martial arts for toddlers


3-6 year olds
If you are looking for toddler karate classes or martial arts for toddlers, you and your child will LOOOOVVEEE our Little Ninjas Program. We teach the skills they need to be ready for school and prep.

They will learn how to focus, how to stand in line without touching each other, how to sit & listen, how to win a game (humbly) and how to lose a game (without crying). How to take turns. Also they will learn the skills of balance, co-ordination, memory skills and more.

As this age group usually have shorter attention spans, these classes are game-based learning. So whilst we may be teaching balance for the day – the students will think they are just playing games & having fun. But as the parent, you will see a marked improvement in their focus, listening and co-ordination.

Our Little Ninjas toddlers & prep martial arts classes will give your child a head-start for school.

martial arts for kids


At Focus Martial Arts, we specialise in kids martial arts classes. Instead of just karate lessons for kids or taekwondo classes for kids – we have actually taken the elements of various martial arts that work on a bigger stronger opponent. So they are perfect for kids.

We have made sure that they are easy to apply (as some techniques are quite technical & just too complicated for kids). In our classes, students learn that it easy for kids to protect themselves with skills and techniques they can easily and quickly use on a bigger stronger person. And then we mix it with just the right amount of fitness and fun… so your child keeps wanting to come back.

martial arts classes


We love these classes. We believe that ‘A Family That Kicks Together, Sticks Together’. These classes are challenging for both kids and adults. At times parents will get to practice and train with their child. Which is a great bonding experience. Then at other times you will separate when appropriate to develop skills at your own level. Sometimes parents may be ahead and progressing faster, sometimes it’s the kids. Overall, everyone is having fun & learning great life-skills together.

As martial arts instructors, we find this is an awesome time for kids to learn from their parents how to handle various common life situations. For example - What you do when things get harder to learn. Do you give up, or press on?​

Why Choose Martial Arts?

Individual Sport vs Team Sport

With martial arts lessons, a student progresses through the belts at their own pace. They only compete with themselves, whilst having fun in a group environment. This builds confidence, perseverance and leadership in every student - not just the ones that are best on a team.

Imagine the impact a child feels when they feel like they let the whole team down.

You want to build your child’s confidence and self esteem, but if they are not one of the best players on a team, that sport can actually reduce their confidence.

As a leading Brisbane Martial Arts Academy, the staff and instructors are dedicated to helping achieve your goals, or the goals you have for your child ,by partnering with you to 'Teach Your Child Positive Family Values’.

We love martial arts and teaching kids martial arts. We get such satisfaction in seeing a child’s confidence build when they realize they can do sport, that they can achieve the difficult skills and kicks, by putting in some effort and not giving up.

We love it when a parent shares how proud they are of their child, with their improvement at school because of the focus they have learnt in their martial arts classes, or how their manners and positive attitude at home has really improved – due to the ‘Black Belt Attitude Standards’ they learn when practicing their self defence classes at Focus Martial Arts Brisbane.

Many parents can struggle at times with teaching and guiding their children to be happy, positive and kind people. Studies have proven that the benefits of martial arts taught with an underlying basis of character development are outstanding.
