Kids and Teens Martial Arts
At Tristar Gym Vancouver we believe that knowledge of self-defense and the principles of martial arts should be mandatory for all people, especially children. When a child learns to defend themselves, they begin to stand differently, to walk differently and to speak with confidence and conviction. All of these things are necessary for them to grow into an effective and successful adult. At Tristar Gym Vancouver we aim to create well rounded kids and also well-rounded martial artists. In order to achieve this, our program focuses on the four disciplines of MMA; Boxing, Wrestling, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Muay Thai Kickboxing as well as overall coordination, flexibility and balance. These physical attributes are very important for a child’s development but nowhere near as important as the mental, emotional and spiritual attributes taught through the practice of martial arts. Through physical practice we are able to teach many lessons about discipline, respect, humility, courage, perseverance and confidence. It is in fact these lessons that we believe to be the true purpose of martial arts practice.
