Martial Arts Classes for Kids

Keeping fit, achieving goals and having fun.

At Rob Lock’s martial arts academy we offer various types of martial arts classes for kids. From karate to Muay Thai Boxing, we have something to suit every child.

 

Why should my child take up martial arts classes?

Children who take part in martial art classes learn a number of valuable skills which you may not be aware of. 

Children’s martial arts classes focus on individual development unlike other sports which encourage team competition. One of the many reasons parents enrol their children into martial arts children’s classes is so they can build physical and mental strength as an individual. 

The classes include goal setting and time management, essential life skills which also support academic study. Martial arts classes are aimed to build a child’s concentration and focus.

Karate is one of our most popular classes and is based on teaching children how to connect mind and body through self defence and reaction to danger. Our karate classes for kids are centred around growing each individual’s skills. Our karate classes cater for children from age 4 years to 17 years. We offer two types of karate classes for children, a basic programme and an advanced programme with lessons split into two age groups 4 to 6 years and 7 years to adult.
