Karate for Kids 8 – 12
Martial Arts Classes for Kids 8 and up!
Now over 4,500 happy students and parents since 1990!
We have taught thousands of children Karate in Ancaster, Dundas and Hamilton since 1990 . . . and now many have their own children – and are bringing their kids to us! Our classes for ages 7-12 are fun, yet structured and disciplined and will build your child’s Self-Control and Confidence.
“Our daughter has been involved in karate for about 5 years. What has she learned??? Besides skills, she has learned about respect, confidence, dedication and hard work. She has learned what it means to set personal goals and succeed. She has been taught by some excellent instructors and has learned so much from each of them, and always in a positive environment. We have been so impressed by how much personal discipline and focus she has developed as she continues to work towards reaching higher belt levels – she takes care of herself, works hard, sets personal goals, and has pride in herself. Her self confidence has increased and she has made a personal commitment to herself to stay strong and we know that karate has helped her achieve and maintain this goal. She does not give up – she knows that she has to work hard and push herself, but she has learned that reaching her goals is the best reward, and we are very proud of her accomplishments. And we know that Premier Martial Arts has played a monumental role in her development and success.”

This program teaches the students the basic martial arts and self defense techniques including blocks, punches, kicks, and stances. It is a program that allows us to teach the student how to be martial artists, developing them to be a black belt from the inside out. Our Children’s Programs are based on the core values of PMA Martial Arts training – “Martial Arts begins and ends with Respect.” From this basic premise, we develop your child’s awareness and skills in three primary areas – A Respect Attitude, Self Discipline and Self Control. Our core curriculum includes hi-energy drills and skills designed to build and condition each child’s attitude, behavior and overall character development. Most important, classes are fun and exciting for every child.
Practical Self-Defense & Safety Awareness…
We also stress non-violent conflict resolution, how to avoid dangerous situations and practical techniques for getting away from a range of situations – being cornered, being grabbed and being tackled to the ground. Our practical self-defense skills include karate, kickboxing and on the ground grappling defense. Your child will be taught that their self defense skills are for self-defense only, and our students have a clear understanding of being responsible for their actions and attitudes.
Leaders are always Victors and never Victims…
Kids who learn to defend themselves usually will never have to. They have learned to walk with confidence and are less apt to be a prime target for bullies and/or abductors. Kids with a high level of self-confidence are also better able to deal with negative peer pressure and “Say No” to dangerous situations and threatening adults.
