Dino’s Martial Arts for Children Ages 3 – 5

Our Dino’s classes have a specifically designed syllabus in Martial Arts for children aged 3-5 years.  We work on key skills for this age group such as co-ordination, balance and confidence.  We run these classes separately from our family classes so the group get the attention they need.  

Dangerous moves are not taught to the children, but lessons are no less fun and exciting. Children gain self-esteem, confidence, learn discipline and increase their martial art skills and knowledge.

Topics covered are:

  • Following instructions
  • Queuing and Taking turns
  • Learning to share
  • Child Confidence
  • Stretching & Strength
  • Speech and language skills
  • Co-ordination and stamina
  • Personal space
  • Motor skills development
  • Respect for others
  • Self-control
  • Child Socialisation


The benefits of young children learning a martial art, are important to everyday life. Martial Arts for children allow them to develop bundles of self-confidence and self-esteem which overflows into all areas of their lives.  Children become confident and well adjusted in social environments which aids development in key stages.

The core syllabus consists of the following grades:

  • Purple
  • Green
  • Blue
  • Red

Once completed the students will move to the advanced syllabus:

  • Bronze
  • Silver
  • Gold

Our venues have taken many years to find, and are in our opinion world class.  We strive to have the highest standards in training halls, rather than train at cheaper venues we would prefer to have better facilities for our students.  This is because we aim to keep students training for many years not a few months!  With this in mind we take the needs of our students seriously and refuse to train at venues with no consideration for the type of activity practised in Martial Arts.  All of our venues have either matted or sprung floors mean that students with pre-existing injuries can train in safety.
