KRAV MAGA OTTAWA offers classes specificaly adapted to the needs of children age 8 to 14. Our approach and pedagogy is so unique that Instructors need to receive special training in order to be able to teach kids. We create a safe environment in which children can learn essential self-defense skills while having fun and building their confidence.
Children today are faced with many problems: bullying at school, cyber-bullying, harassment, peer pressure and in the worse cases kidnapping and abuse. We put much emphasis on education and prevention and we teach first and foremost non-violent, assertive solutions to a wide range of threats. Our program is taught in the same manner to thousands of children in 60 different countries and has been so well received that in Israel, Krav Maga is taught in schools as a full program of the Minister of Education.
Your child will learn confidence, respect, self-discipline and of course self-defense skills that are adapted to real-life situations.
We have a belt system for children so that they can progress within our method and one day be ready to join the adult classes.
