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!

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 dealing with

Any of these troubles?

You have a hard time sticking to a workout plan, you are extremely busy, and your energy levels are down.

You’re tired of running and walking on treadmills and stair steppers and you know you should be improving your health, but you don’t know what’s the best way.

You look at yourself in the mirror and know you can be better and feel like you are in a rut.

Forming Healthy Workout Habits is difficult!

Which is why we offer Fitness Kickboxing…

We recognize the flaws and mind-numbing boredom that can come along with some other gym-bound activities. Here at Journey Martial Arts, we have designed classes to work your butt off, but it will feel effortless because of how much fun you will have and how engaged you will feel with other participants. Even better, unlike aerobics class, the moves in Fitness Kickboxing have some real-life application. As you punch, jab, and protect your face from an imaginary attacker, you’re learning to protect yourself. By practicing these simple self-defense moves in our fun atmosphere, you will gain a greater sense of empowerment and self-confidence.

This will not be easy, but once you start to see the results, you will begin to get that sexy, empowering feeling back that you have been desiring.

Results and growth with every class!

FAQs

Do I need to be in shape before I start Kickboxing?

Short answer; absolutely not! We have members of all health and fitness levels, and our classes are designed to fit around each one of these levels.

The only thing we ask is that you bring your best attitude when you come to one of our classes. If you have the mental framework determined to become physically healthy, that is all we want to see. Our trainers will help you get into the best shape of your life!

Do I need any kickboxing experience?

No, we love teaching new members. There is no better way to gain respect from our community than someone who has the will to join our class without any experience. If you can take that first step, you have already proven to our group that you are a strong-minded individual. We will teach you everything you need to know.

Does the physical training include weights or machines?

Most of the training comes from the natural, isotonic, aerobic, anaerobic, and isometric exercises, although, some weight training may be recommended or used. These exercises help our members with losing weight and toning the whole body; our focus is for you to develop speed, flexibility, and force.

What should I wear or bring?

Sweats and a T-shirt, or yoga attire, work best. You’ll also want to bring a towel and a bottle of water. And of course bring the mental attitude that you’re going to kill this workout!

How often should I attend classes?

We understand how busy your life can be; we would love to see you at least once a week. We believe once a week will be a good start for you to build your overall endurance and capability to implement the basic kickboxing moves.

Once you have built the basic foundation of the Kickboxing moves, we encourage you to then increase the amount of frequency and intensity of your workouts. We want you to go at your own pace, but make sure to challenge yourself to see the best results.
