Virginia Martial Arts Center Reviews

This place is really great! The staff is friendly, knowledgeable and clearly very concerned for both the students' safety, and the enjoyment they get from the classes. They push the kids to excel in a way that develops the kids' own internal motivation, so the students only feel how much they want to be there. The facility is clean, orderly and safe, and all the equipment is clearly well-maintained. We really appreciated how welcomed we have felt ever since the first day we showed up. We only needed about 2 days of our free two-week trial before we knew we would be staying and committing for the long-term.

My boys are part of the after school program here and they love it! Would rather be there learning Karate than at home. They provide a sense of community, safety and a second family.

My son is 5 and absolutely loves it here! Sensai Donna is absolutely amazing and very patient with the children. It’s a very family oriented place. I had checked out 3 other karate places and fell in love with this one. I highly recommend bringing your children here.

Sensei Donna and Hanshi Darren, are fantastic with the kids. My daughter has a blast and has learned alot since joining 2 months ago.

I have recently started taking tai chi here, and absolutely love it. I have previous experience with karate elsewhere, and can tell that the karate taught here is also the real deal. Everyone is extremely welcoming and kind, and the instructors are all very knowledgeable in their art.

Excellent with kids and they teach traditional Japanese Karate, amongst other disciplines.

Our son has been going to this dojo for over 3 years now and we absolutely love it. The facility is great, the staff is awesome, and there is truly a family atmosphere in the dojo. The emphasis on perseverance and respect in addition to the techical aspect of karate has helped our son grow as a person and an athlete. We could not give a higher recommendation. This dojo is truly a place of growth; both physically and mentally.

My kids have been going since they could do power kids. Always a great experience and awesome staff! I love that they teach my kids to defend themselves and to have discipline!

Virginia Martial Arts is great place for kids to learn Karate. They don't realize it but while learning Karate, they are also learning respect, self-confidence, and discipline. The instructors are very knowledgeable and experienced. My son has been going here since the 1st grade and is almost a brown belt now and I wouldn't have changed a thing about his past 7 years at VMAC!
