Martial Arts Classes In Portsmouth

My name is Virginia Amaral and I am the owner of East Bay Martial Arts.After starting martial arts in my late twenties and a practicing RN, I was amazed at the positive impact  martial arts had on my life.  It became a goal to someday own my own school and when I opened East Bay Martial Arts in 1997, I made a commitment to our community in Portsmouth to create an enjoyable environment for students to improve their fitness, while building confidence they can carry into their everyday lives. It is my privilege and honor to take the the knowledge I have received in my own martial arts training and pass it on to the students at my school.


We teach all of our members to focus on and be present in the moment. In this age of distractions and sensory overload, this is a skill which returns immediate results in all aspects of one's life. Here are some interesting facts about East Bay Martial Arts:

  • Our members are from all walks of life - we have students, attorneys, doctors, engineers, military and law enforcement all training in a fun, team-oriented family environment.
  • We have kids that have been training for years that leave to top colleges and universities in the country, thanks in part to the discipline and focus on hard work they learned through martial arts. This is something we take a great amount of pride in.
  • There are always new generations of individuals and families coming in to pursue the ongoing legacy. It is a tradition in martial arts to pass down the knowledge one receives in their training and many students become instructors, often ending up owning their own schools.  

It is our goal to inspire strength, discipline, confidence and focus in our students, to help them discover their inner leader. I believe every child has the potential to be a leader, they just need someone to believe in them. As a parent myself, I understand the challenges of raising a confident and focused child in an age where there are more distractions than ever.

And while the kids have their fun, our adult program is second to none. From traditional martial arts to more modern self-defense styles, there is something for everyone at East Bay Martial Arts. If you are looking to burn major calories, learn self-defense moves and get in the best shape of your life, you must come and check out our adult program.

Imagine yourself as a stronger, more confident individual in the best shape of your life. I want to personally invite you to take advantage of our introductory trial offer, and turn that vision into a reality.

It would be a privilege to meet you and your child to have them step into the wonderful world of martial arts.
