Molding Your Child To Be A Champion On and Off The Mats
Our Kids Martial Arts classes are run by a group of high-level instructors, who take great pride in teaching kids martial arts. We believe that the best martial art for kids is brazilian jiu-jitsu as well as boxing or muay thai. Our instructors are active practitioners in the martial arts, who have been molding their skills for years. Our kids martial arts classes start at the age of 4 years old, and revolve around a systematic and progressive approach to the fundamentals kids jiu jitsu and MMA. We believe every child should be well-rounded in all aspects of self-defense training. This training consists of the basics of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Muay Thai, Boxing, and Wrestling. As the kids get older in age, we are gradually able to expose them to more intricate techniques, and live training, in a controlled environment. In addition to self-defense training, the children also get educated on different core Life Skill values to help them navigate through life's challenges more efficiently.
