At Sandoval Karate in Tempe, Arizona, we offer comprehensive freestyle karate and mixed martial arts training for children. While we offer a broad spectrum of teaching in various martial art forms, we aim to shape young minds by instilling values of discipline, respect, and perseverance.
We offer specialized classes for various age groups. We offer mixed martial arts classes in Tempe for kids aged 4-6, 7-12, and 13+, with each class carefully curated to meet the specific needs of each age group.
Enrolling in our mixed martial arts classes will not just give your child self-defense skills. Each move, belt, and opponent sparred with will deliver personal growth, self-confidence, and resilience.
At our Tempe training facility, we offer diverse classes tailored to different age groups. Operating in this way ensures students receive instruction that aligns with their skill level and age-specific needs.
We use Karate, Kenpo, Taekwondo, Kickboxing, Muay Thai, and Tang Soo Do to deliver a well-rounded understanding of leading martial arts.
Our mixed martial arts classes for young children aged 4 to 6 are primarily focused on introducing the foundations of martial arts and relaying them in a fun and engaging way. Each session is just as much about creating enthusiasm for the guiding principles of martial arts as it is about learning each punch, kick, or throw.
Our experienced instructors tailor their teaching to ensure children hit regular milestones and achievements, keeping them focused and disciplined. While there’s a less intense focus on physical fitness, these classes give kids a headstart on their peers by increasing balance and coordination.
Parents will notice a marked change in our children’s beginner classes from our Little Dragon mixed martial arts training. As kids in this age bracket are older, they are better equipped to understand the techniques and focus for more extended periods.
These longer classes focus on developing form and perfecting the requisite skill sets. There’s an enhanced emphasis on self-defense and discipline, and, crucially, this is the age where we introduce sparring with their classmates. Progression at this age is faster, and we expect rapid improvements from our class members.
Classes at this age offer a much more intensive martial arts experience and incorporate the more rigorous elements from art forms, including Kenpo, Taekwondo, and Muay Thai, to name just a few.
Classes in this age bracket focus more on physical fitness and self-awareness, pushing students to reach their peak potential. Teens attending martial arts classes also gain a lot from the mental benefits of martial arts, developing discipline, resilience, and interpersonal skills, ensuring holistic development for our teen participants.
Learning martial arts opens up doors to a more holistic upbringing. The multifaceted and multicultural elements of mixed martial arts training develop crucial traits, including respect, discipline, and confidence.
While the techniques learned in our location are important, the teaching we deliver transcends our four walls and helps develop a young person ready to face life’s complexities (and often hardships).
Mental and character benefits aside, mixed martial arts classes are great for physical fitness. At early ages, classes can transform motor skills and physical coordination. As children develop, they can subsequently benefit from the natural increases in strength and flexibility resulting from the often intensive nature of the sparring workouts.
What makes us different is that we are far more than a karate or martial arts school. We offer a space for individuals to transform themselves as human beings.
Our focus is very much on personal development as it is the skills and techniques of each martial art. We teach our students the art of respect and discipline in a warm and positive dojo environment that nurtures personal growth.
Guided by instructors with black belt certifications and a passion for teaching, you can rest assured that your child will receive the highest possible standard of martial arts training. Each kick, punch, and stance is expertly taught, bringing your little one closer to a healthier and more prosperous life.
