Due to the restrictions on physical training brought about by the onset of this pandemic, we are currently not offering our Kid's Krav Maga program.
We intend to resume our Kid's Programs in the summer of 2021.
The main objective of our Kids Krav Maga program is to get your children fit and focused - mentally, physically and socially, and allow them to face their unique challenges with discipline and a positive attitude.
Our program will not only teach simple and effective self-defense techniques, but also equip your children with essential life skills and improve their self-confidence and self-esteem.
"everything your children will ever be, they are becoming. you are raising adults, not children."
The Kid's Krav Maga program seeks to expose children to the core principles of Krav Maga through games, exercises, drills and other FUN activities. These activities develop their strength, balance and coordination, and improve their focus and discipline, and they gain a great sense of accomplishment out of it. These activities also help hone their instincts and make them more aware of their surroundings, allowing them to spot potential dangers early and avoid them. All of these lessons, in turn, translate into improved confidence and self esteem - traits that make them less likely targets for bullying.
Improved confidence and self-esteem also inspires assertiveness which would help them in preventing bullying behaviour by using verbal tactics and de-escalation. And because this is a Krav Maga program, the kids will learn effective self defense techniques to respond against a variety of threats and attacks. And while we don't condone fighting and we do encourage telling an adult, we also emphasize that ultimately, the responsibility for a child's safety and security rests squarely upon that child's shoulders - if they sense a threat from anyone or anything, they should act accordingly, immediately.
While the Kid's Krav Maga program is more of a life skills development course than it is a strict anti-bullying program, it develops attributes in your child that make it the perfect tool against bullying. To augment this, we do hold special anti-bullying workshops to deal with these specific scenarios. The photo at left was from a School Bus Bullying workshop (in a real school bus, of course) conducted at our Mississauga school last summer. Other bullying seminar/workshops for kids include non-violent de-escalation tactics, self defense in tight spaces, dealing with larger aggressors and multiple bullies scenarios. We also plan to hold joint parent/child seminars on online, social media and chatroom safety.
Lets face it - we can't always be there to protect our children against bullies. And realistically, neither can their teachers. So it's important that we give our kids the ability to handle these situations and protect themselves if necessary.
KID'S KRAV MAGA
For children aged 6-9 years old.
Through games and drills, your children will sharpen their senses and learn to trust their instincts and intuition to escape potentially dangerous situations. They will learn techniques used by elite Israeli special forces units to identify and avoid threats before they must use other forms of defense, so safety is always practiced before violence is used.
YOUNG PRACTITIONER 1
For Children aged 10-13 years old.
Between our real-life methods of self defense, emphasis on discipline and self-awareness, and our fundamental discouragement of unfocused violence and aggression, Krav Maga is a great way to keep your children safe while giving them confidence and integrity that will last into adulthood.
For teenagers 13-16 years old.
We recognize that today's teenagers are faced with a unique set of challenges - from cyber-bullying to threats of extreme violence and armed encounters. Krav Maga is uniquely suited to provide proper and effective solutions to these real world problems.
