Kids Krav Maga (ages 7-13)
Our Krav Maga kids program is an encouraging alternative to traditional martial arts self defense classes for kids. Krav Maga for kids teaches tools and techniques designed for situations that kids may encounter kids at school, on the playground, and in life. We focus on many different things in our classes, including: self-defense, fitness, character education and confidence.
Krav Maga For Kids Teaches Confidence
One of our primary missions with any age group is fostering mental strength. A strong mind is agile, aware, and confident. Far from being a physical-only class, Krav Maga for children trains young minds to think and react with an emphasis on situational awareness and creative problem-solving. Whether they’re facing problems caused by a school bully or a surprise math test, your child has a set of tools to handle the situation.
Krav Maga For Kids Teaches Fitness
In our Krav Maga classes, your child will get plenty of exercise, but it will be exercise with a purpose. By linking their physical activity to real self-defense techniques, we focus on training the muscles they will be asked to use both in class and the real world. We help your kids develop and maintain healthy bodies through the use of exercise, nutrition, and mindfulness. They will learn the limits of their body, and how to push themselves safely to expand those limits.
Krav Maga For Kids Teaches Self Defense
Students learn skills quickly and stay in shape, but they also get the practical skills to keep them safe. During our self defense classes for kids, they are taught awareness of their environment, what to do if they are attacked, and when to avoid a fight. By cultivating the proper mindset and the physical skills needed to support it, you help keep your child safe even when you aren’t around.
Top 5 reasons to get your child started in Krav Maga
1) Krav Maga Training Builds Confidence:
By learning how to protect themselves, your children will develop confidence in their ability to handle life’s challenges. In turn, their improved confidence will give them the courage to say “no” to negative influences.
2) Krav Maga Training Increases Focus:
We will help your child improve their focus by giving them clear goals and showing them how to reach those goals through hard work and consistency. Students who train in Martial Arts are proven to be better focused in other areas of life.
3) Krav Maga Training Develops Self-Control:
Kids learn self-control y learning how important it is to have respect, both for themselves and for others. Martial arts training teaches that in order to get respect, you first have to give it. Once your child learns this important lesson, their self-control will naturally increase.
4) Krav Maga Training Instills Discipline:
Discipline is “doing what you must do, when you have to do it, whether you feel like it or not.” Discipline is desperately needed in all areas of life at all ages, from grade school student to adult. The demanding exercises of martial arts training will give your child a vehicle to develop this crucial life skill.
5) Krav Maga Training Cultivates Courage:
Life can be difficult, and is quite a struggle at times. The person who is used to overcoming obstacles and has acquired the habit of facing challenges is the one who is more likely to succeed. This is why it is so important to develop that habit of courage early on, so that later in life a person will more easily face those difficulties with a positive outlook and a self-assurance that they can indeed be overcome. Our kids Krav Maga program provides young children with an excellent opportunity to safely learn how to face those fears and blast right through them.
