9-12 Year Old Martial Arts Classes


  • Martial arts is Great for Children Ages 9 to 12

   A 1985 study found that children in martial arts have an increased sense of responsibility, a decrease in the willingness to take foolish risks, and a higher sense of self-esteem.  This is why millions of parents are using martial arts to supplement their children’s education.


  • Our reward system improves children’s self-esteem

The belt system is the key to building esteem.  When kids earn their belts it gives them a great sense of accomplishment that really improves the way they feel about themselves.


  • Our program teaches children discipline

We have a trained staff of patient instructors who love to work with children, but are also very clear about limits.  We enforce good rules of behavior in class, and we expect the same good behavior at home and in school.


  • Our activities channel children’s aggression

Many doctors have prescribed our school because of the positive outlet it gives kids for all their energy.


  • Our program teaches children essential self defense skills

Our program teaches practical proven self-defense methods.  We also teach the kids that the moves they learn in class will work, so they don’t go home and try them on their family members or neighbors.
