Our kids classes are very different from your prototypical martial arts class. We have very clear goals.
The primary goal is self defence, when we say self defence we mean real life skills rather than traditional martial arts that look great yet are impractical. We teach verbal & physical self defence that can be used on a bus or train, in a classroom, in the playground & anywhere your child may find themselves alone & in harms way. The classes are dynamic and relevant with a typical class covering topics such as stranger danger, bullying, verbal de-escalation techniques and much more with an underlying message of violence as the last resort. The classes are age appropriate meaning we do not do gun disarms etc just situations children may find themselves in. Jeff our instructor is also an experienced school teacher (Physical Education) & has taught in high schools for 10 years & primary schools for 7 years so he understands the system and worked as an anti-bullying consultant so rest assured the information being given is from a reliable source!
Our other major goal is fitness! This class will most definitely improve your child's fitness with activities being quite physically demanding. Children are active for the entire time whether its mentally or physically & quite often finish the session exhausted & in a puddle of sweat! We test your child's resilience, mental fortitude thus developing discipline and team work through fun activities so they do not even realise they are working hard!
We have a grading system that is represented by a different colour shirt. If you watch the videos below you will see a variety of different t-shirt colours. We train in clothing that kids are likely to be wearing during an altercation. You are not required to purchase expensive traditional costumes just a T-shirt that is included in the grading fee. Kids also must wear shoes again for the fact that you are more likely to be wearing them when involved in an altercation & also due to the number of foot injuries that occur whilst training barefoot.
We encourage parents to be active & involved in your kids training. It is difficult particularly for younger kids to hold pads etc so parents are encouraged wherever possible to jump in and assist, this is a great chance to bond with your child!
