in-person & ONLINE PROGRAM

In some ways its never been harder to be a child. Digital addiction, lack of physical activity and impaired communication skills are just some of the challenges facing children and parents in 2020. Traditional Martial arts provide children with the structure and attributes to become physically and mentally life capable.

TECHNOLOGY IS A POWERFUL TOOL – Lets put it to good use!


If we had our say, we would teach all children Martial arts – it is simply such a powerful tool for growth in the right environment.

We have found no better way to strengthen bodies, impart life lessons and develop the resilience necessary to meet life challenges.  At Martial Spirit, our junior programs are truly unique. Only our most experienced coaches instruct children.

Our programs also include formal training in 3 different arts; Aikido, Judo and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, allowing for specialisation in later years. These are taught using the structure and values of the traditional approach that has been preserved for hundreds of years in Asia.

“The unconditional support, encouragement, patience and discipline guided by Seniors and Sensei’s at Martial Spirit has given my once shy little girl the confidence to lead others. watching her grow into this strong little lady she’s becoming makes me so happy and proud of her achievements. She is learning martial arts and then there’s key valuable life lessons. Couldn’t thank you all enough.”

– Jenny Le

“Great place to train. I am amazed about how well all new students are being looked after by both instructors as well as the other students. At the slightest sign of not getting it, one of the more experienced kids comes showing how to do it. No bickering and no nonsense. And with a healthy dose of discipline it is great for my kids who also loves their new training.”

– Fredrik Tronnberg

Sprouts (3 – 7 Years)

There are tremendous benefits to introducing young children to the discipline of martial arts. Kids have a wealth of vibrant energy and in our highly acclaimed Sprout Program, we channel this energy to help children learn about movement, and lay the foundations for a healthy body and mind.

Sprout online sessions include agility and conditioning drills, falling skills, martial arts techniques and games. Classes are fun, entertaining and motivating. Parents also participate in the sessions to assist their children and share in the experience. We even have entire families joining us! We guarantee you will be smiling and laughing as hard as your children when you participate in your first session.

Thrive (8 – 14 Years)

Children thrive in supportive, nurturing environments that foster independence and encourage practical skills development. Our Thrive Program has an educational focus and is specifically designed to provide the foundations for future training by teaching students the basic principles of martial arts including Aikido, Judo and Brazilian Jiu-jitsu. In each class students will build strength and physical fitness, improve coordination, learn technical skills and practice those skills in play.

In the final third of the class, parents are invited to participate (Some even do the entire session!). This enables your child to accelerate their learning by practicing with another person safely at home. It will also get you involved in their practice. We take you step by step through drills and games that will improve your skills, get you fit and put a smile on your face! It also ensures your child has someone to share in this journey. By being a part of the class you will provide natural support to keep your child practicing and develop a deeper bond. The connections families make through these classes are proving to be a huge benefit.
