My son has been taking classes here for almost 6 months and he loves it. He's learning great skills and having a fun time while he does. The instructors are great with the kids and have a ton of patience. We highly recommend East Coast Martial Arts!

Been coming here for over 7 years; started bringing our daughter when she was 3 due to being bullied in daycare. After about 3 weeks with Master Erik, the bullying stopped! Since then, she's loved the sport, loves the school & instructors. She looked like she was having so much fun, me and my wife joined her 3 years ago and now we all are members having a blast in class moving up the ranks and compete together on ECMA's AAU TKD Competition Team. Winning gold medals together at tournaments and competing in The AAU National Championships last year and seeing our little Warrior Princess get her Black Belt was like nothing we've ever experienced. We love our ECMA family...ECMA ROCKS!

Great learning environment, and great people. Whether you want to learn Taekwondo or Jiu Jitsu, the staff is very knowledgeable and well trained. I highly recommend this business.

The facilities in Annapolis are great, including regularly cleaned bathrooms, the two training floors are divided into three areas that allow us to have three different classes going on at the same time. In addition, there is a great seating area for spectators to watch.

If you are looking for a school to start or continue training in martial arts, come check out ECMA! You will not be disappointed!

I have two boys who have been going to ECMA-Edgewater since December. It is the ONLY sport they have ever asked to do and they LOVE it. They ask pretty much every day when the next "Karate Day" is and they are very motivated to do well. The teachers are firm but kind and work well with young kids.

Couldn't ask for a more enthusiastic and motivational instructor. You'll always get a great workout in a great space without am inferiority complex. Everyone is pushed at their own level to achieve their goals. Love the affordability and always different workouts.

As one of the top schools in the country (and maybe THE best), they don't just hand out black belts. Students really have to work very, very hard for them. There are many rungs on the ladder toward black belt, but the instructors are so positive and motivating and encouraging every step of the way. For kids they strive to make the classes fun. For adult students, they are particularly good at acknowledging your limitations, working with you on on them, and helping you learn how to get around and even overcome them. In our late 40s, my husband and I joined a few months after our young daughter started--it was a great way to get our exercise together as a family. Although our daughter eventually decided to stop, my husband continued and earned his black belt after 5 years. I took a year off training as an advanced belt (red senior) for a health issue but then came back motivated to review all the skills and recondition my body for another 18 months to finally earn my own black belt. Such a great feeling of accomplishment, especially as now I'm 53!

Are you struggling to come up with

something new and fun for your child’s birthday party?

You’re tired of the same old ideas and you want to do more than hit the party store to buy themed napkins.

You’re busy with work and other obligations and you don’t have the time to spend hours planning an elaborate party.

You want a party atmosphere that’s fun and safe for kids – and where you have some help supervising them.

Planning your child’s birthday party can feel more like work than fun


You have to assemble a guest list, buy decorations and a cake, plan activities, accommodate adult guests, and deal with a house full of over-excited kids.

Instead of taking everything on your shoulders, it’s time to try something different this time. Provide your child with the kind of birthday party that they’ll remember for years to come – and that their friends will remember, too.

The perfect solution for busy parents

Martial arts-themed birthday parties are the perfect solution for busy parents. We’ll do most of the planning for you, and provide you with a safe, fun environment where your kids and their friends can learn some basic martial arts moves and experience the thrill of being in a real martial arts school.

Kids have an outlet for their birthday energy

Rain or shine, your child’s birthday party in our martial arts school will provide them with a healthy way to burn off excess energy and deal with the excitement of the day.

Let us do the heavy lifting

You’ll have to decide who to invite and do a few other things, but we’ll handle the bulk of the planning. You can show up knowing that your child will have plenty to do!

Leave the set-up and clean-up to us

Setting up for (and cleaning up after) a kids’ birthday party can eat up your entire day. When you let us host your party, you can leave all of that to us – so you can relax and enjoy your child’s special day.

Education and fun wrapped into one

Martial arts-themed birthday parties are great fun whether your child has studied martial arts before or not. We’ll provide some basic instruction and fun activities – and your child and their friends will learn something new while having a blast.

    4 Tips on Building Your Child's Confidence


    How much of the planning will I have to do?

    We can’t decide who to invite, and there are a few other details that you’ll need to be involved in, but we’ll take care of planning activities, providing supervision and instruction, and handling the set-up and clean-up for the party.

    Who will be supervising the party? I don’t want my child’s friends’ parents to be worried.

    Experienced martial arts instructors will be on hand to make sure that kids learn in a safe and carefully supervised environment.

    My child loves martial arts but I’m not sure about their friends. Will they have fun, too?

    Of course! Even kids who have never studied martial arts can find something to love at our parties. They might discover that they have a real gift for kicking and punching (in a controlled environment.)

    I don’t want my child to learn that violence is acceptable. Won’t giving them a martial arts party make them think it’s okay to be aggressive?

    Not at all. Martial arts instruction teaches that students must respect instructors, one another, and themselves. We never encourage aggression in or out of our martial arts school.

    I’m worried that my child will be bored. Is the whole party like a martial arts class?

    No. Basic martial arts instruction is part of the fun, but we also provide kids with fun activities and games during the party. Nobody will be bored.

    What if my child decides they want to take martial arts classes after the party?

    We’d be thrilled to have your child as a student. We can provide you with information about age-appropriate classes to take home and review at the end of the party – and the same goes for your child’s friends’ parents, too.
