Our class specifically designed for children ages 3½ to 5 years meets Fridays from 1:30-2:05pm; however, we are not currently offering this class due to COVID-19 restrictions.

At Davis Square Martial Arts, our Kids Kung Fu classes emphasize paying attention, doing your best, treating everyone with respect, and having fun!

We work hard to create a positive learning environment where students can safely practice martial arts. Every child is encouraged to reach their own individual potential in their own unique way. Through listening and effort, the physical and mental discipline children develop in class will serve them throughout their lives.

With this youngest group, we focus on developing the physical and social skills necessary to be part of a group, all while safely exercising and having fun. The students are encouraged to work on their social skills (listening, focusing, turn-taking, communicating appropriately) as well as their physical skills (punching, kicking, rolling, jumping). Our instructors can help your child:

  • enhance their confidence and self-esteem.
  • develop discipline and self-control.
  • better their ability to listen, focus and concentrate.
  • improve physical strength, flexibility and coordination.

For children entering this group, we have them try out a free class first to determine if they are developmentally ready to join this group.

If you are interested in enrolling your child or have any questions at all, please contact our office manager, Jen Ferguson: jendsma@gmail.com
