Get Fit While Learning Martial Arts

The Academy of Martial Arts studio in Ankeny was founded in 2004 by Master Kevin Deaver, a 5th degree Black Belt in Tae Kwon Do and in Hapkido.

His mission of sharing the transformative power of martial arts with families and individuals continues with a curriculum that empowers students with the skills, leadership qualities, and positive attitude to improve their lives.

At Academy Of Martial Arts, we believe in the power of positive reinforcement. We help our students grow their confidence, build discipline, and become the best they can be. Traditional Martial Arts training isn't just about punches and kicks -- it's about striving to be better. Enroll for your first class and see for yourself why parents around Ankeny and Des Moines are choosing our academy to help their kids perform better in school, learn respect, and practice lasting leadership skills!

But Martial Arts isn't just for kids! We've also helped adults from across our community develop more robust fitness, learn practical self-defense, and feel revitalized! Our classes offer a great workout, professional instructors, and a passionate community. It's never too late to get started.
