This school was recommended by my co-worker back in 2013, who attended training session by Sifu Don. Initially, I was skeptical, due to previous unhappy experience, my son had at another "fighting" school located in the same town. Based on my discussion with Sifu and observations made during the initial visit, we decided to give IMAF school a try. What a huge change, from before. Now 4 years later, and 2 kids in attendance, we, as parents, can't be happier, My son's attitude toward training and learning significantly improved. He became more respectful and more calm and he is capable of defending not only himself, but also his friends. The little 6 years old, can't wait to go to the school and begging to attend classes even during days, which are dedicated to older students. Thank you Sifu Don, Deb, Sifu Anthony, for a wonderful job you have been doing at the school

Great for building incredibly fast hand speed, improving fitness, fantastic instructors. They have classes in Jeet Kun Do (Bruce Lee's art), Doce Pares mutli-system (stick fighting) Jiu Jitsu, and Muay Thai with elements from other martial arts as well, all integrated to make you any fighter become a whole new animal, and great for learning respect, coordination, and overall improved health and spiritual well being.

My 2 daughters have been training at IMAF for over 7 years... and we couldn't be happier with the school or training program. The instructors are top notch, the atmosphere is friendly, and the mixed martial arts training is world class. IMAF is like family... my girls have learned incredible skills, and have made friends for Life!

This place is absolutely amazing. My boys have been training with Sifu Don and Sifu Debbie since they were 4, now 12 and 14. They have not only learned a discipline in Martial arts but in life. Confidence, strong self esteem and the ability to achieve goals through hard work, focus and discipline. They still attend. Highly recommend.

We love IMAF for both our kids! My son gained the confidence to stand tall in the face of a bully situation at school with the guidance of the trained staff. Now on the demo team for the school, and winning awards at competitions, he is even more confident in his abilities. My daughter enjoys classes also. This is a fabulous family-run business that truly welcome students and families as one of their own.

Does Your Child Need A Supportive, Educational, and Fun Activity?

Learning Martial Arts Teaches Young Kids Life Skills While They Have Fun

Young children are curious and active – and they sometimes have difficulty learning to control their bodies and their behavior. They crave structure and thrive in an environment that’s supportive, educational, and fun.

Does your young child

struggle with these things?

They struggle to maintain control of their movements and may be unintentionally destructive.

They find it difficult to focus on a task or to see it through to the end.

They have a hard time sharing their belongings and getting along with other kids.

Parenting young children is a real challenge.

You must balance their natural inquisitiveness and high energy with trying to teach them the basic skills they need for school and life.

Discipline, sharing, and self-control are all things they need to learn to be successful.

The ideal setting is one that’s got some structure but works with kids at their current developmental level. If they have fun while they’re learning, they’ll be more likely to retain those lessons and learn the skills they need.

Results and growth with every class!

Studying martial arts is ideal for young children. It provides them with an outlet for their energy. But, it also teaches them about respect, discipline, and other core values that will go with them beyond the dojo. Junior martial arts classes teach kids to control their movements and behavior, and they’ll learn social skills and interaction at the same time.

Studying Martial Arts Builds Physical Coordination and Control

Young children who learn martial arts find out quickly that each movement must be intentional. They learn to control their movements to the best of their ability.

They also practice hand-eye coordination and learn about their bodies. That means they’ll be less likely to be unintentionally destructive.

Young Martial Arts Students Learn How to Focus

Getting young kids to pay attention can feel like an impossible task. The structure of our martial arts classes shows kids the importance of focus and teaches them by having them apply it to easily-achievable tasks.

The focus they learn in the dojo is something they’ll take home – and into the classroom. That’s why kids who study martial arts tend to be good students, too.

Martial Arts Helps Kids Learn to Deal with Frustration

Martial arts instruction requires students to pursue goals to earn new belts. Young kids can easily become frustrated when they don’t get what they want, but studying martial arts helps them learn the power of persistence.

The physical activity in our classes also helps kids manage stress and anxiety by allowing them to burn it off in a safe and constructive way.

Kids Who Study Martial Arts Learn Good Sportsmanship

Losing is not anybody’s idea of fun, but we all need to learn how to accept a defeat gracefully and move on. We teach students that losing is part of life – and it’s what you do after you lose that tells people who you are.

Even though martial arts is an individual sport, we cultivate an environment of supportive teamwork where students root for one another.

Such a great environment for kids! My kids look forward to every class! The instructors are amazing and so great with the kids! It's good to know that they are learning an important skill while having fun!

FAQs

My child still has temper tantrums and I’m worried about how they’ll behave in school. Can studying martial arts help?

Yes, it can. We help children learn the importance of emotional control and respect for others. These are lessons that will help them in the classroom, too.

Will studying martial arts help my child learn how to interact with others and share?

Yes. Even though studying martial arts is an individual pursuit, we teach kids to learn in a collaborative environment with an emphasis on sharing, cooperation, and teamwork.

My child zones out in class and misses important instructions. Can taking martial arts classes help them do a better job of focusing?

Yes. Part of martial arts training is teaching kids to be mindful of themselves and their surroundings. They must focus to succeed in class, and once they learn to do it, they’ll be able to do the same thing at school.

My child is out of control physically, and can be very destructive. How will studying martial arts help?

Martial arts instruction focuses on hand-eye coordination, control, and strength. As kids learn basic moves and then advance, they learn how to control their bodies and movements.

My child gives up easily when frustrated. I want them to learn persistence. Can your classes help?

Yes. It’s common for students to require more than one attempt to earn a new belt. We teach them that trying is the most important thing – and that persistence pays off.

My child is disrespectful to me and to other caregivers. How can studying martial arts change that?

Respect is at the core of everything we do in the dojo. Kids who study martial arts must respect their instructors and fellow students, and we find that they learn to respect parents, teachers, caregivers, and siblings at the same time.

More Benefits

Kids learn how to listen respectfully to others without interruptions.

Our students learn the value of discipline as they pursue clearly-defined goals.
