Overtime's trained youth leaders shepherd kindergarten-age kids through sixth-grade students in gamecentric day camps designed to cultivate teamwork skills and healthy lifestyles at an early age. Battle summertime lethargy by signing up sprouts for one of Overtime’s four day camps, where kids will dribble, spike, slam, and slap shoot their way through myriad team games, including fast-break hoops, batter up, and floor hockey.

It's a scene that's been repeated in countless movies over the years: swarms of attackers descend on the hero, their kicks and punches thwarted by a perfect display of martial artistry. This motif casts a shadow on the aspects of martial arts that don't involve direct combat but are just as valuable. These aspects include community, physical health, and self-discipline, all of which are given their due at Ashburn Martial Arts Center.
At this family-oriented studio with weekly classes for kids and adults, martial arts isn't all about hand-to-hand combat. The instructors make it a point to cultivate the mind as well as the body, and they start by providing a safe, comfortable, and noncompetitive environment for their students. Though their specialties include jujitsu, muay thai kickboxing, and practical weapons training, the jewel of the studio is koryu uchinadi, a modern style of karate that draws on historic combat disciplines.

Karate master Kancho Ninomiya adapted the classic techniques of his favorite fighting style to the needs of modern self-defense, creating the style known as Enshin Karate. The fast-paced style emphasizes constant movement, a blend of kicks and grappling take-downs, and techniques for facing multiple opponents at once. The practical nature of the street-savvy style appealed to a young Nima Mazhari, who discovered a dojo on his way home from school one day.
Mazhari joined the school hoping to learn to fight, but instead discovered the value of a determined work ethic. The lessons he learned in that dojo inspired him to excel in school, pass his college-entrance exams, and pursue his degree. He then decided to share the lessons he had learned with the world. He founded Enshin Karate to not only teach kids and adults his fighting techniques, but to help them discover how to be the best versions of themselves without relying on personality upgrades downloaded online.
