Hurstville Martial Arts (HMA) prides itself on being the premier martial arts school in Hurstville area for children. We teach youth and teenagers the skills they need to succeed, while they learn to protect themselves. Our system and teaching methods are simply life-transforming, and will help your child to achieve any goal they set.
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) has been rapidly growing in popularity over the recent years as it is one of the few martial arts where it accentuates the importance of "technique" over "strength and power". This is why BJJ is commonly known as the "gentle art" - whereby a smaller and weaker person can achieve a superior position over a larger opponent with minimal force.
BJJ can teach your child effective techniques to defend themselves against a larger opponent and in self-defense situation. This can be all achieved with minimal impact to the opponent and, more importantly, to your child.
Here is a list of some benefits your child will receive just by being a part of our youth martial arts program:
Our Brazilian Jiu Jitsu classes provides a positive outlet for kids to release their energy. Our martial arts program also teaches children practical, essential, proven self defense skills. We explain to our students that the moves they learn in class will work, so they do not try them on their family members or neighbors. Put simply, our Hurstville Martial Arts (HMA) program emphasizes complete physical and mental development.
Numerous psychological studies have found that children in the six to fifteen year old range who study martial arts, have an increased sense of responsibility, are more reluctant to take foolish risks, and have a greater sense of self-esteem. This is why millions of parents are using martial arts to supplement their children’s education. Plus it’s just pure fun!
Since bullying is most prevalent in this age group, we teach the youth in these classes the most effective techniques and strategies they must know to defend themselves if physically attacked.
The best part about the techniques is that they are totally non-violent, and are only applied in response to the physical aggression of a bully, ensuring that the techniques are never used for the wrong reason.
