CHILDREN' CLASSES Here are some examples of how our program will benefit your child.
Self-Defense – The instructors at All Island Martial Arts have trained for many years to make sure everything we teach is reality based. At All Island Martial arts, we teach mixed martial arts. Our two main styles are Taekwondo and Aikido, However there are other styles that are infused in our curriculum. Our school is charter school through, Eastern USA International Martial Arts Association (E.U.S.A.I.M.A.A). Through this association our instructors have the opportunity to train with high ranking masters from multi systems throughout the world. Our chief instructor Mr. Hutchings also continues his martial arts training with his instructor. This allows our style to be current. Students will learn age-appropriate self-defense according to their age and rank.
Focusing – Martial arts practice helps to improve mental concentration and focus. Your child will be taught to concentrate on the present and not to get distracted easily. The physical exertion also helps to stretch and release tense muscles and while it burns excess energy making your child feels less anxious and stressed.
Teamwork, Leadership skills & Social Interaction – Cooperation is necessary for any young child to develop, therefore we intend that your child will develop an understanding and a confidence in their ability to work and communicate with others. At All Island Martial Arts, our activity based curriculum and teamwork oriented environment, develops character and teaches your child that the more we work together, the more we accomplish.
Leadership skills- After camouflage belt if your child chooses, he or she could have the opportunity to mentor. Our mentoring program will allow your child have a chance to to help out during classes. Our mentoring program is called SWAT which means Superior Winning Attitude Team. For a child to be able to participate in this team he or she must demonstrate a high level of personal integrity, a strong commitment to their own training, good character, and a desire to help out others.
Self-control, Discipline and Respect and Confidence – At all Island Martial Arts we teach our students in a structured system to improve self-control. We have developed a stripe system, whereby achievements must be satisfied to reach each their rank. Once a child has earned their rank thru hard work this boost their self confidence and self-esteem. If the student does not fulfill their rank requirements then they will not receive their stripes; therefore the student can’t be promoted to the next level.
First stripe is earned for basics techniques
Second stripe is earned for self-defense
Third stripe varies depending on the rank it could be form, board breaking, or sparring.
At all Island Martial Arts, our students have to earn a parent stripe. A parent stripe is a goal that is set by their parents. It could be used for disciplinary or for chores. The amount time is up for the parent. Once achieved, they can earn a red stripe. If the child does not keep on doing the good behavior then the stripe can be taken away.
Memorization and Retention – Memorization and Retention – At All Island Martial Arts, we develop a variety of skills that are both fun and effective that incorporate both memory and retention for both Martial Arts and real world applications.

At All Island Martial Arts, Your child will be more coordinated, less susceptible to injuries, and be much more aware of their body and how to use it correctly.
Social Skills and Friendship – Making friends is an important part of childhood. At All Island Martial Arts, we provide the positive atmosphere and family oriented activities necessary to help young children make new friends, while teaching them the concepts of sharing, compassion, and conflict resolution
Smile, Laugh and Having Fun – We learned a long time ago that kids learn faster when they are having fun. Keeping children interested in their Martial Arts training requires an element of fun and games. Traditionalists are usually only concerned with the discipline and structure of their training, but incorporating fun involving proper techniques will add to the value of training and keep the kids hungry to improve themselves even more. In addition to our regular classes we host numerous events for our students including picnics, holiday parties, buddy day and Free courses. At All Island Martial Arts, our youth have a great time meeting new friends while developing character and learning life-changing martial arts skills. Our Parents have fun with a staff and organization they can trust.
