At AVT MMA, we run martial arts classes for kids in Leeds to help our younger members – boys, girls and teenagers – to experience the benefits of these great sports in a safe and friendly environment.
We primarily focus on offering Muay Thai kickboxing and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu for kids, both of which are incredibly technical sports that require a huge amount of application and discipline from the students. We also have judo classes for kids on offer, and mixed martial arts for our more advanced juniors.
Any young person learning Muay Thai and BJJ will experience growth in many areas. We’re confident that we’ll be able to help anyone reach their full potential both physically and mentally through our BJJ kids classes and Muay Thai kids classes.
Many of the benefits that kids can enjoy are the same as those for adults including:
Building muscle and increasing flexibility; improving mental strength, memory and brain function; development of problem-solving skills; reducing stress and teaching patience; self-confidence booster; promoting healthy competition; making more friends; anti-bullying.
We start at age 4+, and our coaches are CRB checked and experienced in working with children. Head coach Tom is a registered childminder, with many years experience in providing fun yet challenging classes for the AVT Youth Team.
All new members are welcome to a 30-day free trial, and pay-as-you-go and membership options are available after that.
