What We All Want For Our Kids

All parents want the same three things for our kids.

   We want them to be happy,

      we want them to be healthy,

         and we want them to be safe.


People often ask what we do at Krav Maga Martial Arts.

     We produce Happy, Healthy and Safe kids.

(teens adults and whole famalies too for that matter; but right now we are talking about our kids).

HOW do we do that?

·        Happy- Besides the simple fact that training in martial arts (done well) is FUN, we develop CONFIDENT kids in a great community where they make lots of friends and we not only use positive reinforcement and role modeling with the kids but we teach them to THINK POSITIVELY themselves! All of these things develop happy kids.

·        Healthy- It’s no secret that childhood obesity is epidemic in American society today. Not only will your kids be happy doing the fun exercises and martial arts physical activities at KMMA, but our instructors teach and role model the habits of physical and mental health.

·        Safe- Kids need to learn to swim. They need to know how to safely cross the street and ride a bike, and they need to know to stay out of the medicine cabinet. There are lots of little things that kids need to know to be safe.

o   But they als deserve to know how to defend themselves, against verbal or physical abuse, against bullying and against violence.

o   We teach the most practical self defense so that kids can live with the peace that comes only from knowing that we can defend ourselves from harm.

Why should you choose us for your child’s martial arts training?

·        We have been empowering lives and developing champions in our community for almost twenty years.

·        We have produced hundreds of Confident, Happy, Healthy and Safe Leaders!
