KIDS MARTIAL ARTS
KIDS MARTIAL ART CLASSES
Q: “Does martial arts make kids violent?”
No way! Martial arts is about peace, harmony and diplomacy. It teaches children how to AVOID fights - not pick them.
Q: “Can my child get injured with martial arts?”
As a parent, I'm sure you've seen that kids can get injured doing just about anything. Martial arts is no different, however we take safety very seriously here. Yes, injuries do sometimes happen. But we do everything in our power to avoid them. We do special exercises and stretches to make your child's body limber and flexible. And we're ALWAYS keeping a very close eye on everything going on.
Q: “Is martial arts fun for children?”
Absolutely! In fact, kids usually have to drag their parents to martial arts class - something parents are always shocked to see. We have our serious moments here where kids work and learn... but we have just as many moments where they goof off and have a blast!
Q: “Do children's confidence & self-esteem grow with martial arts?”
Thats a huge YES! Kids with low self-esteem often come out of their shells. As their skill level increases, they feel more and more confident. Other kids look up to them, just as they look up to other kids who are ahead of them. It builds a sense of confidence, pride, and teamwork.
Q: “What's a good age for a child to start martial arts?”
Honestly, practically every age is a good age to start! We have children as young as 3 1/2 years old, as well as teenagers. We also have specific programs for adults. So no matter where you or your child is on the age spectrum - we've got you covered.
Q: “Do boys AND girls take martial arts?”
Yes! We have a good mix of both girls and boys in our kids martial arts classes! Some people think that the boys are much “stronger and tougher,” but in reality this is not true. In fact, often girls are the stronger ones!
Q: “My child has additional needs/learning difficulties, will martial arts be suitable?”
Gorillas learning environment is truly unique. We do not focus on competition, and we do not compare and contrast our students’ performance to other students, their development and successes are their own. The methodology we use allows many students with special needs (anywhere on the spectrum, sensory integration or delays, learning differences)to thrive in our classes. Non-verbal participants would benefit from private classes. Gorillas is an inclusive school. Our classes are especially helpful for children with ADHD/ADD, anxiety, depression, sensory or motor differences.
