“Great instructor with a great atmosphere to work on your craft.”
“He offers family packs and takes self defense seriously.”
“Transformed my child into a gentleman with self defense abilities”

this place is growing, more and more talented fighters are coming in. The instructor Sean and Jacob both are really good with hands on teaching and showing you the fundamentals kickboxing and mma.
I can’t recommend going to this gym. Sean, the owner will have you sign a 12-month membership just to try a class and threaten to use an attorney if you wish to cancel. Please read the contract before you sign it. You’ll have to move 50 miles away or die if want to cancel and even then you need a 60-day written notice which means you’ll have to pay for another 2 months, plus a cancellation fee.
In my case, I never went to a single class but Sean refused to let me cancel even after paying two months of fees. You may be better off going to another gym in Lexington.
My son has been training here for about 22 months, he started here with no striking experience at all and has already won a national championship and finished 3rd at the worlds. Highly recommended and Sean is great with kids.

“The owners/instructors are the nicest people that you can encounter.”
“Excellent staff–family environment.”
“Wonderful atmosphere for the entire family.”
Such a great environment with a ton of cool people. The owner Jamal is such a cool dude that always treats us Jiu jitsu guys with open arms and we all really appreciate it
Great place for students to gain self awareness and confidence. All the while gaining a whole new support team to help them through to good and bad times in life. Teachers and fellow students become family here!!! We couldn’t have found a better group of people to help train our kids and become part of our extended family. Our family loves it at L.A.M.A!!
I would highly recommend LAMA! The instructors come highly qualified and encourage you to learn with group and individual instructions. My son began as a lil LAMA and is now a black belt! He loves it and doesn’t want to miss a class. I am so happy with his growth as a person and his achievements! I encourage you to stop by and give it a try!

“It’s been a great experience and an honor to be part of Mr.Nelsons class .”
“Mr. Nelson and his team are great teachers.”
“I’ve been with him for 9+ years and wouldn’t trade any other teacher for him”
It’s been a great experience and an honor to be part of Mr.Nelsons class .
Mr. Nelson taught our kids and now our grandson. This school is great !
Nelson’s Taekwondo is the best place to learn the fantastic martial art of Taekwondo! But it’s not just about the art. It’s learning who you are as a person and developing yourself into a better person. Master Nelson is a great instructor who truly cares for his students; both in class and outside of class.
His program is geared to make every person think on a greater scale of their development as a person and martial artist.
I started 10 years ago, after my son started. I have two sons in Master Nelson’s program and could not be happier, knowing they are learning valuable lessons of self defense as well as becoming great citizens. My family and I are proud students of Master Nelson and I am glad I can also call him my friend.

“Great experience, friendly service
“The memberships are reasonably priced, I highly recommend checking it out.”
“Love the staff and people I train with.”
One of the best experiences ever. Really good coaches, especially if you’re a procrastinator. They’ll motivate you! Amazing & practical techniques that, once learned, makes you feel safer and better about yourself. Highly recommended.
Very approachable staff. Everyone is welcome. Incredible teachers. Classes are fun and straight to the point. Awesome workout too. Lessons are available for all levels of skill. Highly recommended for anyone interested in self-defense.
My daughters and I have attended their Get Home Safe seminars, and they are outstanding! They focus on psychological/body language techniques first and move from there to more physical maneuvers, and we practice, practice, practice! It’s very hands-on and active. In addition, the staff is extremely knowledgeable and experienced but also very friendly and approachable. I highly recommend these classes for women of all ages!
Karate For Kids, Champion Martial Arts
Champions Martial Arts classes are the highlight of our week. Our whole family gets excited when it’s class time. Being able to share this learning experience has brought us closer and gives more opportunities to bond as a family. It’s great exercise and the way Senior Master Moberly and the instructors teach class helps reinforce our family core principles; honor, respect for others and your self, doing your best and helping others. There are few things I know of that allow a family to advance and grow with one another in the way that martial arts does.
