Martial Arts for Kids should be encouraged and embraced as it offers a range of valuable life skills as well as a fun way to keep them fit and healthy. We have a two kids Martial Arts classes available, Minis and Juniors, distinguished only by age group. This allows us to cater the session for your child’s age, assess the ability of each child individually and encourage them along their Martial Arts journey. Both Girls and Boys are welcome along to our mixed gender classes; rest assured that we will not make your child do anything they are uncomfortable with. They aim of Martial Arts for children is to build confidence and skill in a safe, friendly environment. Read more about the benefits of MMA for kids below.
Mini Bad Boys/Girls
Mini Bad Boys is a mixed gender group session of mixed martial arts for kids aged 4-7. Your child will be able to learn the basics on a range of martial arts including BJJ, Muay Thai, Boxing, MMA and more! With safe and structured classes available daily, your child will thoroughly enjoy training with us. We bet they will want to continue on to our Junior Bad Boy classes when they reach 8.
Junior Bad Boys/Girls
Junior Bad Boys is a mixed gender group session of mixed martial arts for kids aged 8-14. Just like our Mini Bad Boys, there is a mixture of martial arts on offer including BJJ, Muay Thai, Boxing and MMA. A great step up from the Mini Bad Boy classes, this group will provide a natural transition from the basic martial arts moves into more complicated routines and classes. The natural progression following on from Junior classes is to attend Open Mat sessions where we teach the underlying philosophy of the various disciplines and how to tactically approach an opponent in combat whilst maintaining the respect and honour of the sport which will have been ingrained from their kids classes.
Why should my child do martial arts?
We understand you may have concerns about letting your child take part in martial arts training. There are a lot of preconceptions about this being a dangerous sport, but rest assured it is completely safe. We will not be asking your child to do anything which could cause themselves or others harm and there is a range of benefits on offer for young people. At the Bad Boy Training Centre, we can assure you that we only teach the children what you and they are comfortable with.
We acknowledge that children might have different technical abilities which is why we cater the class to suit everyone’s needs. We have qualified instructors who lead the classes that have been training in martial arts for years. They will ensure you child gets the most out of each class and build the skills they need to benefit them both in the sport and in life. If you wish to enroll your child into one of our classes, they have the chance to earn belts/certificates to mark their progress. This is a great extra-curricular activity to accompany the schooling achievements. For more information on this, please see our Kid’s BJJ/MMA Grading & Syllabus.
