Young Kids Martial Arts Program. Our Young Kids Martial Arts Program called “Lil’ Attitudes” is designed for the 3- to 6-year-olds whose parents want their child to learn self-confidence and self-discipline. What differentiates the Attitude First Martial Arts Academy (AFMAA) is that even though this class is filled with laughter, fun, and movement, the child will learn the basics of self-defense in the process. More importantly, the child will learn how to follow instructions, interact with others, the importance of exercise, when it is appropriate to use certain skills, being aware, and mostly, how to defend him/herself.

Our Young Kids Martial Arts Program called “Lil’ Attitudes” is designed for the 3- to 5-year-olds whose parents want their child to learn self-confidence and self-discipline. What differentiates the Attitude First Martial Arts Academy (AFMAA) is that even though this class is filled with laughter, fun, and movement, the child will learn the basics of self-defense in the process. More importantly, the child will learn how to follow instructions, interact with others, the importance of exercise, when it is appropriate to use certain skills, being aware, and mostly, how to defend him/herself.

As we have found over the course of more than 37 years of instructing, for a child of this age group to learn, it is important for the lesson to be on the student’s level using his language and frame of mind. This half-hour class is specifically designed with this age group in mind.

Self-Defense

Our young martial artists have the opportunity to learn the American Kenpo Martial Art system. Kenpo is a self-defense system that incorporates hand strikes, kicking, submission grappling, and weapons with a realistic approach to defending oneself in a modern world. They will exercise their skills by learning Forms, Sets, and Freestyle. There will be ample opportunity to also explore competitions.
