Our kid’s classes are split into age groups. Our younger kids train together between the ages of 7-9. Types are at 5:15 pm on Mondays and Wednesdays and at 9:45 am on Saturdays. The older kids train together between the ages of 10-13. Types are at 5:15 pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays and at 10:30 am on Saturdays.
Upon signing up, kids will receive their uniform for free, from us, as a gift for choosing to join the Total Defense family. This includes a shirt, pants, belt, and wrist wraps. Any extra uniform clothing will have to be purchased as needed and any gear required for class. Examples of equipment would be shin guards, gloves, and whatever the instructor recommends.
Our kids’ classes train the same techniques as the adults; however, we do adjust the intensity of the training to suit their ages and skills. Learning Krav Maga is a privilege, and the skills learned must be used responsibly. Our kids know that Krav Maga is for self-defense only and is not to be used to be a bully or help a bully. Students here learn that respect for others and themselves is a crucial expectation of our gym.
If students are found not to be following these rules and expectations, they will not be allowed to train with us.
