage of our limited time offer…. The fastest way is to fill in form . 

Additionally, you can always call us, we would love to chat with you about what we do, and if our Ankeny martial arts classes would be a great fit for you and your family!
