Our Jr. Grappler's Class is one of our fast growing classes. Students really learn to defend themselves on the ground. We are the only school in the area to offer such a unique program for children. It is safe and effective for children of all ages.
Our Jr. Grapplers class was created by Master Mark S. Kanaar to help children between the ages of 5-12 years old learn effective ways to defend themselves on the ground. Master Kanaar understands the benefits and disadvantages of learning only one Martial Art. He believes that a student should be able to effectively strike while in a stand up postition. Tae Kwon Do does an excellent job teaching children to defend themselves from a standing postion, but lacks defense while on the ground. That is why we offer this class once a week on Tuesday from 4:30pm-5:30pm. Students learn new ways to take people down and control them while in a grappling postition. Students learn to defend against takedown, arm bars, leg locks and chokes. Master Kanaar's goal is to help students to become a complete Martial Artist
