Owner and head instructor, Chris Hoy, is passionate about spreading the knowledge and skills he has earned. Originally starting part time, with evening classes for adults, Hoy's Martial Arts Academy has grown to include classes for the entire family. From traditional martial arts, to Jiu-Jitsu, to fitness classes, there is something for everyone here.

Great spot for both adult & kids classes! My son takes kids classes and loves going, he’s picked up self defense instruction, Brazilian jiu jitsu, and basic striking. Kids classes are very safe and efficiently run. I take the adult Brazilian jiu jitsu classes and enjoy the laid back and informative atmosphere. The instructors are great guys who are always willing to answer questions and offer advice on technique.

My son has attended for over a year. Mr Hoy does an excellent job working with kids of all ages and teaches, not only martial arts, but life lessons kids can use in daily life. Highly recommended!!

Hoy’s Martial Arts Academy has taught my 7 year old son discipline, respect and character building skills through their anti-bullying techniques. Mr. Hoy’s self defense methods have taught my child to be confident and strong. We plan to be part of the school for many years to come.

Hoys martial arts is the best place for adults and kids to train martial arts in the area. They offer training in Filipino Kali, Indonesian Silat, Bruce Lee’s Jeet Kune Do, and they also have an outstanding BJJ program.. the kids programs are outstanding, and there is a path of progression for them to attain the skills necessary to attend the adult classes. Everyone knows the benefits of training martial arts.. the key difference is WHERE you train, and HOW you train. Sifu Chris Hoy is an outstanding teacher, and an even better man. I give Hoy’s my highest recommendation, and won’t train anywhere else.

Hoy’s Martial Arts Academy has helped me find a level of confidence and ability I didn’t know I had.

After leaving the Washington D.C. area and training Jiu Jitsu at the Pedro Sauer Academy, I was referred to HOY’S Martial Arts Academy and found the level of training to be outstanding. My Son and Daughter also attend Chris Hoy’s Academy and love the individual attention and quality instruction from Chris and Angelo Vega, one of the head instructors. They really make you feel like part of the family. The best Jiu Jitsu Academy in the area in my opinion.
