We firmly believe children need to learn self-defense as the most vulnerable members of our society. It’s never too soon to develop a justifiable and respectful awareness/self-defense mindset in our children. In fact, these are the best ages to build self-empowerment. Since they don’t have the same strength as adults, we have modified many of the traditional techniques to accommodate their smaller frames. We also address issues unique to children like “stranger danger,” bullying, and limiting their use of Krav Maga to self-defense only. Kids as young as six years old may attend.
It is important to note that our Kids’ Class is not intended as an after-school playtime. The children do have fun during the various drills or games introduced that are designed to improve fitness, build awareness and improve agility but the primary focus is placed on developing Krav Maga skills. Students need to be able to stay focused on the task at hand, follow instructions, and maintain control when working with a partner.
Krav Maga training is an excellent way for kids to develop confidence, coordination, and care for self and others as they learn how to protect their personal space. To learn more about Kids’ Class, please contact us!
