Here at Unlimited Martial Arts in Brooklyn, New York, we offer top-notch martial art classes for your child. We provide children with a foundation in Jeet Kune Do (JKD), the martial art system of the late Bruce Lee based on a mixture of boxing, Muay Thai kickboxing, Wing Chun, Brazilian jiu-jitsu, and Kali (Filipino martial arts). We teach children a basic skill set in these arts while emphasizing gross motor movements to improve your child’s agility, physical endurance, and body awareness. By intermixing technical skill application with fun, age appropriate games, kids learn hand-eye coordination and team building skills. Most importantly, we give each child the chance to demonstrate their unique leadership abilities. As they progress in the arts, we give them opportunities to lead by example. From demonstrating techniques to new students to making sure no teammate is left behind during warmups, each child becomes a leader while helping others.

In our Little Dragons’ class, we also address the many issues of modern-day bullying. We teach students to decelerate conflict through verbal communication as part of our anti-bullying program. Children build confidence in themselves by seeing their progress over time. Consistency, discipline, and dedication are values that our students learn and put into practice. At the same time, they learn how to navigate social challenges through nonviolent conflict resolution. We hope to instill within each child a respect for themselves and others. We have no doubt that their love of the martial arts will help them thrive through their journey into into adulthood.
