Whats Your Excuse?

  • I’m scared that I’ll get hurt.
  • I’m not sure women / kids should do this.
  • I’m worried about an old injury.

At a time when children are inundated with messages from media and peers encouraging immediate gratification through T.V., video games and the like, the martial-arts provide discipline, strong work ethic, focus and outstanding fitness that will guide children during their entire lives.

Talk to us about starting your child in our class, or just bring them into one of the classes for a free taster lesson. Our instructors are fully trained, CRB checked and insured to teach children.

With several dedicated coaches on the mat there is plenty of supervision and support. Our kids class started as a way for our coaches to introduce their own children to the martial-arts. Since then it has gone from strength to strength.

We use fun and games to teach the kids the basic fundamental movements that will be the foundation for their mixed martial arts training as they get older.

They will learn to work with and help other children, as well as getting used to close physical contact with other children in a safe controlled environment. They will gain confidence and learn important social skills too, as well as learning to defend them selves.

This is a fun and friendly class were your child will learn at their own pace and be given the chance to grow and learn how to make right choice and decisions. They will build relationships and learn how to communicate with others. Each child is treated in a way that meets there learning abilities and needs to ensure we can receive the best response from them.

Children learn all aspects of Sanshou (Chinese Kickboxing), Boxing and Brazilian Jiujitsu depending on their understanding, maturity and ability to follow instruction.

At The Fighting Arts Academy, we want to bring Mixed-Martial Arts to everyone. Our kids classes are split into two back-to-back sessions. This provides flexibility and allows some of our more motivated (and energetic!) kids to do train in a double class.

Kids classes cater from around 4 years to around 13 years old. From 14 onwards (or by explicit instructor invitation) we encourage our younger members to participate in our Adult classes.

Our kids classes are incredibly popular with both boys and girls. We are happy to work with children that have physical, behavioural and learning difficulties and will always do our best to work with parents to help and support.

We are incredibly proud of the our Fighting Arts Academy kids. We have been awarded team trophies in high level competition, have taught children who have gone on to win British, National and European Championships and now have 2 (now adult!) assistant instructors who started their own martial journey in our kids classes!
