HMC also offers classes for children ages 5-17. The focus in these classes is on having fun in a safe environment where children are able to develop their motor skills, coordination, good discipline, and where they learn to respect their elders.
The approach is a practical, philosophical, one based on the idea that training in martial arts develops a child’s character. Martial arts teach self-respect, self-esteem, self-control, self-confidence, self-discipline, self-worth, self-commitment, and self-development. Children learn to cooperate with others through positive socialization; they learn that being selfish does not win friends and that exercise is important to their health.
Please refer to the general class schedule for days and times of the kids classes.
