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!!

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.

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.

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!!

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

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.

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!

Head Instructor

A Few Words

From Virginia DeYoung

I’m Virginia DeYoung, Head Instructor here at Journey Martial Arts.

As a martial arts instructor with extensive experience training kids, there is nothing better than seeing them grow firsthand.

But more important than the martial arts skills they learn… is the personal skills they develop and carry for life.

Because martial arts is so much more than just kicking and punching, and getting the next colorful belt.

It’s about developing confidence, discipline, character, focus and respect.

With every class we teach, your kids are growing in mind, body and character.

That’s because martial arts provides instant positive feedback. Through learning to focus on the core moves, they develop discipline and respect. They can instantly see and feel a difference, making them destined to build confidence, self-awareness and self-respect.

And of course it’s a ton of FUN!

That’s why I love teaching martial arts to kids in this community, and why I know your kids are going to LOVE training.

So please have a look below to find out exactly how your kids can benefit from our fun martial arts classes.

Thanks!

Does Your Child Have

Any of these challenges?

They are great kids but they just don’t listen, often being told to do something a hundred times before they actually do anything.

They’re bright and intelligent, yet have trouble paying attention at home, in school or in any important situation, even being classified as an “ADD” or “ADHD” child.

They are simply shy and lack the confidence and self-esteem needed to live up to their full potential.

The Difficulties of Raising Children Are Near Endless

Luckily there is a comprehensive solution…

There really is a safe, natural and extremely effective way to take charge and positively impact every aspect of your child’s life. It doesn’t take medicine, therapy, harsh actions, or cajoling your kids to change their behavior. Instead, it is teaching your kids self-discipline, hard work, confidence, and respect. This done in a way that empowers them while also teaching them humility, and promoting health and fitness… all at the same time.

Sounds like a wonder cure doesn’t it?

But there really is something that does all that. And that’s the power of martial arts classes.

your child will grow with every class!

Children are like sponges. They absorb things quickly and easily – far more easily than we do as adults. In fact, parents can sometimes see a difference in their kids after just one martial arts class. Each additional class they attend increases their knowledge and growth.

Not only are they getting healthier as they learn martial arts, they’re also learning the value of self-discipline and respect. When you enroll your child in a martial arts class, you’re giving them much more than the physical skills we teach. You’re giving them the opportunity to thrive.

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.
