The Little Titans is the first Krav Maga school for children in Bristol, an offshoot of our Parent club the Bristol Titans.
We first began teaching children in 2013 as we wanted our own kids to have somewhere they could go to learn a realistic and modern self defence system.
We didnt want our kids learning a traditional martial art as they rarely reflect todays modern issues and we didnt want them learning a sport as often in the case of sport the goal is to dominate your opponent, something I didn’t want my (then 4 year old to be pushed towards.
Instead we wanted a system which would teach all the foundations of the best sports (boxing, muay thai, BJJ) and which had all the discipline of a traditional martial art but didnt promote or encourage unnecessary violence, instead having an emphasis on avoidance, escape or negotiation.
And so on this basis, we founded the Little Titans.
THE LITTLE TITANS
Krav Maga Kids classes cover the same tools and drills used by professional fighters. This fast-moving class features a combination of fitness and pad work drills combined to develop speed, endurance, agility and mobility.
Kids classes feature:
Focus pad training – stand up striking, how to use punches, kicks, knees and elbows. How to block and how to move.
Thai Pad training – how to use the clinch as a defensive and attacking tool, the thai pads are also great for developing power
Using our MMA background we train using the most modern practices and methodology to develop power, speed, endurance and explosiveness
Mobility work – to develop range of movement
Our groundfighting system in Krav Maga is designed for the street, so the student learns how to defend against strikes on the ground
Please arrive to the class ten minutes early so that our instructors are able to introduce themselves to you and your child.
Unfortunately due to the popularity of our class we are unable to take drop in students. Bookings are by appointment only.
Beginners are most welcome. No experience is required.
