The Perfect Bully Prevention Program

We use Martial Arts as a tool to incorporate useful life-skills in your child's life. We start with physical self-defense, move on to mental and verbal self-defense, and tie it all together with character development. By utilizing this multi-layer approach, we guarantee that you will see a difference in your child as they progress through our classes!

With Kids Martial Arts, your child can develop:

  • Greater confidence and self-respect
  • Helpful physical techniques used in self-defense
  • Coached and effective responses to verbal abuse
  • Increased responsibility and manners

Martial Arts Offer Foundational Training

We know that as your child grows, there are different things that they can handle and that they will encounter. That's why we've set up a few different programs that are either age-specific or ability specific so that way your child can learn in a group of their peers and grow at a speed that is comfortable for them.

We offer 3 different Kid's Karate Classes and 2 levels of Japanese Jiu Jitsu Classes:

Little Ninjas (4-7 Years Old)

Sometimes learning is hard to grasp for younger kids, so we've turned this class into a play session! Instead of having to focus on learning, we teach Karate through "playing". Instead of feeling like they are being told to do something, your children get to come and play games, and secretly learn the foundations of Tang Soo Do.

Karate Kids I (8-14 Years Old; White - Brown Belts)

Building on the skills that your kids have already learned, our Karate Kids I class starts using the belt system to help measure progression. This class teaches the basics and allows your child to train alongside their peers with the same ability so that they can continue to push themselves to achieve new heights!

Karate Kids II (8-14 Years Old; Red - Black Belts)

Once your child earns their red belt, they graduate to our Karate Kids II class. In this class, we introduce the most advanced techniques and refine every skill that your child learned before. Help your child master their physical fitness, awareness, and self-discipline!

Kids Jiu Jitsu (6-10 Years Old)

Jiu Jitsu is a form of grappling that helps with balance, flexibility, and strength. We start out teaching the basics and help encourage that by keeping classes based on age so that kids can practice with each other on an equal playing ground. As your child gets bigger, the competition gets bigger!

Teens Jiu Jitsu (12-15 Years Old)

Our Teens Jiu Jitsu classes are a little more fast paced and allow students to continue training with people similar to their own size. While Jiu Jitsu allows even the smallest opponent to gain the advantage, we still want to make sure that our classes are designed to help students learn with people at the same level.
