Martial Arts For Children In Gloucester
Age Specific Classes From Three Years Old
Karate, Kickboxing and Krav Maga
below is a list of all our children's classes that we teach in our FULLY matted professional studio
3 & 4 Year Olds
Here we have our Internationally Acclaimed Karate Tots for 3 & 4yr olds! This age group love running around, and need a lot of stimulus. This is why the Karate Tots programme is a physical activity that is built around games. They have a big imagination and love getting results. Our programme keeps them entertained and sets them up on a solid foundation.
5 & 6 Year Olds
We call this course "Karate Kids". Do we have the energy to keep up with this age group! This age group demands attention. They are live wires, interested in everything and are the most enthusiastic of our students. They love trying new moves, mix that with the games, and they love it. This is an ideal age to start in the Martial Arts. The Karate Kid programme adapts to their needs while building skills that set them up for success.
7 to 12 Year Olds
This age group are called "Samurais". At this age, the children are so impressionable! As parents we have to make sure they are surrounded with positive role models. It has been said that who you surround yourself with is who you will become, so learning Karate at Kicx will ensure that your child is surrounded with positive people. Children this age are like sponges, they pick up self-defence and anti bullying skills so easily. Children love this fast paced class, and parents love the Life Skills that are taught.
13 Year Olds +
This age group are called "Warriors" These classes are Dynamic and Fast moving. This age still has a lot of fun, the instructor will help them get the most fun from being the best they can be. Martial Arts is a sport that helps children in all areas of life. If getting faster on the football pitch is what is needed, no problem. How about having better focus to shoot in Netball. The drills and skills that we work on will help with all different sports. At the same time, the students are learning real self-defence that will stay with them for a lifetime.
Kickboxing, Karate, Tae-kwon-do, Karate .....
Which Style Is Best For My Child?
After being involved in martial arts for nearly 40 years, I have found out that it is NEVER the style of a martial art that is important, it is always the instructor and the ethos of the school.
If you are looking for a school that is all about fighting, then we are not the school for you. If you are looking for a school that can help your child become the best they can be, learn real self-defence from World Champions, then get more details on our trial course.
What matters is the instructor - NOT THE STYLE!
What is MAPD?
MAPD is an acronym for Martial Arts & Personal Development. It incorporates Karate, Kickboxing, Krav Maga & Kung Fu, at the same time the children are learning Personal Development. The road in the logo symbolises the road to success.
World Champion instructor!
Master Instructor Stephen Thompson has been training in the martial arts since 1979! He has travelled all over the world competing and won 10 Gold Medals for England. He is currently training towards his 7th Dan in Karate. Being Team Captain for over 12 years, he loved helping the team achieve success. Now his focus is on helping children become the best they can be in his home town of Gloucester.
