Split into age groups, our junior classes are fun, structured and taught by professional, DBS-checked coaches.
Get in touch today to sign your children up for a free class. Enrolling them in a structured martial arts programme can offer all of the below benefits:
One of the central principles of all martial arts is self-discipline. Children today are so accustomed to receiving instant gratification that lessons in restraint and discipline aren't always easy to come by.
Children who don’t always thrive in social environments may find it easier to make new friends in a room filled with peers who share a common interest. Those in the playground may not always have much common ground, but martial artists can build camaraderie and get to know one another with this shared pursuit.
Get fit and active
Enrolling an inactive child in a physically challenging pastime (like BJJ or kickboxing) gives them an enjoyable activity that inspires them to keep moving and discourages having a sedentary lifestyle.
Confidence comes with achievement, so your child’s self-esteem will get a boost with every new move they master and every belt they earn. As time progresses, children can grow in confidence when they’re enrolled in a structured martial arts programme.
Respect adults and peers
In today’s culture, children don't always respect adults or authority figures. When they come to our classes, our coaches will teach them lessons in respect as well as martial arts techniques.
Encourage non-violent resolutions to conflict
Martial arts aren’t about violence. Defensive styles like BJJ and kickboxing teach children peaceful, non-violent conflict resolution skills, emphasising the importance of avoiding physical altercations.
Learn how to set and achieve goals
When children strive for new belts, they are learning valuable lessons about setting and achieving their goals.
Improve listening skills
To master techniques and advance through the belt ranks, children need to have superior listening skills. Children who aren't always adept at paying attention can benefit from the verbal instruction and one-on-one work we offer in our classes.
Build teamwork skills
Whether they’re breaking boards or sparring new techniques, teamwork plays an essential role in our classes. Working together to learn new things and accomplish goals is a crucial life lesson that we teach in our classes.
Benefit all areas of life
The benefits of junior martial arts training don’t end at our club. Confidence, increased fitness and discipline from our classes can help children socially and academically, improve behaviour at home and provide positive life lessons they carry into their adulthood.
