Love it here! We tried another place prior but once we tried out CFMA we were hooked!

It’s all because of Ms. Lyon + Mr. Dees. They have set up an amazing environment and are exceptional teachers and role models. My daughters are learning valuable life skills, healthy habits, gaining confidence, and having fun while doing it. I’ve even joined into the class and it's super fun...we now have a new family hobby! I love how the classes include both parents and kids / teens so that everyone can learn alongside each other.

Best decision of 2024 was joining this karate fam!

Since enrolling my son in CFMA, I have noticed a huge build up of confidence, and a greater ability to follow directions.

Highly recommend Charleston Family Martial Arts. Our youngest goes here despite her brothers going through another system. Reason why? The instructors! She fell in love with Ms Lyons from the first minute of the preview class. She made up her mind from there and doesn’t want to turn back. They teach more then kicking. The discipline taught by Mr Dees and Ms Lyon is second to none. If you have any doubts, go meet them in person and try out a class. Kids will come out with discipline and respect, but most of all confidence within themselves to defend and move forward in life.

Program & Pricing FAQs

My child isn't athletic. Can he/she still participate in martial arts?

Absolutely. Martial arts teaches kids to be coordinated, flexible and strong. Kids who don't naturally have these qualities develop them. Kids who do have these qualities develop them even more.

Are these martial arts classes fun?

Yes! After all, these are children we're dealing with here. And kids love their fun. We do a variety of games and activities that have kids laughing and smiling. We work hard here - but we play just as hard.

What's a good age for a child to start martial arts?

Honestly, practically every age is a good age to start! We have young children, as well as teenagers. We also have specific programs for adults. So no matter what age - we've got you covered.

Can martial arts cause injury?

Because we place such a huge focus on safety and injury prevention, we're proud to say that injuries are very few and far between with our program. In fact, because martial arts gets you in great shape, and makes you strong and flexible, people often see LESS injuries in their lives.

Do you have to be in good shape to take martial arts?

Not at all! In fact, many people use martial arts as a way to get in good shape. They come to us out of shape, and quickly become athletic and limber.

Is martial arts violent?

No! Because self-defense technique is taught in martial arts, it's often thought of as violent. However, the philosophies behind martial arts revolve around peace and harmony. The moves are more of a way to become connected with your body. We teach diplomacy and friendship. However, if a violent situation ever arises in your life, you'll have powerful tools to defend yourself and your loved ones.
