Martial arts training especially for the under 10s

Many parents recognise the health benefits of martial arts training, especially at a time when children lead increasingly sedentary lives. Childhood weight problems are increasingly in the spot-light and training in an aerobic ?hard? style of martial arts is increasingly being seen as the perfect way to combat these health problems. Couple this with the increased self-esteem and self-confidence which training in the martial arts have traditionally brought, and it is no surprise that many parents are looking to encourage their children to take up martial arts training.

Master Simon Evans, the instructor at "Mighty Mites", tries to adopt a relaxed atmosphere to the lessons. That way, the students will be more relaxed and enjoy their training. Training should be a fun experience !

That doesn?t mean that training is undisciplined. The martial arts are contact arts / sports, so discipline must be maintained in order to keep training safe. This, in turn, promotes respect for the arts, respect for others and, importantly, self-respect.

The classes are designed for children aged 5 and above. However, if a child of 4 is mentally and physically mature enough, they will also be welcome.
