Here at Garfield Martial Arts, we have 2 types of kids Martial Arts classes, Gracie Jiu-Jitsu and Muay-Thai Kickboxing.
A Brazilian Martial Art that teaches you how to subdue a larger/stronger opponent, using their own weight (+gravity) to defeat them.
Our Kids Gracie Jiu-Jitsu classes (ages 4-15) range in time from 30 to 45 minutes depending upon the child’s age, and each class is geared towards the individual needs of the student, based on his or her age.
Each class begins with running laps, crab & bear crawls, as well as other warmups specific to Jiu-Jitsu. These warm up exercises help to protect your child from injury, while increasing their cardiovascular health.
Next, the instructor teaches and review self-defense techniques, and conducts role-playing exercises with the students, so that they are familiar with real world the elements of real-world self defense situations.
After training, we play games specific to Jiu-Jitsu to help your son or daughter to continue mastering the movements of Jiu-Jitsu – while being sure to HAVE SOME FUN!
In addition to great physical training for your kids, our Jiu-Jitsu program also includes Martial Arts philosophies that empower them in life.

Muay Thai Kickboxing
A Thailand based Martial Art that uses hands, feet, knees and elbows, with the addition of on-balancing techniques, for a complete standup self defense system.
Our Kids Muay Thai Classes (ages 5-15) are 1 hour each – and begin each day with running-warm ups and stretching exercises. These warm ups help to protect our children from common injuries that are usually overlooked by other schools.
Then, our junior-students, learn a new technique and pair off with a partner of similar age and size to practice what they’ve learned. Our programs are designed to encourage greatness and discourage bullying and aggressive behaviors.
Kids are INCREDIBLE and they never cease to amaze us with their strength and focus in our classes.
