Kids Mixed Martial Arts/Self Defense/Character Building/Confidence Course

Character development for children:

  1. Real world self defense… which has proven to be MMA
  2. Self control
  3. Goal setting – can’t underestimate this one
  4. Integrity
  5. Self discipline
  6. Higher respect for parents and teachers
  7. Confidence
  8. Increased attention span

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.

martial arts for kids

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.

Teen 12-17 Mixed Martial Arts

  • Positive reinforcement on quality life decisions
  • Living a clean life
  • Healthy eating habits
  • Get them off their phone for a couple hours
  • Develop extreme confidence
  • Old school self discipline
  • Real self defense (no board breaking here!)

As your children age, activities become harder to find to keep them active. Between the phone and the computer, teens are inactive more than ever before in history. When I was a child, everyone was always together in the neighborhood being active. It was odd for a kid to sit indoors… now it’s just the opposite. They gather at each others house to play on the computer or whatever they do (still sometimes a mystery).  I just know they aren’t being active.

Mixed Martial Arts is not only cool, it’s the most viable form of self defense on the planet. And the workouts are awesome.

Not only will your teen get a great, fun workout, their confidence will skyrocket as they develop skill sets that really work.

Our environment is stellar. Mixing state of the art MMA training, along with old school American values and common sense, manners, and etiquette, they will develop a healthy respect for parents and teachers as well as learning self discipline and a healthy lifestyle.
