Juniors Classes

We run juniors classes in Taunton, Bridgwater and Wellington for 5-11 years. These classes are also open as family classes for those parents who struggle to fit childcare around their own training, or who just want to participate with their children's hobby. It is a great bonding opportunity and an excellent encouragement for the children when their parents get involved and help them with practising at home.

Parents are welcome to view the class in action and we encourage this for open parent-student-instructor dialogue. If your child is under 8 years old then we request that you stay on site for the duration of the class however, when they turn 8 years+ we are happy for you to drop them off and then collect them at the end of the session if you so wish.

A typical class will involve a joint warm-up, a CV warm-up (varying week to week but ranging from shuttle running to basketball, from pad-work to dodgeball to name a few), after this we move onto the technical part of the class and the grading syllabus. All our classes are fun but maintain a healthy respect level towards both the instructors and the other children. We pride ourselves on having an excellent group of students and have never had any bullying issues within our classes.

In our juniors classes your child will gain confidence and develop skills to tackle bullying. We encourage them to push themselves within the safe parameters of the class, knowing that their experiences with us in martial arts will set them on their way to a strong and confident pathway in life.

We ensure a high staff-to-child ratio to maintain excellent supervision levels whilst they train as we take safety very seriously. We also limit the amount to students we take on so that the children benefit from smaller group tuition.

Staff have training in child protection and safe guarding, first aid, play work, and are DBS checked. We welcome parents to request viewing our DBS records as we want to offer complete reassurance (in the entire 15+ years of teaching we have never had a parent ask to see our DBS records. For your peace of mind, please feel free to ask to see them at any time). Our Safeguarding Officer is Bryony Pengelly and she can be contacted on 07769 803357 at any time to discuss child protection concerns.

Our juniors classes are exceptionally popular and we do have waiting lists in place for some of the sessions however, if you are interested then we recommend getting in touch as we have additional new beginners classes starting up soon.
