Martial Arts Classes for Kids

By:
Classes for KidsSports

You will find much more than kicking and yelling at your local dojo (although my kids love that aspect as well). Participation in the martial arts can boost your child’s confidence, self-discipline, and overall strength. In the list below, you will find classes of all disciplines, some for children as young as 3 and 4 years old. Many offer free trial classes, or free trial weeks, so be sure to inquire! Park districts also often offer martial arts classes: for details, check your town’s seasonal catalog.
