We offer classes in Mixed Martial Arts/Self Defense for children ages 4* and up. Classes are divided into three age groups: 4-6, 7-8, and 9-13. The student to coach ratio is kept intentionally small to ensure proper supervision and individual attention. All children begin at white belt. Promotions are based on behavior, attendance, and ability to execute techniques taught in class. With children, we are focus heavily on respect, discipline, teamwork, and building confidence. Our curriculum rotates every other week to cover the four ranges of combat: punching, kicking, trapping/clinching, and grappling. We hope that there will never be a need to use what we teach, but if there is, we believe it necessary that each student has experience in each range of combat in order to effectively defend him/herself. We also teach children how to diffuse a situation (bully prevention) and stress that the first option should always be to get away and find an adult.
*We allow children who are 3 years old to try a single free trial class to evaluate if they are ready for an early start. Please call us directly to set this up (609) 578-8407.
