Seattle Martial Arts School

Kids Class Info

Martial Arts Classes & Programs

We offer some of the best martial art classes in Seattle for kids, teens, adults, and families.

Leo’s Notes

We wrote a book! Leo’s Notes is a fun and innovative children’s book which uses the core tenants of the Family Black Belt Academy curriculum as a tool to teach children listening and focus skills through the telling of Leo’s exciting journey accompanying Master Illiana on her quest to become a grandmaster.

Beyond sport & self-defense

Martial arts train the entirety of an individual, developing physical, mental, and emotional strength.

Benefits of Our Program

Seattle's Premier Family Martial Art Community

Emphasizing progress rather than perfection, we challenge each other to strive and be better than we were yesterday, both in and outside the dojo.

I do not train to be better than my neighbor. I train to be better than myself from yesterday.

Kids love our camps!

At our camps, kids learn and practice martial arts techniques, play games that keep them physically active, and even have some free time for unstructured play with their peers. They also participate in conversations and activities that address topics ranging from active listening and building empathy to dealing with bullies and how to overcome peer pressure. As always, our programs are designed to teach kids valuable lessons while making sure they have a lot of fun in the process.
