The Holly Family
With all of the choices for martial arts training, it makes sense that you may be wondering who we are and why we're different. Let's start with who we are. Family Kicks Championship Martial Arts is a family-owned and operated martial arts school that focuses on Traditional Taekwon Do.
We are truly a family-owned and operated business. You'll usually find Mr. Holly, Mrs. Holly and Mr. Holly's teenage son and daughter in class teaching and training together. This helps to create a comfortable environment for adults and children, men and women, and we encourage families to come and train together. Not only is this more efficient with everyone's busy schedules, but training together can be a fun and exciting activity to share together.
Steve Holly, Co-Owner & Chief Instructor
Mr. Holly is a 3rd degree Black Belt who trains under Master Adam Boisvert. Mr. Holly is a veteran of the United States Air Force and was a police officer for 10 years before changing careers and moving into the finance industry where he did anti-money laundering and fraud investigations. Mr. Holly was an instructor under Master Boisvert before relocating from New Hampshire to North Carolina in 2017. Mr. Holly loves teaching Taekwon Do and is excited to share this incredible martial art with you!
Crystal Holly, Co-Owner
Mrs. Holly just began her Taekwon Do journey when Family Kicks Championship Martial Arts opened its doors. Originally from California, Mrs. Holly relocated to North Carolina with Mr. Holly in 2017. While in California, Mrs. Holly owned and operated a Nanny business and brings her experience working with children to our school. Though she is also learning and training along with the other students in class, she offers a special perspective to our women and younger students. She will be the first to tell you that she wasn't sure if she would like Taekwon Do when she decided to open the school with Mr. Holly, but she is absolutely loving it and recommends it to everyone.
