Apex Martial Arts
Given all the medals they’ve accrued in international competitions, you’d think the instructors at Apex Martial Arts would dedicate more space to a trophy case. Instead, owners Milo and Marcy Hilario opted for 1,200 square feet of open mat space and a roped-in, 18’x18’ boxing ring, ideal for imparting their vast stores of competition-level experience. Named Richmond’s top martial-arts school for three years, Apex teaches through hands-on instruction and attention to technique. Instructors emphasize the proper leverage behind successful jiu-jitsu holds, or personally demonstrate a coy tickle to the trachea or the hip shifts that power a devastating right cross punch. Students stretch and cool down after class, talking shop in a modern lounge appointed with black-leather couches and a flat-screen TV.
