Skillz Martial Arts

For the kids martial arts classes we run Melody  Shuman's Skillz Martial Arts drills which take into account the abilities of different age groups. While aiming for fitness and learning self defence Skillz Martial Arts drills bring in an element of fun into what can sometimes be repetitive when training in martial arts.  

Each term we also have a Life Skillz word for the students to consider along with a work sheet and a Life Skillz badge on completion of the work sheet.

All students aged 7 and over grade for a club certificate in mixed martial arts (MMA) and a World United Martial Arts Federation (WUMA) certificate.  Gradings are three times a  year at the end of each term.

The classes run are age specific with Early Skillz (ages 3 to 4), Basic Skillz (ages 5 to 6), Core Skillz (ages 7 to 9) and Extreme Skillz (ages 10 to 14). 

We are currently taking on no more students in the kids classes.  If you would like your child/children to learn martial arts please contact us via the contact us page to be added to the waiting list for the summer term in April 2019.
