Martial Arts class for 5yr old

Postby ForMyLittleMan » Sun Sep 16, 2018 4:13 pm

Hi there,

Does anyone have a recommendation of a Martial Arts class for kids that would be suitable for a 5yr old boy in the Clapham/Balham/Wandsworth area?

I have googled but would be great to get the views of people who have tried classes.

Thanks!

Jon Bailie at Clapham martial art (ex Semokwan hapkido) is great! My son is Black belt now and has been training with him for 8 years. Still going strong and enjoying the various trainings. I do recommend strongly

Definitely Jon - he taught my boy 8 years ago and goes from strength to strength. I serious professional approach but kids respect that - if they don’t make the grade they don’t pass the tests but they always get support to try again. And they learn when it is right to use martial arts - what are they for - defence not attack - and all sorts of side benefits like how to fall safely (great for skiing tumbles) here’s the link - scroll down for the timetable.

Ditto to all the above. My son has been going for five and a half years and has learnt so much.

Check out Choi Kwang Do on Garrat Lane.
Run by MA&Y. Mr Johnson is amazing with kids. More of a defence sport rather than a competitive one. I do it with my 10y old and he loves it. Starts at 5y old
