Krav Kids is divided into age groups for ages 5 to 14 years old. It is a fun, encouraging alternative to traditional martial arts classes. Instead of forms and drills, we teach them tools and techniques tailored for situations that commonly confront kids at school, on the playground, and in life. In our classes, we stress four things: self-defense, fitness, confidence, and being a good citizen. By focusing on these real world needs, kids are engaged in the learning process.
One of our primary missions with any age group is fostering mental strength. A strong mind is agile, aware, and confident. Far from being a physical-only class, Krav Kids trains young minds to think and react with an emphasis on situational awareness and creative problem-solving. Whether they’re facing problems caused by a school bully or a surprise math test, your child will have a set of tools to handle the situation.
Your child will get plenty of exercise, but it will be exercise with a purpose. By linking their physical activity to real self-defense techniques, we focus on training the muscles they will be asked to use both in class and the real world. We help your kids develop and maintain healthy bodies through the use of exercise, nutrition, and mindfulness. They will learn the limits of their body, and how to push themselves safely to expand those limits.
They are taught awareness of their environment, what to do if they are attacked, and when to avoid a fight. By cultivating the proper mindset and the physical skills needed to support it, you help keep your child safe even when you aren’t around.
