Kensho’s Kids classes are designed to be a fun and challenging way for kids to learn life skills that will serve them as they grow. Our time tested curriculum of mixed martial arts serves as the pathway to fitness, discipline, goal setting and excellence.  Our program builds core values to develop confidence, respect, and a winning personal, social and academic attitude.

Not only will your child gain the confidence that comes from knowing how to defend themselves, but students build awareness and safe habits by participating in discussions on: “Stranger Danger”, “Bullying″, “Home Safety” and “Street Safety”.

Children learn how to diffuse a situation using verbal defense, as well as using attitude and strong body language to prevent bullying. They are taught that fighting is the last resort.

Stripes and belts are awarded on accomplishment and achievement!
