Does your young child
They struggle to maintain control of their movements and may be unintentionally destructive.
They find it difficult to focus on a task or to see it through to the end.
They have a hard time sharing their belongings and getting along with other kids.
Parenting young children is a real challenge.
You must balance their natural inquisitiveness and high energy with trying to teach them the basic skills they need for school and life.
Discipline, sharing, and self-control are all things they need to learn to be successful.
The ideal setting is one that’s got some structure but works with kids at their current developmental level. If they have fun while they’re learning, they’ll be more likely to retain those lessons and learn the skills they need.
Results and growth with every class!
Studying martial arts is ideal for young children. It provides them with an outlet for their energy. But, it also teaches them about respect, discipline, and other core values that will go with them beyond the dojo. Junior martial arts classes teach kids to control their movements and behavior, and they’ll learn social skills and interaction at the same time.
Studying Martial Arts Builds Physical Coordination and Control
Young children who learn martial arts find out quickly that each movement must be intentional. They learn to control their movements to the best of their ability.
They also practice hand-eye coordination and learn about their bodies. That means they’ll be less likely to be unintentionally destructive.
Young Martial Arts Students Learn How to Focus
Getting young kids to pay attention can feel like an impossible task. The structure of our martial arts classes shows kids the importance of focus and teaches them by having them apply it to easily-achievable tasks.
The focus they learn in the dojo is something they’ll take home – and into the classroom. That’s why kids who study martial arts tend to be good students, too.
Martial Arts Helps Kids Learn to Deal with Frustration
Martial arts instruction requires students to pursue goals to earn new belts. Young kids can easily become frustrated when they don’t get what they want, but studying martial arts helps them learn the power of persistence.
The physical activity in our classes also helps kids manage stress and anxiety by allowing them to burn it off in a safe and constructive way.
Kids Who Study Martial Arts Learn Good Sportsmanship
Losing is not anybody’s idea of fun, but we all need to learn how to accept a defeat gracefully and move on. We teach students that losing is part of life – and it’s what you do after you lose that tells people who you are.
Even though martial arts is an individual sport, we cultivate an environment of supportive teamwork where students root for one another.
Omg where to start... Great atmosphere and fantastic people!! My daughter Rosie simply adores going to class and interacting with the instructors as well as the kids. Normally, before starting the class she would barely come up to another child and play; now she seeks then out with a sense of confidence I would of thought was never going to come. Her goal now is to compete and excel in the jiujitsu community. Like she told me the other day, "Daddy I want to be like the Pokemon song; I want to be the very best that no one ever was!" Kid's got dreams and I know all the awesome people at Gracie's will help her make it happen.
This is such an amazing place to be! Im so glad I got to spend time here and learn some basic skills! I cannot want to go back!!!!
My son has only been here for a month but he loves the classes and has learned a lot. The entire stuff are super friendly and very helpful. They really make you feel like family. Mr scott does an amazing job with the kids. I highly recommend you bring your kids to try it out.
I've never been in a more welcoming friendly environment. They have some of the best instructors in the state. This is a gym for everyone. Great family environment and very welcoming to all visitors. Highly Recommend
My 7 year old son and 8 year old daughter have both been training here coming up on three years. I finally gave in and started training myself about 4 months ago.
Has to be the most fulfilling thing i've ever done not only myself but also how I get to enjoy it with both of my kids.
Every one of the instructors is extremely kind and welcoming. They take pride in how they treat their new students. You will feel welcome.
Great workout, very stimulating mentally and the camaraderie/family atmosphere is amazing.
