Matt Fiddes Martial Arts run two classes for children, both designed specifically for different age groups.
The Mighty Matts Programme is something really special designed to introduce young children aged from 3 to 6 to the fun and lessons that come from martial arts. Our goal is to nurture these young people in a safe environment and allow their characters and abilities to develop.
We believe that it is only proper to teach such young children in their own dedicated class without the distractions of older children. We want to give them the best possible martial arts education, support and care. We also believe that the early years are the most important and if you get them to understand the right values at this age you will set them up for life.
We teach the children how to develop respect and confidence, learn how to avoid strangers and pick up basic self-defence, how to avoid dangerous situations and how to defeat a bully without fighting.
The Junior Programme is for kids aged 7-11 and is designed to give your child everything they need to thrive in life from physical fitness and confidence through to improved school work and respect for others.
Our classes are loved by the students, parents and their teachers, because we make them fun and encourage the children to grow into young responsible adults in a natural way.
The Matt Fiddes Martial Arts Junior Programme works hand in hand with a child's schoolwork, providing improved self-discipline, self-confidence, concentration, mental alertness, co-operation, goal setting advice and anti-bully skills.
Our instructors work with their studentís teachers to make sure they are achieving in the classroom as well as the martial arts gym. This is one of our unique features and why we are so successful in working with children. We are educators and not just martial arts teachers and we run "schools" and not "clubs".
