Martial Arts, Games and Fitness Academy runs a number of martial and fitness related activities. ACS Mini Ninjas is not a martial arts club, as we feel young children don’t understand the complexities of martial arts training and what it represents in terms of complicated practice and safety, however, in essence, ACS MINI NINJAS is an introduction to martial arts and self defence without all that stuffy, disciplined marching up and down boring punching thin air stuff!
We want the kids to have fun, play games and make lots of noise. That said, it’s still important to learn some of the basic values usually associated with a martial arts clubs. At our ACS MiniNinja sessions we use 3 important guiding principles:
"I bring my Son to ACS Magfa's Mini Ninjas lessons weekly. He absolutely loves coming to the class every week. My Son normally struggles to engage with children at his school but at Mini Ninjas he really gets stuck in and enjoys himself with the other children. Sensei David works hard to deliver a class that's fun but that also incorporates early basic self defence skills.. Highly recommended!"
Everything we do is geared towards the children’s safety, this means that instructors and coaches must recognise elements or conditions of unsafe play quickly and halt proceedings accordingly to address the situation. In many instances, because the message is key to all activities undertaken in our Minininja sessions, the children will often highlight or address an issue of safety themselves and of course there's the added benefit derived from exercise.
Participants get a sticker book to record several skill tasks - once completed they get a white martial arts belt. And we have t-shirts available to buy.
