While our primary focus is on self-defense skills, our children's program teaches discipline, concentration, teamwork and communication skills. Coach Overby has two children of his own and feels very passionately about teaching technique in combination with valuable lessons that will help his young students in and outside the gym.
At 5 Elements, we use modified stick fighting to teach children the complete fundamentals of martial arts without risking injury or compromising their martial arts education. Other gyms may use shadow boxing or point sparring because of safety concerns, however, we have invested a lot of time into creating a program that not only protects our young students but also allows them the full authentic experience at a young age.
If you have questions about our children's program or would like to tell us about your child's needs, we'd love to hear from you.
