We initially enrolled our 7 year old son at Neutral Ground in Grafton for his birthday. One year later, he looks forward to coming into practice two times per week, because he feels welcome and safe to explore. The staff, and instructors are excellent with the children, and even more importantly, continue to improve as coaches. I personally have bennifited as a parent watching these classes and sharing these moments with my son.

Highly recommended

My daughter started with Little Ninja class last August. Through this program at Neutral Ground, she has grown more attentive, more confident, better disciplined, and not to mention physically stronger. She now is competing in Grappling Competitions. I've joined Kickboxing/MMA class and lost a decent amount of weight recently as well. Neutral Ground is an extension of our family, and you should come check us out!

I highly recommend Neutral Ground. My daughter is in the Little Ninjas class and LOVES it. We've tried other things (dance, ice skating, karate) and nothing ever really kept her engaged. This does. I really can't say enough great things about this place.

We couldn’t be happier at Neutral Ground in Grafton! We started with a 6-week trial in 2016 and have been at the dojo 2 to 5 hours every week since! The positive atmosphere, paired with inclusive, supportive and highly skilled staff, creates an environment where the lessons learned go beyond technique on the mat. Neutral Ground not only teaches self-defense, takedowns and submissions; coaches and kids embrace confidence, respect, empathy, integrity and discipline for themselves and others. Win or learn, we grow together.

This place offers more to our life than Martial Arts. Our 9 year old son has finally found something he loves to do and it is helping him to become a stronger person mentally, emotionally, and physically. We love the character traits of the month and the powerful projects that the kids are working on that make them think about morals and what it means to have good character and be respectful! Highly recommend.

We enrolled our son at neutral ground more than a year ago. In that short amount of time I have seen my son make leaps and bounds both physically, and in the way he shows confidence, maturity, and hard work both on and off the mat. The owner, coaches, and the people and kids that train there are second to none. Now both myself and my son train there regularly and I have lost 60 lbs from training, and more importantly we have fun! Tannar and I love training here and would definitely recommend it to anyone.

Does Your Child Need A Supportive, Educational, and Fun Activity?

Learning Martial Arts Teaches Young Kids Life Skills While They Have Fun

Young children are curious and active – and they sometimes have difficulty learning to control their bodies and their behavior. They crave structure and thrive in an environment that’s supportive, educational, and fun.

Does your young child

struggle with these things?

They struggle to maintain control of their movements and may be unintentionally destructive.

They find it difficult to focus on a task or to see it through to the end.

They have a hard time sharing their belongings and getting along with other kids.

Parenting young children is a real challenge.

You must balance their natural inquisitiveness and high energy with trying to teach them the basic skills they need for school and life.

Discipline, sharing, and self-control are all things they need to learn to be successful.

The ideal setting is one that’s got some structure but works with kids at their current developmental level. If they have fun while they’re learning, they’ll be more likely to retain those lessons and learn the skills they need.

Results and growth with every class!

Studying martial arts is ideal for young children. It provides them with an outlet for their energy. But, it also teaches them about respect, discipline, and other core values that will go with them beyond the dojo. Junior martial arts classes teach kids to control their movements and behavior, and they’ll learn social skills and interaction at the same time.

Studying Martial Arts Builds Physical Coordination and Control

Young children who learn martial arts find out quickly that each movement must be intentional. They learn to control their movements to the best of their ability.

They also practice hand-eye coordination and learn about their bodies. That means they’ll be less likely to be unintentionally destructive.

Young Martial Arts Students Learn How to Focus

Getting young kids to pay attention can feel like an impossible task. The structure of our martial arts classes shows kids the importance of focus and teaches them by having them apply it to easily-achievable tasks.

The focus they learn in the dojo is something they’ll take home – and into the classroom. That’s why kids who study martial arts tend to be good students, too.

Martial Arts Helps Kids Learn to Deal with Frustration

Martial arts instruction requires students to pursue goals to earn new belts. Young kids can easily become frustrated when they don’t get what they want, but studying martial arts helps them learn the power of persistence.

The physical activity in our classes also helps kids manage stress and anxiety by allowing them to burn it off in a safe and constructive way.

Kids Who Study Martial Arts Learn Good Sportsmanship

Losing is not anybody’s idea of fun, but we all need to learn how to accept a defeat gracefully and move on. We teach students that losing is part of life – and it’s what you do after you lose that tells people who you are.

Even though martial arts is an individual sport, we cultivate an environment of supportive teamwork where students root for one another.

FAQs

My child still has temper tantrums and I’m worried about how they’ll behave in school. Can studying martial arts help?

Yes, it can. We help children learn the importance of emotional control and respect for others. These are lessons that will help them in the classroom, too.

Will studying martial arts help my child learn how to interact with others and share?

Yes. Even though studying martial arts is an individual pursuit, we teach kids to learn in a collaborative environment with an emphasis on sharing, cooperation, and teamwork.

My child zones out in class and misses important instructions. Can taking martial arts classes help them do a better job of focusing?

Yes. Part of martial arts training is teaching kids to be mindful of themselves and their surroundings. They must focus to succeed in class, and once they learn to do it, they’ll be able to do the same thing at school.

My child is out of control physically, and can be very destructive. How will studying martial arts help?

Martial arts instruction focuses on hand-eye coordination, control, and strength. As kids learn basic moves and then advance, they learn how to control their bodies and movements.

My child gives up easily when frustrated. I want them to learn persistence. Can your classes help?

Yes. It’s common for students to require more than one attempt to earn a new belt. We teach them that trying is the most important thing – and that persistence pays off.

My child is disrespectful to me and to other caregivers. How can studying martial arts change that?

Respect is at the core of everything we do in the dojo. Kids who study martial arts must respect their instructors and fellow students, and we find that they learn to respect parents, teachers, caregivers, and siblings at the same time.
