Character development for children happens through our kids Mixed Martial Arts program. Your children will learn Mixed Martial Arts, which is a mix of Thai Boxing, Boxing, Gracie Jiu-Jitsu, and Wrestling. Along with awesome self defense, they will learn how to become leaders, to speak in public, to set goals, self discipline, honor and integrity. We are like an athletic Sylvan Learning Center! Our kids classes are the best in the Twin Cities area. We specialize in teaching kids with ADD and ADHD. Anyone can teach an adult who WANTS to learn, but it takes a different temperament to teach children. Our instructors are some of the best children’s instructors around.

As kids start to break away from you it’s heartbreaking (I have 7 kids, so I know the deal). As social media becomes an obsession, and the bullies and friends that may or may not be a good influence creep into their life, you are now in second place, if you’re lucky.

At American School of Martial Arts, we re-enforce the good old fashioned American Values that just aren’t taught anymore. We teach your children that there are winners and losers, not everyone is equal, that they are held accountable by the accomplishments that they achieve, that they need to strive for greatness and they have to work hard… sorry, no trophies or medals for just showing up.

Confidence will be developed when your kids train and escape positions. By learning and understanding the power of Mixed Martial Arts, they will then start to develop true confidence… not the false sense of confidence because someone tells them it works or because they scream, “Yes, sir!” a lot, like traditional karate schools. After a few months of consistent training and developing technical skill sets, that they test in a safe environment, their confidence will build to a greater degree with each class, because the training is real and they will feel newfound power and confidence.

Benefits your child will receive by training at American Top Team:

  • No participation trophies.
  • No safe spaces, stand up for yourself.
  • Patriotism, the pledge is said after every class.
  • Our God given rights as put forth in the Constitution, bill of rights with all amendments included. Nothing too in depth, as martial arts comes 1st, but we do briefly address said principals.
  • Look people in the eye.
  • The proper handshake.
  • Walking with confidence.
  • Ways to address adults with respect.
  • How to answer instead of giving excuses.
  • How to get and keep a mental and physical toughness.
  • Plus many,many more.

This is an example of our kids class. The kids are practicing Jiu-Jitsu, which is one of our 4 basics taught of Boxing, Thaiboxing, Jiu-Jitsu and Wrestling.

Our children’s Mixed Martial Arts classes are top notch!

We teach the same discipline, confidence building, attention sharpening, and character development skills as Traditional Martial Arts schools, the difference being; your kids will learn self defense that actually works!

Not only will your kids receive the awesome benefits listed above, but the self defense they learn will be cutting edge, tested by our professional mixed martial arts fighters on a regular basis.

We are better, and we can prove it!

“Our family joined ATT about four months ago after being 2nd degree black belts at another martial arts school. It was an extremely difficult decision to start over, but it couldn’t have been a better move for our family. The emphasis on exercise, physical fitness, proper nutrition and doing what is right are awesome and our families habits have changed considerably and we are getting in better shape, we feel great and are learning some very practical martial arts and self defense. As a family with two daughters, we feel more at ease that they will be able to defend themselves if necessary. Our daughters testing for their first belt at ATT was more difficult than any of their previous black belt tests, so when the test was over, they were very proud of themselves and we are very proud to be a part of ATT.”

“We really appreciate the great leadership and skills that you have taught Carlos in the last few years. He has become more confident, disciplined and is demonstrating leadership qualities that we believe were nurtured through training at your school.”

“We cannot thank you enough for all of the great things you did for Jack. He is a completely different kid than he was three years ago. The things you taught him about recognizing the signals from his body and his brain have helped in every aspect of his life. Your training, combined with a number of other things we did for him, allow him to excel at school. Last June, he, for the second year in a row, achieved the highest math score on the state tests for Bloomington 4th graders. Without your help, he could not have sat still long enough to take the test. Thank you again.”

-Kyle and Cindy Elbert Bloomington, MN

“American Top Team of Savage gives kids a comprehensive program of mixed martial arts while at the same time reinforcing the values that we, as parents, work so hard to instill in our children. What we really appreciate about how Eric runs his program is the way he incorporates the values of respect, discipline, nutrition and even patriotism into the classes. Not only do the kids get trained in several aspects of martial arts (self-defense, jiu-jitsu, kenpo) but they gain self discipline and confidence while having fun… ATT Savage is one place you can count on to reinforce important values to your kids while giving them excellent martial arts training!”
