Are you dealing with
It can be difficult to fill up your kids’ days when they’re at home.
Kids need exercise and a healthy way to burn off their excess energy.
Kids’ mental health can be impacted by stressful situations.
Keeping your kids healthy and happy is a priority every day.
When you’re at home and can’t get out – for whatever reason – it can be especially difficult to find ways to keep them active, occupied, and out of trouble. Exercise can help kids in a variety of ways, and when they’re not at school, they still need structure and guidance.
The activities you choose for them should help them both physically and emotionally. The right exercise class can offer all the benefits you want – and give you a break at the same time.
Results and growth with every class!
Virtual martial arts training provides an intense, guided workout that your kids can do from the comfort of your home. They won’t need any special equipment beyond what they’d bring to an in-person class, and you can be sure that they’re reaping the benefits of exercise with the instruction they need – even if you can’t get them to a class.
Physical Activity Improves Kids’ Health
Exercise is an essential element of good health. Kids need physical activity every day – even when they’re not in school or need to stay inside the house.
Virtual martial arts training provides the kind of intense activity that kids need to feel good about themselves. They can stay fit and toned without needing to go to a gym.
Making fitness a priority improves overall health, reducing your child’s chance of suffering from common health problems such as obesity and diabetes.
Structure Helps to Promote Normalcy
Kids don’t have the ability to structure their own lives. They need adults to do it for them – and even the most involved parent needs a break sometimes.
When your kids are at home, it makes sense to find activities they can do while you’re doing other things. Knowing they have a scheduled activity helps kids make sense of their days.
Virtual martial arts training is a scheduled activity that provides kids with the structure and instruction they need. It can be a great supplement to home schooling – or any situation where you can’t get out of the house.
Physical Activity Promotes Good Mental Health
In stressful times, it’s important to find ways to manage anxiety – and that’s true for kids as well as for adults.
There’s plenty of evidence that regular exercise is an essential component of good mental health. Kids who exercise are less likely to experience intense stress – and they’ll be better equipped to stay on an even keel emotionally.
Virtual martial arts classes focus on the mind-body connection, something that can help kids feel grounded mentally and emotionally.
Teach Your Kids the Importance of Discipline
All kids need goals. Without them, they may struggle in school and at home. Behavioral problems caused by a lack of discipline can make kids feel frustrated.
Any type of structured exercise requires discipline. Attending a class – even a virtual one – involves making a time commitment and sticking to it.
Virtual martial arts for kids offers many of the same disciplinary benefits as in-person classes. Kids learn, get tested, and improve with guidance from our experienced instructors.
Amazing place. Very knowledgeable with what they teach.
The Sturgis Academy of Marital Arts family have been wonderful with my daughter she learning so much confidence in herself and respect. I love to watch her on the mat and see her light up when she does something she didn’t believe she could do!! I would recommend this family to anyone.
Bret and Katie are amazing at what they do! They make the experience enjoyable and are very knowledgeable in the training that they give.
Absolutely wonderful with kids and adults I have my wife and my kids all train here and just love it.
Such an awesome atmosphere! Bret, Katie and other instructors do such a good job training. Hands down the best gym around
We simply wanted our son to have an experience with something new and different when we signed him up for classes, and instead, we witnessed something amazing and astonishing emerge from within him that we never before fathomed. Watching him go from timid to intense was a legitimate inspiration to us as parents. This was a direct result from the Hamlin’s outstanding teaching, genuine encouragement, and tangible dedication to their art.
The Hamlins masterfully strike a balance between conveying the serious nature of the training while also keeping it light and fun for the student. My son has been training here since he was 5, now 9, and has made great strides of improvement in discipline and self confidence. The instructors are top notch and they integrate personal growth with the physical training. They teach tenets such as Self-Control, Integrity, Perseverance, Indomitable Spirit, Courtesy, Decision Making, Accountability, and on , and on. The owners are pillars of the community themselves; with Mrs. Hamlin working with the museum and Mr. Hamlin being on the board at the chamber of commerce. Whether you want to learn self defense to protect yourself and your family, get your child involved in an activity that benefits mind body and spirit, you want to get into a competitive sport or you just want a great workout; Sturgis Academy of Martial Arts is a great Decision and starting point. You make the commitment to yourself/ your child and they will commit to showing you the path to your goals.
This is a great place to learn not only self-defense, but things like self-control, confidence, and courtesy for every day life. The instructors are awesome and actually help you learn the techniques the proper way, as well as the effectiveness of each move and break down how they work. They care about every student and each class offers a fun time, great friends, and a good challenge for body and mind.
My son started as a Young Dragon and has grown so much with their help, he just started training in Tae Kwon Do Junior classes and loves every bit of it. It has really helped him focus more in his school and has helped him in so many ways. I myself am a Hapkido student here and love every class. It’s tough but honestly nothing good in life is easy. All the instructors are awesome whether your a little kid or a teenager or even an adult they make learning fun. This is their passion and it truly shows. I’m hoping all my kids will eventually join me in Hapkido when they get older or at least keep with Tae Kwon Do. I would recommend SAMA to anyone. To top it off they have fun events like Parent’s Night Out where you can drop the kids off for a couple hours and maybe have a quick date night. I can’t say enough good things about them.
This place is awesome! My son loves it here and so do we. It’s a great learning environment, I wish every child had an opportunity to train here. They encourage perseverance and help kids get past the fear of failure.
The instructors at SAMA love kids and are such a kid focused company! I am so thankful they are in our community! They do so many great things outside of the SAMA studio as well, I’ve seen them volunteering at the local schools and at many community activities!
This is the best martial arts place around, filled with AMAZING instructor's. They bring in high energy, focus, motivation, confidence, knowledge and so much more! My daughter has gained so much from being here in just a year. The nicest people you will meet! YOU GUYS ROCK!!
I don't even know where to begin on how wonderful this place is! My boys have really grown into empathetic, respectful young men with help from wonderful instructors. It is very much a welcoming atmosphere, if you have any questions or concerns there is always a listening ear and a solution. Thank you guys so much for everything!
Sturgis Academy of Martial Arts is a fun place to meet new people and learn how to protect yourself (self defense) from bullies. The instructors are awesome, kind, fun to be around and care about their students.

They’ll need comfortable, loose clothing. If they already have a uniform from a regular class, they can wear that, but shorts and a tee-shirt will work just as well. It may be helpful to put a mat down to offer a bit of protection.
