Martial arts recommendation for kids?
« on: June 26, 2018, 12:02:49 AM »
Anyone have great recommendations on martial arts for kids particularly younger girls?  No I don’t think it will really teach them how to fight.  More self confidence building and anti-bullying.  I yelped a place called Kid Power Martial Arts, in Tustin.  It is taught by a female.  Anyone heard of it?

Hi shadyoc,

I am not sure where you live so that might make a difference in regards to what is convenient.  We live in Pavilion Park (Great Park) and our 4 kids (3 boys, 1 girl) have been going to the Gracie Barra Brazilian Jiu Jitsu off of Sand Canyon Blvd. and have been very happy.  We have 2 neighbors on our street who also have kids in this school. They have trial classes you can take to see if you like it but there are a lot of girls of all ages in the school.  If you have more questions feel free to PM me.  If this is too far, there are Brazilian Jiu Jitsu schools near Tustin as well.

Karate for all maybe a good match. Less emphasis on the actual fighting techniques, more emphasis on the confidence building, anti-bullying, socialization. Tustin and MV locations.

With all kids activities...I think you have to let the kid's personality dictate.  BJJ is great but it's not for everyone (or every kid) 

The more traditional MA (Karate and TKD) are basically a lot of jumping around, especially for younger kids.  Don't expect them to learn any actual MA skills until they are older.  The classes are also super crowded.

I would just find something that is easy for you to take him/her and see how the kid reacts.
