Children's Classes

Here at The Martial Arts Place, we have built a great reputation over many years by having a fun and nurturing environment in which to learn real Martial Arts.

We believe Martial Arts can provide children with a great foundation for life, with physical and mental benefits whilst also teaching important life skills.

By starting young, children are equipped with invaluable skills that stay with them forever. From increased respect and self-discipline to improved confidence, fitness and team skills, Martial Arts such as Kickboxing and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu can shape a child’s character and help them take life in their stride.

Our Junior Programmes also include a fun grading system which encourages self-improvement and allows the students’ progress to be monitored carefully.

  • Physical fitness: Our classes involve a lot of movement, including stretching, jumping, and striking or grappling, which can help children develop strength, flexibility, and endurance.
  • Self-defence skills: We teach simple, effective, self-defense techniques that can help children protect themselves in real-world situations.
  • Discipline and focus: Martial arts require a lot of discipline and focus, which can be beneficial for children both on and off the mat. Through training, children can learn to focus their attention, control their impulses, and develop self-discipline.
  • Confidence and self-esteem: As children learn new techniques and improve their skills in martial arts, they can gain confidence in their abilities. This can help boost their self-esteem and give them a sense of accomplishment.
  • Respect and humility: Many martial arts teach values such as respect, humility, and self-control. Children learn to respect their instructors and training partners, as well as themselves.
  • Mental and emotional health: Martial arts can also be beneficial for children's mental and emotional health. They can learn to manage stress, develop coping strategies, and build resilience.
  • Social skills: Martial arts are often taught in a group setting, which can help children develop social skills such as communication, teamwork, and leadership.
