There's nothing more satisfying than watching your 4-5 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 Determined 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.
Kids LOVE Parent's Night Out at Determined Martial Arts just almost as much as parents do! It's the super fun alternative to finding a babysitter - no more stressing about how to get a night for yourself!
The best in Amherst
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.
Amherst Kids agree:
Kids love classes at Determined Martial Arts because they're unbelievably fun (but parents love them because they build benefits for life!)
Everything we do is intentionally structured based on our extensive experience. Kids at Determined Martial Arts actually like the structure, because it makes them feel safe and cared for. They can trust deep down that they're safe to explore and challenge themselves.
We take kids’ emotions seriously. The culture at Determined Martial Arts is one of inclusion - no cliques, no cool kids club, no unkind actions or attitudes. Kids love it because they always feel like they belong!
It's so much fun! At Determined 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. Our classes help you clear your mind, accomplish your 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.

Determined Martial Arts has been like a second family! The support, the care, and the encouragement that is offered, not just from the staff, but also the other participating families is incomparable to any other experience we've had. Mr. Jones meets you where you are and brings you to heights you didn't even know you were capable of. In addition to being a phenomenal school for martial arts, Determined Martial Arts separates itself from the rest by being there for the family as a whole and not just it's students. DMA offers parents night out events, special birthday events and even community building events such as trips to local baseball games. My daughter is thriving both at home and in school as a direct result of the lessons learned through DMA. As if that isn't enough to catch your attention, the cost is affordable, the service is fantastic and the experience is priceless! I highly recommend DMA to anyone considering the chance to be a part of a great community!
Determined Martial Arts has been amazing for my son Jordan and our family! Our son has always wanted to do some form of martial arts. We spent a full year really searching around. We wanted him to not only learn the art, but also learn discipline. Learn how to grow as a person properly with structure. Once we met with Mr. Jed Jones, we knew his studio was the right place! My son is going on his second year and the growth I’ve seen in him has been tremendous. He’s learned how to have confidence within himself, to shut down peer pressure, to prioritize his education, as well as martial arts! He is a child and will always make mistakes, but it’s how he comes back from those mistakes that matters, and that’s where determined martial arts has come in for Jordan. He’s learned how to right his wrongs instead of continuing down a bad path. His instructor Jed Jones has always been there for both jordan and us (his parents). He’s communicative, always willing to help with whatever we need, always working with us when it comes to our crazy schedules and getting Jordan’s classes scheduled. He’s always checking in on his students and making sure they’re feeling good about class. Our son is constantly talking about how encouraging and inspiring Mr. Jones is to him. We couldn’t ask for a better mentor. Determined Martial Arts has easily made us all feel like family and I couldn’t ask for more. We appreciate you Jed and the rest of the community! Thank you for all you do for our boy!
