Martial Arts Classes in Columbus

Extreme SKILLZ Program Enrolling Now

Columbus Martial Arts Academy is the perfect place for your 10 - 14-year-old! Students between the ages of 10 and 14 are both stronger and smarter than they know! They are physically competent and can excel in most physical challenges that are presented to them. We've discovered they spend a large amount of time focused on what is socially acceptable. This makes it difficult to keep 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 instability while at the same time building skills that set them up for success. If this is something you think your child needs, we've got just the thing right here in Columbus!

We cover one of the above skills per class (in order.) During each class we run a warm-up; deliver a mat chat about the skill; run two or three skill-building drills; and then we have them demonstrate the skill to earn their skill-stripe. They must earn all 8 skill-stripes in order to graduate to the next belt level. Once they earn their next belt they will continue to run through all 8 skills earning their skill-stripes with more challenging curriculum as they advance to each rank.

Here is an example of what a white belt must demonstrate for each of the 8 skills above in order to earn their next belt:

DEXTERITY: Demonstrating stages from memory. They must show the proper chambers and ending position for all of the moves in order to pass.

REACTION: Demonstrating basic single-hand grab escapes. They must apply the proper escape techniques within three seconds, four times in a row in order to pass.

VERSATILITY: Performing combinations of the stage 1 form. They must perform each move with proper chambers and execution in order to pass.

MOMENTUM: Demonstrating the three types of jump front kicks. They must show proper technique in each of the kicks, five times in a row in order to pass.

PRECISION: Palm strike board break. They must break a board with a palm strike in three shots or less in order to pass.

INSTINCT: Performing the first sparring combination on focus mitts. They must hit the mitts with proper technique, speed, and power, three times in a row in order to pass.

STRENGTH: Holding each static leg, arm, abdominal, and core exercise. They must not lose technique or else they have to start over. They must hold each exercise for no less than ten seconds in order to pass.

VISION: Reciting the definition and meaning behind courage. They must provide the correct answer while speaking confidently in order to pass.
