From listening skills to taking turns, our program for ages 3-4 teach way more than physical skills! Your child will learn how to interact in a social setting, plus learn valuable life lessons that will help them as they grow.
There's nothing more satisfying than watching your 6-7 year old gain physical and social skills that you know will benefit them for life. Your little one will learn focus, self-confidence and discipline, while getting a full body work out. Preschool Martial Arts teach fantastic martial arts moves plus vital interpersonal skills.
Martial Arts is one of the best possible activities for children. They'll learn to defend themselves physically, but more importantly they'll build the mental and emotional skill sets necessary to conquer challenges like high school, college, and becoming a healthy, balanced adult.
Martial Arts is the perfect activity for teenagers! It gives them an outlet for their unique energy through engagement and gross motor skill activity, but at Birmingham Martial Arts, they'll do it in a structured class designed and taught just for them.
Whether it's losing weight, building muscle, learning to defend yourself, or just having a blast, our Adult Martial Arts classes have what you need. You'll love the high energy class instruction, your body will love the awesome workout, and your spirit will love the camaraderie and positive atmosphere.
Krav Maga is as "real-deal" as it gets. Krav is the official fighting system for the IDF, or Isreali Defense Force, one of the toughest and most feared fighting forces in the world. In our Krav classes, you'll learn fool-proof defenses from all kinds of attacks - even those including knives and guns.
From setup to clean up, we have you covered! Your child and their friends will play games, be entertained, and even learn real martial arts moves. Parents say it's one of the most unique and coolest parties they've ever been to!
The best in Trussville
Our programs were created for real family schedules. Convenient class times mean that kids, adults, and whole families can improve their quality of life without killing every moment of spare time.
Our positive atmosphere is contagious, and you'll know without a doubt that you're in a place where kids will learn positive habits and adults will make meaningful, lasting friendships.
All of our programs improve physical prowess, and that's important. But what's far more important is the mental and emotional benefits that our programs bring to everyday life.
Both kids and adults will gain flexibility, agility, and strength, even if they aren't athletic! They'll love it, because it's not only super fun, it’s inclusive and accommodating at every step.

It's so much fun! At Birmingham Martial Arts, we know that getting your child out of the house, in the car, and across town to an activity is a big deal. We guarantee that when they leave, it will have been 100% worth it, every time!
Programs built for real people
Our classes were designed specifically for the average person. You'll build skills step by step, without having to be a superstar to see improvement. But stick with it, and you'll see your abilities soar!
You'll will be surrounded by peers striving towards the same goals you are, day in, day out. You'll build friendships and be supported in your individual journey.
We've always known it, but now the science agrees: You must take time for your own mental health. Martial Arts helps you clear your mind, accomplish goals, and be more healthy, from the inside out.
It's more than just learning awesome looking moves - it's proprioception, balance, agility and more - physical skills that will remain with and benefit you for the rest of your life.
We send regular anonymous surveys to our members in our program. Here's a sample of the real feedback we get regularly:
My daughter started here about a month ago and I cannot say enough about the wonderful team they have there. They truly love and take great pride in the work they do for and with these children. My daughter is so pumped to go to practice it kind of surprised me because after a few times at something she can tend to loose interest but not with this. I not only give her credit for this but the people at BMA. I could not be happier with deciding to join their program.
My kids have been a part of the BMA family since April 2021, and yes I say family cause they welcomed us right away. The owners, staff and instructors have all been amazing. My son, 11 and Daughter, 6, have ready learned soo much. My son has ADHD, the confidence and self discipline has been soo much better since we've joined. The instructors all know my kids by name, know their personalities and I love that if there are struggling in school or everyday life, I can ask them to speak with my child on a whole other level. The program overall is great! My family looks forward to the years to come.
Birmingham Martial Arts is the favorite choice of Trussville families for their childrens' and teens' physical, mental and emotional development Plus there’s no better facility for adults to improve their physical health and mental wellness. Schedule a trial today!
