Kensho’s Kids Mixed Martial Arts curriculum – Kids learn Skills for Life
Many of our kids train with us for years. Students start as kids and continue as adults.
Kensho’s Kids Martial Arts program is a challenging and fun way for kids to learn life skills as they grow. Our time-tested curriculum of mixed martial arts serves as the pathway to fitness, discipline, goal setting and excellence.
Our Kids Mixed Martial Arts Program instills traditional values as they learn a comprehensive and practical system of self defense techniques from a variety of martial art systems including: Kickboxing, Muay Thai, Karate, Tae Kwon Do, Judo/ Jiu Jitsu, MMA and Filipino Kali and French Savate. Our curriculum has been continually refined and proven effective over 35 years teaching mixed martial arts!
Kensho’s program develops confidence, respect, and a winning positive attitude. Students learn how to set and accomplish challenging goals. 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 learn to defend themselves in a variety of situations, but are taught that fighting is the last resort. The Kensho Child Development System is based on achieving short and long term goals. Recognition, reward, ranking and team spirit keep kids motivated to excel. Stripes and belts are awarded on accomplishment and achievement!
