KIDS CLASSES

why enroll your child in martial arts?

A Martial art is more than just a sport. Training in martial arts is about becoming a better person while learning practical self-defence skills.  In this class we train our students to become martial artists, in all senses of the word.  

brazilian jiu jitsu

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a martial art that teaches your child how to defend themselves without having to hit anyone.  Unlike many other martial arts, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu does not involve any striking at all. Instead, it is a grappling art involving how to safely take-down and control opponents.

In this class, kids will learn the fundamental positions and techniques of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, while also performing drills and playing games which emphasize co-ordination and body awareness.

 

We prefer to demonstrate the effectiveness of this safe martial art to kids, before teaching them to punch and kick.​

muay thai

In this class your child will learn Muay Thai, a martial art originating in Thailand.

In Muay Thai, students learn the basics of how to strike and block. They will learn not just how to punch, but also how to kick, knee, and elbow.

Our Muay Thai program is taught as a sport, but also teaches concepts important for self-defence.
