Since 1998 Anta’s Martial Arts Kids classes have been changing lives in Doral through their unique charter development, life skills, fitness and self defense classes
Anta’s Mixed Martial Art (MMA) reality based self defense curriculum for kids is the fusion of the best techniques of Kung Fu, Muay Thai Kickboxing, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Filipino Martial Arts, Boxing, Krav Maga and Bruce Lee’s Jeet Kune Do. We take the best of MMA it’s stand up and ground fighting techniques and the respect, discipline, life skills and belt ranking system of traditional martial arts to give your child the best martial arts experience in a safe environment. Your child will build the confidence to defeat the bully physically because he/she will know that there is nothing the bully could do in a fight or self defense situation since we will teach it all in class. We teach standup fighting, throws, takedowns ground fighting and how to escape from the most common attacks and holds a bully does.
Most martial arts schools have kids 3 year olds to 12 year olds in the same class. Some even have kids and teenagers together in the same class. The result is total chaos!
At Anta’s Fitness and Self Defense we know that children at different ages develop different skills, have a different mind set and go through different peer and social problems. Our classes are age appropriate. Our age appropriate martial arts and fitness kids classes are specifically tailored to what a child can handle at the appropriate age.
Based on a child’s psychology and neurology, we split kids up into specific age appropriate groups. That way children get what they needs to succeed and shine in the martial arts, fitness and in life. We have an age appropriate program for each member of your family. Our Little Ninjas program is tailored for the pre-school student ages 3 to 4 years old. Little Dragons are for kids 5 to 6 year old. For 5 to 10 year olds we have the Martial Arts Kids program.
Reality Based Martial Arts and Self Defense training will give your child the confidence and The “Anta’s Art of Fighting Without Fighting Anti-Bully” empowers them with the mental edge. Students at Anta’s are trained in non-violent conflict resolution through role playing and skits. Yet, we also teach our students scenario based reality based street defense with verbalization in case the bully does physically attack them. That is the difference between “Anta’s Art of Fighting without Fighting Anti-Bullyingtm” Program and other anti-bullying programs.
I, Julio Anta became the first instructor and is still the only person certified in Dr. Terrance Webster Doyle’s Bully Busters program in South Florida. After years of studying numerous anti-bullying programs, teaching and conducting anti-bullying workshops Anta developed his own Anti-bullying program. Anta is also the video author of “Anta’s Art of Fighting Without Fighting Anti-Bullying” DVD set.
Our training aims to give children a fighting chance against physically abusive adults, an abduction and sexual predators by increasing their awareness about potentially dangerous situations. Our sessions feature role playing scenarios in which children learn appropriate responses to danger, including setting verbal boundaries, running away, telling a trusted adult and calling 911. The classes and workshops will also introduce children to some of the physical resistance techniques they can use in the event they are confronted with unavoidable danger.
In 2003 head instructor Julio Anta a retired law enforcement officer and self defense expert was certified as a “National Security Alliance, Kid-Safe Network Agent”. “The Kid-Safe Network” is a non-profit child safety and danger awareness organization.
Anta’s Martial Arts Kids become more focused at school. They will gain the courage to raise their hands and ask more questions in school and not be intimidated by the school yard bully. Parents of our students are amazed on how respectful their children become at home, school and towards their peers. Anta’s Fitness and Self Defense has been changing lives in Doral since 1998.
