Raven's Ridge MMA's Youth program is designed to be an anti-bullying fitness program that will build self-confidence and provide for a good regime of exercise while also teaching self-defense. While it is important to avoid fights, it is not always possible. No parent ever wants their kid to be bullied in or outside of school. This program will allow kids to learn how to defend themselves if put into a bad position but also to understand the mentality of the bully.
All people want to be strong enough or knowledgeable enough to not only defend themselves, but to defend other people, whether it be siblings, friends, or strangers. The first step on this path is to learn how to defend themselves. What we teach at Raven's Ridge MMA are skills that will be kept for a lifetime. If your daughter goes off to college and is harassed, she will remember at least the basics of what we teach and will be able to get out of bad situations. If your son goes out on the playground with his sister and is harassed by bullies, he will always remember at least the basics of what we teach and will be able to protect himself as well as his sister.
Our program is a fun way to learn MMA for kids of all ages and we tailor the program to the individual. It doesn't matter what age of children are in the class, every single member will learn based on their individual skill level. We are here to build self-confidence, stay fit, and also have fun doing it.
We are not here to create bullies. We are here to create heroes who help other people. Come out and try it for a week to see why this is the best program in St. Louis for kids. Ages start at 6 and go up to 14.
