Although we still use forms and kicks taught in more traditional Tae Kwon Do, we are exposing our students to a variety of styles like Boxing and Muay Thai for striking and Jiu Jitsu and Wrestling for take downs and basic submissions. More than the training itself, we are interested in character-development: Self confidence, moral behavior, humility, respect, self discipline, courtesy and determination.

What Martial Arts Will Do For Teens
    1 / 3

    Kids nowadays are fixated on their mobile phones and tablets, playing the latest video games and surfing the internet to no end. While that’s all good in moderation, there are certainly better ways to spend time.

    Martial arts provides the perfect distraction from digital media and brings us back to developing what truly matters – our physical, mental and spiritual well-being.

    Martial arts pushes and challenges the mind and body, it paves the way for self-discovery like no other expensive piece of technology can.

    It’s time to put down those mobile devices and strap on a pair of gloves. Martial arts training can bring the fun back to being a physically active human being.


    Teenage years are some of the hardest times in one’s life in terms of socializing. Nowadays, one of the biggest problems in schools is bullying that happens between peers. During formative years, such as your teens, it is very important not to fall victim to bullying. The scars left by these horrific experiences can affect a person for many years to come.

    Through martial arts, teenagers learn how to defend themselves and build their self-confidence. Through the self-defense training that comes with martial arts, children can learn to stand up for themselves and deal with bullies in a non-violent way. This self-confidence allows children to take control of their lives and ensures that they won’t fall victim to this terrible epidemic.


    The human body is a wondrous thing. There is truly no bounds to what we can achieve when we push ourselves to the limit to discover what we are capable of.

    A lot of teenagers who go through puberty are at the stage in their lives when they truly develop themselves physically. As such, it is crucial to steer them in the right direction. Martial arts training does just that.

    Martial arts carefully unleashes the full physical potential of the human body. It brings out the best in people, fostering an environment that is conducive to developing laser focus and incredible work ethic.

    Nothing pushes the human physicality like martial arts training does.


    Martial arts gives teenagers a place where they belong.

    Nowadays kids can find it hard to fit in within a group. The social pressures of being a teenager can sometimes be too hard to bear. Martial arts brings kids closer together, building camaraderie and lasting friendships.

    The time spent at New England Martial Arts witnessing each other’s struggles, and how we overcome obstacles brings a genuine closeness that cannot be manufactured by anything else.

    Ask anyone what the best thing about being a part of a martial arts school is and they will tell you it’s the people they train with.

    More than the physical and mental benefits, the spirit gets a boost of life with the relationships martial arts training builds. It’s more of a family than anything else, and anyone who has ever trained martial arts knows that one of the lessons it teaches is that you really can’t do it all alone.

    Along the way, there are those who will walk beside you, sharing in your defeats and your triumphs. This is what martial arts is all about.

Personal Development: The foundation of our morals, values and core character traits are formed in our earlier years. For this reason, martial arts training with it's emphasis on personal excellence, humility, integrity and nonviolence and it's strong moral core is an essential way to enhance the growth and personal development of children of all ages.

"Great school!. The instructor is great with kids and they learn a bunch of styles like boxing, Muay Thai, Wrestling, Jiu Jitsu and Tae Kwon Do. The adults classes are also great. They break technique down very well and the atmosphere is very low key. So It's a very comfortable place to train." –Mat M.
"Best MMA training! I tried other martial arts, but I've learned more at NEMA in Stoughton than anywhere else. Working with Ben (teacher/instructor) has been a great experience filled with personal attention, patience, expertise, and laughter. Everyone in the school is friendly and helpful. Classes (which are never too large) are beginner-friendly for newcomers and challenging for more advanced students. There's also plenty of quality training equipment to use in class. I continue to enjoy practicing MMA, which includes many different styles of fighting (striking/blocking/groundwork/sparring and more) incorporated into one discipline, so there's always more to learn. Ben's approach to MMA includes mastering basic techniques in a low-stress environment, perfect for people who like to go at any pace, have support throughout, and enjoy a fun yet serious-about-learning setting. A very professional school... Highly recommended!" –Mike Piran
