YOUTH SELF DEFENSE
Ditch the Rituals
We’re about Self Defense for the Real World
A 2009 survey of almost 1,500 martial arts schools in the United States found that only half offered self-defense training – second to teaching other cultural and historical training. And while the sword, nunchaku and staff look great in movies and demonstrations, they’re not practical in real-life situations.
SELF CONFIDENCE AND PROTECTION SHOULDN’T WAIT FOR ADULTHOOD
Your child shouldn’t have to wait to feel secure when they can learn the techniques and knowledge they need to defend themselves today.
Our training builds reflexes and empowers your child with techniques that are proven to work in real situations. That’s why, instead of teaching ancient tradition, we focus on situations children face, like bullying and peer pressure.
As your child progresses, they will learn how to defend themselves against more complex situations. This includes scenarios with multiple attackers, attackers with weapons and even kidnappers, all of which are unfortunately becoming increasingly common.
The best self defense habits are those developed at a young age and refined over time. By joining our dedicated youth program at Combat Mindset, your child can enjoy the same benefits and empowerment in the face of bullying and other issues every single day.
EMPOWER YOUR CHILD TO TAKE CONTROL AT ANY AGE
Many children feel helpless, depressed and anxious due to bullying and other issues they encounter on a regular basis. But with self defense training, you can eliminate these issues while building confidence in the process.
Our classes are available 7 days per week at our studio, making it easy for your child to attend, even with the busiest schedule. And when they do, they’ll find a fun, safe environment to learn how to face the problems they experience daily and how to handle dangerous situations that are becoming increasingly common, such as abduction.

A Mission Made in Your Child’s Best Interest
Our mission is to give your child the skills and confidence necessary to deal with any situation they may encounter, and the mental wherewithal to know which “next step” actions are appropriate. In just a brief 90 days, your child will have a new level of confidence and the capability to defend themselves in common threat situations. They’ll never have to feel helpless or hopeless again.
For children, self defense often comes in the form of martial arts. And though learning the history, culture and elaborate technique of any martial arts philosophy is exciting, it won’t prepare kids for the situations they face on a regular basis.
Just consider these statistics from PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center:
- 22 percent of students report being bullied during the school year.
- 64 percent of children who are bullied don’t report it.
- 57 percent of bullying instances only stop when a peer intervenes on behalf of the child being bullied.
But, why should bullying stop only because a peer intervenes on a child’s behalf? Why shouldn’t every child have the skills and knowledge to defend him or herself, stopping bullying at the source?
At Combat Mindset, we believe they should.
Our self defense classes for kids are designed to handle these same situations. Through age-appropriate techniques derived from styles such as Muay Thai and Krav Maga, your child will learn how to stand up to bullies, resist peer pressure and stand up for themselves in any other violent or uncomfortable situation.
Shouldn’t they have the confidence to do so? We think so, and you should too.
Learning Doesn’t Have to be Boring
And for kids, it should never be. That’s why the primary goal of all of our Youth Programs is to develop a solid foundation of basic self defense techniques and actions for any dangerous situation – as well as consequences for misuse – in a safe, fun and motivational environment!
Each of our classes are grouped by age, allowing us to custom-tailor the focus of each lesson to the developmental needs of each age group. We focus solely on practical, age appropriate solutions for the types of situations kids age 6 and up face in the modern world.
And we do it from day one…

WHAT CLIENT'S SAY
Rosemary J / real estate agent
The workshop was amazing! I learned I had been living with a false sense of security and the psychology of a crime can be even scarier than the crime itself…
Jessica K / legal assistant
Very good classes. They teach real world applications for fighting and focus on situational fighting, rather than form alone.
Haylee J / student
Most people go through life without much thought about their personal safety, or what they would do in a bad situation. This class really opened my eyes.
Jason B / parent
We enrolled our daughter to protect herself for the rest of her life. As a parent, it’s the best life insurance policy out there. Thank you Michael!
