Learn how to protect yourself & your loved ones. Get in great shape at the same time.
Bet you thought our Wake Forest martial arts school was just a super cool place to get fit and learn self-defense... the truth is it's so much more.
As you get physically fit, you’ll also experience some changes most of our students are NOT prepared for. Especially our younger students. They are absolutely blown away by the subtle changes that happen when you train in our programs.
Below are a handful of those life-changing experiences people walk away with. We can’t wait to hear what kind of positive experiences you can add to the list as well!
Learning new skills and trying out new techniques is challenging! But when you persevere in the face of a challenge, and come out on top, you realize you're stronger and more capable than you ever thought possible!
Realizing this makes you feel more confident. You feel more sure of your ability to handle whatever other challenges life throws your way too. Both kids and adults feel their self-esteem and confidence soar quickly!
Since the techniques are new, they require your full attention. As you concentrate hard on listening to the instructor, following along with what they taught you, and then remembering what you learned when you get home...
...the intense concentration starts to naturally flow. It pours into all other areas of your life including work, school, and even other activities and sports you do for fun.
Adults are able to focus better at work, reaching goals easier while kids report doing better in school all around.
Whether you’re an elite athlete looking for a competitive edge or if you’re a total beginner and think a burpee is a bodily function, we take pride in meeting all of our students where they are. Our passionate and caring instructors work with YOU to meet your fitness goals.
In a positive and motivating environment, you’ll get a great workout, practice dynamic martial arts specific conditioning, and have a blast. Before you know it, the class is over, and you not only learned powerful martial arts...
... you got a great workout, too. Being physically fit boosts energy, mental clarity, and confidence as well.
What do you think of when you hear the word community? We think of a group of like minded students, struggling through tough training times together, celebrating successes together, and encouraging each other no matter what. We think of teamwork and truly belonging no matter what your background is.
We're a tight-knit group here and our students are all about support. We provide the kind of environment that fosters friendship, encouragement, and motivation.
Ugh...fitness can be so boring! Luckily, we’re working out like super-star martial artists. Learning to use our entire body to protect ourselves and our families. In our awesome classes you’ll tighten up your core, gain lean muscle on your legs and arms, and have a blast.
No two workouts are ever the same and we DON'T use military style yelling or body shaming. After all we want you to have a ton of fun here, and keep coming back. Plus, our instructors know they’ll get the best possible performance out of you when you’re in a good mood. That’s when we’re at our best too!
Kids and adults both work hard, and play hard. Laughing and smiles are part of every class.
In this day and age, it can be hard to find bonding time for you and your kids. Especially when you've got work, they've got school, and everyone's tired at the end of the day! We've now got a great solution for you that will not only bring you and your little ones closer - it'll also teach you self-defense, improve your health and fitness, and build great traits like discipline and focus, too.

These Wake Forest Krav Maga classes are not just martial art classes! They were developed out of the mid-1930s Jewish history in a time of great need. Imi Sde-Or, a pro boxer and wrestler of Eastern European Jewish origin, used to defend Jewish citizens against anti-Semitic thugs in Bratislava on the street. He took his experience as an Olympian and street fighter and developed Krav Maga.
Imi Sde-Or developed Krav Maga after realizing that the "real world" had no place for sport fighting. That's why Krav Maga techniques focus on self-defense by using natural instincts of the body for self-protection. Our Wake Forest Krav Maga classes will put you in great shape for self-protection too.
