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.
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 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.
