The Krav Junior program is considered the most comprehensive self-defense & anti-bullying program available in the world today. The program covers all aspects of self-defense training for kids, from the physical and technical aspects, to the educational aspect (self-control, violence prevention, functioning under stress etc.), to simulation training. Our age specific classes are fun, exciting, and most importantly, they equip kids with the tools needed to be successful in school and in life.
Krav Junior students have access to instruction tailored specifically to their developmental level. We know that a 4-year-old learns very differently from an 8-year-old or a 12-year-old, so we provide in-person & online classes, and a curriculum designed specifically for different age groups.
Three to five year old’s love physical activity and anything involving play. They have a rich imagination and strong desire to be less dependent on their usual caregivers. The problem we discovered is that many children this age have a hard time with structure in a group environment like what is commonly found in most Martial Arts schools. The solution we found is to provide them with their own program that targets their stage of development in a manner that keeps them entertained while at the same time building skills that set them up for success. With that said, a structured program introducing early skill-based training in Martial Arts has proven to be very successful.
Youth Division (Age 6-8)
Six to eight-year old’s are the most enthusiastic students. They love creativity and problem solving, which makes them ideal students in the Martial Arts.They are proficient in their vocabulary and problem-solving skills, yet they are not at the age where they want complete independence from adults. This makes the teacher-student relationship stronger than ever. Introducing core skill-based self-defense training for this age group has proven to be very successful.
Junior Division (Age 9-12)
Nine to twelve-year olds are physically competent and can excel in most physical challenges that are presented to them. The problem we discovered is that they are focused on what is socially acceptable, and they have a hard time keeping themselves emotionally driven to the task at hand. The solution we found is to provide them with their own program that targets their stage of development in a manner that nurtures their social and emotional stability while at the same time building self-defense and anti-bullying skills that set them up for success.
