Martial Arts for all ages

Little Ninjas

Ages 4-6

This class is an ideal blend of basic martial arts and life skills. It is the beginning of their Martial Arts journey which not only teaches them the basics of the discipline itself, but also instils the ethos behind Martial Arts to encourage focus, discipline, respect and humility. These programmes are structured to provide all students with a fun and safe learning environment. Students are graded every eight weeks and awarded different coloured belts for each grading culminating in the Lil Ninjas Black Belt; equivalent to the first belt in the children’s syllabus.

Each class will follow a simple format with a warm up, stretch, life skill, technical training, forms/gymnastics and finishing off with a safety skill. We help with retention of topics by providing weekly take home sheets for the students who are encouraged to talk about the topics they have learned at home using the sheets as a prompt.

Juniors

Ages 7-13

The Juniors programme is a martial gymnastics, tricks, forms and kickboxing, basic self-defence, and physical conditioning programme with a structured grading system, aimed at children aged 7 – 13 years. We present older children with a more mature learning environment, allowing them to develop at their own pace while ensuring that they grow into positive role models.

The main aim is to teach children the importance of discipline and respect – about how staying fit and healthy can improve their standard of living.

Classes are kept fun and energetic – allowing and indeed encouraging children to discover things for themselves, while remaining structured to ensure that every student gets the most out of every single class.

Any student who joins the Juniors class, will start in our basic programme covering the core skills of martial arts:

– Technique

– Strength

– Agility

– Flexibility

– Discipline

– Confidence

Tricks, Flips & Stunting

All Ages

Closely linked with Martial Forms, we aim to really develop the acrobatic skills that will stand our students apart by teaching show stopping flips, tricks and tumbles that will not only form part of their individual routines that they can compete with if they so wish, but also give them a dynamic, fun, action packed session which will also offer them a glimpse into the requirements of the stunting world. We hope that this will give them the potential to use this discipline to fulfill any acrobatic or stunting dream they may have. Following a syllabus starting at the basics, we are ensuring that this class will suit all ability levels and most importantly, will be fun and explosive!

Forms/Martial Gymnastics

All Ages

The rise in popularity of action and stunts in the TV and film industry with the likes of Avengers, Power Rangers and Martial Art action based movies, we wanted to bring to the public an opportunity to learn the tricks, tumbles and stunts that you see on the big screen.

In this class you will learn about traditional martial arts and high flying gymnastics abilities and put all of this together in a performance routine that is often accompanied with music. This can will also include the opportunity to learn Weapons Forms as well. Commonly known as XMA (Xtreme Martial Arts) this class signifies the transition of martial arts from the traditional towards the contemporary.  Having evolved from an ancient form of self-defense, the modern martial arts movement is now more sport and entertainment, while still remaining true to the time-honored principles of Honor, Discipline, Integrity, and Respect.  XMA is a fusion of all martial arts styles, blended together with performance arts, high-flying acrobatic skills. However, XMA cannot exist without — and is an extension of — traditional martial arts. It is designed to enhance the traditional with more speed, power, presentation, and performance value.
