Martial Arts and Parkour
Alexandria Martial Arts
The Alexandria Lakes Area’s ONLY martial arts school with Live Interactive Online Classes!

This program is a white to black belt level and beyond martial arts program that is designed to challenge you to become the best version of you. Students will begin the program learning basic Taekwondo skills and drills with traditional material for belt advancement.
As a school, we not only want to teach students about the wide variety of martial arts training that exists in the world today but also give them the skills they may need to keep themselves safe for any number of attacks and threats. We know that we will not be able to keep everyone safe but we want to give you a confident base set of skills you can use to stop most threats.
Youth Martial Arts
These programs are for the school-age martial artist who is 4 to 12 years old. This program is not about punching and kicking, it is about building leaders and developing rock-solid mental toughness to survive in today’s strange world. The world will not be the same after COVID-19. As Darren Hardy said recently, there will be a pre-COVID-19 and a post-COVID-19 world and do you want to be part of the post-COVID-19 world that is ready to take it by storm? Are your kids ready to take the world by storm with leadership skills, determination, and the ability to not let difficult things get in the way of success?
Our Level 1 Program for students of at the rank of Beginner through Yellow belt will give students a firm foundation of Taekwondo skills to build upon. Students will learn basic Taekwondo kicks, one-step defenses, and beginner-level Taekwondo patterns.
Each month during the fourth week of the month, students participate in Stripe Testing. This is where students are evaluated on the material they have been learning that month.
Are students guaranteed to earn their stripes each month? No, they must demonstrate they can perform their techniques to a level of proficiency adequate for their current level. The fourth week of the month is Stripe Testing week and all students are evaluated on their material for the month. White belts have a lower proficiency requirement than yellow belts.
Each student will earn the necessary stripes for their rank advancement. Once they have earned the stripes necessary for advancement. They graduate to the next level. Rank Graduations are included in the monthly tuition cost as well as all stripe evaluations.
Level 1 includes the following ranks and stripes to achieve the next rank:
- White – 3 stripes
- Orange – 3 stripes
- Orange Trim – 3 stripes
- Yellow – 3 stripes
