Meet Your Favorites: The Best of Ashburn 2020

To call something the best, you better have some evidence to back it up. Lots of people think their school, or their mechanic or their favorite restaurant is the best — but who’s to say? But when a dozen, or two dozen, or a hundred or five hundred agree that something is the best — now there’s some weight behind it.

And that’s just what happened in Ashburn Magazine’s first-ever Best of Ashburn survey. Readers couldn’t wait to throw their weight behind their favorite people, places and businesses around Ashburn. More than 5,400 voters responded in some 100 categories, casting nearly 40,000 individual votes.

The parameters were relatively simple — we were looking for the best businesses based in Ashburn — which for our purposes extends from the Potomac River in the north to Route 50 in the south and from Goose Creek in the west to State Road 28 in the east. For some professional-type services — car dealers, pest control, etc. — we allowed Ashburn-adjacent businesses to be nominated.

So with no further ado, Ashburn Magazine is proud to present the winners in the inaugural Best of Ashburn survey.  Thanks to our voters, and congratulations to all!

Kickers Martial Arts Center

Kickers Sports & Martial Arts Complex is locally owned and operated by Master Eric Thompson, who has an extensive background in martial arts. Thompson has been operating afterschool programs  and summer camps since 1999. As Kickers grew, they realized parents and students wanted more than just martial arts. So a large gym was added to accommodate other programs for Ashburn area children. Providing a safe and fun facility for afterschool programs and summer camps is their main focus, but they also welcome trainers who can come in and hold group or private lessons in activities like Zumba, kick-boxing and mother-and-child yoga. Registration is underway for 2020 summer and fall programs.
