Children’s Martial Arts & More

Effective January 16, 2021, the Children's class is on hiatus until further notice.

We look forward to welcoming current and new students back to the studio later this year.

Every Saturday from 9:30 to 10:15 a.m., I conduct a Children’s class at the Presidio studio for children 8 to 12 years old These classes are designed to not only teach your child to be physically safe, but also to share life tools that will help them with school and their relationship to others.

Being a father of seven children, I am aware of the issues that parents and children face around unhealthy behaviors and managing changes that occur in life and school, as well as safety concerns in today's society.

Here are some of the skills they will learn:

  • Being unafraid of bullies
  • Knowing how to speak up if someone is making them feel uncomfortable
  • Disciplining/Controlling their bodies and behaviors
  • Meditation practices
  • Noncompetitive self-defense
  • De-escalation practices
  • Street safety
  • The Art of Listening
  • Interactive learning through martial arts drills, games and practices
  • Learning the art of Kung Fu San Soo

If your child has ever participated in one of our one-day assault prevention classes, you know how effective our trainings can be. Every Saturday your child will learn skills which will keep him or her safe while also helping them in every aspect of life.

Time:  Saturdays 9:30 a.m. to 10:15 a.m.

Age:    8 to 12-year-olds

Price:   $100 per month (no contracts)

Enroll:   Contact us at with any questions.

See you Saturday!
