Junior Programs

Mini Muay Thai (ages 3-7):

Start them young; improve their focus, coordination and confidence, all while having lots of fun. This is the class where it all began when Kru Giles started JMT 10 years ago for his then 3 year old daughter and friends. Now, many of those same minis are the teenage coaches who teach the current crop of young students.

 

 

Kids Muay Thai (ages 6-11):

Fun-filled, dynamic classes that teach kids a powerful effective martial art and the respect, confidence and self-control that go hand-in-hand with it.

 

 

Teens Muay Thai (ages 11-16):

A transition from junior to adult Muay Thai, with more advanced concepts and drills, as well as a wonderful sense of camaraderie and support from other teens.

 

 

Kids Taekwon-Do (ages 6-16):

At JMT we teach the original ITF style of Taekwon-Do. This beautiful and fun martial art places an emphasis on self development and self defense not just sports competition.

 

The Tenets of Taekwon Do, that the kids recite at the beginning of every class, sums it up nicely: Courtesy, Integrity, Perseverance, Self Control, and Indomitable-Spirit.

 

 

Junior Competition Team (7-16):

For more advanced students who like the idea trying their hand at competition. These classes are carefully structured to build a students skills and confidence so that they can eventually compete in the ring.

 

Protective equipment is worn and no-head contact is allowed for young students as they work on developing fight intelligence rather than aggression.
