Physical education is part of your child's overall education
Our Full Day Digital Learning Camp gives your child a physical outlet after a long day of virtual school – and teaches them the value of fitness in a fun setting.
Between learning self-defense in their martial arts class and physical games, our program provides a well-rounded approach to virtual schooling by including that physical component that is critical for both mental and physical health.
Positive, friendly, and welcoming place to spend after school
Don't need our Full Day Digital Learning Camp but are worried about keeping your child busy after virtual school? We've got you covered.

Make New Friends & Have Fun
Now, more than ever, our children are in dire need of socialization. Our programs offer a masked, socially-distant setting that allows your child to share experiences with new friends, spend time with caring adults, and build life-long friendships.
Learn Respect, Discipline, and Persistence
Some virtual learning programs simply offer parents a place to send their children to take their virtual classes without any other benefits. Ours is different.
Life skills critical to success are integrated in every aspect of our program, from martial arts classes to mat chats to focused games and activities.
Children who study martial arts learn respect for themselves and others, discipline in the pursuit of goals, and the rewards of hard work – lessons that carry over to home, school, and beyond.
My son is in the little warriors program. At first I was worried because there were so many children in a class, but class size doesn’t matter for these amazing instructors who teach not only martial arts techniques but also children’s leadership skills, confidence, as well as physical strength. Shortly after joining, my son’s behavior in school started improving by leaps and bounds. Now we are in the midst of covid19 and the instructors have done an AMAZING job of moving programs online through live and recorded classes. The additional fun events like the “kids night in” and challenges really make my son feel like part of a social community. This is one of the best organizations we have ever seen for children. I cannot give Pentagon MMA enough positive remarks. Well done and THANK YOU for everything you do to strengthen our kids bodies and minds. This is not just a class, but a community. Thank you.
My kids studied at Pentagon MMA for several years each. Vivek and the other instructors taught them how to defend themselves, how to defuse tense situations, how to stick up for kids being bullied, how to conduct themselves with maturity and respect for others, and how to be mentally and physically tough. All of these lessons transferred to their lives outside of MMA. They are respectful, confident, and mature young people now. In addition to being proficient at MMA, the mental and physical rigor and determination they learned at Pentagon has been critical in one of them transitioning to collegiate athletics and the other on the way to doing so. The discipline and focus have also led to high GPAs and a drive to succeed. I can't recommend Pentagon MMA highly enough. It's been central to the successful development of my kids.
We enrolled our five-year old in Pentagon MMA's Little Warriors program. Our only regret is that we didn't enroll him earlier. Reluctant to participate and shy at first, he not only learned the fundamentals of jiu-jitsu and self-defense, but also developed self-confidence, self-respect, focus, and respect for others. Highly encouraged for all children.
My son is in summer camp at Pentagon MMA in Arlington. It's fantastic -- he's really happy and they have a very organized and well-run program. In addition to martial arts, they take several field trips (and even had a back-up field trip set up for a rainy day), and do a lot of activities with character-building elements. When I picked him up a few minutes early at the end of his first day, he asked me if he could stay longer and keep playing with his new friends. I'm very impressed with the staff and coaches, and I definitely plan to sign him up again next summer.
My son went to Spring Camp here. We had not seen the facility before we dropped him off the first day so he was a bit nervous (as was I), but within minutes the welcoming staff made us feel comfortable and gave clear directions on how we could jump into the fun. When I picked him up that first afternoon, he said "Mom, you know what I liked about camp? EVERYTHING". He wanted to tell me about his day every day of camp, when I am normally prying it out of him. Huge hit and we will definitely be back.
Pentagon MMA is excellent!!! My 4-year-old son started with the aim of learning self-defence, but he has learnt so much more! His confidence, listening and responsiveness, and focus and concentration have all improved!!! Thanks Pentagon MMA.
I cannot explain how much this has helped my four-year-old daughter. Your head would explode if you heard her shouting "yes sir" and "yes ma'am" around the house for chores. She has taken to the discipline very well and it's helped in her academics and in her social life, not to mention that she is learning to defend herself with some solid foundations.
