Mixed martial arts (MMA) incorporates Jiu-Jitsu, Muay Thai, kickboxing and boxing. The Emerald Smoke Kids Program introduces children to all of these in a fun, no-contact environment, with some of the city’s most respected MMA instructors. No experience necessary!Children ages 8 to 15 are invited to participate and can choose to advance through the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu belt system. Along with joining one of the fastest growing sports in America, students gain:
Self-respect and respect for others
Better listening and direction-following skills
The ability to defend themselves if necessary
Most importantly: the knowledge that “knowing how to fight is the best way to not have to fight at all”
Classes are 45-minutes in length and held every Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 4:15 p.m. All children ages 8 to 15 are welcome!Once you get the bug (and you will), check out our adult classes. Until then, we’ve got comfortable couches from where you can watch your child kick, punch and box away their excess energy.
