**Mighty Mites – 3-5 year old &

Our mission with Youth Martial Arts is to provide a character development program to the area’s youth through martial arts. We want to provide children with a constructive outlet for their energy while gaining the attributes and qualities parents strive for in their children.
We specialize in strengthening students self confidence, discipline, focus, leadership skills, respect for others, perseverance and integrity all while giving them an activity which will physically challenge their bodies and mentally stimulate their minds. This combination leads to a program which drives students to work hard and set goals not only in martial arts but in all walks of life.
For ages 5+ this class is meant to fulfill the active needs that youth have throughout their school years. We strive to have a Martial Arts class full of fun, friends and fitness! The classes are filled with physically challenging and mentally stimulating material that is catered to all ages of the youth program.
In Youth Martial Arts we use our Martial Arts as a means of enriching our lives and helping our bodies and minds grow. Because of this we do not use our Martial Arts to hurt other people. In Youth Martial Arts, we view all techniques that the youth learn as tools, not weapons. The students are rewarded for their efforts via the belt ranking system where the children can achieve the rank of black belt.
