Chuck norris system

Welcome to Ocean Martial Arts. Home to the only Chuck Norris System School in the Hampton Roads area. The Chuck Norris System™ (CNS) is a Korean-based American hard style of karate.  The style was founded by Mr. Chuck Norris, and was originally based on Mr. Norris’ Tang Soo Do training in Korea while he was in the military.

At Ocean Martial Arts we offer classes for ages 5 and up. Martial arts is especially helpful for kids as it has also been attributed to helping kids achieve better grades in school. Don’t take our word for it checkout our reviews on Facebook and Google.

Childrens classes

We never want our kids to have to use these skills in modern life, but every good parent still wants their kids to be safe.

That’s why our martial arts training is very serious about teaching your kids the skills needed for self-protection in any circumstance, from the neighborhood bully to a stranger on the street (and so much more).

But knowing how to defend oneself is only half the battle. Our classes teach your child the respect and self-discipline needed to diffuse a situation without violence whenever possible – as well as the knowledge to know when force is the only way to safety.

Teen Classes

It can test your sanity even at the best of times. Yet, you want the best for your teenager. You want them to have the tools they need to succeed now and later in life – and you’d like that to happen without having to pull out all your hair in the process. Getting them to do anything you want them to do can feel utterly impossible, and you’re not sure where to start.

Studying martial arts helps kids learn how to overcome their problems and learn important lessons – the kind of lessons that will follow them to your home, to the classroom, and for the rest of their lives.

Adult Classes

Even when you do find time to hit the gym, regardless of having a schedule that’s full of work, family time, and other obligations, you might be bored by your same old workout. There’s nothing exciting about another go-round on the treadmill or elliptical – and you might need some encouragement to stick to a schedule and achieve your fitness goals.

Martial arts classes for adults focus on building core strength and cardiovascular fitness in a fun, social setting. Why not break out of your dull routine?

Specialty Classes

We also offer a wide range of specialty classes.

  • Cardio Kickboxing
  • Women’s Self Defense

What Our customers say

The instructor here is great with kids. He is able to engage with the kids and make karate fun. My son would go 7 days a week if I would let him. I've seen great positive changes in my son and his confidence is growing. I highly recommend Ocean Martial Arts if you want to get your child into karate. The rates are very reasonable and the class schedule is very flexible. Perfect for busy families.

Larry Walters

This is a great Karate school that helps you find your youth again. After many years of training at The Chuck Norris Katate Studio at Janaf shopping center I never thought I would be training again as an adult. My friend Mark Myers decided to open a school that teaches the Chuck Norris system. Several of us who used to train together in the 80’s have come together for the purpose of becoming our best again. We are relearning the basics again and keeping each other accountable. I have never felt better physically or mentally and am so happy to be on this journey with my childhood friends. If I can do it so can you!
