Beautiful and clean facility with AMAZING and HIGHLY MOTIVATING instructors!! I would highly recommend this Martial Arts Academy. Five Stars all the way!

Journey is a place of positive energy and growth! The owner, Virginia's extensive experience in martial arts and as a mom of five means that your children will be challenged and supported as they take classes. And as a mom myself, I love taking classes from her because she creates an atmosphere of support and friendship that is motivating. If you want to get in shape in a fun and positive community, join Journey! If you want your children to be active, learn, and have fun, join Journey!

My son started training with Virginia as a pre-schooler and until K, only because we moved out of state. Initially, we just wanted to have him spend some energy, but we got much more than that. I loved her approach to discipline and values, and that she included parents on every class. My son responded so well to her style. Then my husband and I joined Virginia’s kickboxing class. She is an amazing instructor and great person to have around. I personally benefited greatly from her class; it was an outlet and I grew stronger, physically and mentally. We miss her classes so much. We highly recommend Virginia and her business.

I've never met a more humble, inspiring, and dedicated leader who has such a respect for martial arts and its core values- living by example. Virginia DeYoung, founder of Journey, is passionate about sharing the Journey we all walk together, pulling from its strength and finding common ground in its challenges. Her vision is shared through her children's programs and adult programs alike- includes Karate-Kempo and Kickboxing. This is a martial arts school that focuses not only on building knowledge, strength, fitness, and awareness through the discipline, but also building on the morals of living the "journey" knowing that the power you gain is not in the final destination but in the journey you make along the way. I highly recommend as a current student and hope to see you there!

Amber B.

Virginia is amazing. She was so welcoming to me and my family. Her facility is clean and very comfortable. We attended a bday party there along with classes. The bday party was so much fun for the kiddos. She did such an awesome job keeping the kids interested and they did so much in the few hours if the party! She also did a parents night out which is awesome as a single mom!!

Colleen S.

Ms. Virginia is fantastic with the kids. She takes the time to get know each of her students personally and works with each student to bring out the best in each of them. My son has thrived at Journey. Journey has strengthened his confidence not only in himself but in his martial arts. The studio is very welcoming and you feel like family right when you walk in the door. I would recommend anyone looking to start their marital arts journey to go to Journey.

Alysha R.

My daughters and I have been taking classes with Ms. Virginia for a few years, karate for the girls and kickboxing/max HIIT classes for myself. We all love the energy and focus brought to every class along with the awesome sense of community. The life skills incorporated into every class mirror the values and lessons we discuss at home.

Shannon I.

Thrilled to be part of the JMA family! Such a welcoming and open environment. My daughter has FINALLY found a sport that she enjoys and begs to go to every week. Thank you Ms. Virginia!!

Kaye P.

Virginia, the owner of Journey Martial Arts, is exceptional in her knowledge, experience and enthusiasm. I highly recommend Journey Martial Arts!

Kimberly K.

I've been taking the 6am MaxHtt classes with Virginia since this past winter, each classes is different which keeps them interesting. Her dojo is very clean, welcoming and in a very convenient location. When the Covid crisis hit she immediately offered virtual classes and continues to do so which I am very greatful for, allows me to continue class without interfering with my work schedule. Thank you!!

Jessica G.

Journey and Miss Virginia has been a wonderful experience for my son and our family! When COVID hit, she immediately offered other options and didn't skip a beat- even offered socially distant driveway lessons! My son has grown in his Martial arts, but also his character. Highly recommend!

Kristen E.

Virginia has been absolutely amazing with my kids, especially catering to their special needs and incorporating trauma informed care into her 1:1 lessons with my daughter.
The birthday parties she hosts are also phenomenal. I would highly recommend Journey Martial Arts for lessons and parties for your family.

Jennifer H.

Journey is amazing. Ms. Virginia is professional, kind, and compassionate. She has taught our daughter virtually during the pandemic karate and how to be a kind person. This place is one of a kind and we are thrilled to be part of it.

Aimee H.

Virginia is so patient and kind with our children. She does a good job focusing kids' energy and pushing it toward quality activities.

You can tell the passion that Virginia has for what she does in her enthusiasm and care.

Head instructor Virginia DeYoung is literally amazing. She has a very well decorated resume when it comes to martial arts. She has taught thousands of kids and has an amazing program. She consults other school owners from around the world with her ability to teach to young children and she is literally an expert in it. As a school owner myself I own a martial arts school and I wouldn’t learn from anyone else if I lived here. If you haven’t tried her classes, do it!

Are you struggling to come up with

something new and fun for your child’s birthday party?

You’re tired of the same old ideas and you want to do more than hit the party store to buy themed napkins.

You’re busy with work and other obligations and you don’t have the time to spend hours planning an elaborate party.

You want a party atmosphere that’s fun and safe for kids – and where you have some help supervising them.

Planning your child’s birthday party can feel more like work than fun

LUCKILY THERE IS A COMPREHENSIVE SOLUTION…

You have to assemble a guest list, buy decorations and a cake, plan activities, accommodate adult guests, and deal with a house full of over-excited kids.

Instead of taking everything on your shoulders, it’s time to try something different this time. Provide your child with the kind of birthday party that they’ll remember for years to come – and that their friends will remember, too.

The perfect solution for busy parents

Martial arts-themed birthday parties are the perfect solution for busy parents. We’ll do most of the planning for you, and provide you with a safe, fun environment where your kids and their friends can learn some basic martial arts moves and experience the thrill of being in a real martial arts school.

Kids have an outlet for their birthday energy

Rain or shine, your child’s birthday party in our martial arts school will provide them with a healthy way to burn off excess energy and deal with the excitement of the day.

Let us do the heavy lifting

You’ll have to decide who to invite and do a few other things, but we’ll handle the bulk of the planning. You can show up knowing that your child will have plenty to do!

Leave the set-up and clean-up to us

Setting up for (and cleaning up after) a kids’ birthday party can eat up your entire day. When you let us host your party, you can leave all of that to us – so you can relax and enjoy your child’s special day.

Education and fun wrapped into one

Martial arts-themed birthday parties are great fun whether your child has studied martial arts before or not. We’ll provide some basic instruction and fun activities – and your child and their friends will learn something new while having a blast.

Virginia is an amazing person strong loving and caring. As true martial artist always is.

    FAQs

    How much of the planning will I have to do?

    We can’t decide who to invite, and there are a few other details that you’ll need to be involved in, but we’ll take care of planning activities, providing supervision and instruction, and handling the set-up and clean-up for the party.

    Who will be supervising the party? I don’t want my child’s friends’ parents to be worried.

    Experienced martial arts instructors will be on hand to make sure that kids learn in a safe and carefully supervised environment.

    My child loves martial arts but I’m not sure about their friends. Will they have fun, too?

    Of course! Even kids who have never studied martial arts can find something to love at our parties. They might discover that they have a real gift for kicking and punching (in a controlled environment.)

    I don’t want my child to learn that violence is acceptable. Won’t giving them a martial arts party make them think it’s okay to be aggressive?

    Not at all. Martial arts instruction teaches that students must respect instructors, one another, and themselves. We never encourage aggression in or out of our martial arts school.

    I’m worried that my child will be bored. Is the whole party like a martial arts class?

    No. Basic martial arts instruction is part of the fun, but we also provide kids with fun activities and games during the party. Nobody will be bored.

    What if my child decides they want to take martial arts classes after the party?

    We’d be thrilled to have your child as a student. We can provide you with information about age-appropriate classes to take home and review at the end of the party – and the same goes for your child’s friends’ parents, too.
