At Maximum Athletics, we've put together a fantastic Kids Martial Arts program that designed for kids of every age and every interest. So whether your child is pre-school, high school or anything in between, we've got a class that's just right!

  • Kids MMA

The lessons that children learn in our MMA Kidz program help them grow into champions. Champions in life as well as on the mat. It teaches them self confidence and discipline. Your kids will be able to more effectively handle problems, including bullying. We get your kids ready for life’s challenges as well as presenting them with a healthy outlet for their emotion. Your kids will become acclimated to maintaining a neat appearance, focusing, and maintaining a positive attitude.

  • Kids Brazilian Jiu Jitsu

This is a program where your child will learn skills within a safe, healthy, and exciting environment. Your child will be taught the proper tradition, etiquette, and respect of the Martial Arts. They will learn skills such as how to listen, make eye contact, speak at appropriate times, and respectful behavior such as, “Yes, sir” or “No, sir” to their instructors, parents and classmates.

As with the fundamentals class, Maximum Athletic's kids class incorporates the same jiu jitsu first taught at the original Gracie academy in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil during the 1960's. The class is designed to prepare students for both self-defense, and sport jiu jitsu while at the same time improving cardiovascular endurance, balance, attention span, focus, discipline, and coordination.

  • All Stars

All Stars is our largest group of TKD students. That being said, there are several meetings so we can address the needs of every child. We offer Basic and Intermediate/Advanced classes. Basic is our beginner class (white/yellow/orange belts), making it a great starting point for any child just getting into TKD. Our Advanced/Intermediate class (green-black belts) is the beginning of a lifelong skill and rewarding path to the many wonders of martial arts. We teach the core values of commitment, self-esteem, respect, validation, integrity, self-control, compassion, and perseverance.

  • Lil' Ninjas

The Lil' Ninjas program was created to aid in the growth of your preschool aged child. This is our jump-start program into the world of Taekwondo. Your child will see an increase in core values of the Max Mindset through manners, respect, and discipline. This class is purposefully set to a specific time to help aid in the growth of attention span. Also through Taekwondo, body control will also be drastically improved. This is a streamline course where it works in conjunction with our All Stars class. Our Lil' Ninjas move on to become bright and skilled All Stars.


We don't just teach Kids Martial Arts. We help them excel in all areas of their life. Just take a look at what you can expect when your child enrolls in the Kids Martial Arts classes at Maximum Athletics:

  • Your child's attention span and ability to focus will dramatically improve, leading to better performance and grades in school
