Introduction to Kids MMA

At our Kids MMA Classes, children will learn the fundamentals of various martial arts disciplines, including striking, grappling, and self-defence techniques.

Our MMA classes for kids are adapted to suit their age and developmental stages, with an emphasis on safety, fun, and skill acquisition. We have experienced instructors who play a crucial role in creating a positive learning environment for young participants.


Benefits of MMA for Kids

  • Fundamental Techniques: Kids will learn the basic techniques of striking (punches, kicks) and grappling (wrestling, Jiu-Jitsu submissions) in a controlled and age-appropriate manner. Trained instructors break down movements into manageable steps to ensure proper understanding and execution.
  • Fitness and Conditioning: MMA training includes fitness drills to improve cardiovascular endurance, strength, flexibility, and overall physical fitness. These activities are designed to be fun and engaging to keep kids active and healthy.
  • Discipline and Respect: MMA places a strong emphasis on discipline and respect for both instructors and training partners. Children are taught to follow instructions, show respect to others, and develop a positive attitude.
  • Safety First: Safety is a top priority in kids’ MMA training. Instructors ensure that children are equipped with appropriate protective gear, and techniques are practiced under close supervision to prevent injuries. Sparring may be introduced gradually and with a focus on control.
  • Coordination and Motor Skills: MMA training helps improve coordination, balance, and motor skills. The diverse range of movements involved in striking and grappling activities contributes to overall physical development.
  • Problem-Solving and Decision-Making: MMA involves strategic thinking and problem-solving. Kids learn how to think on their feet, make decisions quickly, and adapt to different situations. These are skills that can be valuable both inside and outside the training environment.
