Kids Self-Defense & Bully Prevention
It’s time to give our kids the CONFIDENCE they need to deal with the real world out there!
We believe that children should have both physical and verbal tools so they won’t be picked on by other kids or picked out as a target by a predator!
Welcome to the A.C.W.A. Kids program! In this program we will teach your child to stop/de-escalate/resolve/handle conflict through use of both words and the creation of physical boundaries, but if necessary, as a last resort, the use of very effective defensive skills. We teach our kids not only how to defend themselves from BULLIES, but also a host of Anti-Abduction skills since as they grow up, you won’t always be around. Gain the peace of mind to know that you’ve given them the training they need to get home safe!

Kids train with parents – Most times we have the child work with their parent. This helps the parent know what the child is learning and builds another unique bonding experience. We will have instructors on the floor as well to help you each step of the way. This is by far the most requested feature of our classes, both kids and parents love this!
Layers of training – We teach your child how to maintain their cool when angry, how to respond appropriately to someone that may be mad at them, and how to really listen to what others are communicating. We use training drills, pad hitting, games, and discussion topics to fully engage your child and keep the class both fun and educational at the same time
It’s reality based – We are all about practical movement that will keep your child safe. That said, we also do not wear traditional outfits, instead, we wear a black academy t-shirt, blue jeans, and shoes we can move in. This sets the mindset of what we are training!
What ages will you accept? – Children from 4-12 are accepted into the kids program.
Space is limited – Unlike many schools, we only take 12 children in the program at any one time so we can concentrate on helping them! Normally we have a waiting list as a result. Call or message us to see about getting your child in today.
The issue of bullying and verbal harassment is a problem that is not going away. It’s time to equip our kids with the skills they need to confront these issues. These are the very things I teach my children and the very concepts I used when I was bullied in school myself.”
