231 Main Street, Ames, IA 50010
We remember when we were children, feeling uncertainty about beginning martial arts. We wondered if we had what it took to succeed and we weren't the most athletic or confident children - quite the opposite. Little did we know that beginning our martial arts journey would be one of the most profound experiences of our lives!
When we opened our school in 1983, we made a commitment to serving and empowering the community of Ames by teaching children and adults the confidence, leadership, and fitness skills that can only be achieved through martial arts.

Taekwondo is the style of martial arts practiced by Family Martial Arts Center of Ames students.
The journey from White Belt to Black Belt is one of incremental learning and skill development, that students of any age and fitness level can embark on.
One of the most fun parts of martial arts training is the ability to test your skills by competing in a tournament. Tournaments are not only fun for competitors, but they also become a great social experience for parents as well!
From sparring to forms to team demos, these awesome competitions are not only a place where our students can test their skills, but also a place where team spirit is built, fears are overcome, and character is developed. Most importantly, they are tons of fun!
