“Only in Danger, Not in Anger!”
The Hardline Kids Program is a fun and effective alternative to traditional martial arts. Like our adult program the material is taught in a way that enables the learning of skills in a short period of time, without the use of forms/katas. Our program teaches tools and techniques suitable for situations that our kids may come across at school, in the playground, or on the street.
In our classes we place an emphasis on the development of important character traits, such as: self-confidence to know what to do to if attacked and when to avoid a fight, courtesy to respect and value others, courage to be an “active bystander” stand up for those who cannot stand up for themselves.
Our system consists of realistic self-defense techniques that are effective not only against bullies, but unsafe adults as well. Important strategies for safety include: recognizing danger, speaking up, moving away from danger, getting help, and yes, physically defend against attacks.
