OUR KIDS PROGRAMS

We can start training kids as young as 3! Our programs include Mini Ninjas, Little Ninjas, Youth Beginners, and an Intermediate & Advanced class. There is a lot of room for growth in the Valor program, once a child is approved by one of our instructors, they can join our Leadership Team or our Competition Team and begin competing! Kids benefit immensely from the discipline of Martial Arts. The instructor serves as a role model, someone the kids can trust and look up to. Beyond the benefits of regular exercise and self discipline, our program serves as a local community where kids are encouraged to be themselves and challenge each other. We have classes every day of the week. Call, email or drop by to inquire about memberships!
