“I have been thoroughly impressed with the kind of training my son Saransh Jain have received from Wood’s Martial Arts since he joined there couple of years ago. He is now a very confident individual, physically strong, and have learned to respect others. He is continue to obtain success in his school. In fact, last year he was selected in the gifted program in his school and I would like to give Wood’s Martial Art a huge credit for his achievements.”

Little Champions Program (5-7 years old)




Little Champions (5-7 years old) Weekly Schedule

Little Champions classes and training also help your child as they enter Grade School, setting them up for success by increasing your child’s attention span, thus improving his or her ability to learn. This builds a sense of accomplishment and self-confidence. With each new accomplishment your child’s confidence grows – this is the first step in the empowerment of a child’s physical and mental abilities.

Our Little Champions classes are a great way for children ages 5-7 to get introduced to Martial Arts. Focus, concentration, listening, respect and courtesy are stressed in order to develop a child’s basic learning abilities. The exercise and physical fundamentals are challenging and a great way for kids to gain flexiblity, balance and strength. We understand the importance of fun and variety to maintain high interest and participation.

“My son has learned to be confident, kind and compassionate in large part thanks to the lessons taught by the incredible instructors at Premier Martial Arts. It was a proud moment as a parent to see him achieve his Black Belt this past March – what an awe-inspiring accomplishment! I really can’t say enough about everyone at PMA – they are like an extended family and they genuinely care about each and every one of their students as they help them reach their goals class by class. Thank you Premier Martial Arts – you’re the best!”  ~Sheila Dundas, Ontario

Weekly Class Schedule

Now over 5,500 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.GirlBlock_Cropped“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.”~Laura and Kevin Ancaster Ontario~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.
