The physical, emotional and social benefits of Martial Arts to children is immeasurable.
What we offer is a martial arts program specifically designed for children ages 5 to 14. This program focuses on improving children’s listening and motor skills while building confidence and respect for themselves and others.
We are pleased to offer our Kids Muay Thai and Submission Grappling Programs. All classes are taught by an accomplished instructor along with an assistant instructor to ensure proper supervision. We make certain that Muay Thai and Grappling skills are practiced safely. True Muay Thai and Grappling concepts are taught in a child friendly manner including specialized games, emphasizing teamwork and individual accomplishment.
The physical benefits for children are invaluable in a society where childhood obesity is on the rise. In fact, obesity among American children is reaching epidemic proportions. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that 15.3 percent of American children (ages 6 to 11) and 15.5 percent of teenagers (ages 12 to 19) are seriously overweight. So bad is the obesity problem that some scientists anticipate a spike in heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure and cancers. If we do not teach children the benefits of proper exercise, obese children will become obese adults.
Our school focuses on teaching traditional martial arts values such as respect for peers and parents, and an understanding of the value of hard work and perseverance. The children will also be able to observe the humble and kind nature of the world champion fighters at our gym. They will be able to learn by observation that Muay Thai makes you a stronger person and gives you confidence but it is never to be used in a violent or aggressive manner. The sooner children learn that there are alternatives to fighting, both physically and verbally, the sooner they will experience real personal growth. Both the individual and our society benefit.
