- Martial Arts
Our Family martial arts classes are some of our most popular classes where families train together in the same class. Children from the age of 7 are allowed to take part in these classes with no limit on adult age. Children often train with their brothers, sisters, cousins, parents, aunties, uncles, and even grandparents.
It is rather a unique opportunity to train and grade as a family at the same time and event. There is an enormous amount of family pride in learning new skills together and rising through the grading belts. And everyone makes new friends in the classes.
Our energetic classes, and body confident message, helps children and adults alike be fit and healthy and helps with their mental health.
Some of our members have done lots of different sports before, some have not. Some have done other martial arts although the vast majority have not. Some have done very little sporting activity before. It matters not, all are welcome and will settle in quickly to our friendly classes.
Our new members quickly make good friendships with their fellow students. Different age groups are grouped together and we closely monitor classes to ensure that our students are with others of a similar level of experience and that they are happy and comfortable.
Students will usually work together in pairs, or small groups, with lots of different activities and techniques in each class to keep it interesting and engaging.
The training for older children and adults also includes how to protect yourself from attacks with weapons like knives, bats, bottles, etc. The training is handled sensitively and everyone progresses at a rate that is right for them. We use a team of different instructors, with different skill sets and martial arts experience, to ensure all of our students get a rounded education and learn only the very best and most effective techniques.
If you’re interested in coming along to one of our family martial arts classes you would be made very welcome. We have Academies based in Liverpool and you can book a FREE TWO WEEK TRIAL lesson with no obligation, or you can call us on 0151 601 5455 if you have any questions.
My children (7 and 6) absolutely love attending MMA Defence (Little Lions). The sessions are well structured with excellent instructors that have positive influence on the children’s progression. The ethos is clear; the sessions objectives are clear on building children’s confidence emotionally together with the physical aspect of defending oneself. In addition, the sessions continue to build on maintaining self discipline and promoting respect for all.
You all should pat yourselves on the back for continuing such a great standard of instruction through what is proving to be a difficult time for all – you have been our stability through the weeks and months. Thanks for all you do, it is much appreciated.
My 6 year old joined in about September he absolutely loves it, it has really brought out his confidence. The instructors are amazing too.
MMA Defence classes are absolutely fantastic. The team are friendly, accommodating and do an amazing job. Great atmosphere, good syllabus structure and they offer grading to encourage progression and self positivity.
The classes are really good. The team who take the classes make you feel welcome.
From 6 to 60 everyone is welcome and I’ve learned so much the past few months and feel so much better in myself. To be honest I’m sorry I didn’t do something like this 20 or so years ago. Best thing I’ve ever done for myself and feel like I’m learning as well as achieving something.
If you train under the instructors here, then you will learn. I guarantee that you’ll leave each session with a new and effective skill that will help you in later life. The instructors are excellent, as they know what they’re talking about and they work with you every step of the way. I couldn’t be happier to train under them at this MMA school
From our first enquiry regarding joining the MMA classes, we were made to feel valued and welcome. They took time to phone me and talk through the programme and what was on offer.
My 8 year old son and I attended our first session and were welcomed and looked after so well. We love the classes and the friendly staff and structured programme. Definitely happy to recommend.
The MMA Defence team is like a big family; they’re always welcoming, cheerful and encouraging. I attend classes with my two daughters aged 10 and 7. We are constantly pushing ourselves and developing in fitness and confidence. We always leave classes feeling so pumped and proud of ourselves.
We thoroughly enjoy our time at MMA Defence. The team of instructors are first rate. They manage to make every session enjoyable but also individually challenging, working towards your own limits. There’s a broad age range of members who are catered for professionally but in a fun way. We would recommend joining us, no matter your age or fitness level.
Exactly how I wanted it to be.
First session and straight into learning.
The club is very friendly and welcoming which means a lot if you are coming in as a beginner in MMA or any type of fitness training. The instructors are always on hand to help and allow you to go at your own pace. It’s a fantastic mix of training and skills that makes it fun and exciting to progress in and keep you motivated. I would recommend anyone to give it a go!
The club is ideal for all ages, very welcoming, without judgement over abilities or fitness.
The instructors are all about encouraging, not shouting at or telling students off. You come away from the classes on a high and knackered, it’s exercising in an enjoyable and fun way.
As a 52 year old unfit parent, I highly recommend these classes.
You’re all doing a great job. I try to spread the word near and far for you.
