This is such a great school! They honestly care about you as a person first, not just a member. They also honestly teach you the arts and how to apply it in real life situations. This school dosen’t “sell belts” like other schools in the area; trust me... I did my homework, and did the trials; this is the best school in the area, maybe even Richmond

I have been a student of martial arts for more than 20 years and am a certified instructor in more than one art. I took my 2 young children here 5 years ago, and was impressed by the teaching acumen and the firm but fair attitude of Master Hubley and his cadre of instructors. While it may not be the most “martial” of martial arts schools, the children learn discipline, manners, self-respect, leadership, physical fitness, teamwork and myriad values that aid them them in achieving higher plateaus in their journey of life. Master Hubley is a true master in his mannerisms with children and his martial arts acumen. I am proud to send my children here and will continue to do so because it has been such a positive influence on their lives (self confidence, fitness and overall well being). Not my primary concern, but it is also one of the most affordable and enriching after-school programs available.

Martial Arts of West End has been in my life for 7 years, and has become a passion of mine, I haven't only grown as a person physically, but in other aspects like mentally, morally, and financially. From utilizing strong self defense to beautiful traditional forms and breaking your limits even when you think you can't, Martial Arts of West End is the place to be, with amazing instructors and the one and only Master Erik Hubley, you can accomplish anything. MAWE becomes your family always backing you up and being there for you, I don't know what I'd do without it, I love it!!!

I simply can't say enough about Martial Arts of West End! Each instructor is fantastic and unique and brings their own style and perspective to the common values of the teachings. The family culture is welcoming and inclusive and creates an atmosphere that is always positive, encouraging, and supportive. Going to class several times a week has become a special bonding opportunity for my daughter and me to which we truly look forward. Whatever your motives -- be it learning self-defense, physical fitness, or just a hobby to keep busy -- Martial Arts of West End will no doubt exceed your expectations and help you become the very best version of yourself in the process.

Martial Arts of West End is a fantastic place to train martial arts. Classes are fun, the people are friendly, and the instructors take the time to tailor instruction to the individual. They work with people with any sort of obstacle or challenge to best meet their needs. Training at this school is rigorous and challenging, but it is also accessible to anyone, young or not-so-young, fit or ready to become fit, new or experienced.

I can't say enough about this place. My kids have been there a few years now and I couldn't ask for a better place for them. Master Hubley not only teaches martial arts, but true deep down core values that so many children lack today. He also maintains great relationships and communication with parents. He truly cares whole heartedly for each individual child and their families. For our family martial arts of west end is not just an after school program- they're also a PART of our family

Exceptional, nurturing, empowering, confidence-building, mentally and physically challenging, and so much more. These are just a few of the words I could use to describe this wonderful school.

We were fortunate to become part of the Martial Arts of West End family a few years ago. I had studied martial arts many years earlier, but wanted to begin again and give my kids the benefit of martial arts training. Master Hubley and all the instructors immediately drew us in with their family-friendly program and their genuine interest in our success.

Master Hubley and his team run a wonderful program. They teach kids discipline, respect, self-confidence, and the power of setting/achieving your goals. If you are up for it, they will teach parents the same thing. Join a great program that you can do with your children. Its well worth it.

Martial Arts of West End provides outstanding after school and summer camp care for kids!! We've been members of Master Hubley's school for almost 7 years for two kids and I can honestly say that we've never considered another option once we started! Outstanding in every aspect!

Me and my 5 years old son joined the martial arts seven months back with apprehension because this was our first time but I am happy to say that Master Hubley, Master Davis and all other instructors and members are very cooperating, helpful and patient with us as well as with all other students. I highly recommend this martial art class. This is a great place to learn taekwando.
Front desk staff is also cheerful and helpful. Lots of respect to Master Hubley! Thank you Sir.

Spring Fever

Are your kids getting cabin fever with everything going on?  Looking for some safe springtime fun for your family? You and your kids can celebrate spring, no matter what the weather is or other things that are going on. March 19th is the first day of spring this year and we all look forward to warmer days, flowers and more opportunities to get outside and play. Here are some fun safe springtime activities you and your child can enjoy even if its in your own backyard!

#1: Go on a Picnic: Nothing rings in springtime like going on a picnic as a family. When spring brings a gorgeous day, go outside and savor the sunshine with your kids. If the weather is not cooperating you  can hold a picnic indoors. Just spread a blanket on the floor and enjoy a family meal in your living room.

#2: Bounce a Bubble: Spring is the perfect time to go outside and blow bubbles with your kids. Among the many online recipes for bubbles, check out these fantastic bouncing bubbles from Steve Spangler.

#3: Do an Art Project: Bright and sunny? What a great time to go outside, observe the world around you and get creative. Springtime, with its extra light and ever-changing landscapes, is an extra-special time for art. Indoors or out, encourage your kids to grab a pencil and a piece of paper; an easel, paints and a canvas; or even a hunk of clay and express themselves through art. If it’s rainy and windy outside, pick a project and lose yourselves in the creative process indoors. (Parents enjoy a adult beverage and create as well!)

#4: Turn Flowers Different Colors: What a perfect way to bring nature and color indoors! Try doing this project using several jars in a rainbow of colors. Look for tulips, daffodils and crocuses in your neighborhood.

#5: Fly a Kite: Springtime breezes make it the perfect time to go outside and fly a kite with your kids!

#6: Make a Bird Feeder: Peanut butter + pine cones + birdseed = Bird feeders (If you do not have pine cones, small plastic cups work to!)

#7: Use Sidewalk Chalk: Head outside while it’s sunny and draw something wonderful with sidewalk chalk. Add some water from your garden watering can or a nearby puddle and watch the drawing transform. Then turn it into something new by blending and adding more chalk.

#8: Make a Teepee: Build A teepee or tent for lots of indoor-outdoor fun!

#9: Use Nature to Make Art: Art and spring go hand in hand. Go outside and find whatever flowers, petals and leaves are available in your area, then replicate designs by using simple shapes with a pen on paper.

#10: Plant Something: Planting seeds and nurturing them as they grow is a great indoor-outdoor activity for everyone. Start the seeds inside and transfer them outdoors when they’re large enough. Don’t limit yourself to just planting seeds. Plant started vegetables, flowers or even a tree in the ground with your kids!
