Description: Enrolling your kids in martial arts is a great way for them to pour their energy into physical activity and away from video games and the TV. They will gain many benefits from these classes that will stay with them for many years. This program is excellent for kids to get into shape and make new friends at the same time.
The Kids’ Martial Arts Program at Team Octopus incorporates various forms of martial arts, including Karate, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Boxing and Wrestling, for children ages 4 – 12. Classes include warm ups, new techniques, drills, and live rolls.
Mondays and Wednesdays focus on stand-up martial arts, such as Karate and Boxing. Tuesdays and Thursdays are Brazilian Jiu-jitsu and Wrestling, which follow a curriculum designed so that they will learn and continuously practice the fundamentals of Brazilian Jiu-jitsu, as well as progress onward to learn different techniques each time they attend class.
Kids these days are very different from kids of the 90s, 80s, and so forth. Instead of running around outside or building forts in the backyard, kids these days choose to be on their smart phones and tablets.
At Team Octopus, we are serious about your child’s success and want to help your child build self-esteem while simultaneously learn about respect, self-discipline, and team work.
