Children’s Martial Arts (Ages 5-8)


“Not just another activity.. an opportunity to gain life skills and confidence!”

“My husband and I have been bringing both of our children to AHMA for a few years now! Both Master Melissa and Master Art have been caring and wonderful. We see AHMA as not just another activity for our kids but an opportunity to gain life skills and confidence! We highly recommend them to anyone looking for a martial arts studio, adult or child!” – Sara Wilbert

Building Confidence. Creating Leaders. Developing the Future.

Our Award-Winning Children’s Program is carefully structured to help young men and women succeed in our academy and more importantly, in life. Our classes are fast-paced, fun, educational and motivational with personalized instruction from teachers who truly care about your child’s success.  Everyday we are eager to get on the mat with our students and help them achieve milestones they never thought possible, help them create themselves, better themselves and watch their confidence soar. We pride ourselves in our personalized instruction. No two students are the same, therefore no two students should be taught the same.  Knowing each student to their core and understanding the perfect balance for them as individuals is the key to their success. Teaching from the heart is the only way we know and the only way we’ll ever do it.

Our Unique Curriculum Keeps Students Motivated

Our children’s curriculum is a fun blend of blocking, striking, and kicking derived from traditional karate, but also includes elements controlled of self defense from different types of grabs.  Classes are filled with drills and exercises that will develop your child’s attention span and abillity to follow instruction.   In a short time you will begin to see improvement in their self esteem, attitude, attention span, balance, flexibility, coordination and so much more. When they begin to feel their progress they will beam with pride and start to see that hard work can be fun!

Together We Will Acheive Success

We recognize that in a child’s life, their parents are the greatest teachers they could have.  We are fully committed to and are highly successful in supporting our parents’ efforts to develop extraordinary young men and women.  When we work as a team, dedicated to your child’s individual needs, your son or daughter will acheive their personal best and success in every area of life.


“It gives her such a sense of pride and accomplishment.”

“Enrolling our 6 year old daughter, Olivia, at Art Hinkelbein Martial Arts Academy was a wonderful decision. She is so proud of all that she has learned and is eager to learn more. It gives her such a sense of accomplishment and pride. Master Art and Master Melissa both show such compassion and interest in each child in the class and make Olivia feel so special. We would recommend the school to anyone interested in increasing their strength, self confidence and overall well-being.” – Crystal & Brian Kurtz
