Martial Arts


Martial arts is a general term for different traditions of combat practice that exist in many cultures around the world. These traditions teach a combination of self-defense, competition, mental discipline and personal development.

In an effort to serve our athletes, we are excited to develop plans to reopen our sports programs. The Y will follow recommendations from the CDC, Governor Cooper, public school systems, state and local health departments, as well as the North Carolina High School Athletic Association. Please check back here soon for updates on registration.
