A FEW WORDS

From Stephane D'Amour

Hi, I'm Stephane D'Amour, Owner / Head Instructor here at Mixed Martial Arts & Fitness Academy.

As a Martial Arts Instructor with a broad teaching experience training kids in the Kanata / Stittsville area for the last 19 years, there is nothing better than seeing your child improve in class.

Because learning martial arts as a kid has much more to  it than some may think. Children that learn martial arts at MMAFA are taught much more than kicking, punching or getting their next belt.

It's all about teaching children focus and dicipline, and in this age of distractions and sensory overload, this is a skill that shows immediate results in your child's daily life.

Our classes are well structured and lots of fun with an emphasis on giving positive feedback while learning self defense.

So please read below and find out how your kids can benefit from our martial arts programs.

Thank you and see you on the mat!

BJJ TEACH KIDS THE IMPORTANCE OF DISCIPLINE AND RESPECT

By respecting the learning process, which is fundamental to BJJ, Kids can develop the same respect for teachers and other authority figures in other walks of life. In effect, this could (and should) accelerate their education through schooling and their career in the future.

YOUR CHILD WILL LEARN HOW TO BE RESPONSIBLE

One of the biggest problems parents struggle with is teaching children how to be responsibe.

We can try and reinforce its importance over and over again but when a child learns it for himself/hersefl and actually applies it in his/her life, it makes our job so muc easier.

With BJJ, your child will learn, that over time, following instructions, applying his/herself, and listening pays off. How? By doing all of the above, your child will find that he/she gets better at BJJ.

BULLY-PROOF YOUR CHILD WITH BJJ

As parents, you probably dread the day your child comes home in tears because of a bully. Although most children will experience bullying at some point in their lives, it doesn't mean that it should be a rite of passage.

When your children learn BJJ, they will learn how to defend themselves should they ever find themselves in a compromising situtation.

More importantly, BJJ will teach them that violence isn't the answer and that self-defence techniques should only be used as their last options.

MARTIAL ARTS HELPS CHANNEL

YOUR CHILD ENERGY

Children tend to feel restless on a regular basis when they don't have a way to release all that excess energy. Martial Arts gives your child a positive way to release it while improving themselves. As a result, it will be easier for your child to focus on important things such as school, homework and daily chores.

GET YOUR KIDS AWAY FROM THEIR SMARTPHONES AND VIDEO GAMES

Kids today are bombared with more technology than any generation that ever existed. While many modern devices enrich our lives, then can have a negative effect on us when our lives begin to revolve around them.

Martial Arts is the perfect way to get kids off their couches and away from their devices. It will build muscle and increase their cardiovascular performance, ensuring that your child is fit and healthly.
