Future Kidz

The Future Kidz program was specifically designed to target the stages of development of 4 to 6 year olds. The curriculum in the Future Kidz Program includes years of research and development proven effective for this age group. Our goal for the Future Kidz Program is to maximize the effectiveness of each participants training with valuable lessons that will enhance their life.

What is the Future Kidz Program?

The Future Kidz Program is a preliminary martial arts training course that focuses on building 4 to 6 year olds capabilities; physically, emotionally, socially, and intellectually. We call our program "Future Kidz" because it will help shape each student's life in a way that will positively enhance their future. We are confident in what our program can do for your child.

Children this age are in a unique growth period in their life. They are refined in their gross motor skills, while establishing a foundation in basic fundamental skills. These basic fundamental skills include: focus, teamwork, control, balance, memory, discipline, fitness, and coordination. In any other sport or activity, all of these 8 skills are important to have. The more exposure to proper development in each of these skills, the better your child will be. For this reason, we have tailored a 9-level training course that increases the intensity of each skill at every level.

In the Future Kidz Program, your child will train in an environment that is just right for them. They will train with other children in their age group, and not have to be limited or overwhelmed by younger and older children. Each class will accommodate every student's skills and abilities in a way that is not overly demanding or intimidating. That means more age-specific instruction with better results. We guarantee it!

Here's how the program works


The 8 fundamental skills selected for the Future Kidz Program were broken down into specific requirements that each student must tackle at every belt level. There are 9 belt levels in total, which means that your child will dramatically progress through all 8 skills. This means your child will be sharper, more focused, and better developed physically, mentally, emotionally, and socially than a child who does not participate in a program strategically designed like the Future Kidz program.

Here are the 8 fundamental skills in order (Click on a Skill to see the detailed description):

  • Focus
