Krav Maga classes for Kids

8 to 11 years old

Learning self defence through fun and games!

We give kids a perfect mix of structure and play. They learn to work toward goals and see the results of continued practice and discipline; during every class they will develop their skills through fun games and activities.

Kids will learn...

  • Simple and effective self-defence techniques
  • How to run away and find a safe place
  • How to get help from a known adult
  • Motor skills
  • Confidence
  • Speaking up

Free trial lesson

Give your child the opportunity to try the classes out and see what it’s like.

Trial classes are 45 minutes long. No experience or equipment is necessary.

Book a trial class

Please let us know of any medical condition that may affect their training, or any additional needs, by completing the disclaimer at least 24 hours before the trial class, so we can get in touch with you to discuss any requirements.

After the trial class your child can sign up to start training regularly in our weekly Krav Maga Kids classes. Payment is on a monthly basis.

Stay safe - Keep fit - Have Fun!

We are dedicated to helping your child succeed on his or her own terms, and gradually become more confident and self-assured. In krav maga you have the advantage of being part of a group, but being able to progress individually. We believe that this makes a good foundation for children to experience mastery and success in their activities, and through that, build real and lasting confidence.
