Donation Based Martial Arts for Adults

RVA Martial Arts is a Richmond, VA martial arts studio that teaches karate and self-defense exclusively to adults. All classes are on a pay-as-you-go/donation basis.  We welcome both beginner and advanced students and all classes let you learn in a beginner-friendly training environment.

Our program is contact based, which means you will be working with a live partner from the start. Not only will you learn the techniques but you will feel how to apply them in dynamic, motion-based drills that develop real skills quickly.

About Us

We currently train Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 6:30 pm to 8:00 pm. Classes are held at 1909 W. Cary St, located in The Fan in the strip of shops across from the BP gas station. There is a suggested donation of $5 to $15 dollars. Wear whatever clothes are comfortable for working out and bring a water bottle. Gentlemen are strongly encouraged to wear a cup, which can be purchased at the school or any sporting goods store. No more protective gear is required but shin pads and gloves are available for sale to improve your comfort.
