What we offer

Our martial arts and fitness classes are aimed at all levels and all ages. We start our martial arts journey at 4 years old in our AMA (applied martial arts) Mini Ninjas class. These classes focus on fitness, coordination and discipline, as well as an introduction to self defence and martial arts. 

From here, we progress to our AMA Juniors aged 7-13 where classes delve deeper into the martial arts while keeping levels of fitness and discipline up.

Finally our adult classes are split between regular classes, ladies only classes and beginner courses. All focus on martial arts, self defence and fitness training through our unique applied martial arts program – so no matter what you are looking for, we are sure we can help you at Empower Martial Arts Academy Lincoln.

I joined this class as I would feel unsafe on nights out in the city. After my first class I felt more confident and safer. Dan and his team are skilled at what they do and teach well too. Somehow they combine technique with a laugh as well! Absolutely recommend, thanks Dan and the team!
