Children’s Mixed Martial Arts (MMA)
Our children’s classes start from ages 4 to 7 in our Dinky Dojo after school club. These classes are 30 minutes long and will introduce your child to the principles of making healthy choices and being active, as well as an introduction to Mixed Martial Arts and self-defence. There is a strong emphasis on respect and discipline, but we keep the classes fun and engaging by incorporating games into the timetable.
From ages 7 to 14 children will advance to our Junior MMA programme. This syllabus incorporates all elements of Mixed Martial Arts and fitness whilst building confidence and teaching them the best ways to defend themselves. We take a strong anti-bullying stance and teach our students to work hard and respect others.
Over the age of 14 years, children can choose to transition into the beginner’s adult classes. We offer children and adults the opportunity to grade so they always have a goal to be working towards.
MARTIAL ARTS TRAINING GIVES YOUR SON OR DAUGHTER THE CHANCE TO STRENGTHEN IN MIND AS WELL AS BODY. IT ENCOMPASSES NOT JUST PHYSICAL ACTIVITY, BUT MENTAL AND EMOTIONAL LESSONS AS WELL.
