  • Almost Halloween!

    Only a couple more days till Halloween! We are running classes on normal times this week. However on Thursday and Friday we will take some time to enjoy the holiday and play a few extra game with the students. We know many Halloween parties and events have been canceled this year, our own big party included, but we want to give the kids as much to celebrate as we can!

    Stay safe this Halloween. Remember to mask up and if you get any treats from unknown houses, please be sure to put it aside for a week to avoid any accidental spreading!

    Happy Halloween!

  • Have you voted?

    As we have stated we don’t teach or influence politics, but we do encourage everyone to vote!

    Our owner Skip and his wife have, now it’s your turn to let your voices be heard!

    Get the vote out!

  • Marching to Halloween!

    We’re only two weeks off from Halloween! At LWMA we consider Halloween the start of the holiday season. We won’t be having our semi-famous Halloween Party this year 🙁 We are still planning for some fun “trick or treat” surprises for the kids however! We’ll keep you posted on the happening as we get closer.

    Classes are up and running!

    Children and Teens are learning new techniques this week.

    Adults are working some throw combinations and more back control in our CAMBO class.

    Training keeps not only your body healthy but also your mind. Join us and see what it can do for you.

    Happy Halloween!

  • Voting Season

    It’s that time of year when everyone’s mind turns to politics. Lion’s Way Martial Arts wants to remind everyone that as an entity we are non-political. We are not here to teach your kids, teens or even the adults what they should believe. Rather we teach life skills that will encompass all beliefs and encourage the lifestyle you choose to lead.


    We do encourage everyone to vote. The right to vote is the single most important liberty you have as an American. This November, as friends, family, community members, and citizens, we have a duty to make our voices heard and encourage others to do the same.


    Our world is decided by the choices we make. This is your chance to make your voice heard and help lead your community, even the nation, in the direction you desire.
    Please vote and let your voice be heard.

    Sincerely,
    Lion’s Way Martial Arts
