Lloyd Irvin Martial Arts Academy, located in Camp Springs, MD, is a martial arts school dedicated to serving its community and the youth. The program offers everything from professional mixed martial arts training to after school programs to very beginner fitness classes. But what makes Lloyd Irvin, head instructor and owner, most proud, is his youth program.
Master Lloyd Irvin has dedicated his youth program to providing kids and teens with, not only fitness and martial arts, but life skills such as discipline, manners, bully prevention techniques, self defense, avoiding peer pressure, confidence, academic achievement and much more.
“I wanted to start an academy where the whole family could come and train and grow together, but especially the kids. There’s so many negative influences on the youth today, I wanted to provide an environment where kids and teens could grow into intelligent, mature adults. I want them to have the confidence to excel in whatever path they choose.”
