Martial Arts

Martial Arts allows children and adults to develop their spirit, mind, and body through discipline in an encouraging, non-intimidating, and family friendly environment. Our instructors are among the best in their respective martial arts and will ensure that participants learn the value of hard work, discipline, honor, integrity, and respect for themselves and others.

At the YMCA of Coastal Georgia, we want to make everyone’s development and safety a top priority. You and your child will learn the abilities of restraint, focus and control. We offer multiple types of martial arts for everyone. Classes and ages vary per location.
