Class details

We specialise in teaching children. We mentor and inspire every child, helping them grow in self confidence & wisdom. Children’s classes include 3-5 minute mat chats in every class, with a range of topics covered in our unique and specially designed programs, no other club teaches and gets the results we get. Watch your child grow in confidence and as a person.

Regardless of age or fitness levels, a student will benefit physically from training. Improvements in flexibility, strength, stamina and aerobic fitness are just some of the benefits to be gained. With correct training under proper instruction students can improve concentration, self confidence, self esteem, discipline, leading to increased positivity, mind control, stress relief, leading to peace of mind and a healthier attitude to life.

Classes are fun filled using a variety of games, drills and exercises to insure your child learns in a easy fun manner. We have three different times for Children Beginner’s classes.
