Woodbridge martial arts

The Better Kids Institute has identified the top Woodbridge martial arts schools for kids and families in the Woodbridge VA area, which are listed below.

Our goal is to help parents bring up better children. One element of our mission is to identify the best child-development resources in local communities throughout the United States within eight categories — including martial arts. You can search all of the resources we’ve identified in and around Milwaukee WI from the home page of this website.

This page is dedicated to listing the seven martial arts schools which we believe are the very best in the Milwaukee area (countries of Milwaukee, Ozaukee, Waukesha, and Washington) for kids and families.

There are myriad styles of martial arts taught, including karate, taekwondo, kung fu, and jujitsu, which differ in their emphasis on kicking, punching, and throwing. In selecting the schools listed below, we did not consider the style of martial arts taught since any style can be appropriate for kids and families.

What we did consider in making our selections are the attributes of a martial arts school that parents have told us are important to them. Such as:

Friendliness towards kids and families

Level of focus on character development

Professional certifications specific to martial arts

Martial arts instructor credentials

What we did consider in making our selections are the attributes of a martial arts school that parents have told us are important to them. Such as:

UMS Martial Arts

Woodbridge martial arts


By the token of time, both children and adults are tested. Whether as a hobby or as a sport, the classes are tailored to one’s skillset. For instance, a child of age 6, wouldn’t be required to do a tornado kick. In both, Tae Kwon Do and HapKido there is a good ratio of quality of instruction time. Also, the Afterschool Program has recently added a limousine to their arsenal. In short, both the Tae Kwon Do classes and Afterschool Program both are a beacon of excellence.

Mission: Our expert Taekwondo instructors always strive for the best and will provide you with excellent instruction in martial arts. Much like karate and MMA, Taekwondo places great emphasis on practical self-defense. In addition, we are located conveniently close to Washington DC and on the boundary of Annandale, Alexandria and Springfield.
