Martial Arts Instruction in Elizabeth City & Hertford, NC
Youth Martial Arts
At Tinsley Family Martial Arts Center we offer kids’ and children martial arts classes in both Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Taekwondo. We also have an age appropriate program for even 4-5 year olds, "Little Ninjas/Little Champions." These programs focus heavily on teaching children martial arts in a fun, exciting, positive, playful manner. Classes include techniques, physical drills, games, and live training. At our academy, we emphasize not only the fundamental technical elements of martial arts, but also on character development. In each class, our instructors reinforce the value of being helpful, self-disciplined, and respectful–both in and out of the academy. The Tinsley Family Martial Arts Center Kids’ Program is the perfect way for your child to mature into an adult while learning practical self defense skills. It is also a great way for him or her to make friends, get exercise, and have fun. Our Kids’ Martial Arts program will teach your child perseverance–a skill that will extend far beyond the class environment. Though many of our young students compete in tournaments, our program is less focused on the win/lose contest philosophy, and instead emphasizes the development of a hard work ethic, and a positive attitude.
