Does your teen need
They make hasty, poorly-considered decisions and need to have better judgment.
They’re being bullied at school – or they’re the one doing the bullying. They don’t get enough exercise or need to lose weight.
They have low self-esteem and seem to be down all the time. They give up when things get difficult and fail to meet their goals.
Raising a teenager requires persistence & patience
It can test your sanity even at the best of times. Yet, you want the best for your teenager. You want them to have the tools they need to succeed now and later in life – and you’d like that to happen without having to pull out all your hair in the process. Getting them to do anything you want them to do can feel utterly impossible, and you’re not sure where to start.
Studying martial arts helps kids learn how to overcome their problems and learn important lessons – the kind of lessons that will follow them to your home, to the classroom, and for the rest of their lives.
your teen will grow with every class!
Teenagers who study martial arts learn the benefits of self-control and discipline with every lesson. Our classes emphasize core values like discipline, respect, and persistence. Students learn that the way they treat others – in and out of the dojo – reflects on them as people and affects their ability to achieve their goals.
Virginia is an amazing person strong loving and caring. As true martial artist always is.
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!
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!
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.
Beautiful and clean facility with AMAZING and HIGHLY MOTIVATING instructors!! I would highly recommend this Martial Arts Academy. Five Stars all the way!
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!!
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.
