Our class environment promotes comradeship, teamwork, focus and concentration. Students are taught by experienced instructors the latest up to date mixed martial arts techniques and training methods. The program also includes many street self defence techniques and tactics for dealing with bullying. All students are expected to follow the rules and etiquette of a martial arts class which encourages them to be respectful, mature and focused. This instills a strong sense of integrity and honor which in turn builds strong self esteem, something very important in the life of a young teen.
Additional benefits your teen will receive:
Valuable life skills
The chance to meet potentially lifelong friends
A positive attitude which helps resist peer group pressure
Improved coordination, balance and flexibility
Our ranking system of coloured tabs and belts encourages goal setting with practical and realistic achievements. Ranks earned in Youth Freestyle Martial Arts also apply to the adult program where students can continue their progression to black belt and beyond. Members of the Youth Freestyle Martial Arts program are also allowed to attend one adult class a week and can choose from Thai kick boxing, Brazilian jiu jitsu, Mixed Martial Arts or Weaponry Combat.
