Kids Martial Arts
A program for every age
Our curriculum is tailored and specifically designed for each age group, striking an ideal balance of structured fun and opportunities for personal growth.
3 & 4 years old
It all starts here. This program is designed to give your child the start to a lifetime of enjoying fitness. Classes are 30 minutes of non-stop structured fun. Balance, coordination, sharing and manners, are emphasized in this class, as well as basic martial arts moves and safety lessons.
5 & 6 years old
In our Little Champs program, kids start to hone their fine motor skills. The big emphasis for this age group is learning focus and self control, as well as mastering the basic skills needed to begin a journey towards a black belt. Though martial arts is often though of as an individul activity, we teach the importance of teamwork and encouraging your classmates to excel!
Ages 7 & up
The curriculum focuses on techniques, forms, self defense, and sparring. However our students learn much more than just the moves: the real lesson of martial arts classes for kids is found in the determination and confidence derived from perseverance and integrity in one's practice. Many of our students, from yellow belt to black belt, become leaders in their communities as they move into young adulthood.
"Both my sons take karate at Modern Martial Arts and they love it. It has been a great confidence booster while at the same time improving their listening skills and discipline. The instructors are very good and they make a point to know each child. I highly recommend this school!"
