PRESCHOOL KARATE

Our Lil’ Eagles Program is geared toward preschoolers ages 3 to 6. The students learn basic martial arts skills through reinforced movement patterns, motivational activities and games. The children acquire listening skills and are instructed in exercise that develops their stabilizers, core, balance and coordination necessary for preparing their minds and bodies for activities later in life and serves as a foundation of health and fitness.

We conduct our classes in the late afternoons and weekends to best accommodate your busy schedules.
Fitness, Focus and Fun are the Foundation for a successful childhood!

MARTIAL ARTS FOR CHILDREN

At American Eagle MMA & Kettlebells, we believe that everyone should understand, at the very least, the most basic tenets of self-defense. More than just a means of protecting one’s self, self-defense classes provide a well-rounded exercise regimen and can imbue your child with a strong sense of self confidence. Childhood is of course the most instructive point in a person’s life, and skills obtained in childhood remain ingrained forever. That’s why American Eagle MMA & Kettlebells has devoted its services to teaching kids self-defense. We believe it’s best to teach young people to protect themselves at an early age, so that the ability to defend one’s self remains permanently etched in their memories.

Our highly trained instructors understand that material taught in self-defense classes is often forceful or rough in nature. That’s why American Eagle MMA & Kettlebells instructors take a more hands-on, nurturing approach to teaching. We emphasize defense as merely that: defense, never to be used against another person. American Eagle MMA & Kettlebells’ well rounded program draws from a variety of martial arts sources, as well as various philosophies and basic common sense. We want our students to understand that good self-defense includes more than physical skill. Our program also emphasizes discipline, restraint, tolerance and respect.
