Martial Arts

Through our martial arts classes at the Y, children, teens and adults will learn to set and achieve goals, to be respectful, and to grow in self-confidence. These self-defense classes also foster teamwork and caring for others – our quality teaching staff use training methods that build muscle and strength, coordination, balance, agility and flexibility for total body conditioning.

Our branches offer classes in Tae Kwon Do, Judo and Aikido for all age groups and skill levels. Whether it’s you or your child wanting to take a class, or the whole family, we have a class for you!

Our family classes at Somerset Hills YMCA are taught by the American Tae Kwon Do Academy, who has been providing classes at the YMCA since 1993, and has one of the largest and most successful Chung Do Kwan schools in the USA. In this class you can progress from white belt to black belt in a family environment. Pay one price and sign up as an individual member, or two, three, or four family members.
