What are the benefits

Every child is different – some need to build confidence, some need to develop coordination, some need an outlet in a controlled environment. Whatever the needs, we work with them to help both mental and physical confidence.

  • How to listen
  • Respect
  • Self control
  • Motor skills
  • Strength – both physical and mental
  • Balance
  • Working with training partners

Children’s Krav Maga

Krav Maga is a self defence system which is ideal for all age groups as we gear classes specifically to various age-related threats.

The main instructor is Gideon Hajioff who has over 30 years teaching experience.

Children’s Muay Thai

Children’s Muay Thai is ideal for basic combat skills, development and a great workout.

Teaches discipline and develops mental and physical strength

Children’s Brazilian Jiu Jitsu

BJJ is a ground grappling art that children find natural and fun.

Developed originally in Japan the Brazilians took it to another level allowing intricate floor movements weaving into wrestling and submission moves.

Children’s Boxing

Boxing has become more popular due to the success of British Boxing in recent years.

A great way to develop footwork and striking skills whilst developing fitness.

Children’s Capoeira

Children can benefit on many levels from this Brazilian martial art which combines self defence, acrobatics, music and dance – helping children exercise, build strength, flexibility and technique.
