Kenpo Karate (7 and up), Kids Mixed Martial Arts (6 – 13) our kids programs are set up based upon age so children can get the most out of the program. Very young children are still learning basic balance and movement skills but they need the ability to have more freedom in the way they learn.
Kids Mixed Martial Arts (KMMA) ages 6 – 13, our KMMA program will instill discipline and a solid fitness base for your child. The program is designed to keep them moving and in shape. For those families who are looking for an avenue towards competition, This program can provide that for your children as well for any open tournament in jiu jitsu, kickboxing, or a blend. The KMMA class is a blend of jiu jitsu, shoot wrestling, greco roman wretlins and thai/savate kickboxing. It is a complete program from head to toe, standing to ground.
Kenpo Karate, ages 7 and up, continues the journey into balance and movement and adds the elements of striking, kicks and punches. Karate requires a bit more focus so this is why the recommended starting age is higher. Kenpo Karate also better reflects how children will interact at this age as well. We are not saying we want our children to fight, but at this age they are likely to encounter someone who will try to hit them. Kenpo Karate is a great way to learn to stop the strike and find their way out of the situation and is a blended system meaning it has aspects of many arts in its teachings.
