Krav Maga Cubs Children’s Course (Ages 9 - 13)

Growing Together

Kids are growing up and facing very different times right now. Our children are being taught to be more and more passive in a world that is becoming more aggressive. This leaves them without the proper tools to defend themselves if they are subjected to assault. Traditional arts can be wonderful but seem to fall short more often than not when drilled in real world scenarios. TAC Brothers believes that children should be taught self protection with a tactical twist. Children are shown typical attacks and how to deal with them. They are taught to assess situations and defuse them as quickly as possible while keeping themselves as safe as possible. They learn to respect and deal with high risk scenarios and work towards a more safe position. In short, EVERY child should be involved in at least one camp.
