Today’s world keeps getting tougher for teens. Here at Family Martial Arts Center of Ames, it is our goal to create a safe and encouraging learning environment, where they can learn self-defense, discipline, and confidence without being ridiculed for their mistakes. This sense of identity will boost their confidence, resulting in increased assertiveness when dealing with the high-pressure situations they’re faced with on a daily basis.
Our classes are an excellent way for teens to get involved with peers that share similar goals and standards. By expanding their network with positive influences, they'll be able to maintain accountability and increase their social skills.

Building healthy habits early on can help prevent obesity and diabetes later in life.
Belt testing provides an excellent exercise for kids in learning how to set and achieve goals. Their self-esteem will continue to rise with each accomplishment as they watch their hard work pay off.
Complex physical activities such as martial arts have proven to strengthen the brain’s neural networks, helping kids improve their focus and self-control. This can be especially beneficial for kids with ADD/ADHD.
The traditional nature of martial arts teaches kids respect in their classes, whether they are taking a bow or waiting patiently for the next set of instructions. This sense of respect also helps kids improve their grades while improving their listening skills at home and in school.
We have a Martial Arts Monkeys program for ages 4-6, our Tae Kwon Do Tigers program for ages 7-9, and our Teens and Tweens program for ages 10-14 years.
We offer month-to-month memberships, as well as savings on longer plans.

Even though we practice self-defense moves and we do practice some sparring drills, your child will not be "fighting" anyone or getting hurt. Of course there is always potential for injury with any sports activity, however, our instructors take great care to make sure everyone practices at their own pace without getting injured.
Our martial arts classes' primary goal is to make sure our students have fun in a playful, safe environment. Come and see a class for yourself - the kids have a blast and our instructors do too.
