Little Martial Arts - About Us

Our Story

Hello there and thank you for checking out our website. I'm David Vernon, founder of Little Martial Arts.

After many years of running a traditional martial arts club for 7yo+ kids and adults, it became obvious that there was a real need for a specialised program that catered for the little ones. .

We turned the traditional way of teaching the older kids on its head. We made the sessions game based and super fun. Something our own kids, and as it turns out, thousands of other kids, will love and want to keep doing. We "sneak" the skills into these games at what we call "skill points" where we can pay one on one attention to each child as the others are running through the course.

The kids love it, they're learning great skills, and families are happy. 

It's a winner program if I do say so myself :)

DRAGONS - Ages 2 & 3

This is FUN!

Parents are on the floor with their kids guiding them through an exciting program of obstacles, martial arts skills and games.

NINJAS - Ages 4 & 5

Done without a parent on the floor (still watching in the same room though)

Still loads FUN, lots of skill based games but much more emphasis on gaining quality martial arts skills.

WARRIORS - Ages 5 & 6

This is the one for the adventurous. A higher skill set to suit the average 6 year olds and the more "mature" confident 5 year olds.
