  • Obtain the confidence to take the appropriate action when required
  • Make goals and keep commitments
  • Follow instructions
  • Use self-awareness, self-belief, self-confidence, and self-discipline as an opportunity enhancer
  • Build new “good” habits
  • Learn to exercise
  • Prevent bullying in their lives
  • Not allow anger to get the better of them
  • Understand the difference between right and wrong
  • Understand the reasons for living a healthy lifestyle
  • Defend themselves on the ground and standing up

The Attitude First Martial Arts Academy (AFMAA) Youth Martial Arts Program is an energetic and practical martial art skill development program for children between the ages of 6 and 12.  We have built the program around our three major areas of strength, confidence, and health.  Our goal is to provide the youth entrusted to us with the understanding to have discipline, protection, and empowerment; our Youth program helps children understand their own concerns while addressing the goals desired by parents.

Students learn how to use their martial art skills, techniques, sets, and forms to protect themselves from bullies as well as strangers. In addition, students learn how to use the martial arts for sportsmanlike competition.

At AFMAA and in the Youth Martial Arts Program, belts are never given…they are only earned. Our belt system helps children to understand responsibility, goal setting and consequences through tangible awards.  Every belt requires the student to be tested on the knowledge and skills taught in class.

Some of the qualities your child will develop in our Youth Martial Arts Program include:

• Development of fine motor skills, coordination, and symmetry
• Improvement in muscular strength and flexibility
• Understanding how to focus their attention to various motions of their body
• How to think critically about how to overcome challenges and obstacles
• How to see the benefit of hard work and dedication
• How to pay attention during extreme intellectual challenges
• Trying their hardest and putting forth 100% effort
• Believing in themselves through focus and concentration
• The importance of standing up for what is right
• Building the ability to lead others
• The ability to maintain confidence and effort when challenged by others
