Training martial arts is at its simplest the pursuit of total wellness for the mind, body, and spirit. We believe that it’s never too early to begin! In addition to Global MMA Academy's industry-leading comprehensive youth martial arts curriculum, we offer skills-based enrichment classes to complement the martial arts lifestyle.
For ages 5 and up, we offer a Life Skills for Young Warriors class, which focuses on healthy habits, tools, and lessons to encourage wellness. This weekly class includes seminar-style rotating topics, and varies from learning how to choose produce in a grocery store, to calming breathing techniques, to setting goals. All classes are 1-hour and include 5 minutes of guided physical activity at the beginning and midpoint of class, with two 20-minute learning sessions in each class.
For ages 5 and up, we offer classes in:
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu,
Muay Thai Kickboxing,
Traditional Japanese Weapons,
and Self Defense.
All youth martial arts classes are taught by our head coach and quadruple black belt, Sensei Jason Dodd. Our programs are focused on combat, fitness, and self defense. Sparring is part of almost every class.
For ages 0-5, we offer three different “pre-martial arts” classes for children and parents, centered on functional fitness, focus, and building friendships. These classes are designed for early childhood learning and moving, and include a built-in workouts for parents, too!
