The Lion of Judah Academy is a spirit-filled program that instructs both adults and children in the ways of the Lord.  Through teaching biblical principles along with self defense skills, students can truly embrace the life God had intended for them.  At Lion of Judah Academy, we're committed to the highest quality training, offering Men, Women, and children a core set of skills that can help enrich every aspect of your life. 

The self defense serves as tool to better prepare our students to deal with potential threats.  But more importantly it shows principles that can be incorporated for both physical and spiritual growth.  Though we use martial arts, it is not our primary focus.  We are a spirit filled, transformative academy intended on enriching the lives of our students by putting Jesus at the center of their lives.




“O God the Lord, the strength of my salvation,
You have covered my head in the day of battle."

Psalm 140:7

In our classes we present a more holistic approach to our training. Not only will these life saving skills equip you, but your health will improve in the process. At Lion of Judah Academy, we're helping you stay ready to defend without wasting a second.  As you continue to train you will develop situational awareness.

Our classes focus on real-world threats and self-defense without the restrictions of drawn-out forms and techniques. Instead, we have adopted a system of defensive strategies to help you survive an attack.

You will develop more spiritual awareness as you learn about the Lord and His purpose for your life.  The biblical principles will teach you to build your faith, spiritual warfare, and develop character.  Classes are held on Tuesdays at 6pm, Thursdays at 5pm, and Sundays at 5pm.



"Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it."

Proverbs 22:6

Children are the heritage of the Lord.  It's imperative that we train them in the path they should go.  That's why at Lion of Judah Academy, we're raising up champions.  Through biblical principles and the martial arts, you will see your child grow in confidence.  

Through our Kids program, we teach students realistic self-defense skills, anti-bullying strategies, and motivate them to improve their fitness. Our team at Lion of Judah Academy also strives to enrich them with crucial life skills such as self-confidence, teamwork, perseverance, and integrity. Join us in Raleigh and help your child get a head start in life through our Kids Self Defense programs! 

Classes are held on Tuesdays at 5pm and Sundays at 4pm.
