Kids & Teens Programs



Kids (ages 5-8)

Our specialised kid's program is an age-specific curriculum that is professionally designed to teach children important life skills in a fun, exciting and enriching manner. The secret to teaching your child coordination, concentration and self-control is doing it in a fun and inclusive way.



Preteens (ages 9-12)

Whether your teen is a total beginner or already has experience in other martial arts, our BJJ classes will deliver benefits that extend beyond fitness and techniques. We help improve self-confidence, coordination, flexibility, self-control, and discipline. BJJ classes are also a great way to make friends. The recognition gained from peers for the student's effort and progress on the mats is an extra confidence booster.



Teen (ages 13-17)

Our Teens program is developed to empower your child, and at the same time nurture them in a fun, respectful and safe “family” environment. Our classes teach them how to stand up for themselves and become champions on and off the mats. Your child will build confidence, develop body coordination & awareness, but will also learn the importance of respect, humbleness, discipline, focus, commitment, perseverance & resilience. The head coach behind this program is very skilled and an experienced instructor. Leonardo Machado is a 3rd degree black belt with over 20 years of BJJ experience


AMAYDA Resilience Programs

The AMAYDA Youth Empowerment Programs focus on teaching all children Self-Discipline, Respect and Integrity and those children experiencing bullying, Confidence, Resilience and Courage all with amazing results!


Krav Maga Preteen (ages 9-12)

Nine to twelve year old’s, love physical activity and anything involving play. They have a rich imagination and a strong desire to be less dependent on their usual caregivers. We provide them with their own program that targets their stage of development in a manner that keeps them entertained while at the same time building skills that set them up for success.


Krav Maga Teen (ages 10-16)

Ten to sixteen year olds are physically competent and can excel in most physical challenges that are presented to them. The problem we discovered is that they are focused on what is socially acceptable, and they have a hard time keeping themselves emotionally driven to the task at hand. The solution we found is to provide them with their own program that targets their stage of development in a manner that nurtures their social and emotional stability while at the same time building self-defence and anti-bullying skills that set them up for success.

All programs are conducted in a safe and active manner taught by a Team of experienced, professional and qualified instructors.

All of our instructors are passionate about passing on their knowledge to our next generation.

Group Yoga

Yoga is all about the connection between breath and movement. Throughout the flow — the movement from pose to pose — the goal is to be aware of the breath and move when the breath moves. On an inhale you move into one pose, then on the exhale you transition. Breath is also essential when holding a yoga pose. You take long, deep breaths to maintain the pose, even as it gets difficult to do so.

Yoga teaches you how to harness the breath to power movement and to use the breath to alleviate discomfort. These skills are essential for a good BJJ game. When you’re stuck in a disadvantageous position, you can use breath to help you explode out. When you’re stuck and you can’t figure out how to reverse the position, you pause and breathe instead of struggling.


Krav Maga

Kaizen offers a structured and practical approach to learning the world’s most effective reality-based self defence system. Our training focuses on efficient methods to acquire defensive tactics and techniques in a safe and friendly environment. Dean has been a certified Krav Maga Instructor since 2010, through British Krav Maga Association and more recently Krav Maga Global with Eyal Yanilov

We provide an effective framework to measure progress and ensure our people are challenged and stimulated with learning tactics and techniques that mirror the most common problems faced by good citizens going about their daily lives.
