We actually get this question less and less these days, but we still get it.   Our children’s martial arts program is rooted in a traditional korean martial arts system (styles like taekwondo and hapkido).  And, we now also teach the kids elements of brazilian jiu jitsu (grappling that’s great for self-defense) and muay thai kickboxing.    However, there’s something more important than “style”.  Martial Arts can be taught a lot of ways, but we focus on developing age appropriate skill sets in the children.  These are things that they can use beyond the training mats.  These are physical skills like speed and agility but also social skills like leadership and vision…just to name a few.
