Bedford Martial Arts Academy, a premier institution for the instruction of Martial Arts in Southern New Hampshire, offers an Adaptive Martial Arts Program.  Bedford Martial Arts Academy is committed to providing children with a well-rounded education which includes tolerance, respect, self-control, discipline, and coordination.

Bedford Martial Arts Academy understands that there are many families in the community struggling with Autism, ADD, ADHD, Aspergers, as well as other cognitive disorders, auditory, sensory, physical disorders, and other special needs.  Bedford Martial Arts Academy has always provided children of all ages, an ability to learn how to function with these challenges, and improve through all aspects of martial arts.

Bedford Martial Arts Academy also understands that families who struggle with these challenges everyday can feel isolated from others.  This can have negative effects on all of the family members, and family friends.

Our Adaptive Martial Arts Program provides children with the above-mentioned challenges, a class in which to learn focus, self-control, discipline, coordination and respect in a fun and UNDERSTANDING atmosphere.  Children in the Adaptive Classes will learn self-defense techniques in an environment that promotes tolerance.  Our Instructors have plenty of patience.  During the Adaptive Program Class, parents will have the ability to interact with other families facing the same challenges every day, providing a great community for the entire family.


Bedford Martial Arts Academy is a Member of the Adaptive Martial Arts Association. Mr. Stewart is a Consultant on the Adaptive Martial Arts Association Board.
