Children's Martial Arts7 - 11 year olds
Junior Kung Fu Class Structure
The Kung Fu classes we provide for our junior members are the result of 10 years of constant refinement and improvement. With a single goal of providing our junior members with all of the tools required to empower them physically, mentally and emotionally. Our Childrens Martial Art classes are a vehicle through which a child can discover confidence and learn about the importance of persisting with endeavors that they may find difficult. Self defence is an essential and inherent part of what we do. Anti bullying skills, danger awareness, conflict avoidance and character development are deeper skills that are taught in each and everyone of our childrens Martial Arts classes.
The physical skills our junior members learn will continue to benefit throughout their lives, as we are laying the foundation for their coordination, mobility, flexibility and strength.
The mental skills gained through learning Jow Gar Kung Fu will see them excel in other areas of their life. Improved focus, goal setting, calmness and determination will spread through everything that they do.
Emotionally our students exude confidence, they are resilient to torments from others because of their understanding of their self worth. With continued practice of kung fu our students become very balanced, mature and centered young people.
We tailor our Childrens Martial Arts classes to be fun, engaging and exciting which keeps them coming back for more.

Jonathan's dad here. I have been meaning to let you know about what a great benefit your Kung Fu teachings have been to Jonathan.
For most of last year Jonathan was the victim of sustained bullying both psychological but more worryingly it was also physical (some of it quite disturbing) by a group of children at his school. Jonathan was a most unhappy child at the time. He was not the only one to suffer this treatment.
As parents, we are not precious about the usual schoolyard antics and neither is he but we heard about his misery every day. Jonathan is not aggressive so tried every way to reason with the offending group of kids. I'm sad to say that numerous discussions with teachers made no difference as they were powerless to stop it although they really tried and agreed that this was getting way past out of hand. After exhausting all other options we finally counselled him to stand up to the ringleader of the group but he did not have the confidence. Kung Fu changed all that.
At the start of this school year, the group set upon one of Jonathan's close friends. His friend is a very gentle boy and had also been on the receiving end of some very vicious bullying. The ringleader had Jonathan's friend in a headlock and then smashed the boys face into the ground, splitting his lip...
I must say that I was a very proud parent when I received a call from the school with a blow by blow account of what happened next. Jonathan sprang to his weaker friend's defence. Lets just say he sorted the situation out both physically and verbally. The ringleader was left with a clear understanding that his behaviour was not acceptable and will be tolerated no longer. Jonathan does not get bullied by these children any more. They leave his friends alone when he is around but sadly sometimes still try it on with them when he isn't there. Again, Jonathan is not an aggressive person but this was absolutely the last resort.
He is now a happy little school kid, as he should be.
Please let me express my thanks to you and please express my gratitude to your great team of instructors. Let me assure you that what you are teaching is so very valuable and has made a real difference to my boy's life (and it will continue to do so).
Hi Nathan, You and all of the instructors are so passionate and so engaged with what you do and you have such great relationships with the kids. I love hearing the boys talk about lessons learnt at kung fu sometimes a week or two after they’ve been there. You take a really wholistic view of the development of children and as a parent that is much appreciated.
Summer is really enjoying the training and its so good to see her interested in something physical as sport hasn't really been her thing. As I mentioned Summer had to have spinal fusion at 13 as her scoliosis was increasing rapidly, she wore a brace since 5 years old. Summer has been swimming and tried soccer when she was younger but is more into her art and drama so to see her having a go at something has been so nice for us. As you may have noticed her flexibility is terrible as she has been quite stubborn and never wanted to do any exercises so thank you for providing such an encouraging environment for to learn and enjoy Kung Fu.
