Our Kid's programs are designed to be age appropriate introductions to the world of Martial Arts styles. We celebrate the rich histories and complexities of a great many of the world of martial arts styles, but we introduce these arts to kids in a way that is easy to digest. Our students develop the skills and body knowledge that will ultimately provide a foundation for our Adult level Black Belt programs. Our goal is to teach kids practical, confidence building techniques while instilling in them life and fitness skills that will stay with them and benefit them in all of their chosen activities.

Mini Martial Artists
Mondays and Wednesdays from 4:15 to 5:00
Ages 3 to 6
Our Mini Martial Artists program is for ages 3 to 6 years old. With this group we focus our attention on developing listening skills, respect, coordination, body awareness and fitness as well as building the core skills utilized in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, wrestling and traditional martial arts. We use a variety of drills and games that are designed to build each child's core skills in a fun and engaging way. The primary focus of our Mini's Program is to build the confidence and the skills to prevent your child from being the victim of bullying. The formal Martial Arts atmosphere ensures that respect for self and others is learned. Our Mini Martial Artists work their way through a series of belts that are exclusive to their age group, but will ultimately form a solid foundation from which they can build more advanced skills as they transition into our Kids Explorer Program.
