Martial Arts Monkeys:
A wonderful first step into a journey of a lifetime!

The Martial Arts Monkeys Program is a detailed curriculum that focuses on improving preschool age children’s basic motor and listening skills.  These skills will help them enter society with a more confident and enthusiastic outlook. They will become better students at school, better listeners at home and more ambitious towards the future. We believe the time between the ages 4 and 6 are the most important years of a child’s development. Our program will enhance positive development in a fun and motivating way.

Monthly themes will inclue Life Skills, Safety Skills and Personal Skills that will benefit your child in all areas of their lives.

Life Skills


Your child will learn to share, take turns and work with their classmates and instructors in a positive way.


Your child will learn to be confident but polite.  Students will be more respectful at home and school.


The structure and tradition of the martial arts will help your child improve their self-discpline.


These are just a few of the Life Skills taught in the Martial Arts Monkeys program.  Upon completion of our Martial Arts Monkeys Program, your child will become focused and motivated to achieve any goal they set in life!


Fire Safety
Your child will learn what to do in the case of a fire at home in their school.

Traffic Safety
Your child will learn why it is important to be careful around traffic, why they should sit in their car seat and wear a helmet when riding their bike.

Stranger Awareness
Students will learn to recognize strangers and what to do if approached, what to do if they get lost and how to stay safe.


Safety Skills are more and more important in our ever changing world.  We will help your child develop the knowledge and confidence to stay safe.


As they work through the moments, your child will benefit from improved balance, body posture, and technique.

Martial arts is an excellent form of exercise, helping kids stay healthy and improve their physical fitness.

Through regular practice and repetition, your child will learn the importance of good technique, which will increase their athletic ability.

Your child will participate in various drills that will help them maintain and improve their flexbility.


Martial arts sometimes get a bad rap. People often falsely associate it solely with Hollywood kicks and punches, but fail to realize that the main thing martial arts teach is life skills. While self-defense is one aspect, martial arts goes far beyond that. Not only does it help develop self-confidence and self-esteem, it also builds a sense of respect for others and encourages non-violent conflict resolution! Martial arts teach socialization skills to diffuse tense situations rather than actively engage in them.
