How we will help your child

Here are a few benefits you can expect and things they will learn when they take a Kid's Martial Arts class

Basic self defense



Fitness & Health



Bully Prevention


Multicultural martial arts

Improved Grades



Your kids will experience unbelievable physical and mental benefits!


Respect for self.  Respect for others.

Our multi-cultural approach to martial art allows us to create an always evolving, always interesting experience for kids of all ages.

Kids will learn about, experience and integrate elements from the martial cultural heritage of Thailand, China, the Philippines, France, Brazil and more.

One of the biggest lessons they’ll learn is that the different arts and cultures each have something to offer and when they work together something beautiful happens.

Confidence to succeed in school and in life.

As kids learn the martial arts they gain control of their bodies, build up their confidence in defending themselves, the self-respect and pride of overcoming their fears and setting and accomplishing goals. The psychological benefits are first to manifest. Psychologists agree that the need for ‘safety’ is paramount for human beings to thrive.

Pretty soon the anxiety about bullies and other stress begins to melt away and they can focus on school and just being a kid.


Self discipline, determination and focus.

Martial arts practice is absolutely THE best activity to create happy and healthy kids and future adults. We believe all people have unlimited potential and that it is our job to bring that out. Each age group: Junior, and Teen, will be given challenges appropriate for their age level to help them achieve their greatest potential.

We will help your child to feel more secure through knowledge of self defense. Using the techniques of the martial arts, from basic to advanced, your child will learn physical attributes such as coordination, balance, fitness and self-defense as well as lasting life skills such as focus, confidence, respect, persistence, teamwork, and kindness.

Self discipline, determination and focus.

As the students learn and progress they will earn belts at the beginner, advanced beginner and intermediate levels. After these accomplishments the final push towards Black Belt will be made by upgrading to the Black Belt Club for one more day of training each week.

Complimentary Training – Open Gym

Every Friday from 4:30 to 5:00 pm, the floor is reserved for Juniors and Teens to come in to train and practice. Instructors will be on the mat to help out, answer questions, and facilitate training. This is a great time for students to prepare for tests, test for colored tips, or work on a move that they are having trouble with.

MKG karate inspired classes in SeattleFor the more dedicated student we also have additional programs such as a Demo Team, Black Belt Club, Leadership Development, and more designed for youth and teen students who have demonstrated an outstanding effort and want to take their training to the next level.  We also try to develop a deeper appreciation of the martial arts and an alternative image of MMA we call True MMA.  Rather than create a method of mixed martial arts to compete in the ring we try to emulate our adult programs and teach our BBC members to appreciate the deeper levels of artistry embodied in our mission statement: True MMA.


Black Belt club is MKG’s Advanced class for the Junior and Teen programs. In Black Belt Club students are challenged to work at a harder pace, and given material of a more difficult nature. Any student of Orange Belt or higher can inquire about joining Black Belt Club. Held on Saturday mornings from 9:00 till 10:00 am, Black Belt Club students are given a special uniform to indicate their dedication to the arts, and are given free admission to the Friday Seminars that are held throughout the year.


Leadership team is a group of advanced students who have chosen to learn new skills to help teach martial arts to other students. Student leaders assist in classes with younger or less experienced students in order to provide more personal instruction and encouragement. These students learn valuable communication and teaching skills while also learning to serve others. Serving others provides leaders with the opportunity to develop patience, humility and kindness. These traits are essential to students who aspire to be a true black belt of the martial arts.

Leadership team is only open to students who demonstrate leadership qualities in their classes already. Any student with a Blue Belt or higher can request to be admitted to leadership team. Any student with an Orange Belt or higher can be invited by the instructors to join the leadership team.
