Self-Defense and Fitness Classes at the Wik Academy of Martial Arts in Cincinnati

Fun, Functional, Intelligent Training

We take a holistic approach to training - every class will teach you useful and practical methods to defend yourself while being fun and giving you a great workout. Our instructors have studied multiple martial arts and are certified in personal training and nutrition.

There is no perfect martial art, much less a one-size-fits-all solution. We offer multiple arts so people can find one they love and that works for them.

Find out more about the arts we teach on our Arts page along with videos about each art.

Focused Progress & Personalized Attention

Everyone is welcome to all of our classes, however we offer specialized memberships for people looking for specific training. Our self-defense membership is great for those looking primarily to train in martial arts, while our fitness membership is great for those looking for fun workouts to get in the best shape of their lives.

The Unlimited membership is excellent for anyone who wants to take their training to the next level and have access to both all self-defense classes and all fitness classes.

For anyone looking for specialized training or to simply crush their goals in the shortest amount of time, we also offer one-on-one and small group private personal training and martial arts/self-defense training.

Detailed information about our memberships and personal training options is available on our Get Started page.

Community Outreach

We primarily teach out of our gym on the border of West Chester and Mason, however we also partner with local businesses and companies in the Greater Cincinnati area to teach workshops for professionals in a convenient environment.

Local businesses or organizations interested in partnering with us please send us a message via our contact page.

We Have the Best Students

Everyone is welcome to join our classes and workshops at the academy. Our adult classes are great for anyone between 18-60+. No one is too old or out of shape to train with us. We welcome students of all backgrounds, and skill levels.

We currently do not accept students younger than 13 due to the nature of the arts we teach. There is the danger of causing severe injury or death to others if misused outside of the academy.
