Legends Martial Arts academy has helped many children reach their full potential. We teach our young students life skills and physical skills that will benefit them now and as they grow into adults. We always emphasise non-violent conflict to resolve any confrontational issue which may or may not arise in their life, and teach children to recognise and avoid lures and threats. But for those rare instances where they may need to defend themselves, our curriculum combines the most practical and effective self defence techniques from a variety of martial arts disciplines. While we emphasize character development, our curriculum is designed to ensure that children are prepared, mentally and physically, to neutralise physical threats. Working with child development specialists and experts in child education, our teaching methods have been designed to ensure that children learn quickly and retain what they learn. We understand that younger students have a shorter attention span. Our methods help children explore and understand conflict through role-play and other exercises.

Legends Martial Arts Teen Program: During the teenage years, your children will be subjected to a wide range of influences, not all of them good. And as they grow through their teen years, the difference between good decisions and bad ones takes on much greater significance. In today’s world, with teenagers encountering life’s crossroads daily, it’s vital that they have positive peer relationships and positive role models in addition to you and their classroom teachers. For these reasons, teens at Legends Martial Arts generally have the option to train in a teen only class or in our adult classes. Please see individual location timetables for more information. Surrounded by other teens with positive values and adults with real life experience, they come to learn how focus, respect, and self-discipline give them a huge advantage in life. With the intense competition for college and university acceptance and the best jobs just around the corner, teens in our programme are well prepared to take on the challenge. Teens are treated like adults and expected to behave with maturity and professionalism. But this is not to say that classes aren’t fun. Teens are highly encouraged to enjoy their training. Getting a great workout, advancing though ranks, and having a lot of fun in the process is a great release from the stresses of school and teenage life. Instructors balance serious training with a light hearted side – Our teens enjoy themselves when they’re here and they look forward to returning when they’re at home or at school.
