We have two options for parents wanting to get their children into martial arts.
- Little Mantis Kung Fu – a stand up system similar to Karate & Taekwondo (Suitable for age 5 to 14)
- Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu – a ground based system similar to Judo & Wrestling (Suitable for age 6 to 12)
Our Little Mantis Kung Fu is a comprehensive martial arts system specifically designed for the children. They will learn traditional Chinese Martial Arts skills which provide a excellent base for a lifetime of martial arts training. We have a syllabus which will take them from White Sash to Junior Black Sash.
Our Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is as genuine as it gets with a lineage back to Brazil. It’s a great sport and self defence method with a traditional belt system & martial arts base of respect, hardwork and courage. If your child has lots of energy then it’s the perfect outlet. It’s also one of the best ways to improve athletic ability.
It’s about having fun…
People learn better when they are enjoying themselves and can relax, this is more evident with children that anywhere else. Games and drills are part of our classes so that skills are developed and the children are challenged.
The children can test so that they keep progressing steadily up the syllabus. Tests are bite-sized chunks which slowly get more technical and challenging as they progress.
