Matt Fiddes Martial Arts (Juniors)
Our main objective at Matt Fiddes Martial Arts Schools is to develop well-rounded students, not only at the Academy, but in society as well. This is why our schools teach the principles of Black Belt excellence. Not only do our students become Black Belts in Martial Arts, but also they strive to become academic Black Belts and eventually, corporate Black Belts or Black Belt employees. We use "Black Belt" as a metaphor for personal excellence.
The Mighty Matts programme is something really special designed to introduce young children aged from 3 to 6 to the fun and lessons that come from martial arts. Our goal is to nurture these young people in a safe environment and allow their characters and abilities to develop.
We believe that it is only proper to teach such young children in their own dedicated class without the distractions of older children. We want to give them the best possible martial arts education, support and care. We also believe that the early years are the most important and if you get them to understand the right values at this age you will set them up for life.
We teach the children how to develop respect and confidence, learn how to avoid strangers and pick up basic self-defence, how to avoid dangerous situations and how to defeat a bully without fighting.
Parents of the children in our Mighty Matt's classes tell us what great changes we make to the lives of these children. To find out why contact us and come and see a Mighty Matts class in action and talk parents about what their children get from the classes.
Classes are 30 minutes long and our instructors are especially trained to teach children of this age group. They are all CRB checked and completely committed to developing our Might Matt’s youngsters.
The junior programme is for kids aged 7-11 and is designed to give your child everything they need to thrive in life from physical fitness and confidence through to improved school work and respect for others.
Our classes are loved by the students, parents and their teachers because we make them fun and encourage the children to grow into young responsible adults in a natural way.
We hear a lot in the media about failing schools and children failing at school. Our aim is to give children and their schools a helping hand to get back on track. The Matt Fiddes Martial Arts Junior Programme works hand in hand with a child's schoolwork, providing improved self-discipline, self-confidence, concentration, mental alertness, co-operation, goal setting advice and anti-bully skills. Our instructors work with their students teachers to make sure they are achieving in the classroom as well as the martial arts gym. This is one of our unique features and why we are so successful in working with children. We are educators and not just martial arts teachers and we run "schools" and not "clubs".
