Martial Arts Classes in Ames

Our mission is to instill life-changing traits in every student who enters our school. Studying martial arts at our school will be a rewarding activity for you with benefits to last a lifetime!

In the early 80's we each started the martial arts at Iowa State University. We found that the high expectations of the martial arts were not only physical but mental as well. 

We learned that the martial arts were more than just a way of defending yourself but rather it is a way of living your life in harmony with yourself and those around you. A way of motivating yourself to achieve your goals and to be an inspiration to others.

When we began our martial arts journey, the positive impact it had on our lives was remarkable. It was always our dream to someday own our own school, and when we opened the Family Martial Arts Center of Ames in 1983, we made a commitment to our community in Ames to create an enjoyable environment for students to improve their fitness while building confidence they can carry into their everyday lives.

We hope that achieving our goal of creating a high quality martial arts center will give you the opportunity to reach your goals both in the martial arts and in life. Classes at the Family Martial Arts Center of Ames provide enjoyment for each of our students, as well as a lifetime of physical and mental learning and growth.

Masters Jill Hegland and John Shilkaitis
