Kids Vanguard Krav Maga®

Respect. integrity. confidence.

Our Vanguard Krav Maga® Kids program is a self defense fighting system that emphasizes the importance of environmental awareness, based on first avoiding any physical confrontation, which is an important lesson for kids to know when presented with potential risks. If the situation escalates, this is when Vanguard Krav Maga® teaches swift and aggressive reactions that allow the child to defuse the situation safely and quickly to get out of danger. In addition to teaching kids self defense techniques, we also incorporated a fitness aspect into the classes. This combination of self defense and fitness provide some of the best tools for defense for younger individuals to avoid physical threats.

Age Requirement: 6-12 years of age. If your child is 12-17, they can matriculate into the adult Krav Maga program.

The goal of our Youth Self Defense & Fitness program is to give your child a solid foundation in the fundamentals of personal protection by utilizing the principles of Krav Maga. We are here to teach them to be aware of their environment and make educated decisions on potentially dangerous or harmful situations.

At the Academy of Self Defense, we believe in providing self defense courses for interested students. In addition to live in-person training, we also provide an extensive library of online self defense and fitness videos and live classes for kids to help them learn the best ways to protect themselves in real-life scenarios. Our Krav Maga self defense videos are great tools to teach kids the best ways to protect themselves.
