Challenge Yourself with Martial Art Classes

Are you looking for a full-body workout that's both challenging and fun? Consider taking martial arts classes! They're a great way to improve your strength, stamina, and flexibility.

The best martial arts studios near our downtown Lincoln apartments include:


Aikido of Nebraska is a modern facility with a traditional flare. Chief Instructor Todd Roberts takes pride in offering a zen-like atmosphere you won't find anywhere else. He teaches you to protect yourself without using aggressiveness and strength. Since Aikido cannot be practiced without a partner, students often make new friends.

Every class is full of fun and laughter, and everyone can progress at their own pace. Sessions take place throughout the week, and they start with warm-up exercises and instructor demonstrations. New students can enjoy their first class for free.


At Swanson's Martial Arts, students move through the ranks of taekwondo. Founders Jason and Nicole Swanson began training in 1988. They hold seventh- and sixth-degree black belts respectively and have taught in Lincoln since 1995. Their programs help improve focus, coordination, and confidence.

Students start with a white belt with next-level testing every three months. White through high green belts train together, and classes are offered six days a week.


Owned by a brother and sister duo, Chung Do Kwan welcomes everyone from hobbyists to seasoned athletes. The siblings have over 40 years of combined experience and blend traditional taekwondo forms with techniques from other disciplines. The classes are small and focus on power, balance, and flexibility. Students enjoy individual attention based on their skills and areas of interest.
