Our kids martial arts program introduces kids aged 3–6 to martial arts in a fun and friendly manner. With our knowledgeable and highly trained instructors, your kids will learn basic IMA techniques while working through our grading system. IMA is based on Taikwando and incorporates Kickboxing, Muay Thai, Brazillian Jui Jitsu and MMA, so your kids will have lots of variety in their classes. All you'll need to do is ensure you're kids wear clothing they can stretch and sweat in, and bring some drinking water with them. You're very welcome to stay to watch the class and mingle with other parents, or you can attend to your errands if you need to. Our classes run all year round (including school holidays), with a small break between Christmas and the New Year.
