CLASSES AND COURSES

MAT GATORS (4-6 YEAR OLDS)

The ages of 4 to 6 are an incredible time for learning. They are eager to form ideas about themselves, others, and the world around them. Karate Kicks' Mat Gators program is designed specifically for children at this stage of life. The Mat Gator class meets twice a week. Each class gives students a wonderful foundation for improved listening skills and focus.  Our program will give each child a head start in life by instilling a positive self image and "I Can Do It" attitude.  Each class focuses on skills with drills and "mat chats".  To the children, the drills seem like play, but they are really teaching them - eye and hand coordination, memory skills, listening and focus.

YOUTH KARATE (7-12 YEAR OLDS)

Our Youth Beginning Karate class (ages 7-12) meets twice a week.  Our program offers not only self defense skills, but also character development and discipline.  Students get individualized direction and learn to set goals.  Partnering with other students in class develops a team work attitude.  As a result the youth learn valuable leadership skills, important character traits and self control.

YOUTH BRAZILIAN JIU JITSU

Our youth Brazilian Jiu Jitsu offers not only self defense skills, but also character development and discipline.  Students get individualized direction and learn to set goals.  As a result the youth learn valuable leadership skills, important character traits and self control.  Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a non striking self defense martial art system based on leverage and control over the opponent.  It is considered to be one of the best self defenses for children since it's applied in response to physical aggression, so there's no need to worry about your child becoming violent.

ADULT BRAZILIAN JIU JITSU

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu offers not only self defense skills, but also character development and discipline.  Students get individualized direction and learn to set goals.  Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a non striking self defense martial art system based on leverage and control over the opponent.  Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is considered to be one of the best self defenses since it's applied in response to physical aggression.

WOMEN'S BRAZILIAN JIU JITSU

BRAZILIAN JIU JITSU PROMOTES THE CONCEPT THAT A PERSON CAN SUCCESSFULLY DEFEND AGAINST A BIGGER, STRONGER ASSAILANT BY USING LEVERAGE AND PROPER TECHNIQUE.  IN THE UNITED STATES, EVERY 9 SECONDS A WOMAN IS ASSAULTED.  WITH VALUABLE TRAINING IN BJJ, A WOMAN DOES NOT HAVE TO BE A VICTIM.   BJJ OFFERS NOT ONLY SELF DEFENSE BUT ALSO AN EXCELLENT FORM OF PHYSICAL EXERCISE.
