About Richmond Martial Arts
If each form of martial arts and self-defense was a different musical instrument, then Johnny Ahmed would be a one-man orchestra, one where every note could shatter a plywood board. For more than 23 years, Mr. Ahmed has immersed himself in the world of martial arts—he's mastered kickboxing and Muay Thai, earned a 6th degree black belt in Taekwondo and a blue belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, and has become certified in Bas Rutten MMA. In fact, Bas Rutten himself even visited Mr. Ahmed's studio, Richmond Martial Arts.
The majority of visitors to Richmond Martial Arts, however, aren't master fighters. Mr. Ahmed and his fellow instructors work with adults and children of all levels, starting with students as young as two years old. Their kid-focused programs work to build discipline, social skills, and confidence, as well as keep kids fit and active. Instructors also host specialized "Bully Proof" workshops, helping little ones avoid harassment at school. Adult and teen programs, meanwhile, split off into specific martial arts. Instructors teach disciplines such as Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Muay Thai kickboxing, and Taekwondo: a full-body workout that instills balance, strength, and flexibility. Regardless of the chosen program, the faculty helps students stay in shape and learn practical, real world self defense.
